Verizon Motorola Droid X makes TV appearance

Droid X Verizon 1Can’t wait ’til July 15 to see the Droid X?  Well aren’t you lucky because here are some screen grabs from the Verizon “Rile The Air” commercial that aired tonight.  The images on the screen of this Droid X were simulated, but you get a great sense of how big that expansive widescreen of Motorola and Verizon’s latest Android smartphone really is.  Can’t wait.

Virgin Mobile Beyond Talk is a beyond amazing deal – Update: now with review!

LG Rumor Touch Virgin MobileWay back in May, before things like the the World Cup, iPhone 4 and Summer happened, Virgin Mobile announced its Beyond Talk contract-free cellphone plans.  These pay-monthly-until-you-choose-to-stop plans provide unlimited text, email, data and web starting at a crayzeee $25, and come with with fewer taxes than typical monthly contract plans.

I recently purchased an LG Rumor Touch for $149, which is a 3″ touchscreen smart-feature-phone with a hardware keyboard and put it on a Beyond Talk plan to see what all the fuss is about.  I’ll fill you in on my experiences shortly but, as I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s hard to say no to unlimited data plus 300 minutes for only $25 or 1,200 minutes for $40…just as long as you can live with the limited phone selection.

Update – here’s the review: Virgin Mobile LG Rumor Touch review
