It seems that Verizon underestimated how popular its Droid X phone was going to be. Despite unequivicoally saying that the Droid X supply was sufficient, by the end of the launch day there were no more units available.
Online orders are now being put on hold until July 23, and Verizon retail stores along with Best Buy and Radio Shack are reporting very limited or no availability.

The Droid X is the official successor to Motorola's Droid, the best-selling Android handset in the 2-year lifespan of the operating system.

It's possible that the Droid X sold through the roof because of the recent volcano of negative press surrounding the iPhone 4. The iPhone's antenna bug that can cause calls to be dropped instantly if the phone is held a certain way, is something that is not an issue for the Droid X.
