    Is the Droid X is constructed out of anodized aluminum or hard plastic? Hard to tell from pictures, and I haven't found any official data on this.

    I'm hoping for a nice aluminum build like the Nokia N8/Moto Devour/Original Droid, but even if it is a hard plastic, at least it's a matte finish which is superior to the "finger print magnet" finish of its rival EVO 4G.

    I heard it was lighter than the droid somewhere so maybe plastic?

    Every review has compared it to the original Droid in that it's made of the same coated metal.

    Also, I currently own an Evo (thinking of switching back to Verizon for various reasons), and it is NOT a fingerprint magnet at all. It has a soft-touch back that's very similar to the rubberized coating on the Droid. I don't know where you're getting your facts from.

    It's slightly lighter but that's because of the lack of a hardware keyboard and the extra equipment for the slider.
