Posting this from a Motorola DROID

by: Michael OrylOctober 28, 2009

I am posting this from my newly acquired Motorla DROID, which the fine folks at Verizon have supplied me with. The display is gorgeous, and the HTML5 browser is most impressive, though it has issues with the WordPress WYSIWYG editor. In any event…wow.

I will post more impressions and photos and such as soon as possible. Time to run, my train stop is next.

Stay tuned.

Motorola DROID for Verizon launched, includes Google Maps Navigation beta

by: Michael OrylOctober 28, 2009

Motorola Droid for Verizon

Verizon Wireless has officially unveiled the Motorola DROID, the first Android 2.0 device to be officially launched and the first device to feature Google Maps Navigation, Google’s new GPS navigation service.  The new uber-Android smartphone will cost $199.99 when it becomes available on November 6th.

I’m about to catch a train to New York to meet with Verizon and Moto in just a few minutes and will, god willing, return with a DROID to review personally.

For now I am just going to link off to our story on the DROID, where you can get up to speed on specs and features.

Droid false starts on Motorola website

by: James TromansOctober 23, 2009

The BGR continues to pillage its sources within Motorola. This time, they bring us technical specifications and screenshots taken from Motorola’s own website of the up and coming ‘Droid’ device which they were raving about the other day. It turns out Motorola prematurely released information on Droid and then took it offline. This did not prevent someone grabbing screenshots while they were there, though.  The advertisement campaign which Michael has highlighted in his previous post is something rather bold, and entirely revolves around the iPhone. Lots of ‘iDont’ and ‘Droid does’. Despite the fact that this clearly shows that Motorola are playing a long distant second fiddle to [...]

Verizon seems serious about the Motorola DROID, sends out R2D2 toys to the media

by: Michael OrylOctober 21, 2009

Verizon sent me an R2D2 Droid

As if the website and TV commercials weren’t enough indication that Verizon is going to make a big push with the Motorola DROID, I just received a remote control Star Wars R2D2 toy from the UPS guy.  Verizon packaged the toy with some batteries, some bubble wrap, and a card that says “11.09” – and nothing else in the box.

Pretty funny.

You’ll forgive me if I don’t post a review of this particular DROID, but rest assured that I will certainly be playing with it later today… after I finish with the Samsung Moment that I picked up this [...]

Verizon Motorola DROID TV ads say it is “coming in November”

by: Michael OrylOctober 18, 2009

I noticed that Verizon is running a TV commercial that offers the same basic content as its promotion website for the Motorola DROID while watching Amazing Race this evening.  The only difference is that instead of a countdown timer, the commercial says “coming in November.”

This could mean that we’ll see an unveiling on October 30 and actual device availability in November.

Verizon launches promo site for Android 2.0 powered Motorola Droid

by: Michael OrylOctober 17, 2009

Motorola Droid promo site

The website that Verizon has launched for its new Android 2.0 (Eclair) based smartphone, the Motorola Droid, might be a bit cryptic, but it does appear to suggest that the new handset will be announced on October 30th – based on the weird countdown timer it displays.

The website takes a number of swipes at the iPhone (“iDon’t have a real keyboard”, “iDon’t run simultaneous apps”, etc) and reveals a few details about the device.  We know it has a 5 megapixel camera and runs Android 2.0, we also know that it will play music, do video, and feature a “high-res” display.  [...]

BGR posts photo of Motorola DROID (Sholes) with Android 2.0 running

by: Michael OrylOctober 14, 2009

Motorola DROID for Verizon

Not much detail yet, but the Boy Genius has posted a photo to his twitter feed that shows a picture of the Motorola DROID he has in his posession.  Interestingly, the device appears to be running Android 2.0 – Eclair.  We haven’t seen this version of the OS on any other devices so far, and 1.6 just very recently started making it onto the market on devices like the HTC Tattoo.

More details when we get them.
