Leaked Screenshots Of Ice Cream Sandwich For The Verizon Droid RAZR Show Up Online, All Other Details Seemingly Absent

A mysterious post showed up on the Droid RAZR forums yesterday containing a whole slew of screenshots of the Droid RAZR running Ice Cream Sandwich. The original poster left no information about the build, nor did s/he reply to the gaggle of questions that followed the leak. Known only as dragon974, the poster seemingly vanished after dropping the goods.

Motorola Xyboard Root Method Should Work On All Moto Devices Running Gingerbread Or Honeycomb

Here's a bit of good news for anyone with an unrooted Motorola device - the root method released earlier today by Dan Rosenberg for the Xyboard/Xoom 2 should actually work on any Moto device that's running Gingerbread or Honeycomb. The direct quote, from Dan himself:

The Droid 4 root ("Motofail") should work on all Gingerbread Motorola devices that I know of. The just-released XYBoard root ("XYZ") should root all Gingerbread and Honeycomb Motorola devices.

Motorola Droid XYBOARD/XOOM 2 Root Method By Dan Rosenberg Now Available

Over the past 2 days, I've been watching a thread over at MDW that showcased a rooted Motorola XYBOARD tablet but instructed us to wait a few days for the root method to be released. Root was achieved by none other than Dan Rosenberg, the ninja from vulnfactory.org, who has been serving multiple root methods for previously unrootable devices left and right.

Good news, everyone [of you five fine gentlemen in the corner who own a XYBOARD] - as of this morning, we have the root files.

[Review] Motorola DROID 4: An Incredible Device - If You Can Handle The Awful Screen

The keyboard-packing Droid series is one known to most any smartphone fan. Over the past two years, we've seen the Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, and the Droid 3 all hit the market in an attempt to recreate the popularity of the the original Motorola Droid, all to no avail. All three handsets seemed to just miss the mark - be it lack of 4G or not enough RAM to please enthusiasts and power users.

Two Down, One To Go: U.S. Approves Google-Motorola Deal

Earlier today, the EU gave the OK on the pending Google-Motorola deal, even if it did so with a bit of hesitation. The U.S. has now followed suit and approved the deal, leaving only the Chinese to put the stamp of approval on before El Goog will fully own Motorola Mobility.

Google first announced its plans to purchase Motorola Mobility back in August of 2011. The proposal was met with skepticism from many companies, though Google has vowed to control Motorola as a separate entity and keep the playing field level for companies that wish to participate in the Nexus program.

Google Gets The Thumbs-Up From The EU To Acquire Motorola, Still Waiting On US, Chinese Approval

Google just got one step closer to finalizing its acquisition of Motorola Mobility with approval from the 27-member European Union. Google still needs approval from the U.S. and China, as well as a few other key jurisdictions, before it can bring Motorola into the fold, but at the moment things are looking rosy for the Big G.

The EU did express some hesitations about the deal, however. EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia had this to say in a statement to the press:

"This merger decision should not and will not mean that we are not concerned by the possibility that, once Google is the owner of this portfolio, Google can abuse these patents, linking some patents with its Android devices.

Initial Impressions And Hands-On With The Motorola Droid 4 On Verizon

A little over two years ago, a phone hit the scene that changed Android forever. That phone was, of course, the Motorola Droid. It almost single-handedly put Android on the map. Its QWERTY slider made it one-of-a-kind, and Android 2.0 was the hottest thing smoking. Fast-forward two years and three keyboarded QWERTY Droids later, and what do we have? The newest generation of Does, the Droid 4.

While some may argue that past Droids have been a letdown, The D4 fulfills many, if not all, of the requests made of the Droid line (on paper, at least).

The latest RAZR-looking, 5-row-keyboard-sliding, LTE-packing Droid incarnation - the Motorola Droid 4 - went live today on VZW.com and at Verizon Wireless stores nationwide.
