Looks like Verizon’s future short term roadmap has been leaked and it contains orientative dates, subject to change, of the upcoming devices the carrier has in store for April and May.
According to the table attached, April 7 is the date to watch for Samsung’s 4G LTE device, called the Droid Charge, with its 4.3-inch display and4G LTE compatibility. Same day the Casio Commando (image) should hit too, a rugged Android device a la Motorola Defy. A week after, on April 14, it’s time for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play which we knew to expect on the [...]
PhoneArena has been tipped by a reliable source that claims to know the pace of releases for Verizon’s upcoming smartphones. First up, we’ve got the Thunderbolt, Verizon’s first LTE 4G smartphone, which is still slated for a mid-February release. Second, that mysterious and sort of buttonless HTC phone, perhaps landing as the Droid Incredible 2, is on track for a late February or March release. Also within the same time period we’ll see a release of the Samsung LTE 4G smartphone, which we know as the SCH-i520. And for Q2, expect to see the BlackBerry Monaco, or [...]
Verizon’s upcoming Droid Bionic from Motorola briefly appeared on Amazon at a list price of $150 on contract, according to a Droid-Life forum post. The listing has since been pulled.
This is the same asking price as the previously leaked Atrix 4G, which was also on Amazon Wireless and taken down quickly after posting.
Motorola’s Bionic and Atrix 4G share similar specifications, both being dual core devices running at 1GHz, featuring 8 megapixel cameras and qHD displays. The Bionic carries 512MB RAM, a front-facing webcam, and a 4.3-inch display. Engadget [...]
While discussing company performance in an earnings call to Motorola’s investors, CEO Sanjay Jha just provided confirmation on the anticipated release dates for the Atrix 4G, Droid Bionic, and the Xoom tablet.
We reported a couple weeks ago that the Atrix 4G may arrive on AT&T around March 1. It seemed like that choice of a date was more of an estimation than a set-in-stone release date, and those suspicions look like they’re playing out. Jha has now stated that the phone will be out slightly earlier, right around the end of February.
We’ll have to [...]
Update: Looks like that file was taken down due to legal issues.
Android still doesn’t have a decent music player. The player that comes with Android pretty much just plays music, which may be okay for some, but leaves many being tempted to jump to the Apple side of the fence.
You’re not alone, Motorola feels your pain, and has come up with a pretty nice looking Music Player app. Unfortunately, you’ve got to have a Motorola device to get it through legitimate channels. For those of you who don’t care about that sort of stuff — and can [...]
Thanks to the need of smartphone OEM employees to share test photos amongst one another, sites like Picasa and Flickr are full of images captured with unreleased and, in some cases, unannounced devices. Most of these shots are about as inartistic as you can imagine: picture after picture of people’s keyboards, mice, and coffee mugs — when they’re not macro shots of the wall. However, there are always a few gems among the junk, and we’ve managed to collect decent snaps of almost every handset announced at CES. (Full disclosure: we cheated with the Inspire 4G and [...]
The Motorola Droid Bionic is similar in a lot of ways to the Atrix 4G except that it has less RAM (512MB versus 1GB) and it is going to Verizon and not AT&T. Because it lacks the full 1GB of RAM, you can’t use that fancy dock that works with the Atrix. The Bionic is sporting the Tegra 2 dual core CPU, which should make the device feel really fast, but it surprisingly doesn’t make any noticeable improvement as you can see in this video. We’re thinking that the software on the Bionic might be a bit Alpha, and that when this thing ships, it ought to be a bit faster. [...]
