The Droid X doesn't officially come out until Thursday, but some people who got their pre-orders in have been receiving an unexpected package over the last few days, with their Droid X inside.
Apparently, Verizon "accidentally" shipped out 170 Droid X phones last week to customers who had pre-ordered the device directly from the mobile service provider. Verizon has said that those customers can go ahead and activate the phone.

For the thousands of others who pre-ordered with Verizon, or through Best Buy or Radio Shack, the waiting game continues for the most hotly anticipated phone launch since the iPhone 4 (which, granted, was just last month).

The Droid X is the successor to the Droid, which has easily become the most successful Android phone to date and ranks second only behind the iPhone in all mobile sales in the US.

The phone has an 8 MP camera, 8 GB of storage, and a 1 GHz processor, making it one of the most powerful Android phones to date. And it's reasonably priced, at just $200 after a $100 rebate.
