The iPhone 4 and the Droid X may have the future of mobile in their hands

Predator phones

Mobile computing was handed off to a new generation of devices this week. On Wednesday Apple described the new iPhone 4 as 'the biggest leap since the original iPhone'. The blog Digital Trends provided a good rundown of the phone's new features. One of the most highly anticipated is multi-tasking, but Engadget used their review to point out that it is perhaps better described as the illusion of multi tasking. The most apparent new feature won't be around for awhile. The planned 'white iPhone' won't be available until mid-July.

The same day Google and Verizon announced the Motorola DROID X as an open alternative, coming July 15. The Boy Genius Report got a review copy and relayed extremely positive first impressions. Slightly larger and heavier, the DROID X has a 4.3 inch screen with resolution that, on any other day, would be groundbreaking. PC World did a spec by spec comparison of the two phones.

Mobile phones are only as popular as their apps allow, and the iPhone still holds a huge edge. Mashable reported on sentiment within the developer community -- the immediate need is to develop for the iPhone but long term trends may favor Google's mobile OS.
