CLIQ 2 Finally Receives An Update To Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), Makes Us Nostalgic For Waiting On Gingerbread

Gingerbread may have been out for nearly a year and a half now, but did you know there are some phones out there that have been living on nothing but Froyo this whole time? It's sad and it's true. Today, though, one abandoned phone is finding a new home on Gingebread: the CLIQ 2. Finally rolling out the 2.3 update, after launching back in January 2011 with Android 2.2 on board.

Motorola's MOTOACTV Watch Gets An Update To Version 6.12/6.13, But Not All Devices Are Equal

Motorola has released a pair of updates for the MOTOACTV Android-based sports watch. The last round of updates came in March with new features for golfers. The new updates, versions 6.12 and 6.13, come with most of the same features, but there is a confusing split based on whether or not your device already has the golf features included.

Both updates contain enhancements and bug fixes including:

  • Improved calorie burn algorithm during cycling workout with heart rate monitor
  • Added Primary Activity selection during setup so your MOTOACTV is tailored to your primary sport
  • Improved watch performance after display wake up
  • Enhanced the way Album Lists are displayed
  • Improved connectivity with Wahoo BLE heart rate monitor

The golf-compatible MOTOACTV watches will also get:

  • Improved Golf club recommendation by widening the distance range
  • Improved calculation for total score after a golf round.

[Update: Now Rolling Out] Verizon Support Docs Updated With Details Of OTA Update 6.12.181 For Droid RAZR/MAXX (It's Not ICS)

Update 4/23/12: This update is now rolling out OTA (thanks, Kristopher and others).

It's been a bit of a disappointing ride for the Droid RAZR and its beefier brother over the last few weeks - first, we were told that the ICS update was to start rolling out on April 4th, but that didn't happen. Instead, Moto was going to start a soak test of a new enhancement build, but...

Samsung Files Trademarks For Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend; Motorola For Electrify Icon

Looks like Samsung and Motorola have been hanging out at the local trademark office again, as both companies have registered names of some upcoming devices.

Samsung registered three new names (because we know how much they love to release at least one new Galaxy device every month week): the Galaxy Metrix, Velvet, and Legend (cough HTC cough). Aside from that, we only know that all three names were registered as "goods and services: mobile telephones, smartphones." Surprise, surprise.

Motorola Droid 4 Set To Receive A Small Bug Fix OTA To Build Number 6.13.219

Looks like the RAZR Twins aren't the only ones set to get an OTA from Big Red - a changelog just hit the support docs page for the Droid 4 that outlines a small bug fix/enhancement update for the fourth-generation slider:

2012-04-18_14h25_41

If you just can't wait to get some update action on your device, Droid-Life already has the 18MB update available for download. Since it's an official build, it will break root, but rumor has it that Voodoo Rootkeeper is letting users keep root access once the update is finished.

Best Buy Acknowledges Motorola RAZR/MAXX ICS Update Delay With No Updated ETA, Maintains Rezound is Still On Schedule For April 6th

Last week, we got word from a Best Buy tipster that ICS updates would be rolling out to the Droid RAZR/MAXX on April 4th and the HTC Rezound on April 6th. If you've checked the calendar lately, then you're probably aware that today is April 5th - one day later than ICS was supposed to hit the RAZR Twins. Still, that OTA is nowhere in sight (soak test details for the RAZRs did surface yesterday, but it wasn't ICS).

[Updated] DROID RAZR/MAXX Soak Test Set To Begin Tomorrow, But It's Not Ice Cream Sandwich

Update: Looks like Motorola cancelled the soak test due to "deployment issues." Word has it that the update could still happen sometime next week.

Thanks, DW!

DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX users excited for an Ice Cream Sandwich update by last week's Best Buy screenshot should brace themselves for some bad news – it looks like the aforementioned devices won't be getting Ice Cream Sandwich just yet after all.

According to a letter being sent out to members of Motorola's Feedback Network, the soak test slated to begin tomorrow simply brings an update to build number 6.12.181 with various enhancement and bug fixes.

Motorola Announces RAZR MAXX Hitting Europe And Middle East In May

By most accounts, the Motorola DROID RAZR is an excellent phone, though battery life is questionable. Which is exactly what makes the RAZR MAXX such a great phone: at 9mm, it's still thin, but packs a battery with 85% more capacity (1780 vs 3300mAh). At the moment, the RAZR MAXX isn't sold in Europe and Middle East, but the company has just announced that will change sometime in May.

RAZR MAXX_Dyn_L_Back_EMARA Spider_Front_1, 8/11/11, 11:29 AM,  8C, 4274x2400 (768+2896), 100%, Bent 6 Adjuste,  1/20 s, R42.8, G30.0, B59.6
 RAZR MAXX_Dyn_L_EMARA

A quick refresher of the specs:

  • Android 2.3.6 (Android 4.0 update reportedly coming tomorrow)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP4430 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage, 16GB microSD card in the box (32GB of storage total)
  • 4.3" Super AMOLED qHD display
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • 8.99mm thin, 4.5oz

No word on what specific day it will go on sale, but we're sure the company will release some details closer to then.

[Updated] Motorola Starts Rollout Of MOTOACTV Software Update v6.6 With Golf Features

Last week, Motorola announced a separate Golf edition of the MOTOACTV fitness tracker, due to start shipping the first week of April. The good news is that as of today, existing non-Golf MOTOACTVs are receiving the same software through an upgrade with version 6.5 6.6, available via MOTOCAST. Update 4/2/12: Motorola pulled the 6.5 update and released 6.6 a few days later (today) instead. I am willing to bet 6.5 had some last-minute bugs.
