Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on February 16th, 2011

Motorola’s successor to its Android-powered Droid X has now been spotted in pictures, looking a lot like the current version of the Droid X. If this leak is accurate, you can expect the phone to hit Verizon’s network and it will only support 3G.

It hasn’t gotten an official confirmation yet, but some specifications could include a 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 chip, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch 540 x 960 pixel resolution display, 8-megapixel camera and Android 2.2 Froyo.

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on February 1st, 2011

The Motorola Droid Bionic is now making an appearance on Amazon with a $150 price tag, with contract of course. Sadly the product page was removed shortly after word spread, but screenshots had already been captured and it’s existence proven.

The price could change over the next few months and that number could be just a place-holder, but $150 sounds pretty awesome to us. It’s supposed to arrive in May or June.

Motorola’s Xoom made a splash at CES and of course it has a lot of potential. What it also has, according to Moto’s developer page, is a barometer included, along with an accelerometer, magnetometer, ambient light sensor and gyroscope.

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on December 20th, 2010

Motorola’s Android 3.0 tablet has showed up again with a leak that shows clearer images and some more detailed specs. The new images show a 10-inch tablet with the completely overhauled interface, which includes the new navigation bar and lock screen. The back shows the five-megapixel camera with flash as well as a large external speaker and what looks like standard USB ports on the bottom.

Inside, the tablet sports a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 clocked at 1GHz with 512MB of RAM. It may not be available in a Wi-Fi only edition and could need a 3G or 4G connection to get online. Verizon is also connected to the tablet and could use it as a flagship for its LTE network, though 3G editions with EVDO and HSPA have been pegged for other carriers.

Motorola Olympus spotted

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on December 1st, 2010

The Motorola Olympus had previously been sighted in a blurry picture, and now someone out there claims that he managed to purchase the phone at a flea market. Yeah, sounds fishy enough, but you never know. He powered it up and was even able to access the developer menu that offered various features, like bypassing the activation screen.

From the pictures, the phone features an HDMI port and the usual microUSB port. There’s also a forward-facing camera that’s said to be larger than the Motorola Defy, hinting that the screen is larger than 3.7-inches. Hopefully we will learn more very soon.

Droid 2 Global launching on November 11th?

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

Word is that Motorola’s Droid 2 Global will be coming in two colors, one of which could be coming on next Thursday, November 11th. According to a leak, it will be the blue version of the phone. The white model isn’t mentioned, so we aren’t sure if Verizon is planning on holding that one back for a bit longer.

The white version may be too close to the R2-D2 edition and so perhaps they want to give that one a bit more exclusivity before having another white model. Anyhow, are you excited yet? It shouldn’t be long now.

There’s also a five megapixel camera with dual LED flash, 8GB of built in storage, plus an 8GB SD card and it will come with Google Android 2.2.

DROID Pro launching on Verizon for $299 on 2-Year Contract?

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on October 24th, 2010

Motorola’s Droid Pro worldphone has been spotted at a Verizon test website for $299 on-contract and as much as $700 unsubsidized. If the 1GHz unit arrives as shown without a rebate, it would be the most expensive Android handset offered, at $50 more than Samsung’s $250 Epic 4G.

That’s pretty strange for a 320 x 480 resolution phone without a huge Super AMOLED screen. This pricing may just be preliminary though. We should find out soon at any rate. Hopefully it will be cheaper.
