Given that a picture is worth a thousand words, what does it mean when a photo of the Droid X2 looks indistinguishable from one of the Droid X? This riddle has vexed us since the phone's first appearance, forcing us to report conflicting specs (in the same article, even), given only a familiar facade as evidence. Thankfully, we've now come across the X2's first video which proves this device has earned its name -- Moto's revision is dual-core. While we're still waiting on full specs and a release date, the news could be welcome by Verizon fans hoping to double their processing power sooner rather than later. Although we're plenty confident of this phone's capabilities, the interface appears to be lagging in the video. Perhaps it's using a new prototype dual-core Z80 instead of a Tegra 2? Click play after the break to see what we mean.
