This Week in the Life of DROID: 8/17/2012

Well, in comparison to Motorola’s release of a bootloader unlocking tool, all of this week’s other news seems sort of lacking. We had some courtroom fun in the Samsung vs. Apple case, DROID Charge and DROID 4 seeing updates, and gift cards are finally coming to Google Play. Here are the highlights in case you missed anything.

Have a fantastic weekend, everybody!

    I’d think this week was pretty eventful. Specially as far as bootloaders. Moto unlocking them and getting the leaked S3 insecure bootloader.

    Also, I’m still a bit wary of that Moto tool. Its only for carriers who support it. Verizon buys like 75% of Moto phones. So its not a huge jump considering there was already unlocked devices (Xoom, Atrix, D1) that Moto had released. A step in the right direction; but they are still bending to carrier will (course, so is Sammy… sort-of)

    Anyone having issues with the DL App? I’m getting constant full screen ads. I can’t even read an article without the ad popping up numerous times on the same page….

      We’re figuring out to do with that thing. It’s pretty bad. Until it’s fixed or we get a new one, I would suggest to just use the mobile site. :)

    Pretty excited about the Moto news. I think a RAZR HD might put my Nexus into early retirement.
