    Best Buy is really proving itself to be a font of rumors lately. Earlier today we looked at an email attributed to Best Buy which seemed to reveal the planned release date for the HTC One X on AT&T. Now we move from Windows Phone to Android-land, with a new source out of Best Buy suggesting that a few Verizon handsets are about to see the arrival of Ice Cream Sandwich next week. A little while back, we looked at a leaked ICS ROM that had become available for the HTC Rezound, showing progress since an earlier ROM that made it seem like the finished update was nearly ready-to-go. According ...

    Last month we asked the question, can a Motorola Droid RAZR be upgraded to a RAZR Maxx? The answer back then was "yes" with a big, fast asterisk noting the parts weren't readily accessible, one part couldn't be found, and the operation was somewhat delicate. Now, two out of three of those concerns are gone! The folks over at Cellphone Repair Shop have put the entire kit together for you, all you need to do is supply your Motorola Droid RAZR, a few tools (which you can buy from them, if need be), and US$109.95 plus shipping, and you're all set! If you're not sure you know how to do all the ...

    This time last week, we looked into a rumor that the Droid Fighter which had been mentioned in leaked Verizon roadmaps was actually a new large-screen RAZR variant. That seemed plausible enough, given how we had already seen a bunch of RAZR-alikes that Motorola had prepared for China. Today we get a look at another model that might be joining the RAZR family, as well as two mid-range Motorola Androids. Our new RAZR variant supposedly goes by the name "Blade", which is either a bad pun or a translation error – we're leaning towards the latter. Comparing it against the other Chinese RAZR ...

    A couple new smartphones for Verizon have been popping-up on leaked roadmaps lately, including the Droid Fighter. Much earlier, we looked at a list of HTC codenames for upcoming handsets, and saw the Fighter among them; could this Droid Fighter be related, or is the common name just a coincidence? Today, a picture of a phone purporting to be the Droid Fighter has been released, along with some basic information on the phone, only this time we're looking at a model manufactured by Motorola. Instead of HTC, the source behind the imagery says that it's Motorola that will be releasing the ...

    Motorola is really outdoing itself when it comes to transparency with its plans for delivering Ice Cream Sandwich updates to its lineup of existing Android smartphones and tablets. Granted, it doesn't always have useful information to share on every model, but we love having the official word on so many devices all in one place, so we know just where to check back frequently for the latest updates. Motorola just made some of those changes to its list, and it's looking like there might be some unfortunate, though not entirely unexpected, news for some of its users. If you've got a Motorola ...

    So far, news about which Android handsets will be making the journey to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and which will be left behind to stagnate has largely been coming from the manufacturers themselves. Some, like Motorola, have detailed support pages up outlining which models should be seeing updates, and when. Other are content to release snippets of their progress on the likes of Twitter and Facebook. Today, though, that news is coming from a carrier, with Verizon publishing a list of devices on its network that are slated to receive Ice Cream Sandwich. Verizon calls this a list of its ...

    If you bought a Motorola Droid RAZR and were disappointed when the RAZR Maxx, with it's MUCH larger battery, you might just be in luck! XDA-Developer wardo5757 has discovered that it's possible to replace the RAZR's battery with that from the RAZR Maxx, and essentially turn the former into the latter. Of course doing so will void your warranty, requires disassembling your phone, and you'll need the new battery a new back-plate and replacement port cover, but it can be done! Head over to this thread on XDA-Developers to find out how to upgrade your 1780mAh battery to a whopping 3300mAh ...

    Last week we heard about a new variant on the Motorola Droid RAZR that was set to arrive, and this time not just one with a larger battery. We learned that Verizon was going to start selling limited edition versions of the phone, both the original and the RAZR Maxx, as part of a numbered series and featuring a nice-looking red pattern on the phone's rear. The only bad news we had at time was that this offer would be exclusive to Verizon employees, so it seemed like you'd have to be friends with one or luck-out on eBay to score one of the handsets. Now, though, it's looking like Verizon ...

    From its strikingly thin construction, to its sleek Kevlar facade, Motorola's Droid RAZR makes a strong effort towards keeping smartphones stylish. If you like the general design of the phone, but were hoping for maybe a slightly bolder look, you might be interested in the news of a limited edition RAZR that's just leaked-out of Verizon. The big difference between a regular RAZR and the limited edition model is the new Kevlar back panel design, now heavily accented with Verizon red. The phone also gets a "Limited Edition" tag up front, and will be produced as an individually-numbered ...

    Hot on the heels of Verizon showing off the upcoming Motorola Droid 4 on its DroidDoes webpage, reports are coming in that February 10 will not only be the day we'll meet the Droid 4 in person but also the day Verizon will be kicking off some promotions. The Droid 4 will most likely go for $199.99 on a two-year contract but starting February 10 Verizon is kicking off its BoGo deal on the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX. We'll also reportedly see the carrier's double data promotion granting you 4GB of data for $30/month, applicable to all 4G LTE smartphone purchases. That's not it! With the ...

    The Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx has a huge 3300mAh battery which provides almost two days of juice under a heavy use case scenario. To get the bigger battery it will cost you a $100 premium plus 2mm of thickness when compared to the original Droid RAZR. Is it worth the premium? We've become so conditioned to managing battery life that we've adjusted our usage habits to accomodate the relatively poor battery life of most smartphones out there. We charge up each day (and in a lot of cases, more than once per day), we adjust sync settings to toll the battery less, we don't use live wallpaper, ...

    Happy happy joy joy, what do we have here? Users of the Sprint HTC EVO Shift 4G, T-Mobile myTouch 3G, Verizon Droid RAZR (plus RAZR MAXX) and AT&T Motorola Atrix 2 all have one thing in common: updates. Sprint's update for the HTC EVO Shift 4G is version 2.77.651.3 and brings a couple of bug fixes, software tweaks, security enhancements, and a new version of Peep, HTC's Twitter client. It is also advertised to improved battery life. The myTouch 3G on T-Mobile gets the FRK76C update which only has one thing listed in its changes: a certain Google security fix. This update will be pushed out ...

    The Droid RAZR Maxx is no different than the original Droid RAZR, except that it has a much bigger battery. How big is big? Nearly double the sizes at 3300mAh versus 1780mAh. What's more, this larger battery has marginally added to the thickness of the RAZR Maxx: it's 8.9mm thick instead of 7.1mm. Beyond the huge 3300mAh battery, the RAZR Maxx has a dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP CPU with 1GB RAM, 16GB ROM (plus there's a 16GB microSD card in the box), an 8MP camera on the back (capable of 1080p video) and a 2MP shooter up front. The display is still of the Super AMOLED variety at 4.3" and qHD ...

    OPMOSH stands for "Operation Make Ourselves Heard" and, if recent actions tried to remind Motorola about the promises it made regarding bootloader unlocks, the second iteration (#OPMOSH2) is not happy at all with the Motorola RAZR Developer Edition. People want "to let Moto know that this "Developer Edition" had better be available either as a trade for our devices, paying the difference, or not at all, since we all bought our devices in hopes for them to keep their word in the first place". The company recently announced the RAZR Developer Edition, your European Motorola RAZR but with an ...

    The road to unlocked bootloaders for Motorola wasn't as smooth as the road HTC decided to go down on, for example. Motorola promised to unlock bootloaders until late 2011 and OPMOSH seems to be kind enough to remind the company of its own promises. Motorola announced the availability of an unlockable version of the Motorola RAZR. The post which went live on the Motorola blog quickly disappeared but Droid-life managed to get a screen grab seen above. The unlock will be possible, according to the wording, through MOTODEV, a place where an unlockable developer device for the United States ...
