  • Droid X to launch with Android 2.2?

    Take it with the finest grain of salt for now (which, given that the Droid X is going to be announced in about an hour, shouldn’t be a big deal), but we just got a bit of a last minute tip regarding Verizon’s newest addition to the Droid line.

  • Live from Verizon's "Next Generation of DROID" Event

    Whether we’re talking about the EVO-challenging Droid X or the QWERTY-sliding Droid 2, Verizon’s had one hell of a time keeping the latest additions to their Droid lineup under wraps lately.

  • Video: a fresh look at Windows Phone 7

    Microsoft held a little gathering in New York City last night, where they showed off the progress being made in Windows Phone 7.

    Ah, iFixit, if there’s anyone more adept at being the first to dissect the latest toys, I’ve not met them.
