on Wednesday, September 18th, 2013

I’m up to my eyeballs in phones right now because Verizon has sent me not one, not two, but three of Motorola’s latest Android smartphones to try out for a few days. Yeah, I know it’s a rough life, but someone has to live it I have the Moto X, DROID Ultra and the DROIDRead More…

Posted in: Android related, News

Verizon announced a new DROID RAZR that is available on January 26th. I have often commented that I wished manufacturers would stop with the thin obsession, and focus on battery life, and they finally listened to me. OK, so probably not to me, but still, I like this change. The RAZR MAXX is only 8.99Read More…

The Motorola Droid has been a very popular Android based smartphone for Verizon. It’s been out for close to a year, so of course it’s time for an update. The Droid 2 takes all the goodness that was packed into the original version, but kicks it up a notch to make it a worthy choiceRead More…


Droid X: Entering Text and Browsing

on Friday, July 16th, 2010

I spent a lot of time experimenting with new ways to enter information in the Droid X. The voice recognition integrated into Android continues to improve, and the Droid X comes with Swype installed.

We ask a lot more out of our smartphones anymore. It’s not enough to make phone calls, access the web, and receive text messages. We want them to be our communications hub.

First off, Multimedia Station seems a bit off for this device. This is a dock for your Droid phone. It has some nice adds, but does not include any speakers, or even audio out, it is a dock.

I had no issues with my Droid battery cover for the two weeks I used it, but I have heard some complaints that the cover can fall off. I know another reviewer that had no problem with her review unit, but after purchasing she had issues with the new one. So it probably is dependentRead More…
