Droid X and Droid 2 for Verizon Wireless to Feature 1GHz Snapdragon Processor

Ready to start the speculation train? We just told you a bit ago that the @DroidLanding Twitter account is, indeed, real, and that it's spouting off rumors from this point on to let people get in on the Droid X action before anyone else. Coincidentally enough, one of the first tweets that account actually posted said that the Droid X has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. Interesting, yes?

Well, everyone assumed that was a mistake. That, for whatever reason, 1GHz and Snapdragon had become so synonymous that it would be easy to make a human mistake like that. But, hold your horses. The fine folks over at Droid-Life have just spoken to one of their sources, and they got some interesting news: Both upcoming DROIDS are going to have Snapdragon processors under the hood. And, in point of fact, Motorola worked closely with the chip manufacturers to make sure that the processors delivered a bunch of "pop," which makes those benchmarks we saw weeks ago make more sense.

However, HTC, and a few other manufacturers out there, have used Snapdragon in their high-end devices. Motorola, for all intents and purposes, has made no moves to move away from the Texas Instruments processors they've showcased previously. But, if they are indeed Snapdragon processors, we're sure that's going to be making a bunch of people happy.

Coincidence, though: The tweet that started the whole thing? Well, it's been pulled from the Twitter account proper. Yeah, that shows us that it was a mistake, and nothing more, but with these "sources" coming forward and saying that the tweet is actually correct, well. We're interested, that's for sure.
