So the Motorola DROID was the slab of rock that turned into a beautiful scuplture, forever stamping Android into the realm of successful smartphones, forever .This time, Motorola has challenged itself, and released the DROID 2. And honestly, it’s set on the right path:
The overall rounded body gives better contour and feel.
The speed offered by the new 1 GHz processor is easily recognizable.
The MOTOBLUR UI seen on the DROID X with Android 2.2 is very cool.
The slide-out QWERTY has the same feel as on the Droid 1 — except a trillion times more practical and better.
It still remains uber-geek, and uber-cool, even for those new to technology.
According to the Verizon rep (who is now an official ninja for LaptopMemo now) besides some VZW secrets I’ll share with all of you later this week, the DROID 2 has been selling. As he said “people are buying it a lot”. Of course that’s not including my favorite thing – numbers, but he’s a Verizon ninja, so let’s take his word for it. Check out the gallery below for shots of the DROID 2!
So these are the Nikon D3100 DSLR specs? Holy jebus. See below, lads:
A 14 MP CMOS Sensor (nice!)
3 inch Display
100 – 12800 ISO (!)
Full HD Video (1920 x 1080)
A price of 650 € (not bad)
D-did you see that ISO rating, and the megapixels this thing can produce.? Y-yes sir! I’ll take one — scratch that, two please! Nikon, stop damning us with secrets and leaks and just release the D3100 next week already!
So what is Chrome to Phone you ask? Let’s say you were reading an article…like this one perhaps, and you needed to log off your PC or Mac, to take a jog?
Just hit the Chrome to Phone button extension in Chrome, and your Android phone starts loading the page in seconds. In order for it to work you have to install Chrome to Phone to an Android 2.2 Froyo device from the Android Market, then install the same extension, but from the Chrome Extensions gallery. Voila, Chrome to Phone baby!
The highest-end Android slider WILL be $250 (after $100 rebate) on a 2-year contract with Sprint. Reminder of the specs:
Quickie specs: 1GHz Samsung Cortex A8 processor, 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive display, Android 2.1 (not surprising that it doesn’t have 2.2 yet), 3G/4G hotspot, 5-megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash, 720p video recording, front-facing camera for video chat, Samsung’s AllShare and Social Hub features, 3.5mm headset, the normal junk Sprint apps, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, compass, six-axis motion sensor and an included 16GB microSD card for storage.
And yes it’s still a Galaxy S phone. And yes, it supports WiMAX. And yes, it is freakin‘ epic.
DROID-Life is the name. It’s run by Kellex (me and him have had our share of conversations regarding, of course, Android in particular). Apparently, he’s a lucky sap, and he’s posted a YouTube video of the DROID 2 in action. In other words, his grimy paws got to touch the DROID 2. How I envy this fellow. Video after the break.
So, an R2-D2 Android phone? Actually a Motorola DROID 2, with Froyo and Flash 10.1 and everything else to die for (not literally, mind you dudes). So it’s also come to the realization that the photo is legit, and the limited edition R2-D2 DROID 2 will be sold on September 30th, online from Verizon.
And by the way, this is the Droid you’re looking for.
So the time has finally come for a new entry in the endless world of Twitter apps for Android, eh? Tweetdeck for Android has had tons of user requests for an official release, and today the leaked official beta (or alpha build?) is available as an .apk file to upload to your Android handset. In this review, I’m using an original Motorola DROID running Android 2.2 FroYo. Read on to figure out what’s good (and not so good), about this very early build of Tweetdeck for Android.
In a new press release by PR manager of the Dell Streak, the 5″ Gorilla glass display, 5 megapixel camera dual LED flash, VGA front-facing, 3G/Bluetooth/Wi-FI, Android 1.6 tablet due on AT&T August 13th will be sold for $300 (on AT&T contract) and $550 without.
Dell’s PR agents also mentioned that “We will ship [the] Streak to customers in the US with Android 1.6 and will offer an over-the-air upgrade to Android 2.2 later this year.”
Looks good if you ask me. Expect an unboxing (this week!), video commentary, and full review later next week of Dell’s Streak!
So with the Motorola DROID 2 on the road to an official launch, it would be time for the ever-so-not-happy presenter in the above Adobe video demoing Flash 10.1, the DROID 2. Fun fact: DROID 2 is the first Android handset to ship with Flash 10.1, out-of-the box.
