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,…
At Motorola’s On Display event in New York today, CEO Dennis Woodside announced that the company was committed to Android and would roll out upgrades to the latest version of the platform, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, “very soon”.
Motorola launched today the newest additions to the Razr family: the Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD, and the Razr M. Check out the picture gallery.
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. For those that were hoping for Jelly Bean, Motorola says an update will arrive sometime this year — though no specific date is mentioned.
Motorola just announced the Motorola Droid Razr M at an event in New York with Verizon. This compact member of the Razr family features a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, and 1GB of RAM. There’s also support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network, NFC, and a microSD card slot.
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.
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.
An independent user tested a dual core 1.0GHz Cortex A9 chip against a dual core Intel Atom chip running at the same speed. The results may seem surprising as it seems common knowledge that Atom would beat ARM chips in performance clock per clock, but as I’ve said before, Intel is not yet ready to take on the mobile market with its Atom chips.
Next week will be extremely busy when it comes to press events scheduled by various important players in the mobile business in an attempt to get some attention from the media and the public before Apple unveils the sixth-generation iPhone on September 12. Nokia and Motorola will introduce new handsets on September 5, while Amazon will hold its Kindle Fire 2 press event a day later, on September 6. A new Bloomberg report reveals that Motorola will unveil an interesting product on Wednesday, a new Android handset that will feature an edge-to-edge display – yes, that means the phone will…

There’s few places left sacred enough to go ad-free. With that in mind, it’s really not much of a surprise that Motorola, and Google through proxy, as working on getting a patent for ads via maps as well.
