We found 2149 results for 'Motorola Droid'
Looks like those of you on the regional carrier Cellular South can finally join the Droid fray... with a phone that’s a year old. On the plus side, it was (is?) an incredibly popular phone, and for good reason. On the downside, the device is now fairly outdated and overpriced. A reminder of the specs:
- TI OMAP 3430 CPU @ 550 MHz
- Android 2.1
- 512 MB ROM, 16 GB microSD Card
- 256 MB RAM
- 854 x 480 3.7” screen
- 5 MP Camera
All in all, certainly not a poorly equipped phone in general, but compared to high-end Android phones that have come out recently, it’s a bit lacking. Read More
ModMyMobile forum member dext3r has released a Milestone update image containing Android 2.2 FRF91, known as MotoFrenzy. Because of the Milestone’s still-locked status, it has been notoriously difficult to port updated versions of Android to. This should help to assuage fears that the Milestone was forever doomed to run Android 2.1.
- MotoFrenzy v0.1a (Full image, needs to be flashed with OpenRecovery (ADB Recovery)
- MotoFrenzy v0.1b (Incremental, link goes to post, download is at bottom of first post; you must register to download)
The only major issue with this image is a non-functional camera, which shouldn’t be too much for Milestone users to give up for a little FroYo. Read More
If you’re the kind of person who isn’t exactly careful with their phone, or needs it to be usable in extreme conditions, you’re in luck. Sprint has just announced it will begin shipping the Motorola i1, the first push-to-talk Android phone, from their online store and telesales starting July 25, and from all other channels on August 8.
The phone meets military specifications for dust, shock, vibration, and rain, so it will certainly be able to handle anything you can throw at it (or anything you throw it against.) Nothing has changed since its launch on Boost Mobile last month, but here’s a refresher on its specs, now that the device is hitting one of the four major carriers:
- 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
- Swype, Opera Mini 5, and Touiteur pre-installed
- Android 1.5 with MOTOBLUR
- 600 MHz processor
- 3.1” screen
- Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth
Clearly, the fact that it is running Android 1.5 is a huge downside, but that shouldn’t matter to the market the phone is aimed at. Read More
There’s been a lot of discussion lately about the bootloader of the Droid X, and more specifically, whether the ‘eFuse’ will render your phone inoperable if you choose to replace the boot loader.
If you’re not up to speed with the story, it all started with this post a few days ago on MyDroidWorld, which claims that the Droid X boot loader is fitted with eFuse technology, which can physically brick the phone if you try to alter the boot loader in any way. Read More
Similar to devices being offered up by competing carriers – Sprint’s Intercept, AT&T’s Backflip and Aria, T-Mobile’s entire line-up – Verizon plans to introduce a cheaper, low-end alternative to pricier Android models. Engadget reports that the the Motorola WX445 runs Android 2.1 with some type of MOTOBLUR overlay (possibly the same version used on the Droid X), and sports a screen measuring somewhere between 2.5 and 3 inches.
The phone was also described as looking very “cheap,” and has been likened to a keyboardless Palm Pre. Read More
While Motorola didn’t do a great job keeping CHARM under wraps, they did manage to hide a few features of the candy bar phone until today’s official press release. Given the amount of MOTOBLUR and social-networking talk going on in the CHARM’s somewhat lengthy introduction, we’ve broken it down and provided you the juicy bits for easy digestion:
- 2.8” 320x240QVGA TFT LCD touch-capacitive display with Gorilla Glass
- Android 2.1 with the newest "enhanced" version of MOTOBLUR
- 3 Megapixel camera
- Physical QWERTY keyboard
- 2GB Removable MicroSD card included (expandable to 32GB MicroSDHC)
- WiFi B/G and N (Single-band 2.4GHz)
- Can capture 24FPS video (we assume that is with VGA 640x480)
- Secondary noise-cancellation microphone with CrystalTalk PLUS technology
- Compatible with T-Mobile HSDPA 3.6
- Support for Adobe Flash Lite
- 1170mAh Lithium-ion battery
- 3.5mm headphone jack
Additional MOTOBLUR and social networking features are described in the press release. Read More
It seems a new Android phone is on its way to T-Mobile stores, but it might not be the superphone you’re looking for. The Motorola Charm, revealed in leaked training materials sent to Engadget, is running an enhanced version of Motoblur on top of Android 2.1.
However, what makes this phone unique is its form factor, a candybar style with a front-facing keyboard, similar to many Blackberry devices. The materials also note a variety of changes and additions to Motoblur in 2.1:
- Seven home screens
- Motoblur widgets can now be resized
- Widgets include enhanced functionality including “Like” for Facebook and “Retweet” for Twitter
- Usual Android 2.1 enhancements, such as multitouch and 3D Gallery
No technical specs were included, but given the nature of the device, you shouldn’t get your hopes up. Read More
In exactly a week, on June 23rd, the 4 giants of the Android world - Motorola, Verizon, Google, and Adobe are set to announce something really great, dubbed "the next generation of Droid" at a special invitation-only press event in New York.
We can only guess what the event will touch on - surely, Droid X and Droid 2 are at the top of the list.
However, noting the presence of Adobe, it makes us wonder whether something much-much bigger is coming, i.e. Read More
If you thought that the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip used in the Nexus One and EVO 4G was fast, try this on for size!
Speaking at the Executives Club of Chicago yesterday, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha discussed the company’s plans to release a smartphone with a 2GHz processor before the end of the year.
Although Jha didn’t go into specific details about Motorola’s plans, it’s certainly exciting to hear about the rapid pace of development in the smartphone market, especially whilst it’s still in its infancy. Read More
I wasn’t too kind to the Flipout when we first covered it here, and I can’t say that the official announcement has done much to change my mind.
If it weren’t for the strange form factor (why can’t Motorola just stick to what we know works?), the phone would be another mid to low-range Android handset. For those of you in the States that think it’s hip to be square (see what I did there?), you’re going to have to wait a bit before you can get your hands on this perplexing device as it’s slated to hit Europe first – apparently by the end of Q2 2010 (seeing as how it’s June already, the launch should be imminent).
