Netflix Android App Officially Arrives On Three More Devices

by: Aerol BibatMay 26, 2011

Earlier this month, one of the Android platform’s most awaited for apps arrived. Netflix for Android followed in the footsteps of its iOS cousin and literally exploded on to the scene. Combining Netflix’s recognized brand presence with smooth operation, Netflix has fast become one of the platform’s killer apps.

Unfortunately, it only worked on four phones: the HTC Incredible, HTC Nexus One, HTC EVO 4G, HTC G2, and Samsung Nexus S. This severely curtailed adoption of it – though I’m betting that sales for those phones got bumped up quite a bit. Well, movie fans who didn’t immediately run out and buy new phones, here’s some good [...]

Motorola Confirms Gingerbread Update For Droid Phones

by: Aerol BibatMay 24, 2011

It seems that Motorola’s Support forums are buzzing today with discussions about the impending DROID X Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update. A lot of users are thinking that ActiveSync will still be broken even after the update, however Motorola customer support has been quite busy assuring loyal customers that everything’s all right and the feature will be right as rain after the update.

Activesync is a pretty integral feature for business phones – mostly because it helps sync your PC with your phone; enabling the easy sharing of data. The current version’s been slightly crippled on Motorola phones, but hopefully this update fixes those [...]

Motorola Droid Pro

According to a leaked screenshot slash photo of a monitor, it would seem as though Verizon are planning on shipping the Droid Pro out to people who pre-order it BEFORE the official launch date of the device. Unfortunately, ‘Iconic Device’ pre-sales are only available to consumers through ‘My Verizon’ direct sales channels and they are not available to retail locations in the states of Pennsylvania or Massachuestts. Pre-ordering will commence on Nov 9 and shipments of these devices will start almost immediately afterwards.

To refresh your memory, the Droid Pro is set to offer a 1Ghz processor and [...]

Google begin instant search for Android

by: James TromansOctober 26, 2010

Instant search from Google on Android

It would appear as though certain Android phones will be treated to Google’s instant search. This technology has recently hit the full desktop variety of Google’s web-portal. We’re sure you are fully aware of Google instant search, but in case you are not, it is a new search enhancement that shows results as you type.

The general benefit afforded by this type of search process is that you can find what you want quicker by not having to type in the whole search phrase. On the Desktop, this is probably a little beneficial, but it goes without saying that on the mobile this could be really [...]

Motorola Droid FRG22D firmware with Flash 10.1 support rolling out now

by: Michael OrylSeptember 2, 2010

Flash 10.1 on Motorola DROID

My Motorola DROID received a second Froyo update yesterday, this one being the FRG22D update that adds the ability to download the Adobe Flash 10.1 browser plug-in from the Android Market.

So if I got it, you guys should all get it pretty soon, too.

I installed Adobe Flash 10.1 and it seems to work decently, so far.  I will have to play around with it more to see how it compares with the built-in one on the DROID 2.

Motorola Milestone hits the U.S. with Cellular South

by: Michael OrylAugust 11, 2010

Motorola Milestone for Cellular South

Well now, this is a pleasant surprise. Today Cellular South announced that it is now offering the Motorola Milestone to its customers for $149.99 (after mail-in rebate).  The Milestone name had been used only by the GSM/UMTS version of the CDMA Motorola DROID that Verizon Wireless offers.  This Milestone, however, runs on CDMA networks, which means it has basically a DROID with a different name.

The Cellular South Milestone ships with Android 2.1 loaded, and offers the same 3.7-inch touchscreen display as the Verizon model.  Other highlights include a 5mp camera with dual-LED flash, support for 32GB microSD [...]

Motorola Droid OTA updates to Android 2.2 begin

by: James TromansAugust 11, 2010

The news on the wire is that Motorola Droid Android 2.2 update has begun over-the-air. Engadget are reporting a mass influx of ‘tips’ commenting on the fact that their original Motorola Droid’s are beginning to receive upgrades to Android 2.2, which is currently the most recent version of Android. Froyo is based on the Linux Kernel 2.6.32 and is is the last 2.x version of Android we should expect before Android 3.0 aka Gingerbread. This unreleased version of Android will run on Linux Kernel 2.6.33 and will become available from Google in the new year. After this release we should see phones such as this one receive yet another update.
