Drivers are advised to stay alert,” and “Droid X designate #15 is near… Read more

DROID X arriving already?

It seems like it was just yesterday (it was) when we heard that Best Buy was giving out the white EVO 4G about a week early. Apparently, this is now a trend. Some lucky few who have ordered the DROID X are officially getting their device today, about a week early. It’s being said that @DroidLanding has something to do with this, and it’s just a viral… Read more

DROID X [Verizon] preview and initial impressions

Yesterday I received this DM on Twitter: “Have DROID X can you get here by 2 p.m.?”.  Needless to say, I was in my car and on the road as quickly as humanly possible. First Impressions: Usable – It has a 4.3″ screen, like the EVO.  However, the DROID X form factor seems to make it a little easier to use.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s still hard to… Read more

DROID X lands commercial spot UPDATE

I think it’s finally happening. We all knew that there would come a time in the cell phone industry, where because of leaks and competition, carriers and manufacturers would have to get the official word out on unreleased devices sooner than they would have liked. Even something as small as a 16 second teaser trailer is enough to hold some people off from… Read more

DROID DOES: Verizon Droid X “coming soon”

“Everything iDon’t, DROID does.” Remember that one? Of course you do, I mean, who could forget? When Verizon first launched the Moto Droid, it felt like the world started paying attention to the word Android. I will always stand by my theory that if Verizon never launched the Droid and the onslaught of advertising that followed, Android would be nowhere… Read more
