In July of 2004, Motorola debuted the Razr V3, one of the most iconic cellphones of all time. Exactly 10 years later, I shed my iPhone for a month to experience the world where apps don't exist and T9 reigns king. Maybe I did it for the nostalgia. Maybe I did it because I hate myself just a little bit. Either way, one…
The HTC Droid DNA and Motorola's Droid RAZR HD/RAZR MAXX HD are all sweet handsets. The DNA of course has an edge in terms of screen and display while the RAZRs' battery lives are unmatched in the Android ecosystem. Sure the HTC One will be frickin' awesome when it does eventually show up but "later this spring" is…
Even though we had crappier phones with crappier cameras, most of us still loved to document our not so crappy lives on our phones. New York artist Kyle M. F. Williams bought 44 Razr phones on eBay and found that "half of them still had texts, sexts, pics, and vids." He put them all together in a book.
You know how it takes OMG like foreverz to get the newest version of Android on your phone? Motorola has a new plan that'll get you its latest and greatest software long before you normally would. It's called Test Drive.
Android phones have been getting bigger and bigger, and that's not everyone's cup of tea. As Motorola said at unveiling of the Droid RAZR M, "Some people just want a smaller phone." Does this phone, designed to fill that niche, still deliver on performance?
The Motorola phones that have leaked before its announcement event next week have mostly been varying degrees of meh. Droid Razr somethin' or another who cares. How are they going to make some noise? How about a complete edge-to-edge screen, meaning the entire front of the device is the display? Whoa.
Is this the new phone Motorola is going to be showing off on September 5th? Maybe. The image above is taken from video tutorials that appeared on YouTube, showing what seems to be a new Motorola handset.
These were my dumb phones. In fact other than a short-lived Treo (returned!) this is every phone I owned prior to the first iPhone. I know, I know. I should have sent them to soldiers. But I didn't.
Remember the original RAZR? It was super-thin, super-overpriced, and commanded the gadget-lust of a whole generation. It often shattered when dropped—a sort of proto-iPhone. That was nearly a decade ago. So why is Verizon still using the promotional envelopes?
Public transit riders used to have to just settle for the route that Google Maps dictated—no discussion, no sharing of feelings, nothing. But, the newest iteration of Maps will tailor the route to your preferences while looking gorgeous on Ice Cream Sandwich.
Verizon has finally let a bunch of smartphone and tablet owners exhale, giving up the full list of current devices that will be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. There's 14 devices in all. See if yours made the cut.
I just copped a major feel on the new Motorola Droid 4 and the Droid RAZR MAXX. I'm going to cut right to the chase: they both carry on the traditions of their ancestors, but improve on them in ways that actually matter.
We really liked Motorola's Droid RAZR. It was crazy-thin, water-tight, and had a form factor we'd never seen. Too bad its battery life was sub-awesome. The RAZR MAXX is a little thicker, but it should keep you untethered from outlets 'till bedtime.
We've been expecting Motorola's Droid 4 for a while, but now official images and specs have leaked into the wild. And it looks a lot like a bigger version of the recent RAZR.
Remember when the Droid Bionic was the best Android phone on Verizon? Poor Bionic: A month and a half goes by and here comes Droid RAZR, which is similar to the Bionic, but better in virtually every way.
