Incredibly thin and powerful, the Motorola DROID RAZR was spotted making the rounds at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for its regulatory tests and certification. The device, however, appears to be the non-LTE variant, as it happens to sport radios for GSM and WCDMA bands commonly associated with AT&T’s network.
The device has been given FCC ID IHDP56ME2, although that does not say much about whether the device, in fact, is the Motorola DROID RAZR. The telling clue is revealed in one line that speaks of the tested device’s battery part number: SNN5899A, which is the same part number for the Motorola DROID RAZR’s non-removable, [...]
Ever since the release of the first tablet, people have been amazed at the new technology. Although it is not a whole new breed of technology, it sure seems like it is. More specifically, over 6 million of them have been sold already. And, that’s just Android tablets.
Therefore, those 6 million tablet owners are probably wondering when and/or whether they can update to the latest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. We have a nice full list of our opinions.Motorola XOOM
The Motorola XOOM has become one of the most well-known Android tablets and surely deserves that rank. Why? The XOOM was most-certainly used to [...]
Not too long after the thrilling launching of the Motorola DROID RAZR, Motorola again boosted the excitement of the public with another huge news. Motorola at first tweeted that it will be releasing devices with the latest version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich just 6 weeks later after Google will be able to release the final version.
There is still no news on when the Galaxy Nexus, along with Ice Cream Sandwich, will be publicly available. But, Motorola has claimed that it can release ICS-filled smartphones as quickly as six weeks after ICS is released.
If people were excited about the first tweet ( guessing what devices might get ICS), Motorola’s second [...]
Last week Sprint announced a new member of the EVO family, the HTC EVO Design 4G. If you remember, in 2010 when the original HTC EVO 4G was released, it changed the Android world. It was way ahead of any other phone out there at the time.
Both the Motorola Admiral and HTC EVO Design 4G are available for $99.99 on a two-year contract after a $50 mail-in rebate. The EVO Design 4G is a world phone with a 4.0-inch qHD display and a 1.2GHz CPU – not dual core, unfortunately. The Motorola Admiral features a processor with the same clock speed and a QWERTY keyboard below its 3.1-inch display. Motorola’s Admiral is also designed to military specifications and features [...]
Motorola has come up with a working solution for locking or unlocking the bootloader on its devices, and the first one to carry the software solution will be the Motorola RAZR, which will be announced in Australia later this month.
Christy Wyatt, vice-president and general manager for enterprise mobile devices at Motorola, told Irwin Proud that the Motorola team has been working on a locked/unlock bootloader software that will be first incorporated in Motorola RAZR. Proud posted about his chit-chat with Wyatt. However, the final decision about whether to lock or unlock a Motorola device’s bootloader still relies entirely on the phone carriers.
In the [...]
Now that we all know that Ice Cream Sandwich is real, and we also know all the great features it’s packing for us. Still, the biggest question that remains on everyone’s mind is “when will my device get Ice Cream Sandwich?” My best guess is that we will start seeing rumored devices with ICS pre-installed before the end of the year, to be released next year. Unfortunately that means that no upgrades to ICS will come to existing devices – except the Nexus line of devices – until next year.
According to Engadget:
Xoom owners can breathe easy however, as a support forum mod (totally reliable source) [...]
Last week, the same day the Galaxy Nexus was announced, Motorola announced the Motorola DROID RAZR. It’s shipping in November with the latest version of Gingerbread and is upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Motorola DROID RAZR also features a 1.2-GHz dual core processor, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass, and a Kevlar back. Also, the DROID RAZR is only 7.1 mm thin–pretty thin for an LTE-capable smartphone, right?
While Motorola and Verizon have told us basically everything possible about the Motorola DROID RAZR, its page on the DroidDoes website reminds of all the RAZR’s greatness. Personally, I really cannot wait [...]
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 [...]
British online phone retailer Clove has confirmed that the Motorola RAZR will be available from the retailer starting on November 1. The phone’s VAT-inclusive price is expected to be GBP454.80 (US$624).
To be called the Motorola DROID RAZR in the United States, the U.K. variant will be branded simply as the Motorola RAZR but will still be expectedly super fast with its 1.2-GHz dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, despite the recent launch of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the phone will run Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. Although, an upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich can be expected soon.
Owing to its “impossibly thin” size of 7.1 mm, the [...]
