[Updated] FCC Filing Reveals Motorola Droid Bionic (XT875) Photos, User Guide, 4.3" Screen, LTE/World Radios, And Inductive Charging Cover

The Droid Bionic, Verizon's most anticipated and delayed phone of 2011 (alongside the SGS2), expected to show up around September 8th, just got a few details we were curious about confirmed in its FCC filing docs, along with a slew of photos. Hilariously, it looks like either FCC has been testing this phone in a warzone or they have a pack of wild puppies around the office, because the device looks like it's just been through battle and gotten a Purple Heart.

How-To: Manually Update Your Verizon 3G XOOM To Android 3.2 HTJ85B (Rooted Or Unrooted, With Locked Or Unlocked Bootloaders)

The Android 3.2 update for the Verizon 3G (soon-to-be 4G) XOOM can be flashed right now, before it hits your device over-the-air.

Custom Recovery

If you've flashed a custom recovery (and gave up the warranty), you can find update instructions over at MDW - in this case, you don't need our instructions below. This option is good for those with unlocked bootloaders (though if you're rooted, it seems the only update option right now is to install a pre-rooted update which will wipe your device).

Leaked Verizon 2011 Roadmap Reveals Launch Dates For A Slew Of Android Devices, Including Bionic, Stratosphere, Vigor, Revolution 2, And XOOM 4G Upgrade

Get ready, Verizon customers. IGN just leaked Verizon's alleged 2011 roadmap, and, unsurprisingly, it features Android quite heavily. While there aren't too many details on any of the devices outside of what we already know, it will give you a good general idea of what to expect from Verizon this year:

  • Samsung Stratosphere: Previously rumored as Verizon's version of the Samsung Galaxy S2, the Stratosphere is listed as a "4G Smartphone w/Android 2.3." While it isn't exactly confirmation, there is a chance that this rumor was spot-on.

Verizon XOOM Android 3.2 Update Rolling Out Soon - SD Card Support Is Finally Here

Well, it's only taken about five months, but Verizon XOOM owners will finally be able to make use of that lovely microSD slot on the side of their tablet. Of course, the OTA update in question does a fair bit more than allow you to up your XOOM's already robust storage. Take a look at this list:

changes

While Verizon (they're the ones publishing the update) doesn't explicitly state that the update, dubbed HTJ85 (has a nice ring to it, right?), brings Android 3.2 to the XOOM, it's clearly implied by the addition of "Screen Scaling Compatibility Mode" - a feature of Android 3.2 that we talked about a while ago.

[Wirefly Schmackdown] Motorola Photon 4G Vs. HTC EVO 3D: Fight!

As Sprint's newest dual-core WiMax device, there was the little doubt that Motorola Photon 4G would inevitably be compared to the HTC EVO 3D.

Fortunately, Bob Kovacs of Wirefly took it upon himself to find out which device is better by throwing them both in the ring together to face off in the Schmackdown.

MotoDev Site Confirms Official Droid Bionic Specs, As Underwhelming As They Are

The Droid Bionic. You've heard the name for about three-quarters of the year now, and the hype surrounding the world's first dual-core Droid has seen its fair share of ups and downs. Last week we found out that the device would finally be hitting the streets in September -- too little too late, if you ask me. I'm not entirely sure what market Motorola plans on competing with at that point, as the beastly Galaxy S II should be available on Big Red by then, along with the new iPhone.

Motorola Photon 4G Already Rooted, But The Process Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

So here we are, two days after the release of Sprint's newest dual-core WiMax device, the Motorola Photon 4G, and a clever dev by the name of edgan over at the XDA forums has already found a way to gain root access to the device. I must warn you, however, the process doesn't appear to be the easiest thing I've ever seen.

Before we get started with the full instructions, there is a list of must-have items in order to make this work:

  • HD Docking Station
  • USB Mouse
  • USB Keyboard
  • HDMI Cable (for HD docking station)
  • WiFi

Got it?
