The Motorola Droid 2 is making some commotion these days, as more developers are showing signs of interest in crafting Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs for the device. You might already have heard of AOKP (Android Open Kang Project) ROMs. For those of you who haven’t heard of it yet, it is one of the famous custom ROMs gaining popularity these days, next to CyanogenMod ROMs.
AOKP ROMs have been making their way to many devices, one of which is the Motorola Droid 2. What makes AOKP flexible is that it is officially opensource and developers can use it to make their own ICS ROMs on any device they wish.
Developed by XDA-Member Albinoman, the AOKP ROM for the Motorola Droid [...]
A rooted phone can take you to many other possible worlds beyond what your phone’s manufacturer or carrier would allow you to. With root access, you can enjoy custom ROMs, remove pesky bloatware, improve the phone’s performance, and personalize your phone the way you want. For the price of voiding your warranty, these great possibilities can be enjoyed on your rooted Motorola Droid 2.
The Motorola Droid 2 was first released with Android 2.2 Froyo, but Motorola has provided an upgrade for Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But, you really think you’d stop at Gingerbread, especially with creative and diligent independent developers? You can also enjoy Android [...]
Proud owners of the Motorola DROID 2 are in for an awesome New Year’s treat, as a team of Android developers is working on bringing the Ice Cream Sandwich update to the DROID 2. As of today, the early build of the popular CyanogenMod 9 (based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich) has been released for the Motorola DROID 2 Global.
Featuring a 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 processor, the Droid 2 Global definitely cements the rumor that even older single-core devices can keep up with Android’s latest version. Released way back in late 2010, the Droid 2 Global is a decent device with a physical keyboard and scratch-resistant display (thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass that it [...]
Remember the good old Motorola DROID 2? And for that matter, remember Gingerbread? At around the same time as Google unveiled Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the Galaxy Nexus, Verizon broke good news to Motorola DROID 2 users: they can now upgrade to Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The update hit devices back in very early September but was abruptly removed from Verizon’s website and from some DROID 2 handsets. Motorola opened a support forum to report on Gingerbread’s issues. If you take a look, you will find a significant amount of errors and upset customers.
But now, Verizon, Motorola, and Google have come to the rescue by sending out the Gingerbread [...]
It is becoming a trend for Amazon to start offering good deals for new mobile phones when you purchase through them. We recently reported how phones like the Samsung Vibrant and Captivate were on sale there, and now it is the turn of the Droid 2. Indeed, you can now pick-up this device for only $99.99 providing you sign into a new service plan too.
This deal brings the Droid 2 pricing in-line with the non-Android Blackberry Torch. The Torch is often reviewed as a weaker phone so this serves to highlight the great value of this deal for potential Droid 2 enthusiasts. If you want to check out this deal head on over to [...]
I posted my review of the Motorola DROID 2 for Verizon Wireless on MobileBurn yesterday afternoon. Here’s the intro from the full Motorola DROID 2 review:
When Verizon first launched the original DROID by Motorola, it marked the carrier’s first step into the world of Android smartphones – and it was a good one. The DROID, like the DROID 2 we review today, features a large 3.7-inch WVGA resolution touchscreen display and a slide-out 4-row QWERTY keyboard in a design with subdued styling.
Just as the original DROID was a good device, so is the new DROID 2. It still has all of the basic features [...]
The Motorola Droid 2 R2D2 edition for Verizon is probably the coolest (ok geekiest) phone every to be created on a mass production line. I have to say, the pictures look pretty awesome. The Starwars, Empire Strikes Back special edition phone will become available in limited quantities and you can sign up for alerts at the official website here. To get you in the mood, IGN Gear have posted a number of ‘in the wild’ pictures of this Motorola device. We have showcased a front and rear shot here for you but for the full work-up check out the source.
Some have commented that the device has ‘too much [...]
LetsTalk is now offering the latest Verizon DROID handset, the Motorola DROID 2, for $99.99 with a two-year service agreement and free shipping. The DROID 2 is a refresh of the DROID and comes packed with the latest Android OS, 2.2 Froyo, and sports a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard as well as a 1GHz processor, and Adobe’s Flash 10.1 player.
Google just announced some cool new functionality for smartphones running Android 2.2 Froyo, like the new Motorola DROID 2 that I received this morning. Voice Search lets you use your voice to dictate messages, look up maps, play music, and even send yourself a note – all from one voice command.
Chrome to Phone is an extension for Google’s Chrome Browser that sends phone numbers, page URLs, YouTube videos, and Google Maps to your smartphone with the push of a button on the browser. It is very cool.
Both Voice Search and Chrome to Phone are available for free for Froyo devices in the Android Market. The Chrome extension can be found here.
