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.
It appears that somebody threw the switch on Verizon’s YouTube channel leaking an ad for an unannounced Honeycomb tablet. The device featured in the commercial only bears Verizon branding, but looks a whole lot like a follow up to the Motorola Xoom. Though this would be extremely early for a Xoom sequel, stranger things have happened. This could also be an ad for the Xoom getting the highly anticipated LTE upgrade. Whatever the case may be, it appears a new Honeycomb tablet is bound for Verizon. Take a look at the video after the break.
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.
Not to be outdone by the competition, Verizon has finally added Windows Phone 7 to their catalog of devices, in the form of the HTC Trophy. Sporting Windows Phone’s almost uniformed specs: a 1GHz processor, 16GB internal storage, and a 5-megapixel camera, the Trophy seems to blend right in. We’re wondering if being connected to Verizon’s reliable 3G network is enough to make the Trophy standout from the other Windows Phones on the market? Be sure to circle back for our full review.
With all the attention the Motorola Droid X 2 has been getting, we’d bet you original Droid X owners feel a bit left out. Allow us to give you something to smile about. Starting this Friday Verizon will begin pushing Gingerbread (Android 2.3) to the Droid X. The software update will include: a download manager app, a refreshed user interface, app grouping and more. Sorry Droid X 2 owners, no official word when you’ll be seeing an update, but we’re banking on something soon. If you want full details, Verizon has been kind enough to put together a set of instructions to make sure everything goes smoothly for you.
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.
Hey it’s Everybody Gets a Trophy Day! Okay, maybe not, but Verizon’s first Windows Phone 7 handset the HTC Trophy has finally got a release date. Priced at a competitive $150 after mail-in rebate, the Trophy will be the second CDMA Windows Phone 7 device to hit the market, following Sprint’s release of the HTC Arrive. Oh wait there’s more! If you purchase the HTC Trophy before July 15th, you’ll get to choose from one of three free Xbox 360 games (Halo: Reach, Kinect Sports and Lode Runner). Hit the jump for the official press release.
After months of waiting and a run of oddball commercials, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play finally has a stateside release date. May 26th will be the day that Verizon customers can pick up the PlayStation certified smartphone for a price of $200 on a two-year contract. If you’d like to put your money up in advance, you can pre-order this bad boy starting May 19th. Full press release after the break.
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?
Are you a Verizon customer looking to to make the jump to LTE, but the HTC ThunderBolt isn’t exactly floating your boat? Did our stellar review of the DROID Charge give you a glimmer of hope that there just might be an LTE device in your future, only to find out the device had been delayed? Well turn that frown upside down! We know it’s Friday the 13th, but today is your lucky day! We’ve been hearing the DROID Charge is finally ready for its big release and tomorrow is supposed to be the big day! So are you ready to pony up $300 for some Super AMOLED Plus loving?
Update: Verizon makes it official the DROID Charge goes on sale tomorrow!
