Motorola together with Google have officially taken the wraps off the new Droid X for Verizon. An upgraded Motorola Droid with a bunch of new specs and features, the Droid X will debut on Big Red for $199 with a two new year contract ($100 mail-in rebate included), starting July 15th.

Customers looking to buy the new Motorola Droid X on Verizon should also know that a $29.99 data plan is required, and for those of you who’d like a mobile hotspot plan, that’s $20 more for 2GB of data. Another interesting thing is that anyone (not just those who already own a Droid, like Apple did with their new iPhone 4) with a contract ending sometime in 2010, will be eligible for a special upgrade discount to get the X.

Regarding specs and features, the new Motorola Droid X for Verizon comes with a lovely 4.3-inch 854×480 touchscreen display, runs Android 2.1with an all-new UI, and packs a 1GHz TI OMAP3640 processor under the hood. Adding to the goodies list is an 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash capable of 720p HD video recording, HDMI out, 8 GB of built-in storage (expandable up to 32GB) and the fact that Android 2.2 Froyo with Adobe Flash 10.1 support will be coming later this summer as an upgrade.

So how `bout it folks, are you going to forget about the new iPhone 4 or the HTC EVO 4G and buy Verizon’s new Motorola Droid X?

On top of that we’re hearing that the Droid X is going to feature a Swype multitouch keyboard,
