    Yesterday, we saw Verizon clear up a few things about upcoming updates for some of its Android lineup that would bring these CDMA phones the ability to roam globally on GSM-based networks. All told, the carrier committed to getting this feature out to the Droid 4, RAZR, RAZR Maxx, and Rezound sometime over the summer. Today we get a hint of just how this roaming might arrive, thanks to a recently-leaked ICS ROM for the Droid RAZR. While it's not clear exactly what software build we're looking at here, the takeaway seems to be that the update that will enable global roaming will likely be ...

    Late last week, we started hearing some new rumblings about Verizon's plans for bringing global roaming to some of its Android lineup. We already knew that both the Motorola Droid 4 and LG's Spectrum would make the cut, and Verizon would activate their roaming abilities at some point in the future. The new leak that brought the issue back to the forefront last week concerned HTC's Rezound, with an in-store display advertising the pending arrival of global roaming as one of the handset's features. There were also rumors accompanying that find that Motorola's Droid RAZR (Maxx) would join ...

    Signs started emerging late last year that Verizon was planning on bringing global roaming capabilities to a couple of its then-upcoming LTE-enabled smartphones. It wasn't long after that when a Verizon representative confirmed plans to bring just such a feature to a selection of the carrier's Androids. These phones wouldn't arrive with global roaming enabled, but the feature would be delivered at some point in the future – it seemed at the time like it might be closer to the end of Q2. It looks like Verizon could be nearly ready to flip that switch, as retail locations are updating ...

    Motorola has a fantasist list available for users who are interested in learning when Ice Cream Sandwich should be coming to their smartphone or tablet. Two months ago, we saw the company update that list with its latest data, advising that the international RAZR would be seeing ICS arrive sometime in Q2 2012. We already knew that ICS was a lock for the Droid RAZR on Verizon, as the carrier had published its own list of confirmed ICS updates just a few days prior. On Motorola's list, though, progress on that update was marked as still being in its "Evaluation & Planning" stage, without ...

    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 blue RAZR even ...

    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 showing the Android ...

    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 update, and that it could start ...

    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 looking at here is Motorola model MT887, ...

    We first heard of the 6.12.181 update for the Verizon Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX at the beginning of April but shortly after rumor had it the manufacturer was dropping the refresh in favor on a possible Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich soak test. It seems that either the reports were faulty or Motorola changed its mind because the full changelog for the upcoming 6.12.181 refresh has been made public. It will be applicable to both the Droid RAZR and the RAZR MAXX and it will bring, as usual, bugfixes, improved battery life, accurate 4G indicator plus the rest which could be ...

    Motorola has been on a roll when it comes to Droid RAZR models lately, coming out with the slightly-revised RAZR Maxx just a few months after the original handset made its debut. Since then, we've heard about plans for a possible third RAZR, tipped under the codename Droid Fighter. Today, we get to check out some evidence that may just reveal an additional RAZR variant, or perhaps give us what will be the Fighter's proper retail name. EXIF data in public photos on Picasa reveals a device claiming to be the Droid RAZR HD. Considering we heard that the model we know as the Fighter could end ...

    We mobile mavens have been jabbering about battery life for years. Almost a decade ago, when dumbphones were the only phones around and HowardForums was still the best place to talk mobile tech, people were already pointing out that battery technology wasn't keeping pace with the rest of the industry's innovations. And it's true: one of the biggest speed brakes on innovation in the mobile space has been battery life. Because all the amazing features in the world don't matter if you're constantly tethered to a power outlet. In the past decade, various novel methods of augmenting the power ...

    Last week brought with it plenty of news regarding software updates for the Motorola Droid RAZR, but not in the way many of us were expecting. We came into the week armed with a rumor that the phone's Ice Cream Sandwich update might start going out on Wednesday; ultimately, that didn't end up happening. The internal Best Buy notification system which originally served as source of that rumor saw itself update to reflect some new delay. Then we heard about a coming soak test for a RAZR update, but one that was just a Gingerbread maintenance release, rather than ICS. Just what was going on ...

    If last week's Best Buy report concerning an imminent Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Motorola Droid RAZR got your hope up high, it's time to play the waiting game again (hopefully for just a little bit more). With the official wording missing, we're still left with rumors, leaks and reports. However, Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX users, while a little bit bitter because of ICS running late, can enjoy a soak test. The build is Version.6.12.181.XT912.Verizon.en.US and some welcome fixes. Check them out below: ALL DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX by MOTOROLA users Build: ...

    Late last week, we looked into a rumor that claimed Verizon subscribers would be seeing some Ice Cream Sandwich updates headed their way this week, with both the Motorola Droid RAZR and the HTC Rezound supposed to be making the journey to Android 4.0. Supposedly sourced to an internal Best Buy news posting, the rumor had the Rezound's update not landing until this Friday, but the RAZR's was on-tap for today. With no reports yet of any such updates going out OTA, nor any sign of an update on Verizon's site, it's starting to look like this one's busted. Some RAZR owners have since reached ...

    The Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX tries to be the answer to many users' questions regarding all day battery life. Everyone would like to not worry at all about being around a charger at one point in the day so the RAZR MAXX boasts a huge battery which should be enough for whatever you do from morning until evening. Now Motorola is preparing to bring the Droid RAZR MAXX to Europe and Middle East as the RAZR MAXX (following the RAZR which is already present on these markets). In are a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display, a huge battery plus the ...
