No component shortages expected for Verizon's Droid X

Tomorrow is the day that Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) will debut its highly anticipated Droid X smartphone from Motorola (NYSE:MOT).  But don't expect the Droid X to suffer the same problems as Verizon's HTC Droid Incredible or Sprint Nextel's (NYSE:S) HTC Evo 4G, which have been hampered by shortages due to component supply issues.

According to BGR sources, many Verizon stores have 50 to 100 Droid X handsets available for sale, with more at regional warehouses.

Verizon Wireless unveiled the Droid X Android smartphone at a press event in New York City last month. The Droid X will be available tomorrow for $199.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. Verizon said that any subscriber who is eligible for a phone upgrade this year will be able to score the Droid X at launch.
