  • Motorola Zante aka Sidekick Slide In The Wild

    There you have it, folks. The Motorola Zante/Sidekick Slide in the wild. Does it make you randy, baby? I think I’m officially done with you, Sidekick. Hello Zante. Hello Sidekick Slide [BGR] Read More

  • NES Controller Turned SLVR Case


    Yeah. Chicks are gonna love it. Old school NES controllers can take a beating. I remember playing the living hell out of Contra and Super C trying to beat them for hours on end, only to find myself throwing an NES controller as hard as I could on the floor. Seems this gentleman with the goofy burger hat had the same revelation and decided to turn the obsolete controller into a sturdy… Read More

  • WildCharger Charges Wirelessly

    WildCharge has finally gotten its act together and the first wireless charging station, the RAZR, will be released this month. It’s a fairly strange design, but I guess the ‘wireless’ charging aspect is cool? It actually sounds like a complicated progress and I’m not so sure it’s worth the $89.99 you’d be shelling out. If you’re feeling adventurous… Read More

  • Motorola RIZR Z9 Leaked

    Check out this fancy new slider from Motorola. The handset sports styling reminiscent of the Razr 2, 3G data, 2MP camera, and expandability in the form of a microSD card. Although the phone already looks very stylish it is a prototype model so expect revisions in the future. All AT&T branding, so maybe this thing will take over for the iPhone hype in the next few months. Or maybe… Read More

  • Motorola Zante aka Sidekick Slide aka Sucks

    Gizmodo has the scoop on the latest Sidekick, but there are a few glaring indicators that this could all be a sham. Let’s see if you can spot them. If this is all true and accurate then I hate to say it, but the latest Sidekick does absolutely nothing for me and I’m sure it won’t do much for you either. Sure, the outside is all shiny and sleek looking with a black and… Read More

  • myCharger Powers Your iPhone, iPod and Other Mobile Phones

    Traveling tech geeks will understand the anguish I go through when I travel with all my gadgets. It’s bad enough that I travel around with three phones, a laptop, an iPod and digital camera, but add the chargers for all that and it ends up being a complete clusterf*ck and the few extra pounds make a big difference. The Tekkeon myCharger might not reduce the weight and clutter altogether… Read More

  • Good Mobile Messaging 5: Business Users' Best Friend (As Far As E-mail Goes)

    Motorola purchased the Good Technology Group last January and now has Good Mobile Messaging 5 to show for it. It’s a software package for smartphones that attempts to mobilize Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes. Professionals, so I’m told, actually use e-mail for work and not just sending funny links to your entire address book, so having it all nice and organized is key. Time is… Read More

  • Sidekick Zante, LX and LE Release Date Revealed

    The crew at Hiptop3 has the scoop on a leaked document that reveals the release dates for the Zante aka Slide aka Motorola Q700 as well as the LE and LX editions. We’re still unsure what the LX and LE models are, but the focus is on the RAZResque device, which is slated for a Q3 launch. Upon closer inspection of the document I’d go out on a limb and say that it’s fake. Read More

  • Motorola Q9M For Verizon Wireless: Hands On

    Boy Genius Report has some of the very first pictures of the new Q. The Q9M brings back the popular scroll wheel and has miniSD for expansion. It is slightly thicker than its GSM counterpart, but features the same great keyboard and slightly rubberized body. Not much has changed other than some slightly altered plastic around the edge and cool new Home screen. Its Curve-like looks, make it… Read More

  • PatentMonkey: Cell Phone Features Seen 'em Once, and Again

    Sorting through this week’s cell phone makers’ issued patents, I found a couple examples of patented concepts (dating back to 2000-2001) that have found their way into the market more than once by means of “fast following”. In this post-KSR patent world, fast following on cool features will likely become even more important for manufacturers. Seen the above from a… Read More

  • Danger/Motorola Zante aka Slide aka Sidekick 3.5 Details Emerge

    A few more details on the latest Danger device have trickled through and hit the Giz. Remember the Sidekick RAZR X PowerPoint slides that made the rounds a while back? This could possibly be the device I’ve been waiting for, but I thought that about the Sidekick 3, too. Sidekick 4 this is not, but, rather, another ‘interim’ device (iD ring a bell) until the Real Deal Holyfield… Read More

  • Moto SCPL: Thinner Than the Hollandaise Sauce at a Vegan Potluck

    We’ve heard of the SCLP from Motorola before. Word on the Web was that it was to be the thinnest and lightest Moto yet, while still offering next-gen features. That, though, is all we knew about it. Until today, when Boy Genius posted some seriously hawt spy pics of a prototype. It’s thin. Think Kate Moss Coke Binge thin. The SCPL is to the SLVR what the KRZR is to the RAZR: a… Read More

  • Motorola and Kodak Working On 5-Megapixel Cameraphone

    Kodak and Motorola are currently at work on a 5-megapixel cameraphone using a Kodak-developed CMOS sensor. This was confirmed yesterday when Kodak President Antonio Perez jumped up on a conference table and shouted “Five megapixels in your face and up your butt, baby!” Of course this is just speculation. Other than the 5-megapixel CMOS sensor, Perez didn’t mention much… Read More

  • Motorola RAZR2 Spec'd Out


    The RAZR2 V8 is geared toward entertainment and it sports the necessary accoutrements to get the job done. The second generation RAZR keeps the slim and sleek form factor of its predecessor with a stainless steel frame, metal and glass housing that’s 2mm smaller on the GSM and CDMA versions. The 2-inch QVGA external display is nice and bright with contextual touch interaction with… Read More

  • Helio Ocean Quick Look

    I’m not feeling very well today but I wanted to slap together this video of the Ocean as compared to other smartphones I had around the house. Take a gander. Read More

  • Motorola To Unveil 30 FPS Phone, Shooter

    Big Daddy over at Motorola Ed Zander said that next week, his company will show off a new phone capable of playing movies at 30 frames per second in very high quality video. Then every American sighed in disappointment as he revealed that the phone would be launching in Europe. Oh well. It’s nice to dream. Zander said that users will be able to load movies onto the phone via SD cards… Read More
