Verizon Says Droid X Using Five Times More Data Than Other Phones

According to Verizon business development executive director Jennifer Byrne, the Droid X is "seeing something like five times the data usage of any other device". We guess having that big honking screen encourages people to surf the web, watch high-quality YouTube videos and download apps galore.

The early surge in data usage could be credited to people setting up their phones and exploring new features, so we'll have to wait and see how it balances out in the long run. In any case, as data usage spike with better phones, it's more evidence that people need unlimited data plans (and well, more reason for carriers to squeeze every dollar out of us).
