The last few weeks have been jam-packed with announcements from almost every major mobile tech player you can think of. We were introduced to new RAZRs from Motorola, the first Windows 8 phones from Nokia, a new iPhone, and new Kindles. This week, the fun isn’t stopping as Motorola and Intel will take the stage in London tomorrow to unveil their first product. Then LG and Qualcomm will get on stage together in NYC followed by HTC a day later. The back-to-school Fall blast is officially underway, and we couldn’t be more excited.
So what better way to keep things rolling than with the 5th edition of our DL Q&A sessions? For those new to this feature, think of it as your opportunity to ask the DL staff anything that comes to mind. It could be about all of the smartphone madness that we have covered over the last couple of weeks, what we are expecting from this week, or what we had for dinner last night. It’s an open atmosphere.
At the end of the week, we’ll grab a handful of questions and let the team take to answering them. Ready? Drop in the comments and let us know what’s on your mind.
It’s Friday and you know what that means – it’s time to answer our reader-submitted questions! This week, many of you decided to go a more personal route and we would love nothing more than for all of you to get a greater sense of who we are as individuals. We even decided to throw in a few pictures of our “offices.” Thanks for the great questions, everybody. Let’s do this! (more…)
With Wozniak’s recent confession that the HTC Thunderbolt was one of the worst purchases he’s ever made, we’re out to find the same thing from all of you. With a wide variety of tech goodies out there, it’s quite possible to have purchased a flop that you completely regret. Was it a computer, camera, phone, tablet?
As for us, Kellex still shakes his head at the purchase of a Motorola XOOM LTE – “No updates ever, it weighs a ton, has an awful screen, and I have probably used it for all of 8 hours total.” As for me, I regret buying an old $80 PDA back when I was in eighth grade that I had absolutely no use for. I think I got it just to look cool. Mission failed.
What’s the worst gadget you’ve ever purchased?
It’s been far too long since our last Q&A session, so here we are. Since our last entry, we’ve seen pigs fly (Motorola starting to unlock bootloaders), Verizon’s Galaxy S3 had its bootloader unlocked, and tons of other Android awesomeness.
If you aren’t familiar with our Q&A sessions, think of them as your opportunity to ask the Droid Life staff anything. How we’ve been keeping cool in this summer heat, what we’re hoping to see at CES 2013, or even ask us to kindly show off more pictures/video of our beloved pets. As always, please feel free to shoot your Android questions in too. We love helping out our readers.
Check back on Friday to see if your question gets answered.
Here is the fourth installment of our Q&A sessions. On Monday, we asked you all to submit your questions for the DL team and as usual, you came through in a big way. Who would have thought that the color of this site would be a talking point? Thanks for the great questions, everybody. Let’s get to it. (more…)
We took a few weeks off from our bi-weekly Q&A sessions, but are back to finish out the month of July. Since our last special I/O edition, we have seen the Nexus 7 arrive to many customers, Jelly Bean rollout to every Nexus device other than the Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus, dealt with locked bootloaders on the Galaxy S3, and more. It’s been busy, to say the least, so let’s talk about it all.
If you aren’t familiar with our Q&A sessions, think of them as your opportunity to ask the Droid Life staff anything. Ask us about the importance of unlockable bootloaders, how we feel about the Nexus 7 a couple of weeks in, or why nothing will be better than multiple Nexus phones this winter. You can even go semi-personal if you want. We are human beings after all and like food, swanky cocktails, music and traveling. Anything in particular you were curious about?
We are a week removed from Google I/O 2012, can you believe it? A full week of Jelly Bean tips and tricks, Nexus 7 overviews, and Nexus Q confusion is officially behind us. So let’s talk about in this special edition Q&A session that focused on the magic that went down 9 days ago. We’ll talk about about those three items, but also a Nexus 10, if Train was any good in person, and when the rest of you will see the update to Android 4.1. (more…)
As most of you know, we spent all of last week in San Francisco, attending Google I/O. We haven’t had a chance to fully reflect on it yet, so since this happens to be one of our Q&A session weeks, we thought you could all help us do that. Rather than the normal Android chatter that these sessions tend to focus on, this week it will be all about the I/O experience, our thoughts, and what we did while we were there. So as usual, you can ask us whatever you’d like, but try to make it somewhat relevant to last week’s fun. You can ask for our opinions on the Nexus 7, Jelly Bean, or the Q if you’d like. You can quiz us on what sights we saw or restaurants we frequented. Have at it in the comments below.
