It seems like launch hiccups are going to be part of the bargain with all these new superphone launches. With all that cutting-edge technology packed in there, you can expect a few issues — like faulty USB controllers or wet glue — and in the Droid X’s case, some display problems.
Yes, there are a few reports of that big ol’ display not functioning correctly. It’s far from an epidemic. But if you’re having problems, it always helps to know you’re not the only one.
It could be a corrupted display driver (my guess) or a problem in the LCD controller itself — too early to tell. I’m sure we’ll hear from Motorola or one of their customers before long. If you’re having this issue, chime in.
Update: Verizon and Motorola have acknowledged the issue and recommend that affected users “contact a Motorola customer support center or Verizon Wireless.” In other words, take it back and get a new one.
