Motorola DROID X owners had every right to be upset just before the calendar turned to June. As we reported, owners of the original Motorola DROID were able to download the Nextflix app from the Android Market while those with the higher spec’d DROID X were shut out. Yes, the first-gen Motorola DROID had at one time carried the weight of the entire Android OS on its shoulders, but that was back in the day. It’s underclocked 600MHz TI OMAP 3430 processor was the product of an earlier, simple time when processors were single-core and front-facing cameras were science fiction. The DROID X, while not a fresh faced kid anymore, still offered up a 1GHz processor and a 4.3 inch display which provided plenty of real estate to watch a movie, so why didn’t the DROID X get the Netflix app?
All of the anger that Motorola DROID X owners had can now be released as Netflix has updated its app which now supports…the Motorola DROID X. So now owners of the device can join the users of seven other Android handsets in watching streaming movies and television shows on their smartphone instantly by using the Netflix app. The complete list of Android devices that support the Netflix app include the Casio G’zOne Commando C771 with Android 2.2, HTC DROID Incredible with Android 2.2, HTC Nexus One with Android 2.2, 2.3, HTC G2 with Android 2.2, LG Revolution with Android 2.2, Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3, the Motorola DROID with Android 2.2 and the Motorola DROID X with Android 2.3.
