The Motorola Droid X looked to get off to a great start but a number of reports of screen problems reminded us of the antenna issue that has rocked Apple and its new iPhone 4. Alan Ng went into detail about the latest Droid handset and how it could be its AntennaGate, but we are not convinced that the issue is that big of a problem.
We do not believe that the issue with Apple is as big as the media makes it out to be. Yes we know there is an issue, but how come it has not been affecting sales — much the same as the Droid X sales. They have remained strong throughout these recent screen problems.
Verizon has had to not only keep us updated with what they plan to do about the screen issue, but also with its stock as well. On a number of occasions the Motorola Droid X has sold out, and this could also be the case when the Droid 2 is released next month.
Big Red has yet to release any sales figures for the Droid X, but they hope that they will be as impressive as the top selling Android handset of all time, the original Droid. Have you still been buying the Droid X knowing that the smartphone has issues with its screen?
