New Moto DROID Froyo build leaked

The guys at Droid Life have struck again, and this time it’s not an upcoming Motorola device leak; It’s a new Froyo build for the Moto DROID. So far, everything we have been hearing about FRF84B (as it is known) is good. If you’ve been running test versions of Froyo on your DROID, why not let us know the differences (if any) you may notice? You can download… Read more

Droid powered Rubik’s Cube machine

I have a confession to make. I have never solved a Rubik’s Cube. Granted, I was born a little late to have lived through the Cubes most famous years, but still. David Gilday from ARM not only built a machine that can solve a Rubik’s Cube in 24.02 seconds, it does so powered by a Motorola Droid. And the machine is built out of freakin’ Legos. How cool is… Read more

FiOS Remote Control App

Motorola Droid and HTC Imagio users that rely on FiOS via Verizon for their television service officially have a new app to play with, a remote control. By using FiOS wifi you can tether you phone to your receiver and use it as a universal remote or turn your TV into a handy dandy picture viewer. But wait, there’s more! You can also import a favorite… Read more

Learn the Droid before you order

A couple of sites have posted a PDF Motorola Droid users’ guide. Check a snap from Engadget below, and head over to Phandroid to download the file. You didn’t think I’d just link to the file without a source, did you? That’s not how I work…. Read more

Droid Demo

Is this video all over the place right now? I’m so busy working on content lately that I haven’t had a chance to check out everyone else’s. I can see 303 views at YouTube with 44 ratings, which probably means the video is getting hammered faster than YouTube can count. I figure it’s worth posting anyway. Here’s a Droid demo by VZW marketing consultant:… Read more

DROID is $299, then you get a debit card

You know I love some good Android hype, and a phone as slick as the Droid (it really doesn’t get its own name in the series?) is about as good a hype generator as anyone can expect at this point. Still, I’ve found something to complain about. No, I’m not going to insult the grid-style QWERTY. I’m back to rebate shenanigans. A while back, in a post over at… Read more

DROID Does Times Square

Well, it sounds better than Droid Does Dallas, that’s for sure. And BGR is reporting that the campaign will be a first-of-its-kind interactive experience. Folks will apparently be able to control the NASDAQ and Reuters signs with voice commands? Seriously? How much does that cost? If it were quiet right now, I’d say that silence was of the “before the… Read more

Android 2.0 Eclair photodump!

Well, BGR teased us yesterday with a video of the first Verizon Android phone, Droid, booting up along with the tantalizing promise that there was more to follow. And here is part one of that promise delivered; a walk-through of Android 2.0, complete with screenshots. Among the leak is evidence of a universal inbox, Maps 4.0, an app for simple phone… Read more
