Droid X, Still Available Online
The Droid X, launched on July 15th, was almost immediately sold out. Just about two weeks later, Verizon is still struggling to get it back on shelves.
“There are still small inventories available,” said cell phone consultant Chris Andrews, "But it can be really hard to find them. The Droid X has been a huge hit with consumers.”
Andrews, who tracks cell phone availability and pricing on his website, says the Droid X is still available at a price of $179 (with purchase of a two year Verizon plan).

While Verizon itself is sold out, ”Some Verizon authorized dealers bought huge inventories up front,” according to Andrews, ”even those supplies are dwindling down.”
The Droid X situation mirrors Verizon’s inventory issues with it’s Android based Droid Incredible. Both are backordered into August shipping dates. This even though Verizon had assured consumers that they had plenty of Droid X in stock and a second wave of inventory ready to go.
With the popularity of the Droid X, some analyst have speculated that part of the Droid X shortage may be caused by consumers with Droid Incredible backorders switching to the Droid X. Something that would have been avoided if the supply chain was in better shape.
“For consumers that miss out on getting the Droid X while it’s still available online, the only choice left will be backordering, either online or in stores,” stated Andrews, "But there is no telling exactly how long the wait may be.”
