Motorola Defy Can Take Anything You Throw At It (Or Throw It In)

A video has come to our attention the shows just how harshly you can treat the Motola Defy. It can take all the Hulk-smashings that inevitably result from using Motoblur for more than 10 minutes - in addition to being flushed down a toilet when you're done.

The video is about 3 minutes long, but all the action happens in the first 45 seconds.

The phone gets unapologetically dropped from shoulder-height then thrown into a glass of water, followed by a long length of having Motoblur.

Droid 2 R2-D2 Edition Breaks Free Of The Tractor Beam September 30 For $249, Pre-Loaded With Star Wars Themed Goodies. Do You Think It Will Be A Flop? [Poll]

Not many phones come at the on-contract price of $249, save for the Epic 4G, and now, the latest addition to the Droid family - the R2-D2 edition of the Droid 2. At $249 it's not exactly cheap, but then again, that buys you not just the Star Wars-themed phone itself, but also:

  • a box designed to look like carbonite
  • a special Star Wars dock
  • the interactive live wallpapers we caught sight of earlier
  • a bunch of custom sounds, photos, and widgets
  • a "binoculars" app (your guess is as good as mine as to what that's for)
  • an Empire Strikes Back app that will be available from the Android Market for $2.99 for this device and all other Android phones on Verizon running Android 2.1 and above

Of course, the software side of this phone should be ported over to other Android devices soon enough - look no further than the clever hackers developers over at xda-developers for proof of that - but who could say no to an R2-D2-themed phone?

[How-To] Get FM Radio Working On Your Rooted Droid 2

This article deals with rooting. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, hit up our primer here: Rooting Explained + Top 5 Benefits Of Rooting

There was initially some doubt as to whether or not the Motorola Droid 2 actually contained the proper hardware for FM radio. We can safely lay that discussion to rest because, as of today, the developers at XDA have gotten a fully working port of the FM radio app from the Droid X onto the Droid 2.

Original Motorola Milestone Comes To Alltel - 10 Months Too Late, $200 Too Much

Considering the fact that the original Motorola Milestone was launched almost a year ago alongside the original Droid, it may seem a bit ridiculous that the device has just now landed in Alltel's measly lineup of Android phones (the only other option is the HTC Hero). Again, that's the original Milestone, not its recently announced successor, which closely mimics the Droid 2, nor a version that, if nothing else, includes a processor upgrade or at least a camera upgrade of some sort, but the original, unmodified, device.

Motorola Flipout Unofficially Official For AT&T, Now Available Exclusively On eBay

A version of the Motorola Flipout designed just for AT&T? Not possible, they say.

Ah, but what's this? According to a recent auction on eBay hosted by seller hotjdragon, who, mind you, has a satisfaction rating of 99.9%, this square little device is indeed real and is indeed selling for the off contract price of $388.88. Of course, it's always possible that AT&T will jack up this price in order to lock customers into a two-year service agreement, but, at least for now, here is what $388.88 gets you:

  • a "brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item [Motorola Flipout] in its original packaging" along with a GSM radio designed for AT&T, although, of course, it is sold off contract
  • specs like :
    • a 700MHz OMAP3410 processor
    • a 2.8-inch QVGA (320x240) display, similar to that of the Charm
    • a 3MP camera
    • 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM
    • WiFi 802.11 b/g
    • Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
    • a 1170 mAh battery
    • a 2MB MicroSD card out of the box that can be swapped up to any other capacity microSD up to 32GB
    • a swiveling form factor
    • assisted GPS and eCompass for location services
    • a 3.5mm headset jack
  • MotoBlur on top of Android 2.1 Eclair
  • packaging that looks something like this:

Apple, Motorola, And HTC Land Top Spots In JD Power Smartphone Satisfaction

A bit off topic as there's nothing directly Android-related here, but interesting nonetheless: JD Power & Associates has released their findings for the Q2 2010 Wireless Smartphone Satisfaction Study, and Apple, Motorola, and HTC have grabbed the top spots (respectively), all landing above the industry average of 764 points (out of 1000).

Coming in below average? RIM (Blackberry), Samsung, Palm, and in last place, Nokia (note:  not all companies are shown, just the big dogs).

Editorial: Let Android Be Android

Introduction

I've had this article in mind for quite some time now, but haven't mustered up the courage to do it in fear of upsetting fanboys. But when the Fascinate shipped with Bing rather than Google as the default search engine, I could hold off no longer. For a Google Android phone to ship with a search engine other than Google, the search engine I know, love, and use on a daily basis (and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone here) is unthinkable; not offering a way to change it is even more of an outrage.

Droid 2 World Edition To Make Droid 2 Obsolete? Already?

The world of smartphones moves fast. How fast, you ask? So fast that a device that is just days over being a month old is already apparently getting phased out. The Motorola Droid 2 was just released in August but it's possible that this Droid lived fast and will die young.

You'll notice that underneath the words "Droid 2 by Motorola" it states "while supplies last," indicating that there are a finite number left.
