Verizon posts Droid X teaser site

Well, it looks like we don't have to wait till June 23 to learn the identity of Verizon's next Droid phone, as the carrier has published a teaser site for the Droid X.

Well, this certainly takes some of the mystery out of the June 23 event , but now we know that Verizon's next Droid model will be the Droid X. The carrier posted a teaser site for the handset on Thursday morning with some little nuggets of information. When you rollover the center image on Verizon's site, you'll see that the Droid X will have HDMI output, a 4.3-inch display, and a "720P screen." A 720p resolution screen? As CNET reader Adam T. rightfully asks, "Do you think it's a typo?" Though we are inclined to believe it's either that or a marketing bungle (perhaps Verizon meant 720p output over HDMI), if true, that would be phenomenal.

Update: It looks like Verizon caught wind of its error, as it has now clarified what was meant by "720P screen." When you roll over the Droid X image on its site now, the text reads, "Captures 720p," referring to the phone's video-recording capabilities.
