Droid-Razr-M-Developer-Edition

As announced by Motorola CEO Dennis Howard, there will be a special developer edition available soon for some of the new Droid phones – he didn’t specify when they would be arriving in stores. It looks like you don’t have to wait for too long for one of them, as both the Droid Razr M Developer Edition and Droid Razr HD Developer Edition are already up on Moto’s website.

Google may have overtaken the iPhone with its Android platform. While Apple changed the smartphone game when it first released the iPhone in 2007, Android has fast overtaken iOS in mobile phone shipments. However, tablets are a different thing altogether, and Google’s own executive chairman Eric Schmidt admits it.

  Motorola Mobility has confirmed that the Motorola Droid RAZR M, announced earlier today by Motorola and Verizon, will be coming to the UK with a slight name change and a new processor. The UK variant will drop the Droid branding and be simply called the RAZR M. The Qualcomm S4 processor will also be replaced with an Intel processor. The form factor, including the edge-to-edge display will stay the same. And, the rest of the hardware specs seem to be unchanged (besides the basebands of course). This will be the first Motorola-Intel phone to hit the market. Doing a bit of digging,…

It’s official, Motorola has now announced the already leaked Droid RAZR HD. The new flagship device comes with a 4.7-inch HD display and will be powered by Android 4.0 ICS.

Google’s chairman and former CEO Eric Schmidt took the stage at today’s Motorola event in New York, to talk about the significance of the Motorola acquisition, but also to break some impressive new numbers about Android.

According to Schmidt, over 1.3 million Android devices are activated every day, of which 70,000 are Android tablets. That’s an impressive jump over the 1 million figure that Google boasted at Google I/O at the end of June. In other words, activations grew 30% in a little over two months.

Droid Razr M

Motorola’s big press event is about to start, and that means plenty of exciting new Android-related announcements are on their way. One of the devices expected to see the light of day today is a rumored smartphone with edge-to-edge screen. Based on what we’ve seen so far, we have no evidence that proves that the claim of an edge-to-edge smarpthone is anything more than a rumor. The leak really gave us little to go by, just indicating that it would have no bezel and that it would likely debut under the name RAZR M. With that in mind, we now have a press shot of two upcoming Motorola smartphones, the Droid RAZR M and the Droid RAZR HD.
