  • Motorola Z6c trots the globe

    I’ve gotta commend Verizon for their efforts to make global roaming a little easier for CDMA users. The Motorola Z6c slider is touting itself as a multimedia device with stereo Bluetooth, 2-megapixel camera, OTA music downloads, V CAST video, microSD with support up to 4GB and a 2-inch QVGA display. Meh. It’s available now on-line and in stores on the 12th for $179.99 after a… Read More

  • So long Motorola CEO Ed Zander, we hardly knew ye

    The time has come to say goodbye to Ed Zander, a dear friend of the CrunchGear family. And by "dear friend" I mean a guy we mentioned six times, were you to search for "Zander" on our site. We’ve had a great ride, huh? Thanks for the memories, Ed. We’ll never forget the RAZR, RAZR2, ROZR, RUZR, RIZR, and all the other great phones whose models names contained… Read More

  • Why the Sidekick Slide is dying

    I’ve had one issue with my Slide shutting down and now we know what the problem is with the random power cycling. I’m glad Motorola has found the problem and is working to resolve it, but I think my days with the Sidekick are coming to an end. UPDATED T-Mobile USA Statement on Sidekick Slide Motorola has determined that the intermittent power cycling on some T-Mobile Sidekick… Read More

  • Three new Sprint phones available November 23rd

    Take a dump in a bucket and call me Chad Pennington. With all the hoopla surrounding Black Friday, I lost sight of the fact that it’s a day from tomorrow. I’ll be in Florida stuffing stuffing into my ponch by this time next week. How do you like that? Anyway, next Friday there will be three new Sprint phones. First there’s the Motorola Q9C, which only looks marginally… Read More

  • "Mad Probz" plague Moto Sidekick Slide, yo


    Mad probz and other shizz are surfacing with this piece of hardware, my nizzle It has come to Boy Genius’ attention — and, in fact, Mr. Peter Ha’s as well — that the Sidekick Slide by Motorola is causing mad probz and is shutting down at inopportune times including during calls to your shortie and while messaging your peeps. While the Sidekick Slide might be mad hot… Read More

  • gPhone Madness: The creepiest entry to date


    The gPhone madness contest is still going strong. Remember to vote early and often for your favorite entrants and that we also count comments in the judging. Rich sends us his entry, a really freaking creepy idea involving social data mining and facial recognition. The Playa’s Bible web service is linked to Open Social for data mining, The guy takes a picture of a young lady in a local… Read More

  • Gphone madness: contest entries keep rolling in

    Here’s the deal: in order to celebrate the non-release of the gPhone, we’re asking you, our dear readers, to offer up some potential applications for the Android platform. They can be silly, smart, or stupid. Take this one, for example: Here’s an idea for an open source Gphone application that could make you a little cash: Turn your cell phone into a traffic camera. As you… Read More

  • Sidekick Slide review [Update]

    Many of you may recall my recent rants about the Sidekick 3 and how much it sucked ass. I mean, seriously, I paid over $400 for the biggest POS known to man. Danger makes a phenomenal OS and Sharp and T-Mo go and screw it all up. The hardware was atrocious and that’s putting it lightly. The phone was horrible. Everyone complained of echoing and I could never hear what they were saying. Read More

    I’ll just quote this verbatim and I’ll be live blogging the call in a mere 30 minutes. I may have to eat my hat. GOOGLE, T-MOBILE, HTC, QUALCOMM AND MOTOROLA TO DISCUSS NEW OPEN PLATFORM FOR MOBILE DEVICES Read More

  • Bluetooth visor gizmo does calls, outputs to car stereo

    This is an interesting device and, as fate may have it, a device I’ve been waiting on for quite some time now. It’s basically a Bluetooth speakerphone that clips to your visor and outputs sound to your car’s stereo. You can use it for calls but, even better, you can use it for audio. So if your phone or MP3 player does Bluetooth, you can stream your tunes directly to your… Read More

  • Hands on with the Motorola RAZR 2 Luxury Edition

    I won’t lie. This phone is hot. I want it. I must have it. The babes will flock rather than run like they normally do. Yes, I know I cracked jokes about the Luxury Edition earlier, but it’s such a sexy piece of hardware. The faux snake skin isn’t half bad and the diamond-cut plating is well done. I really, really want it and it sort of makes me sick to my stomach. Read More

  • Hands on with the Sidekick Slide

    I’ve really got to lay off the crack before taking photos. Here she is, the latest Sidekick (IMO the best) from Motorola and I can’t wait to get my hands on it later. Read More

  • Re: Giant genitals on Motorola phones

    Remember that nice, big dick on the clock on the screen of those Motorola phones? It’s now Moto’s Loch Ness Monster: despite evidence, it doesn’t exist. BGR, who brought us the story, got a quote from Moto saying it was just unfortunate shading, and if someone’s offended, they can just disable the analog-style clock. It’s a bit of a mia culpa for sure, there was… Read More

  • XXX Image on Motorola Phones?

    We’re not jumping to conclusions here, but it sure as hell looks like there’s a great big dick on the analog phone on newer Motos. It might have been snuck in by some trickster in the UI department, or it might just be a random coincidence. We’ll let you view the clock yourself and be the judge. The best part? The positioning of the word “Tools”. Ha! Motorola… Read More

  • Motorola's fake batch of phones

    Remember these leaked phones from Motorola? Yeah, they’re all fake. Figures, considering they’re all equally as blurry. The only one of the phones that’s real, rather, some what real is the mashup with Kodak, but when I contacted Kodak they said they’d get back to me. Looks like Moto was just trying to hype up their new line of phones for next year, whatever they… Read More

  • RAZR2 gets a touch of class or trash?

    Not a whole lot that’s new here on the RAZR2 V8, but it does come ensconced in a fancy new outfit like the original RAZR did with Dolce and Gabbana. The Luxury edition comes with 18k and 24k gold plated accents on a shiny, metallic black casing with pin stripes on the CLI lens. The sidebands include an engraved diamond-cut pattern and linear etchings on the nav wheel. The back is supple… Read More

  • Motorola officially announces the PEBL 2 U9

    In case you were wondering, Motorola has officially unveiled the PEBL-like U9 clamshell with CrystalTalk technology (noise reduction), stereo Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera with 8x zoom, microSD with 25MB of internal storage, external touch sensitive music controls and animated screensavers on the external display that float. The quadband GSM/EDGE phone is music-centric, which is the… Read More

  • Motorola's latest devices revealed in all their blurred glory

    I wouldn’t exactly say that Motorola ‘leaked’ these four new devices during a presentation in Amsterdam because…well…how the hell do you accidentally leak four devices? It’s not like they fell out of your bag and every douchemonger there snapped pics of it. If it’s in your presentation then they weren’t leaked. Some people are just morons. *Looks… Read More
