    Motorola CLIQ update hits this week with touchscreen and GPS updates

    Hurrah for updates! Nothing can give your aging phone a fresh feeling like an update can, and CLIQ users can get excited about that this week. Is this the big update that we mentioned last week? Perhaps not. Read More

  • Megan Fox introduces Motorola DEVOUR and looks face-slappingly good

    Megan Fox introduces Motorola DEVOUR and looks face-slappingly good

    For me, the best part of the Super Bowl is the commercials. And after you see this one, you may have to agree. Just note that you’ll have to play the video several times over before you realize there’s a phone there – the Motorola DEVOUR with MOTOBLUR, to be exact. So, what happens when Megan Fox uses her DEVOUR to send out a hot, wet image via a social network? Read More

  • Analysis: iPhone's touchscreen slightly better than Droid, Nexus One and Droid Eris

    To be honest, I don’t really care which is the better smartphone (or super-duper phone): the iPhone 3GS, the Motorola Droid, HTC’s Droid Eris, Google’s Nexus One, Nokia’s N900 or the Palm Pre. It’s just great to witness this seemingly never-ending advancements in mobile technology, both on a hardware and software level, and to see increased competition drive… Read More

    To be honest, I don’t really care which is the better smartphone (or super-duper phone): the iPhone 3GS, the Motorola Droid, HTC’s Droid Eris, Google’s Nexus One, Nokia’s N900 or the Palm Pre.

  • Moto Rapture VU30 and Samsung Sway U650 get dated for VZW

    Moto Rapture VU30 and Samsung Sway U650 get dated for VZW


    Couple new just-over-budget phones comin’ down the line to Verizon Wireless. I can’t say I’m too excited about that Rapture, but the Sway looks pretty svelte. Cheaper, too. Neither one is very flashy, but it looks like the nicer sliding form factors from Samsung are starting to trickle down a little more. I remember drooling over some of the Korea-only handsets a year ago… Read More

  • FCC outs MOTOROKR S7-HD Jay-Z bluetooth headphones

    FCC outs MOTOROKR S7-HD Jay-Z bluetooth headphones

    Good ‘ol FCC. You are peering at the MOTOROKR S7-HD Jay-Z headphones. Clearly, this ugly set is not after the same market as Sony’s new stylish digs, but at least these have bluetooth work’n for ‘em. Plus, Moto managed to stuff a microphone in the headset somewhere. Too bad they couldn’t stuff some style in ‘em too. No word on price or availability; the… Read More

  • Toshiba Horns In on the Desktop Linux Party

    Toshiba Horns In on the Desktop Linux Party

    Sure, ripples touched the Linuxverse earlier today when reports surfaced on the Internets that Dell would likely be pre-installing Ubuntu Linux on consumer desktops and laptops later this year. The idea of desktop Linux is one shared by most Linux fans, and this is exactly the type of movement it’ll need to take hold. In addition to Dell, Motorola is laying the groundwork for a… Read More

  • RAZR MAXX Ve Set to Drop Tomorrow?

    Verizon tomorrow is set to release the only phone from the RAZR line that we kinda like, the MAXX Ve. The MAXX is similar to other RAZRs in form factor, but adds a hefty 2MP auto-focus camera with true flash and an oversized external LCD. With the built-in EV-DO connectivity, this little clamshell is destined to flickr. It should hit at around $200 with a 2-year contract, and we’d expect… Read More

  • StarTAC III: Back on the Streets

    Remember StarTAC? You might not, it’s been a good decade since the popular Moto hit the scene back in the days of analog phone service, but at the time, it was a big deal. It was the first “clamshell” cellphone to hit the US market, as well as the first to feature a “vibrate” function, and was so small and light that you could actually carry it in your pocket… Read More

    Moto RIZR Z3 Rises to the Occasion at T-Mo


    Having just cleared the FCC gauntlet, the Moto RIZR Z3 is set to launch on T-Mobile on March 12. The new version will feature a 2-megapixel camera, music playback, stereo Bluetooth, quad-band, speakerphone, voice recognition and a 220 x 176 resolution display. It has not yet been announced how much the RIZR Z3 will sell for, but given the proximity to launch, I’m guessing we’ll… Read More

  • Another Day, Another RAZR

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/HSDPA model headed to Cingular. It just cleared the FCC, so it's now only a matter of time. Moto was nice enough to favor this RAZR with a 1.3-megapixel camera, microSD, stereo Bluetooth, and dual cameras for video calls, so you can pretend you're on G.I. Joe while looking even lamer because you bought a… Read More

  • Sprint Gets a SLVR, Calls it MOTOSLVR

    Sprint and Motorola seem to be new friends, as the carrier is now selling Motorola’s popular SLVR under the MOTOSLVR name. The SLVR is Moto’s RAZRed-up candybar phone, with a VGA camera, Bluetooth, and MicroSD. The slim phone also supports Sprint’s TV service, but will anyone watch it on such a small screen? We doubt it. Just yesterday Sprint launched its version of the… Read More

  • Sprint Gets KRZY, Too

    , Sprint today has officially made the Motorola KRZR available to its subscribers. For those two of you not in-the-know, the KRZR is Motorola’s sequel to the pervasive and slender RAZR. You probably have one, or at least know someone with one. They’re getting obnoxious. So why not make them obnoxiousier? Like its Verizon brother, the KRZR (which Sprint is calling the MOTOKRZR)… Read More

  • Motorola Upgrades the SLVR With Magic: Meet the SLVR L7e

    The Motorola RAZR’s sexy candybar cousin, the SLVR, just got a well deserved upgrade. Though it’s not available from any American carriers yet, the latest version of the SLVR, the L7e, is chock-full of state of the art fun. The GPRS radio has been updated to EDGE, the camera is now at 1.3 megapixels instead of VGA, the Bluetooth is now stereo compatible, and the keypad has a… Read More

  • Motorola goes KRZY for Cingular

    inescapable RAZR, the KRZR, is set to drop early next month on Cingular, according to Engadget Mobile’s anonymous tipster. Right now, the KRZR is only available via Verizon in the CDMA flavor, Cingular’s would be the first GSM version in the country. We’re sick and tired of the RAZR and its many varying forms, so anything sleek, stylish, and Moto to replace it, we’re… Read More

  • Moto's Touchscreen, Linux-Based ROKR E6 Clears FCC, Excites Fanboys

    Another day, another slick Moto phone, right?. Sorta. This candy bar Moto is more likely than most to get the fan boys frothing, as it’s totally different, but kinda the same, as the phones Moto has been turning out lately. It’s similar in that it’s called the ROKR E6, which means it will be a music phone (and it will ROCK). Its looks are very RAZR-esque, right down to the… Read More
