With Apple’s iPhone 5 unveiling finally behind us, it’s time to start focusing on some other (and hopefully more exciting) events set to take place in September. First up, we know Motorola and Intel will have something new to show us on the 18th in London, but, unlike Apple (yeah, I said it), they’ve managed to keep the secret rather well while also raising some hype.
Every major player seems to be struggling with sticking to deadlines and getting Jelly Bean out. The surprise might come from someone who’s just recently dipped into Android — Intel has told PcWorld it has 4.1 ports ready for its rather modest Android line-up, with the company’s employees already using Jelly Bean on their Medfield-based devices.
Earlier this month, Verizon Wireless and Motorola Mobility held an event in New York City to announce three new Android smartphones. The Motorola DROID RAZR HD, the Maxx variant of that device, and the DROID RAZR M. That last one, the M, is now available both on Verizon’s website and in their retail stores.
ZOMG! So like, has the iPhone 5 finally arrived!? Yawn. Forgive us for not sharing the seemingly blind enthusiasms that many are feeling, but it comes with the territory when you’ve been spoiled with such a diverse and impressive Android lineup this year. A 4-inch display? Welcome to 2010, Apple.
Is the iPhone 5 a Droid Razr HD Maxx killer? Come on in and witness the battle between the two phones.
Back in January, Intel and Motorola announced they were entering into a multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship (whatever that means) that includes Intel-powered smartphones. It looks like the first fruits of the collaboration, which also covers tablets, will be seen on the 18th.
Now that Google has acquired Motorola, they are able to make their opinions clear about whether they think Android is or will ever be suited for desktop use. With the termination of Motorola’s Webtop, it’s becoming clear that Google has no intention of ever using Android as a desktop OS. So the question is, will Google ever compete for the desktop market?
Eric Schmidt admitted that Google is selling very few tablets compared to smartphones. In fact, just 5% of all Android activations are from tablets. So, what can Google do to stimulate the growth of the sluggish Android tablet ecosytem?
C Spire Wireless is the latest carrier in the U.S. to bring the next generation of wireless technology to its subscribers. Along with the 4G LTE network deployment, several new high-profile Android phones have been introduced to run on the carrier’s high-speed Internet network.
Motorola releases a new commercial for the new Razr family phones, which doesn’t boast any specs, but merely suggests that it’s now a more confident company.
We’re not sure what the deal is with Moto, but they have a reputation for not updating their phones to the latest Android. I mean, seriously Motorola, why not just correct the problem instead of bribing people which adds to your bottom line?
