Droid owners, it’s time to start getting excited.  Rumor has it that the new OTA update that is being rolled out right now is said to be part 1 of 2 and is actually a preparation for the update... to 2.1.  The first OTA update, coming in at 61MB, was previously reported to have fixed a Facebook app glitch that prevented users from downloading the latest version.  While this is true, the sheer s...

Android owners that subscribe to Verizon’s FiOS TV service can now download the new FiOS Mobile for Android. Developed by Verizon, the new application allows users to search TV listings and manage... their FiOS DVR remotely by scheduling new programs, viewing a list of recorded content and viewing scheduled content. Now if they would allow us to view our recorded content, then the world would be almos...

ICD Ultra

Well, silly me.  Looks like in my post-CES haze, I forgot to post this video and photo gallery.  In any case, here’s a very brief hands-on video, and... some photos, of the Ultra by ICD.  This device was built to run on a test version of Verizon’s LTE 4G network (and is not the larger Vega that is destined for T-Mobile UK, as I had written prev...

Motorola Calgary

Live photos of the Verizon Wireless Motorola Calgary burst upon the scene back in October and we have been eagerly awaiting additional information about... this long-rumored handset. Phone Arena came through for all of us today with a few new tidbits about the Calgary, now supposedly known as the Devour A555. The Devour is shaping up to be the little broth...

HTC DROID Eris

Verizon sent us a message last night telling us about the new HTC DROID Eris firmware update that has started going out to users.  This isn’t an... update to a newer version of Android, which we are still expecting, but rather a simpler update that fixes some problems with the initial version of the device.

Not all people experienced all...

The almighty Motorola DROID has come out on top in Time Magazine’s annual top 10 listing of best gadgets of the year.  Beating out devices such as the Nook and iPhone... 3GS, amongst others, some would say that the DROID was a relative underdog in the contest.  Nobody can deny the fact that the first official phone to run Android 2.0 has made shock waves in the indust...

According to InformationWeek, the update to Android 2.0, or 2.0.1 for at least one version of the Hero, is coming. I think a few people have predicted this. However, further speculation suggests that... Verizon may be updating the Droid Eris with a ‘significant system update’ at some point during the first quater of 2010 which may go beyond people’s expectations!

Wishful thinking has...

Best Buy put out a release touting its selection of 5 Android smartphones that are available for $99.99 this holiday season.

The HTC Hero and Samsung Moment are down to $99.99 from Sprint’s... normal $179.99.  T-Mobile’s myTouch 3G and Motorola CLIQ are down to $99.99 from $149.99 and $199.99, respectively.  Best Buy is also offering the HTC DROID Eris for $99.99, which is the same as V...

Mobile advertising firm AdMob has released some statistics about mobile web use, and the numbers coming out of the Android segment are quite interesting.

As of November 18th, only days after... its November 6th initial availability, the Motorola DROID for Verizon Wireless made up a whopping 24 percent of all Android smartphone traffic going through AdMob’s servers.  For comparison, t...

I finally got around to putting together a review specific to the U.S. versions of the HTC Hero, Sprint’s own Hero and the DROID Eris for Verizon.  They are largely the same as the original Hero... found in Europe and other parts of the world, but as a U.S. site, it made sense (pardon the pun) for MobileBurn.com to have a separate review.

I’ve included some of the photos and videos aft...
