After a barrage of internet leaks and blurry cams, Verizon has finally come clean about the DROID 3. The Moto-made lineup will become a trilogy on July 14th for a price of $199 on a two-year contract. Your hard earned pesos will score: a 4-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera, dual-core processor and a fresh helping of Android 2.3. There’s also the addition of a redesigned keyboard, which now has a fifth row for numbers. As for all of you LTE hopefuls, you won’t find any 4G love here, but if Big Red hasn’t reached your coverage area yet, does it really matter? Full press release after the break.
There’s this saying in film, that sequels are almost never better than the original. Well maybe that rule doesn’t apply to Back to the Future II, but in most cases it’s pretty spot on. However in the world of tech a follow up almost guarantees major improvements where the first effort came up short. Just like film not all mobile devices deserve a part two or three, but it happens anyway. So is the Droid X2 another blockbuster hit? Or should it have been a straight to DVD release? To find out move past the break for our full review.
Prepaid peeps, Virgin Mobile and Motorola have got summertime plans for you! Pictured above is the Motorola Triumph a Froyo packed Android handset that allows you to pay as you go. This one kind of reminds us of something from Motorola’s Droid lineup. As far as specs, you can expect:
- 1GHz processor and up to 32GB of expandable memory.
- 4.1-inch WVGA touchscreen.
- 1400mAh battery.
- 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and front-facing VGA camera for video chat.
- HDMI out (cable sold separately).
- Pre-loaded with Virgin Live 2.0.
Arriving this summer, the Motorola Photon 4G reminds us a lot up the Atrix 4G. The main differences being the device ships with Gingerbread and includes a kickstand. No exact word on pricing and release, but as far as other specs go, here’s what you can expect:
- Dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM.
- Large 4.3-inch touchscreen with qHD (Quarter High Definition) display.
- Dual cameras – 8 megapixel, dual-LED flash camera with front-facing VGA webcam.
- 16GB of onboard memory, support for up to 32GB SD Card, for a total of up to 48GB.
- 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot capability, supporting up to eight devices on the Sprint 3G or 4G networks.
- Ability to utilize the webtop application while connected to a Motorola accessory dock (sold separately) to open, view, edit and send Microsoft Office documents using cloud-based web apps through the full Mozilla Firefox browser.
- Pre-loaded with Sprint ID.
Motorola hasn’t been the best at keeps unannounced devices under wraps lately. The Droid X 2 was recently one of the worst kept secrets in the mobile world, and it appears that the Droid 3 is now fighting for that prestigious title. No we don’t have blurry cam shots, or leaked fact sheets, nope, we’ve got something even better. Actual tutorial videos have surfaced showcasing the device and how to use some of its features. Speaking of features, we can now expect an 8-megapixel camera and a five row keyboard. We’ve gotta note that the videos clearly read: “Software Shown Not Final,” which means we could very well see something different from the final product. Three videos immediately after the break.
Of course we know that a Motorola Droid 3 is in the cards, but we don’t quite know just when. The folks at Techno Buffalo appear to have the inside scoop on what to expect from Moto’s third installment. According to their source, you can expect the following: a 4-inch qHD display, an 8-megapixel camera, a modified keyboard (with dedicated number buttons), HDMI-out, and a dual-core Tegra 2 processor. They’ve also advised that the Droid 3 will not be an LTE device, which is a real bummer! If everything adds up, you can expect to see something from Verizon in June.
This is just starting to get silly! Neither Motorola nor Verizon will own up to the existence of a Droid X 2, but both of their websites clearly say otherwise. Moto’s website has an instruction manual PDF currently online and Verizon has accessories for the X 2 listed as well. So let’s confirm what we do know: a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GHz dual-core processor, no front facing camera, or LTE. Now before you go bashing, because of the lack of LTE, remember there isn’t coverage in every market just yet. Who knows, maybe these are all fakes to throw us off the scent? Okay, probably not, but hey anything is possible right?
Well what do we have here? It looks like May 8th is gonna be an extremely busy day for the Now Network! They’ve got the BlackBerry PlayBook and Nexus S 4G set for release and you can now add the Motorola Xoom to the mix! Our Super Spies are at it again and have managed to snag another Sprint internal document for us that not only dates the release of the WiFi version of the Xoom, but most importantly the price! There’s also details on accessories as well. So the question is which tablet will you get? Or will you be holding out for the HTC Flyer? We’ll have more to come as things develop.
It’s the moment some of you have been waiting for! That’s right the Xoom is officially available at Verizon! You can score the first official Honeycomb powered tablet for $600 on a two-year contract. Or you could just drop $800 or as we like to say, “eight hundy” and score one of these bad boys contract free. Nothing said about the WiFi only version just yet, but come on you know you want this LTE-ready love machine. We just took a mental note that Big Red is currently carrying three mainstream tablets, wonder how they’ll play this angle? We’d expect to see some TV spots bragging about this soon, no matter how short-lived.
Did you pony up the bucks for a Motorola Atrix 4G? Are you starting to wonder what makes it tick? Enter the folks over at iFixit who did what they do best, a complete teardown! Inside you’ll find : NVIDIA Tegra 2 CPU, 16GB of NAND flash, 960×480 LCD display, and 1GB DDR2 RAM. If words don’t do it for you, why not pay them a visit for a full detailed breakdown, screens and all.
