DROID TURBO: Everything You Need to Know

The DROID TURBO will officially be unveiled on October 28 by Motorola and Verizon. We know that because that’s what Verizon has told us through their DroidDoes.com site. We know what the phone looks like, thanks to an image (accidentally?) posted through @DroidLanding that was quickly deleted. We were pretty sure we also knew most of the specs after seeing the user manual for the device surface at the end of last week, along with a tip about the battery size. We know a lot about the DROID TURBO already. Well, we are hear to tell you the rest.

DroidDoes.com is Back and With a Countdown to the Launch of the DROID TURBO

The DROID TURBO has a launch date – October 28. According to Verizon’s Droid Does website that just went live with a new countdown, we have 14 days and 9 hours or so before “all will be revealed.” If you need help with the math, that actually puts us at 12:00PM Eastern October 28, or 9:00AM Pacific. You have two weeks of waiting left.  (more…)

DROID TURBO Will Have a 3,900mAh Battery

An image in a listing posted up at TaoBao, a Chinese shopping website like eBay or Amazon, just gave us the official size of the battery in the yet-be-announced-but-all-sorts-of-leaked DROID TURBO. We pointed out through an FCC listing that the battery in the device fell under model number EQ40, which we assumed meant it would be large like last year’s DROID MAXX, a device that used a 3,500mAh battery under the model number EU40.

Assuming this listing is correct and this is the EQ40 that will be featured in the DROID TURBO, you are looking at a device with a 3,900mAh battery. That, my friends, is huge. With a battery that size, you should have no trouble getting through two days of use.  (more…)

Eric Schmidt Says He Currently Uses the “Motorola RAZR X,” What?

In an interview with The Canadian Press to promote his new book about Google and to announce a $1.5 million grant to Actua, Google’s Eric Schmidt talked through a number of wide ranging topics. Of course, we tend to focus on the mobile or Android-related stuff that Big “E” mentions from time to time, something he graced us with yet again. The interviewer asked Schmidt what his current phone was because Canadians like to talk about Blackberry still, and Schmidt has been a fan of Blackberry for years. While Eric admitted that he still carries around a Blackberry, he noted that his current phone is the “Motorola Razr X.”

Umm, what?  (more…)
