Earlier, we told you about the possibility that Verizon Wireless could soon impose data caps on its users. Now, some news about the recently launched Droid X smartphone from Motorola could help explain why these caps could be coming. You see, Jennifer Byrne, a business development executive director at Verizon Wireless, recently revealed early data usage from Droid X owners shows they use five times the amount of data than other smartphone owners.
More specifically, Byrne said, "On Droid X, we’re seeing something like 5x the data usage of any other device." Clearly, users are taking advantage of the large, 4.3-inch screen and using it to its fullest capacity to view YouTube videos, surf the Web, and download cool new apps.
It's unclear if Byrne was referring to total data including data from the optional tethering feature of the Droid X or if the carrier is solely evaluating data based on smartphone traffic alone.
