    The Droid is the current "must have" Android gadget. It's sleek, powerful, and pretty darn good all around. US users however are limited to one carrier at the moment -- Verizon. Much like some people won't switch to AT&T; for the iPhone, there are many who feel the same about Big Red. Hey, whatever floats your boat folks. The tale across the big blue pond is slightly different however as GSM is much more prevalent than the ugly step child (aka CDMA). Yesterday the Motorola Milestone (Europe...

    Typically the iPhone is the talk of the town when sales numbers and "sell outs" are concerned as such things often include large sales volumes and quick sell outs when considering how many phones they actually push out. But they're not the only cool kid in town anymore. For the last month, our European friends have had to sit back and watch us poke and prod our lovely Moto Droid's in jealousy, longing for the day that such happiness can fall upon them. That day came in the form of December 10...

    While newspapers and large organizations would like you to believe they still are the best place for breaking, exclusive news, anyone remotely familiar with the way in which the digital world works knows that many of the "breaking" stories start in short 160 character messages and can be found on Twitter. Sourcing Twitter for major news articles by big media outlets is still somewhat a rarity though is increasing in usage. In contrast, the ultra fast and ever changing tech scene whom stays up ...
  • Droid gets the root treatment!

    It's been a busy two days with the site and all. So much to my surprise when I was taking a relaxing stroll through a couple Droid forums did I find the answer to my dreams (as of November 6th) -- the Droid has finally been rooted. You know what this means folks: multi-touch is this close. No to mention, plenty of tweaking, endless hours exploring new ROM's (when they become available) and overall getting a sense of newness will be returning to your device. Who doesn't love a gadget reborn? ...
  • DROID and HTC Droid Eris to receive Android 2.1 update January 11th or January 22nd?
    by Mike
    Posted December 7th, 2009 at 9:46 am
    Get your salt shakers folks. You'll need them yet again as this is for now a "what if" type of question. It's highly suspected that the Android 2.0.1 update will drop on December 11th just a few days from now. Verizon themselves mentioned that the Droid would receive such an update "before the holidays". Now, also put into your internal RAM that Verizon has stated that the HTC Droid Eris will receive an upgrade to at least Android 2.0 in Q1 of 2010. Finally, back on November 9th we had a st...

    I've you've been in the Android game you know that even with the Droid's new higher spec'd, chiseled body, the HTC Hero still holds a firm grasp on many a geek's hearts. When it was released earlier this year, it was by far the nicest and best performing Android device. But as is customary in the mobile phone world, being on top doesn't last but a moment. That's why we have a bajillion different electronics trade shows to lust after day after day, looking for the next updated hardware or soft...
  • HTC Droid Eris joing 2.0 camp come Q1 of 2010

    Not too long ago , -- say a month -- I was trying to decide to I want slightly outdated Android 1.5 and an HTC device or new hotness with 2.0 and the Droid. I chose the Droid. Many others however went the more economical and picked up the cheaper Eris. and boy did they save. Initially only $99 to start with, having HTC's popular Sense UI and the firm understanding that Android 2.0 would eventually come to were reason enough. Your bet paid off. Verizon has made it known that by the end of Q1...

    [Update: It's fake folks. Pick your heart up from the bottom of the well named sorrow...] Well, it was fun being the king while it lasted. A few ever stealthy, ever persistent BGR ninjas sent in a couple shots of an unnamed Android device with Motorola branding. Is it any good? See ya later Droid -- this Mystery Moto device is said to have an 800MHz processor, 3.8" display, and 8 megapixel camera. I'm sure it won't be too long until we hear the rest of the specs. Anyone hoping this be...

    If you were holding of on getting an Android device to see what was coming up late this year or just to save a few pennies, it looks like this weekend through monday (December 4-7th) will be your best chance yet. We can pretty much guarantee that the Passion is coming to Verizon late this year rockin' a Snapdragon processor and....need I say more? Snapdragon dreams aside, the Droid and Eris aren't bad phones by any means, each with plenty of life left in them. So what about this BOGO? It per...
  • How’s that Moto CLIQ update doing for ya…?
    by Mike
    Posted December 2nd, 2009 at 2:14 pm
    Motorola CLIQ users have now had a good 12 hours to wring their freshly updated CLIQ's to the ends of their ropes. I have to say that it's an extremely good thing that Motorola pushed out the update they did -- fixing numerous bugs and tweaking app/memory/processor management as to get a grip on that abysmal battery life. But I'm sure like me, many of you are disappointed that you're still stuck with Android 1.5 and weren't upgraded to 1.6 at least. No excuses. Android really needs to watch ...
  • HTC Touch.B brings Touch Pro-esque goodness back to market with Android on board.
    by Mike
    Posted December 1st, 2009 at 5:42 pm
    The HTC Touch Pro 2 is a pretty sweet WinMo device. To some, WinMo is a short coming, a flaw, a gimp leg that prevents the Touch Pro 2 from being the true mobile powerhouse it could be. For that I present to you the HTC Touch.B/Rome. The big reason to care about this particular phone isn't necessarily for the hardware but instead for the software that resides within -- Android. Details are nil for the moment. But rest assured that as the sun makes its way towards the eastern sky tomorrow morni...
