[Review] Motorola DROID X2: Even Raw Horsepower Can't Save This Phone From Mediocrity

Update: June 4, 2011 - I've taken an awful lot of flak for this review (and that's fine). I stand by the review because I can't honestly recommend this phone in good conscience. With that in mind, I realize that not everyone may share my opinions, and that's why I suggest potential purchasers go and take a look at it to see if they will notice the screen issues as much as I do.

[Updated: Yes There Will Be] Verizon: There Won't Be Any Unlocked Devices On Our Network

Update: Verizon has reneged on their previous tweet - unlocked HTC devices will be able to be activated on Verizon's network. Huzzah.

HTC may have switched to the good side, but that doesn't mean the Legion of Doom is finished. Far from it, in fact, as Verizon has taken the wrong a stance on the issue of locked bootloaders.

Admittedly, this may be a huge misunderstanding; perhaps the Verizon rep hasn't heard the big news about HTC yet, or the carrier simply hasn't had time to properly respond.

[Updated: Update Should Start Tonight, But Maybe Not For Everyone] Verizon: Motorola Droid X Gingerbread Update Starts Friday

UPDATE: According to Droid Life, the update should start tonight, but it may just be a "soak test", for users that signed up via Motorola's support forums. That's not entirely confirmed at this point, so if you happen to get the update, drop us a line.

A couple of notes from Motorola about the update:

  • The update will be pushed late tonight. If you go to bed, it should be waiting for you in the morning.

If you're lookin' to score the newly-released LG Revolution, but the $250 price tag is a bit steep for you, then hop on over to Wirefly, where you can get VZW's newest 4G LTE device for $200. I realize that may not be the deal of the century, but c'mon - a deal is a deal, right?

2011-05-26 09h41_15

Not sure if this is the device for you? Check the specs:

  • 4.3 inch 800*480 display
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 16GB Built-in Storage
  • 5MP rear camera with 720p video capture
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • Android 2.2

So there you have it - if you want a 4G LTE phone, but the Droid Charge or HTC Thunderbolt aren't your cup of tea, then this is the way to go.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY On Sale For $100 For New Accounts, $150 For Upgrades

The Playstation phone Xperia PLAY may not have quite hit store shelves yet, but it has been up for pre-order for a few days now. Amazon and Wirefly are both stepping up their game in an attempt to beat Verizon's price of $200 with contract, though, and have discounted prices accordingly. Specifically, Amazon has dropped the price for new accounts to just $100, and upgrades are $150. Wirefly has pegged both prices at $150, but hopefully they reflect Amazon's lower price in order to stay competitive.

[Unboxing & Initial Hands-On] Motorola Droid X2: Twice The Cores, Same Great Taste

The Motorola Droid X2 has only been out for a day now - and still can't be purchased via Verizon brick-and-mortars yet- but we've already managed to land one for review. I haven't had much time with it, but I do have some unboxing and hands-on pictures to go along with the initial impressions.

I'm not going to run through the unboxing in words because... well, it's me taking something out of a box.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Pre-Orders Shipping Today - Get Your Thumbs Ready, Gamers

Looks like Verizon isn't waiting until May 25th to ship the Xperia Play - at least a few customers have received confirmation that their phones have already been mailed.

We first caught wind of this yesterday, when @0mie tweeted:

all #Revolution #Play orders SHOULD start shipping Thursday night/Friday Morning :)

Today, one Droid Life reader confirmed the essiting info with the following screenshot:

Of course, it's possible - likely, even - that not all pre-ordered Xperia Plays have been shipped yet.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Drops Price of DROID Charge To $199 On New 2-Year Agreement

So, I'm probably not the best person to write about anything that might encourage someone to buy a DROID Charge (I sure as hell wouldn't, and our friends at Droid-life agree), but here we are. Amazon's offering the Charge for a slightly-more-reasonable price of $200 on a new 2-year agreement or eligible upgrade, down from the absolutely absurd price of $300 you'll get it for everywhere else.

I still wouldn't call it a deal.
