We found 2038 results for 'Motorola Droid'
Have a craving for a push-to-talk Android handset and hefty price tag? Well, then look no further because it seems that Motorola and pre-paid MVNO Boost Mobile have you covered.
That’s right, if you head over to Best Buy’s site, you can find the product page for the Motorola i1, the first Android iDEN handset to hit the market. I’d imagine you’d have to be pretty crazy for the push-to-talk capabilities that the phone offers though, because you’ll have to pay $349.99 to pick one up once it hits Best Buy’s shelf. Read More
Time for another game of ‘Shop job or Shadow: Gizmodo’s received a picture from someone claiming that they found the upcoming Motorola Shadow on the floor at a Verizon corporate gym.
According to the tipster they had enough time to confirm most of the rumored specs of the phone before it was remotely locked down, though suspiciously, they only had enough time to snap one picture.
Engadget notes that the angle of the picture is uncannily similar to that of the leaked ‘Getting Started’ manual that we’ve covered earlier. Read More
A user over at Howard Forums has leaked what appears to be a ‘Getting Started’ manual for an as of yet unknown Motorola phone. Rumor has it that this is the Motorola Shadow/MB810, a phone that we’ve seen in random leaks here and there for the last few months.
Apparently it’s an ultra-thin slider, which has some speculating that it will be Verizon’s follow up the original Droid. If this is in fact the MB810, then we know a little bit about the expected specs:
- 4.3 inch screen
- HDMI port
- 8 Megapixel camera
- 1080P Video Recording
- 802.11 b/g/n
This info all came via Engadget’s past coverage of the device here and here. Read More
There has been a lot of speculation about the features of Android 2.2, codenamed “Frozen Yogurt” or “Froyo” for short. I have been fortunate enough to have had plenty of time to work with a 2.2 device, using it as my day-to-day smartphone.
Now that Froyo has been announced at Google IO, lifting the embargo on the non-disclosure agreement of what Android 2.2 brings to the general public, we are bringing you some notes on the new features I have been taking for granted for the past few weeks. Read More
May 18th is starting with some great news for book lovers. Amazon has just announced that it would be releasing the official Kindle application for Android, available "soon".
The Kindle app is already available on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, PC, Mac, and BlackBerry, so Android is quite late to the party. Better late than never though - there is no WinMo app anywhere in sight.
The Android application is, surprisingly, not going to be shy on features. Read More

It's finally here - today should be the day when Verizon starts rolling out the Android 2.1 OTA (over-the-air) update that we reported on a few days ago.
The update page on Verizon's site, which provides benefits of the new 2.1 OS as well as the update instructions, still mentions "Coming Soon!" as the release date.
That last part, however, apparently means today, May 11th, according to a MobileCrunch tipster who sent in this internal memo screen:
We know it says "tentatively scheduled" and Verizon doesn't exactly have the best track record with releasing 2.1 when it says it is, but we have a hunch that it will actually begin on time this time around. Read More
Since the launch of the Motorola Droid in the fall of 2009, the market share of the Android OS has been steadily on the rise, and it has only been a question of when, not if it would actually overtake the iPhone in sales.
After all, with dozens of Android handsets now flooding the market, how long can the iPhone possibly stay on top?
The answer to when came today, when NPD, a consumer market research group, reported smartphone sales results for Q1 of 2010. Read More
I guess Sprint was feeling a bit lonely: Verizon has recently revealed on their official support site for the Droid Eris that users can expect an update to 2.1 ‘soon’. Unfortunately, they don’t offer a more specific time table, but they do provide documents both detailing the benefits of upgrading as well as instructions on how to do so, which is definitely reassuring.
Reading through the documents provided, it looks like Verizon is going to deliver the update over-the-air, as well as require the user to wipe the device. Read More
Mozilla’s mobile version of Firefox, codenamed Fennec, is now available to download for Android 2 users.
Vladimir Vukićević, a developer at Mozilla, posted an update on his blog yesterday informing users about the progress that the project is making. Although this is still a pre-alpha build of Fennec, it gives a good idea of how the browser will look and feel as it continues to mature. Firefox fans should definitely try this out, although Vladimir did note a few potential issues in the post
- We've only really tested this on the Motorola Droid and the Nexus One.
