Droid x

Can’t wait to get your hands on the next Android superphone - Motorola Droid X? Then you’ll be probably be interested to learn that Best Buy has already begun their pre-orders for the newest addition to the Droid family, which will be arriving in stores on July 15th.

The biggest difference between buying the phone from Best Buy instead of directly from Verizon is simply the bonus of avoiding the mail-in rebate, as Best Buy is selling the phone for $199.99 flat instead of Verizon’s $299.99 with a $100.00 mail-in rebate.

Droid 2 Sneak Peak: First Impressions

One of Gizmodo's readers Zack unexpectedly stumbled upon an upcoming Motorola Droid 2 at a tech show and didn't hesitate to snap some pictures and play around with this Droid successor.

Here are the main points of his review, in my favorite bullet point style, to save you some time:

  • about the same size as the original Droid
  • dark chrome overall color instead of the black
  • feels really nice - more curves, fewer edges
  • different button placement as the original, both on the outside and on the keyboard
  • blue coloring around the keyboard instead of gold
  • there is now a dedicated voice search button on the keyboard and the horrible d-pad is gone, replaced by cursor keys
  • no more lip on the right side with phone open
  • the Droid 2 name might change - Motorola reps are unsure of what it will be yet
  • same 5MP camera, though noticeable faster
  • most likely will come with vanilla Froyo - not Ninjablur
  • 8GB internal memory, 8GB micro-SD card
  • 1GHz processor

Verizon subscribers: say goodbye to unlimited data on that internet hungry Android device of yours. According to Businessweek, Verizon is planning on following AT&T’s lead in replacing unlimited plans in favor of a tiered pricing structure.

In an interview with John Killian, chief financial officer of Verizon, it was clearly suggested that a new pricing structure will have to be put in to place, as data traffic increases with the rollout of 4G in the future.

We’ve been hearing a number of things about the upcoming Droid X in the past few weeks, and Verizon have now updated their Droid site, giving us a few more details about their latest and greatest device.

The page confirms three things that we already suspected of the device. Firstly, it has a 4.3” display, most likely with a resolution of 854 x 480. Originally, when you hovered over the phone, you were told that it has a “720p screen”.

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.

droid 2

With details of the Motorola Droid 2 starting to find their way into the outside world, we now have photos and specifications of the new device, thanks to Droid Life!

Aesthetically, it doesn’t look like much has changed from the original Droid that we all know and love. The exterior remains mostly the same apart from the slide out keyboard, which is the only part of the device that appears to be significantly different.

New Motorola Droid Unofficial Froyo (2.2) Update Supports WiFi And Overclocking

My Droid World is on a roll! Yesterday they brought us a working Froyo update for Motorola Droid but it came with a serious omission - WiFi was not included.

After taking a breather, a few hours later they produced another version, this time with support for WiFi and overclocking.

There are a number of download options, varying in the CPU frequency hardcoded into the kernel - from 800 MHz to 1250 MHz, so grab the one you want and see if it's stable enough (I promise you - it will be FAST).

Last Updated: June 6th, 2010

It seems like almost every other day something new is leaked about the upcoming Droid Xtreme. This is fairly typical of any anticipated phone release so, while nothing new, it can get a bit confusing with so many sites reporting on every single leak regarding this phone. Here is a rundown of everything that is Motorola Shadow/Xtreme…

This phone was originally dubbed the Droid 2 before progressing into its second name, the Droid Shadow.
