Big Red's Droid Army: These ARE The Droids You're Looking For

June 11, 2010

These ARE The Droids You’re Looking For!

June – August 2010 will be an EPIC TIME PERIOD for Droid Lovers? Why?

Motorola will be releasing the next two chapters in the “Droid Saga” to market, the elusive Droid X by Motorola (aka Droid Shadow / Xtreme / XTRM / Evo 4G Killer) as well as the follow up to the phone that single handedly saved Motorola from self implosion, the Droid 2. Current reports, compiled from Gadget University, Engadget, and Droid-Life.com, as well as our own personal sources, both devices should be available by the end of August 2010.

Want some unofficial official specs on both devices? as well as some sexy newish shots? Check after the jump!

#DroidDoes: FroYo + Overclocked + WiFi (Updated with Benchmarking)

June 5, 2010

I’ve spent the last 3 hours watching a television show for kids called “Kamen Rider Dragon Knight” and doing part one of an analysis on it for my personal blog, it’s time for some Android love!

So the story starts like this: last night, I had a Twitter conversation with @MyDroidWorld, regarding my want of his FroYo ROM, which has been running around in the wild for the last few days. I went to bed with the INSANE tease of “could be a good weekend”. What did I wake up to? I woke up to FROYO! It WILL be a good weekend! So, as it stands right now-I’m installing the ROM via the instructions outlined after the Break, and I will report back with my findings on them after some hands on time with it.

So are you ready guys? I would like to point out, this is for ROOTED USERS ONLY. As it requires either SPRecovery or ClockworkModRecovery to do the update and flash the FroYo ROM. It’s in the format of a NANDROID BACKUP file. So if you’re not Rooted, i’m sorry-you’ll have to sit this one out.

Get the FroYo Love after the break!

Droid Xtreme – All But Official?

June 3, 2010

I don’t know where the hell Kellex got these at, but Droid-Life.com has snagged 2 PRIMO shots of the brand spanking new iPhone / Evo 4G Killer – the Motrola Droid Xtreme (aka Shadow), and I must say, HOLY CRAP BATMAN! I WANT!

Seriously, we also got a handful of ADDITIONAL Specs added to the growing list of confirmed / unconfirmed features. This is shaping up to be a BEAST of a phone.

Bigger screens, and more info after the break!

Dr. Droid: Why You Don't Need an Anti-Virus on Android (RE: Norton for Android)

May 31, 2010

So, Droid-Life.com broke the story on Symantec, the makers of the ever popular universally hated PC anti-virus / firewall / internet security suite, waste of memory called NORTON. And how they plan on introducing an Android client of their wonderful application.

Check out Droid-Life.com’s full post, and my thoughts on why this is a horrible idea after the break!

May 28, 2010

So, here’s the deal. The Motorola DROID came out on November 6th, and now it appears that the device will be replaced with the OFFICIAL successor, the Droid2.0 sooner rather than later. NOT COOL. But whatever…

Droid Does: FroYo! Kind of….

iWhat? Evo who? Droid gets XTREME (or..Shadowy…or HD?)

May 25, 2010

so, what the HELL is up with people leaving advanced Smartphones that aren’t OFFICIALLY RELEASED PRODUCTS laying around? First the Apple employee leaves the prototype iPhone 4 in a bar, which as we all know led to the editor of Gizmodo getting the “Meth-Lab-In-The-Basement” treatment.

Now this.

So apparently, Verizon has a corporate gym (who know right?), and VZWRep J. Techsupport happened to leave his top secret Motorola Shadow on a bag, or a bench, or the floor, or a locker..or..something.

And someone (presumably with his own Moto Droid?) snapped a nice little spypic of it.

wanna see? after the break + confirmed / rumor specs:
