Verizon Shipping Motorola Droid X Early?

July 6, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

We’re not really even sure where to go with this because it might be the oddest Droid X news we’ve reported, but one of our readers just sent in photos of what appears to be a Droid X straight from Verizon Wireless Customer Care.  His brother, who lives in Texas received the device today after calling Verizon and somehow setting up an order.  Weird right?

Well get this.  As I was typing this post out, I received another email from someone in Huntsville, AL who works at a Verizon call center and has reported that they just took a call from someone who had some questions about the new Droid X which just showed up on their doorstep.  After hitting up some other reps in his center, they too are reporting more than a few calls of people trying to activate Droid X devices.

We’re also starting to believe that the @DroidLanding Twitter account is somehow reporting early deliveries of devices rather than clues to a scavenger hunt.  While this is just a loose theory, it could explain why we keep seeing new devices referenced on that account in the 20s.

And check out this tweet specifically from 4 hours ago which references a state that could be Texas.  The timing of this runs pretty close with the email we received from our original tipster…

To attempt to debunk this, we made a call to the consumer sales number of Verizon and were turned down.  The rep we spoke with said that a VZW pre-sale is not coming and that I would have to wait until the 15th when the DX hit stores.  So on our end, we were unable to confirm the ability to purchase one early.

Stay tuned for more…
