  • Lenovo’s gutting of Motorola is nearly complete

    Lenovo’s gutting of Motorola is nearly complete

    My first cell phone was a Sanyo. But only because I couldn’t afford a Motorola. I wanted a StarTAC. All the cool kids had a StarTAC. My Sanyo said loud and clear I was not a cool kid. Sometime later, I spent around $650 to be one of the first people to get the RAZR. People didn’t stand in line back then, but I purchased it at the store the first day it was available. I was finally… Read More

  • Motorola Droid X Gets Android 2.3 Gingerbread OTA Update

    Earlier this week, Android 2.3 Gingerbread became available to Droid X owners online, as a tethered manual install. For some, manual updates are a walk in the park, and for others, a complete nightmare. Anyone’s whose impatience led to a bricked phone knows exactly what I’m talking about. Luckily, Motorola‘s Droid X will be receiving an OTA (over-the-air) update to get… Read More

  • The Droid X Gingerbread Update Brings A Little But Welcome Fix To The Dock Clock Mode

    Huzzah! I loaded the leaked Gingerbread release on my Droid X last night and have fantastic news to report. The stupid colon doesn’t blink when the phone is docked now. Gingerbread as a whole is a tasty update, but this single change makes me a happy little boy. Before the colon would blink as quick as a strobe light. It was major distraction as the dock rests right between my two… Read More

  • Droid X To Get Android 2.3 This Sunday?

    Attention, Droid X owners and lovers. Word is that your handset of choice is getting some tasty Gingerbread as soon as next week. Business phones will get the update first starting on Sunday, but a general roll-out seems imminent. Droid Life states via a friend in the business that 2.3 is done and it’s just up to Verizon/Moto to roll it out. The new version will bring 2.3 and a… Read More

  • Droid X 2 Specs And Photos Leak

    The Droid X 2 might be nearing its official announcement. The successor to Moto’s first supersize phone is at least alive and well according to a forum post at The MobiZone where a bunch of pics and specs were posted. The post has since been pulled, but thanks to the wonders of the cache, the info survived for your enjoyment. Read More

    Droid X Ad: Hold The Phone Any Way You Like

    The iPhone 4 hasn’t even been out a week yet. But that apparently isn’t stopping rivals from pivoting ad campaigns to play to its weaknesses as quickly as possible. Today, Motorola ran a full page ad in the New York TImes to show off its new Droid X device which is launching this Summer on Verizon’s network. Check out the full ad below touting its features, but be sure to… Read More

  • The Droid X's manual storms the interwebs

    If you’re still on the fence whether to opt for Verizon’s Droid X or instead go 4G with the EVO on Sprint, you may want to spend a few minutes perusing the Droid X’s leaked manual. It shows in detail the tweaked UI, on-screen keyboard with Swype, and even gives tips to extending the battery’s life. There doesn’t seem to be anything that surprising within, though… Read More

  • Verizon posts DroidX teaser, complete with all sorts of hidden details

    Oh, you thought Verizon was done dumping mad money into advertising their Droid line after the launch of the first one? Yeah, nope. They’ve just posted a crazy flashy teaser video for the Droid X — a handset that isn’t even officially announced yet — complete with hidden easter eggs for the detail obsessed. Join us after the break for the frame-by-frame. Read More

  • Verizon makes the Droid X official a few days earlier than expected

    The Android arena is a tough one to play in, man. One manufacturer might have the baddest handset on the block one week, only to have the competition release a superior monster-of-a-phone a week later. The rate at which these things are being cranked out doesn’t give the carriers — or their customer — any time to figure heads from tails. If we had to guess, we’d say… Read More

  • Rumor: Droid X launching on July 19th?

    With the Droid, Droid Eris, and Droid Incredible all launching within the last year, is Verizon really ready for yet another addition to the Droid line? (Our say: Who cares? Keep’em coming!) Ready or not, here comes the Droid X.. Read More

  • Droid Xtreme (or X, or Shadow, or whatever it's called) caught on camera yet again.

    Man – is Motorola just giving out new, unannounced handsets to everyone they see carrying a camera? Between the Droid Xtreme, and the Droid 2, the number of leaks is starting to get silly. With that said, keep’em coming! Today’s latest batch of leaked goods comes in the form of gloriously sharp shots of the Droid 2’s keyboard-less brother, the Droid Xtreme. Read More

  • Droid Xtreme struts its solid, metallic stuff

    Ever since childhood, I’ve always thought that adding metal to something automatically made it that much cooler. Slap some tin foil on a few paper towel rolls for example, and you’ve got yourself a nifty homemade Star Wars blaster. Ditto for enhancing your punching power with a roll of quarters when facing a bully on the playground. Someone in Motorola’s design division must… Read More
