The Motorola Droid X has been officially out less than a week and already they are seeing a significant increase in data usage. According toÂ Jennifer Byrne,Â Verizon’s business development executive director, â€œOn Droid X, weâ€™re seeing something like 5x the data usage of any other device.â€ If you do not use the MyVerizon app, you should start using it to keep track on your usage. Byrne spoke on a panel of other leading execs from BBC, NBA Digital and Zagat, the conversation was on the subject of the increasing data usage on mobile devices. Byrne then stated,
â€œWhile we may have had the first app store, GetItNow, weâ€™ve learned a lot, with the watershed being the iPhone. Itâ€™s a drastic change from the walled garden stage to the open approach. Itâ€™s been a very big shift.â€ Verizon has â€œembracedâ€ it, Byrne said. â€œWeâ€™ve seen a tremendous response – so its validated the decision.â€
