DROID 3 Specs Confirmed: 4″ qHD Display, Dual-Core 1 GHz CPU In Route.

  • June 30, 2011 8:38 pm

The often leaked Motorola DROID 3 is a bit more official tonight as the device’s full spec sheet has been revealed. As was previously rumored, a 4″ qHD (540 x 960) display, dual-core TI OMAP 4430 1GHz processor, 8-megapixel camera w/ LED flash and 16 GB of internal storage top the list of must haves. Compared to the DROID X2 and DROID 2 in the same sheet puts things in perspective — if it’s a keyboard packing VZW Android device you seek, there’s really only one answer.

Review: Motorola DROID X2

The recipe: dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 4.3″ 540 x 960 display, 512 MB of RAM, and up to 38 GB of total storage (6 GB internal + 32 GB external). Sounds like a winning formula does it not? If only things were so simple.

We’ve got a DROID X2 in house and we’re pretty sure you’d like to know about it. Jump inside for the full rundown…

Motorola Confirms Gingerbread Update Coming For DROID X, Pro, 2, And Global.

  • May 23, 2011 9:04 pm

Android updates while expected and most times guaranteed are all too often relegated to a state of “hope” and crossed fingers. Carriers and manufacturers get sidetracked and distracted by the next latest and greatest leaving consumers to fend for themselves in the form of rooting and custom ROMs. But for owners of popular DROID X, DROID Pro, DROID 2, and DROID Global handsets, Motorola will do you right.

A Motorola Support Forum employee gingerly (pun intended…perhaps) confirmed the aforementioned handsets were scheduled to receive Google’s latest and greatest Android 2.3.4 phone OS. Absent from his claims unfortunately were any specifics regarding release dates for said updates. Based on current rumors floating around, however, we’re looking at a June time frame for the DROID X with the DROID Pro and DROID 2 following sometime in Q3.

While we’re still left in the dark as to when updates will be coming, merely knowing offers some peace of mind.

Bad Deal: Motorola Purchases DRM Company SunUp.

  • May 11, 2011 8:11 am

In many respects, consumers’ fight against one of the most flawed areas of modern technology — DRM — has been “won”. Fewer companies are relying on this digital cancer to push sales and are instead turning to offering truly unique and intriguing products and business models. Unfortunately, Motorola appears to be backpedalling with their recent purchase of DRM company SunUp.

Motorola and SunUp claim that in order to continue offering advanced video (and music) streaming as well as future technology, DRM will be needed to keep rights holders happy. While DRM has proven to be completely ineffective time and time…and time again, we keep seeing these tech companies fail at grasping basic logic and/or fully understanding the market they cater to. With that said, expect Motorola’s new DRM technologies to be cracked within 1-2 months of release — just like every other piece of DRM known to mankind.

-1 Motorola.

Atrix 4G Dock Will Drop To $299 On May 1st.

  • April 29, 2011 2:10 pm

So the $400 price tag on the Atrix 4G’s laptop dock wasn’t quite doin’ it for ya? No problem. It doesn’t really matter if slow sales or age are to blame. All that matters is you can save a cool hundred bucks when picking up that nifty dock for your Atrix. Of couse, you’ll have to wait a couple more days until the first of May. But if you ask us, that’s totally worth $100. For those not keeping count, the new price drop will mean an Atrix + Laptop dock bundle will drop to $399 overall. Not bad, eh?

Motorola Only Shipped 250,000 XOOM Tablets Since Launch.

  • April 28, 2011 7:05 pm

The XOOM hasn’t been quite the saving grace Motorola thought it would be — at least not in one quarter. Motorola announced (PDF) XOOM sales figures today with an amount that may stun you…250,000. In reality, that’s not really all that bad. However, due to a massive advertising budget for the “DROID Does” mantra took it’s toll in the form of an $81 million net loss. Of course, considering we were looking at a $212 million loss but one short year ago twists today’s news in a much fairer light.

Nevertheless, we still really like the XOOM. If only Motorola were quicker with updates and a bit less adventurous with the price.

Motorola And Verizon Teaming Up To Release XOOM Folio Case.

  • April 27, 2011 7:25 pm

On the fence about purchasing a Motorola XOOM but just can’t take the plunge due to the lack of a worthy folio-type case? Lucky for you, Verizon has something up their sleeve as the leaked marketing material above shows. The folio case will feature a leather design with a built-in keyboard (we’re assuming Bluetooth).

For now you’ll have to fill your dreams with what the pricing and date could be, because at this point we honestly haven’t the slightest clue. Hopefully VZW and/or Moto will through us a helpful bone in the near future.

More Droid X 2 Porn.

The Droid X 2 has had its nudes leaked around the web countless times already, but that isn’t stopping us from spreading even more. There’s nothing new or particularly exciting with these images. But hey, we know you like to oogle. Spreads after the jump…

Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) Leaked For Droid 2 And Droid X!

  • March 28, 2011 7:52 am

If Motorola’s approach to Android 2.3 for two flagship devices — the Droid 2 and Droid X — is too slow, taking matters into your own hands is the only real solution. MyDroidWorld has managed to get their hands on * unofficial* Android 2.3 builds for said phones. All you have to is use a Market app called “TBH”, backup your files, and install the as usual and you’re good to go. Afterwards, you’re treated with a much sleeker (and easier on the eyes) Gingerbread-ified MOTOBLUR. And we must say, MOTOBLUR actually looks pretty decent in its new form. If you’re feeling daring: Droid 2 owners can point their browsers here while Droid X users can head on over here..
