Cyber Monday Update: We mentioned quite a few Cyber Monday deals last week, like AT&T’s basically free-on-contract HTC One X (sadly, not plus) or Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. Beyond that GS2, Samsung’s got a few additional offers mentioned on its Facebook page, including savings on a second Samsung device when you buy one through AT&T, and don’t forget that those Samsung T-Mobile deals we talked about are still good, including a $100 16GB Galaxy S III.
Thanksgiving is now upon us, for those of you living in the US, at least, while for today that means [...]
Recently Verizon and Motorola pushed forth an OTA update to Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX devices to bring them from Android 2.3 Gingerbread to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. And with it, users can enjoy a less intrusive version of Motorola’s MotoBlur interface. Android ICS fanatics will be excited to know that the browser, app drawer, and launcher (for the most part) have remained stock giving users the look and feel of unadulterated Android 4.0. That said, there is a fair amount of lag when going back to the homescreen and when browsing the web. Hopefully the Android community [...]
A little earlier this week we got to see a leak that seemed to reveal the coming arrival of a new color variant for the Motorola Droid RAZR, with a blue version of the handset tipped to launch on May 17. It seemed a little odd to be hearing about a new color option this long after the phone’s initial launch, but it sounded good all the same; the more choices, the better. Today that new blue model gets officially confirmed by Verizon, and we get to see a new leak that hints at a nice price break on the horizon for the RAZR Maxx.
It turns out that you may be able to get the [...]
So far, if you’ve wanted a Motorola Droid RAZR,you’ve had the option of the standard black model, as well as both purple and white variants. Sure, Verizon employees could get a special edition of the phone with red accents, but as far as readily-available choices go, we’re left with really just three color options. We keep hearing rumors about a new HD RAZR that may be about to drop, and who knows what colors that handset will come in, but in the interim it looks like there’s one more color choice for the original Droid RAZR about to make its debut, with a leak [...]
Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs have been leaking for the Droid RAZR for months now, and ever since March we’ve seen a real uptick in rumors about soak tests and possible scheduling for the official update to finally arrive. It’s not here quite yet, but a newly-leaked ROM may just represent the final update, as it will go out OTA.
Earlier this week, a Verizon doc surfaced which showed the carrier’s expectations for the distribution of ICS updates to a couple phones. For the RAZR and the RAZR Maxx, the document indicates Verizon’s already involved with testing the [...]
It sounds like we’re going to be getting another variant of the Motorola Droid RAZR, already available as the original model and the extended battery-life RAZR Maxx. This next RAZR would supposedly offer users a 720p display, instead of the qHD screen on existing models. There have been several names attributed to this rumored handset, including the RAZR HD and the Droid Fighter. Today, we’ve got some new imagery to look at that may show some Motorola hardware that reflects the same changes that we’ll be seeing in the Droid RAZR HD.
The phone we’re [...]
