Verizon has rolled out its Black Friday deals early this morning with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 looking like the best of the lot. Normally priced at $299 on-contract, Verizon has slashed the price to $199 on-contract for the day or $599 at full retail. If the Note 3 wasn’t on your radar, there are some other deals here and there that may be worth a look. (more…)
Just last night, we caught our first glimpse at the DROID Mini in White, making its way to Verizon right in time for the holiday season. This morning, @evleaks posted a press render of the DROID ULTRA in White, also en route to Verizon. Much like the Mini in White, nothing is different about this phone – same 720p display, 10MP camera, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, etc. (more…)
The best Twitter account for leaked devices, @evleaks, is at it again. Recently posted to the account is a photo of the DROID Mini in White, headed for Verizon’s network. It appears to be the same ol’ Mini, just featuring an all white body. Still rocks the same 4.3″ 720p display, Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, 2,000mAh battery, and 10MP back-facing shooter. (more…)
Motorola is trying its best to win you over, “you” being the tinkerer that you are. Having deployed a Developer Edition program for many of their devices recently, there were a couple of items that owners of participating devices requested to see changed; one being a way to keep warranties intact, and another would be to see factory software images to help return phones back to their out-of-the-box state. Motorola is addressing both of these issues starting today.
DROID XYBOARD 10.1 owners, if you still exist, you should be receiving Android 4.1.2 “Jelly Bean” at any moment thanks to Verizon and Motorola. After going months and months without word on the update, Motorola finally committed to releasing Jelly Bean to the neglected VZW tablet, they just gave us no indication as to when that might happen. Randomly tonight, a reader of ours received it. (more…)
When Android 4.4 Kit Kat was originally announced 3 weeks back, Motorola confirmed that the Moto X and new DROID family would all see the update fairly quickly. What we weren’t sure about was whether or not last year’s DROID family would see the same joy – that would be the DROID RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, and RAZR M. According to recently updated Motorola update support pages, all three will indeed see the update to Android 4.4. (more…)
The update that should improve the camera performance and squash a bunch of bugs for the DROID MAXX, ULTRA, and Mini – which Verizon detailed earlier this week - is now rolling out to all owners of these phones. Previously, only members of the soak test for each were receiving the update, but as of early this morning, the update has been made widely available. (more…)
