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). Read More
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. Read More
Another week another leak – we’re visited once again by our old friend the Droid Shadow (AKA: Droid Xtreme/Droid X), this time with two new pictures and few tidbits about the phone’s software.
In case you’re out of the loop, the Droid Shadow is said to be Motorola’s latest addition to Verizon’s Droid brand, which we’ve covered here and here (note that I incorrectly referred to the Shadow as the Droid 2 – from what I’ve read since, this is not the case). Read More
Although it’s been almost a month since the Droid Incredible made its debut, many people are still waiting for their new phone to arrive amid a plethora of delays.
Verizon’s CEO, Lowell McAdam, has said that the delay is due to higher than expected demand for the device, after being sold out just hours after release on Verizon’s web store.
The main cause of the delay is the AMOLED display, which is produced by Samsung. Read More
Time for another game of ‘Shop job or Shadow: Gizmodo’s received a picture from someone claiming that they found the upcoming Motorola Shadow on the floor at a Verizon corporate gym.
According to the tipster they had enough time to confirm most of the rumored specs of the phone before it was remotely locked down, though suspiciously, they only had enough time to snap one picture.
Engadget notes that the angle of the picture is uncannily similar to that of the leaked ‘Getting Started’ manual that we’ve covered earlier. Read More
Just like most Verizon Android phones, the LG Ally garnered plenty of hype with its advertising campaign – in this case, it was used as a promotional tie-in with Iron Man 2. With only a 600 MHz CPU and 3.2MP camera, it’s a pretty mid-range phone, but you’re also getting Android 2.1 and hardware keyboard, so at $99 it’s not an awful phone.
The phone was set for release on May 20, but now it seems that release has been pushed back. Read More
A user over at Howard Forums has leaked what appears to be a ‘Getting Started’ manual for an as of yet unknown Motorola phone. Rumor has it that this is the Motorola Shadow/MB810, a phone that we’ve seen in random leaks here and there for the last few months.
Apparently it’s an ultra-thin slider, which has some speculating that it will be Verizon’s follow up the original Droid. If this is in fact the MB810, then we know a little bit about the expected specs:
- 4.3 inch screen
- HDMI port
- 8 Megapixel camera
- 1080P Video Recording
- 802.11 b/g/n
This info all came via Engadget’s past coverage of the device here and here. Read More
Yesterday BGR leaked a few documents providing pretty much all the details on the new LG Ally Android phone except its price, and today Verizon filled in the only missing piece of the puzzle in the official LG Ally press release.
Come tomorrow, May 13th, you'll be able to preorder this relatively low-end but still pretty sweet phone for $100 after a $100 rebate on a 2-year contract.
For a budget phone that already runs Android 2.1, has a 600MHz processor, a 3.2" screen, a 3.2MP camera, a full hardware keyboard, 802.11b/g and n support, and a 4GB microSD memory card, $99.99 is not a bad deal at all. Read More
Boy Genius Report has released details about the upcoming LG Ally, which we now heavily associate with Iron Man 2, with a leaked document providing specs and release information ahead of the launch.
Catering for the low-end market, the Ally has a 600MHz processor and 256MB of RAM, and ships with Android 2.1. LG has also added their own touch to the phone with a custom theme. Read More
It's finally here - today should be the day when Verizon starts rolling out the Android 2.1 OTA (over-the-air) update that we reported on a few days ago.
The update page on Verizon's site, which provides benefits of the new 2.1 OS as well as the update instructions, still mentions "Coming Soon!" as the release date.
That last part, however, apparently means today, May 11th, according to a MobileCrunch tipster who sent in this internal memo screen:
We know it says "tentatively scheduled" and Verizon doesn't exactly have the best track record with releasing 2.1 when it says it is, but we have a hunch that it will actually begin on time this time around. Read More
