Google Wants The Next Version of Android’s UI to Blow Your (And Manufacturers') Minds

Word on the street (and by “the street,” I clearly mean TechCrunch) is that the next version of Android, (Gingerbread, which is rumored to be coming in 4Q2010), will focus on refining the UI. It may seem like a waste of time, as most Android phones today run a custom UI (HTC, Motorola, etc) – but that’s just the point. By stepping up the default UI, handset makers (hopefully) won’t feel the need to layer on their UIs.

Yet Another Droid X Leak, This Time With Sexy High-Res Pictures

This is certainly one of the worst kept mobile secrets in a while. It seems we can barely go more than a few days without more Droid X/Xtreme/Shadow or Droid 2 pictures leaking. In this case, it seems Mr. Blurrcam is on vacation and let his high resolution counterpart take a few more pictures of the Droid X.

There’s not a whole lot of new information at this point, but that’s to be expected considering the rate at which we’ve been seeing leaks.

According to Engadget, this phone is a ‘sister phone’ of the Motorola Motoroi, an Android phone that launched in Korea earlier this year. The specs are similar, though I’ve been reading conflicting reports on what exactly the Milestone XT720 is packing.

The Droid Shadow Loves The Limelight

Another week another leak – we’re visited once again by our old friend the Droid Shadow (AKA: Droid Xtreme/Droid X), this time with two new pictures and few tidbits about the phone’s software.

In case you’re out of the loop, the Droid Shadow is said to be Motorola’s latest addition to Verizon’s Droid brand, which we’ve covered here and here (note that I incorrectly referred to the Shadow as the Droid 2 – from what I’ve read since, this is not the case).

Where You At: Boost Mobile To Get Its First Android Handset

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.

Rumorama: Anyone Lose A Motorola Shadow?

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.

Mystery Verizon Droid Surfaces – Is This The Droid 2?

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.

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.
