We can stop with the leaks now, as Verizon Wireless officially introduced the Motorola Droid X2 today.

The Droid X2 will be available online starting May 19 and in stores on May 26 for $199.99 with a two-year contract, replacing the aging Motorola Droid X. As the successor to the Droid X, the X2 ups the ante with a 4.3-inch, scratch-resistant qHD touch screen and Nvidia's Tegra 2 dual-core processor--Verizon's first.

The Android 2.2 device (upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread) also has an 8-megapixel camera with continuous auto focus, and Motorola says the camera delivers 44 percent faster shot-to-shot performance than its predecessor. In addition, it's capable of HD video capture, and the Droid X2 has HDMI output with Mirror Mode, so you can view and share photos, videos, and downloaded movies on your HD TV.

The usual wireless options are there, but the Droid X2 is 3G-only, which will surely disappoint some. It can be used as a mobile hot spot for up to five devices, however. Other features of note include 8GB of onboard memory, a preinstalled 8GB microSD card, and a 1,540mAh user-replaceable battery with a rated talk time of 8 hours and 9 days of standby time.
