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 [...]

Droid RAZR MAXX Announced


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 8.99 [...]

Julie got the first look at the Xoom, and did a couple of excellent posts on it including a First Looks and the full review. If you are wanting the complete run down on the tablet I highly recommend these posts. And, as always on The Gadgeteer, the comments are full of great additions as [...]

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 choice [...]

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. I had not tried it before, but was encouraged by Craig to give it a shot when we were comparing the [...]

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. Android has become very adept at this, and will get even better with Froyo (2.2), but how does the Droid X stack up [...]

My birthday came a little early this year as I received the Droid X for review. I only get to keep it for a week, but I may be getting my own soon. This is essentially Verizon's answer to the EVO. It has similar specs but doesn't have the front-facing camera. As we have done [...]

I was able to talk the Verizon PR representative into letting me review two of the accessories for the Droid as a ploy to keep the it a little longer, I mean, as a nice companion to the series of reviews on the Droid. In this post I will look at the Car Mount, and [...]

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. What's in the Box: Manual AC Adaptor USB Cable Cradle The dock is very attractive, and since [...]

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 dependent [...]

Finally, the review. I have spent just over a week with this app phone, and I have really enjoyed it. I am a current G1 user, so I came to the phone already familiar with the Android OS. It was interesting to talk with a number of folks who are new to Android to get [...]
