The Marvelous Mytosis of Motorola is complete!

After an eternity in the electronics field (some 80 years), Motorola has successfully completed the split into two seperately-traded companies, Motorola Mobility, Inc. and Motorola Solutions, Inc. respectively.  The split comes as a result of the company’s desire to more accurately satisfy the growing demands of the ever-changing consumer and business technology markets.  The company goes on to state that it was partially motivated to split by the desire to offer investors more pointed investment markets, instead of a single, convoluted entity.  It’s going to be interesting to see where Motorola Mobility decides to take the DROID brand, and wether or not they intent to re-invent existing Motorola mobile product lines.  Hit the link for more information on the two individual entities.

[Daily duh] FL Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott calls Motorola Droid a Blackberry and then an iPad

When you have people trying to run for governor of a state and they don’t even know what kind of technology another person is using, let me tell you folks, that’s pretty damn scary to me. But I have to say that my favorite part in this debate is the actual break, where Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott, mistakes a Motorola Droid for a Blackberry, and then later an iPad.

So we can get notes? We can have people that work for us come give us messages? Watch…watch. Right there with a Blackberry.

First Alex, you say you always follow the rules,” he said. “The rule was no one was supposed to give us messages during the break, and your campaign did with an iPad or an iPod.

HOLY Jesus! Droid 2 Overclocked To 2.5GHz! Droid X at 2GHz!

Stolen from droidlife.com 😉

You read right.  According to Droidlife, Matt4542 and Joe of Team DeFuse are hard at work making these speeds possible via their custom cooked rom, “Fission”.  I’ve yet to see any official benchmarking at these speeds, so color me skeptical.  Hit the link for information on how you too can get your little phone clocked to hell and back.

Droid R2-D2 exposed

When Verizon announced the Droid 2 earlier this week, they also mentioned there would be a special R2-D2 edition of the phone, but on the press release they show no pictures of it! People were wondering what happened but by coincidence there is a Star Wars convention that started yesterday, so will they show more to all the Star War fans? The official website for the R2-D2 Droid is still not updated with any picture but if you look at the picture above, you can see that R2-D2 Droid is indeed there, hidden in the background. The Droid 2 goes on sale today in stores for those who did not pre-order before, anyone holding out for a R2-D2 one?

The original Motorola Droid getting Froyo 2.2 next week

Boy have we been down this road before huh? It looks like this is going to be attempt number 1 for Verizon and Motorola to get Android’s latest version (2.2) on the Motorola Droid. Back when we were all waiting for 2.1 there were so many teases about the update being just around the corner and it was delayed numerous times. Let’s hope this time Verizon gets it right. According to a confirmation email sent to http://www.androidcentral.com/original-droid-getting-android-22-next-week from Motorola, the Motorola Droid will be getting Android 2.2 next week. Get your fingers ready to push that update button guys. We will let you know as soon as we find out if this is actually happening and when the delay will be. -.-

Droid 2 user manual leaked, includes Froyo and Motorola’s updated ‘blur’

We have already learned so much about the upcoming Droid 2. We saw some leaked specs which show it using the same OMAP 3600 series processor as the Droid X, 5MP Camera (which hopefully is 8MP by launch), and a new and improved slide out keyboard. The fun doesn’t stop there. A leaked user guide shows that the Motorola Droid 2 will have the same Motoblur style interface you find on the Droid X and it will be runnin Froyo at launch. The good news is that it will have Android 2.2 and that it seems like the launch is getting close. The bad news is that it looks like there won’t be any more stock Android devices for sale anymore. The last three(G1, Droid 1, and Nexus One) are either no longer for sale or will probably be updated to this new Motoblur. I don’t hate it, but some do. Now if we could just get the Droid 2 and X on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile then life would be good.

Download the full manual here.
