Droid X Is A Hit, Sold Out Online.

Droid X Is A Hit
While Steve Jobs is telling how iPhone 4 is not perfect and giving a free bumper, Droids seem to be on march! Droid X has sold out! Verizon has said the demand exceeded the supplies and the shelves are empty.
Carrier was quick to point out that here is no shortage, but the online stock has depleted sooner than they expected. The Droid X, is a hot smartphone awaited by many, after the hyped up iPhone 4 fell below the expectations. The phone is $200, after a $100 online discount on Verizon's site. It comes with 4.3" display, an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, and runs a 1GHz Snapdragon processor with Android 2.1 on board to make life easier for road warriors.
On the scary side, the Droid X comes with a chip called eFuse, it's job is to verify if the user is using the correct software shipped with the devices, or approved by the manufacturer. If the check fails, the phone is rendered useless. But it seems the initial fears are not dire as they seem and gifted programmers will be able to overcome the limitations. Motorola seem to be not liking users easily altering the phone.
Now it is time to watch if Droid X will be able to beat or match, the iPhone 4's 1.7 million sale. I would also like to know how many of those 1.7Million iPhone 4s were returned. (PSST it is about 300,000 according to BGR, they say the return rate is about 1.7%.)
