According to Verizon Wireless, the carrier's newly launched Motorola Droid X Android flagship smartphone is making it easier for users to consume data, so easy that users of the Droid X are using 5 times more data on that device than any other device on the carrier's lineup. That is unsurprising as the large 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display will make it easier for users to enjoy web videos such as YouTube, as well as browse, surf, and download. Additionally, with features such as the Print to Retail where users can upload their photos to their nearest pharmacy to have physical prints made, data traffic won't be curbed.
It is unclear whether Verizon is examining total data including data from the additional, but optional, tethering feature of the Droid X or if they are just evaluating data use based on smartphone traffic.
Interestingly enough, with the carrier acknowledging increased data use and traffic, there is also speculation that Verizon Wireless will follow AT&T's move and implement tiered data plans, marking an end to unlimited data.
