    Motorola may not be the least friendly manufacture around when it comes to unlocking bootloaders, but if not, it's darn close. A precious few Motorola Androids are supported by the company's official unlocking site, and in many cases, you'll still need a developer-series handset; for a serious Android tinkerer, it can be enough to drive you away from Motorola altogether. Luckily, it looks like the community is coming through where Motorola itself has not, and an exploit has been announced that should be able to let owners of a few Motorola Androids open up their phones' bootloaders. While ...

    The Holidays are now behind us but that doesn't mean OEMs and carriers are not prepping other promotions, like this one, which will reportedly be a Verizon offer for Valentine's Day. There are no specific pricing or availability details attached but the report claims both of the phones mentioned below will go for less than $50 on contract. The Nokia Lumia 822 will be, according to the report, available in red, as pictured above. The phone is currently being offered for $49.99 on a two-year contract and comes in black, grey and white. We've reviewed the Lumia 822 in December so give that a ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we wrap-up 2012 with some Galaxy Note II rumors that include new color variants. We then talk about the possible Galaxy S IV and some possibilities of an S-Pen to be included in the box. Samsung keeps the spotlight next as we talk about some holiday deals that they're offering to those who register their device. Then we move to the Motorola Droid RAZR M HD rumors, which include more than a long and ridiculous name. We end today's show, and this year's last show as well, by discussing tablet sales and how they've now surpassed smartphone sales. All this and ...

    Alongside the RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD earlier this year, Motorola introduced the smaller, slightly lower-end RAZR M with a 4.3-inch qHD display. Now a new rumor suggest that Motorola is already looking to create a successor to the RAZR M, with some specs arriving to describe a so-called RAZR M HD. Sure enough, the M HD would supposedly move up to a 720p screen, and while it would grow slightly to 4.5 inches, would still be a little more petite than the RAZR HD's 4.7. The processor and RAM would stay unchanged, but the phone might get 16GB built-in flash. Besides that higher-res display, ...

    "In a world where Google Maps exists, who needs a carrier-branded navigation offering?" That's the question that leapt to my mind when I was given the opportunity to review VZ Navigator, Verizon Wireless' house-branded GPS navigation app. Not that I had a bad history with carrier-badged navigation software; the first turn-by-turn app I ever used, back in 2004, was only briefly sold under its original TeleNav title before being repackaged as "Sprint Navigation." And I loved it. Even running as a Java app on a dumbphone, the software got me where I needed to go, and featured plenty of ...

    As Motorola users are all too aware, while the company does an admirable job of trying to let users know about the Android update situation for each of its models, it has a nasty habit of going back on previous plans to bring updates to certain models. As such, whenever the company gets around to updating that list, we find ourselves walking on eggshells. So, what's the news today? This update focuses on plans for Jelly Bean upgrades. To that end, Motorola lists a dozen models that it currently plans to bring Android 4.1 to. Some of the devices listed have ETAs attached to them; the three ...

    When we reviewed the Verizon Motorola Droid RAZR M one of the cons we listed was the lack of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on the device, out-of-the-box. The phone is rather fresh and there's still hope for a timely refresh, more-so that there is a leaked build out there for the brave, a good indication of things to come. If you just can't wait to get the firmware upgrade the official way and you like the adrenaline you can grab the leak named Blur Version.77.111.10.XT907.Verizon.en.US. Of course you will do this at your own risk and we advise against it but those who don't care about warnings ...

    There are two kinds of Android users: Android Power Users, and everyone else. This tip is specifically for the former group, but "everyone else" will probably get a laugh out of it. When you unlock the Droid RAZR M you'll be nagged with a "warning" every time you boot your smartphone: Your device's bootloader has been unlocked, allowing critical software components to be altered in a manner that may cause damage to the device or result in injury to users. Motorola disclaims any liability for harm to person or property resulting from use of this device -- and all warranties are null and ...

    We know something about slow news weeks. For much of the summer, that's what the tech news cycle felt like: waiting for promised events and products, attending the occasional (and awesome) product launch, but always looking forward to the "coming months." Well, that month has finally come, and it's called September. Hot on the heels of IFA in Berlin, a bevy of companies -Apple, Nokia, Samsung, and Motorola- all hosted events of their very own, unleashing a slew of hot new hardware devices on the public. Tune in to this week's Pocketnow Weekly podcast for a boatload of iPhone 5 discussion, ...

    Anyone following the news from last week's Motorola announcement in New York City could be forgiven for overlooking the Droid RAZR M. Alongside the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR Maxx HD, the true successors to Motorola's thin-phone throne, the M seems slightly underwhelming. It's a smaller device packing a display from last year along with an unremarkable spec sheet, its casing featuring none of the aggressive visual flair of its headlining compatriots. Indeed, obscured by the glow of its larger, more-powerful cohorts, the RAZR M appears at first glance a completely forgettable device. ...

    Last week, we got news of Motorola's latest Android offerings, the regular and Maxx versions of the Droid RAZR HD, as well as the more petite Droid RAZR M. Besides those models coming to the US on Verizon, we learned that the international version of the latter, the RAZR M (sans Droid), would be seeing some hardware changes, swapping out its Snapdragon for an Intel chip. Now it looks like Motorola and Intel are trying to drum-up some excitement for the international launch of this handset, releasing a new teaser video. Even if we hadn't already heard about the Intel-powered Razr M, this ...

    Even though mobile-technology trade shows are awesome, the news of the world keeps on getting made even outside their grounds. When I returned from IFA, I found a little package waiting for me, and inside it, a Droid RAZR M, one of three new RAZR-branded devices announced by Motorola at yesterday's NYC event. Our own Adam Z. Lein posted some hands-on video of the three devices yesterday, and now it's time for an unboxing of the littlest in the newest RAZR family. As a refresher: the RAZR M sports a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED Advanced display that they're marketing as a pseudo-edge-to-edge ...
