Stolen from droidlife.com ūüėČ

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 X running Android 2.2 gets a brief run-through, how-to install it yourself

A leaked version of the Droid X Froyo firmware is out and about. It has everything you would expect. It actually comes pre-installed with Flash version 10.1, it has the JIT built-in, which will make this phone run a little bit faster during CPU¬†intense¬†situations. Also the V8 engine will be built into the browser, which should let you see improved browsing speeds. BGR points out some minor UI differences, such as the main lock screen, but nothing too major. It’s Froyo and that is what’s important. Check out BGR’s brief walk-through of Froyo on the Droid X after the break… Read more of this post

Motorola Droid X screen issue confirmed, Verizon says it is not widespread

Early this week there were reports of screen issues cropping up on the new Motorola Droid X. It looks like some Droid X are getting funny blotches on either the lower half or sometimes even the entire screen. Motorola is¬†referring¬†to this as “flickering or banding” of the screen. The problem seemed to be fairly well known according to support forums, but Verizon said the issue is not widespread and is being corrected. Here is a quote from Verizon and Motorola… Read more of this post

Motorola takes on Apple, “says you have a voice and you deserve to be heard”

Img via Gizmodo

Motorola loves to poke the beehive that is Apple. They started it back with their iDon’t ads before the original Droid came out. Now it seems they already have some words for those iPhone 4 users who are having antenna issues. Motorola put out an ad in the NYTimes that takes a clear shot at Apple. Here is the quote from the ad: Read more of this post

Motorola Droid 2 spotted on camera

The Motorola Droid 2 is the successor to the Droid 1 obviously, but it looks to be a fairly minor bump. The internals everything is fine and dandy. The Droid 2 is reportedly running on 512MB of RAM, an updated 1Ghz OMAP 3630, and a revamped keyboard. Aside from that we aren’t seeing any huge differences. The design is relatively similar, the camera is the same, and the screen is the same. Definitely a worthy purchase if you haven’t signed a contract for the older Droid, however it is not enough to warrant an upgrade from the original Droid. There may be some surprises in store for us come June 23rd though, so hang tight.

Check out the video of the hardware after the break! Read more of this post

Droid X does higher resolution than Apple’s new retina display? [Update -Verizon says no]

Today Verizon’s Droid X teaser site went live. This is exciting for a number of reasons. Here is why. Back in November of 2009, Motorola introduced the 854×480 screen. It was the first fully capable smartphone that had everything the iPhone, G1, and/or Palm Pre had, as well as a beautiful high-resolution display. At the time everyone was using 480×320 resolution screens. Shortly after you started seeing tons of Android phones coming out with high-resolution displays. The question then became, will Apple finally bump up its resolution on the next generation iPhone? Well, June 7th came and they blew everyone’s mind. They didn’t just catch up to Android’s new standard resolution, they passed it. The iPhone 4 will have a stunning 960×640 resolution screen. The question now is. How long is it going to take one of the many manufacturers to catch up to Apple’s new high? Well according to Verizon, it will happen the day before the actual iPhone goes on sale. According to Verizon’s brand new teaser page, the new Droid X from Motorola is going to have a 720p screen. Yes you heard that correct, 720p! True high-definition resolution on a touchscreen phone. It seems so hard to believe and I feel skeptical, but its hard to disbelieve if Verizon has it on their main teaser page. Look at the imagine above if you too are struggling to believe it. Apple has been out done just a day before their phone is released. Will this be the new standard on Android handsets? Read more of this post

Droid X to be unveiled next week, on sale July 19th?

After seeing leaked photo after leaked photo and even seeing the start-up animation, they aren’t done. They want to finish out the rumor mill by giving us an announcement time frame as well as an exact release date. Read more of this post
