Word is that a slightly upgraded version of Motorola’s Defy Android smartphone may soon arrive at AT&T. If this rumor turns out to be accurate, the handset will get support for 850MHz, 1,900MHz and 2,100MHz HSPA bands, which are used by AT&T and some Canadian carriers.

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on July 18th, 2011

The Motorola Titanium was officially announced by Sprint back in May. Of course no pricing or availability dates were known at that time, but as always the info comes in it’s own good time. That time is now. Sprint has announced that the 810G military-spec Eclair smartphone will hit store shelves on July 24th.

The price is $150 after a $100 mail-in rebate. This is a good one for folks who are rather tough on their phones, while others might want to put their money elsewhere and go with something else.

Motorola Droid Bionic Release Date Scheduled for This Summer

Posted in Motorola by Reuben Drake on June 23rd, 2011

The Motorola Droid Bionic was introduced at CES 2011 and since then it is nowhere to be found, has missed its speculated release dates, and many think that the phone is dead now. Not quite. Motorola has decided to give it a major overhaul and it should arrive this year, with a release date that is oh so close. And yet so far away.

If we can believe a tweet from the Motorola Mobility account, the phone is on track for its summer release, but we don’t have an exact date was provided.

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on June 22nd, 2011

If you own a Motorola Xoom and live in Europe, you can now download the Android 3.1 Honeycomb update.Looks like the SD memory card slot on the XOOM is finally sorted out as well. According to Motorola, the update will be coming over the next several weeks and that the functionality will vary by region.

So if you are in Europe and have a Xoom, you must be pretty excited right about now. Motorola really didn’t say much else about the update, so other improvements may be less useful than the Sd card slot.

Verizon Droid 3 Details Leak

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2011

We’ve known that the Droid 3 is coming soon, but we really didn’t know many details about the device. Now thanks to the folks at Techno Buffalo and their reliable source, we have some details. The Droid 3 will feature a 4″ qHD display as suspected and there will also be a keyboard that features a 5th row of buttons for dedicated number buttons.

Other features include a dual-core processor(We aren’t sure if it will be an NVIDIA Tegra 2 or a TI OMAP SoC), an HDMI out port, a front facing camera and a rear 8 mp camera. It should arrive in June. Nothing on pricing however. And sadly this won’t be a part of Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

Motorola Xoom Gets Overclocked To 1.6GHz

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on May 18th, 2011

Overclocking is the computer geek equivalent to souping up a Hot-Rod. Both go fast, but in different ways. A few months back we heard that the new Motorola Xoom Android Honeycomb tablet had been overclocked to 1.5GHz, and now someone has broke that threshold, with a speed of 1.6GHz.

The guys over at the XDA are the ones who did it. They have managed to get the Xoom’s processor up to 1.6GHz and guess what. That extra clock speed helped the Xoom score over 4000 in the Quadrant benchmark app, compared to around 1500 in the Xoom with its standard clock speed. Yeah. Not a bad boost at all.

Motorola Droid X2 now official

Posted in Motorola by Reuben Drake on May 18th, 2011

Motorola and Verizon have been teasing us for a while now with the handset and now they have decided to make the Droid X2 official. The 4.3-inch Android 2.2 phone will be upgraded to 2.3 and also features a qHD screen resolution and a dual-core 1GHz processor. The 8 megapixel camera has continuous autofocus and HD video recording in back as well. Every bit of it now official.

The X2 will cost you $200 on contract and will be available to buy online…drum roll please… tomorrow. It will hit stores a week later, on May 26th. Judging by the close proximity of the USB and HDMI ports on the side of the new X2, we wonder if there is a laptop and multimedia dock in it’s future.
