Was That the Droid X2 at the FCC?

A mysterious Motorola device passed through FCC testing recently, and speculation is that it may be the follow up to Verizon’s Droid X, the Droid X2, which we’d recently heard will sport a a Tegra 2 processor under the hood.

According to Electronista, the device is identified by the FCC as the IHDT56MJ1, following Motorola’s naming scheme, and supports CDMA and EVDO, but is not believed to be the Bionic. Additionally, a request by Motorola to keep details of the device confidential for 180 days would likely put its launch in August, a year after the original Droid X.

Along with the Bionic, this would be two dual core Blur-skinned devices launching on Verizon later this year. It will be interesting to see how the two devices differ, and how they’re marketing is differentiated.
