Motorola Droid

I have to say the specs look good:

Arm® Cortex™ A8 processor 550 mHz

16 GB microSD pre-installed; supports up to 32 GB microSD expandable

Proximity, ambient light and eCompass

3.7″; WVGA (480 x 854 pixels); 16:9 widescreen

6 oz.; 169 g

2.4 x 4.6 x .5 in.; 60.00 x 115.80 x 13.70 mm

The only drawback for me is: 1. It’s a Motorola, 2. It’s very “eh” looking

I’ll have to wait to see it in action before giving my final opinion.

Motorola Calgary, Not the Droid Brings Android to Verizon

With all the hype surrounding Motorola’s resurgence into the smartphone world with the upcoming Droid, it’s easy to see why there might not be much enthusiasm for their other Android powered phone, the still code-named, Calgary.

While the Droid lacks MOTOBLUR or BLUR, the Calgary apparently will have it. If you don’t know what that is, go here. If you do a lot of social networking, this is a feature you definitely might want to look into. Other than that, it appears that this will be a lower-end model phone for those who don’t want to hand over their hard earned cash for the Droid.

Not a bad idea at all, especially when you throw in the features.

A 3 mega-pixel camera is a step down but is pretty standard, it also features three touch-sensitive Android buttons right on the display, an optical pad which is pretty nifty, a 3.5mm headset jack, a QWERTY keyboard and several other features to look forward to.

So if you don’t want to get the fancy smartphones, and you are one of those people that uses it to call people and maybe text, the Calgary looks like your best bet. That is, if you want Android and you use Verizon.

Hopefully Motorola releasing 80% of their upcoming devices running Android assists in their making a nice comeback.

Motorola Hopes Android is Their Savior

Motorola to release 80 per cent of 2010 portfolio on Google Android platform, with UK version of Droid expected on Vodafone before Christmas and further Android handsets in new year

Motorola has announced an aggressive Android rollout strategy, claiming 80 per cent of all its handsets launched in 2010 will be based on the platform.

Its first Android offering, and major device release in nearly a year, the Dext, was released exclusively on Orange in the UK last month. The device has been named Cliq for the US market.

Motorola shares rose more than eight per cent on Monday as investors anticipated the success of the manufacturer’s second Android phone, the Droid, launched in the US on Verizon Wireless.

Verizon has marketed the handset as being superior to the iPhone in terms of its product specification.

The UK version of the Droid, which has the working title ‘Sholes’, is expected on Vodafone before Christmas.

The Droid features a touchscreen and QWERTY slider, five megapixel camera and flash. It has been trailed already in the US with an Apple iPhone-baiting advertisement.

A tablet version of the Droid is also expected next year, also running on the Android platform and featuring an eight-megapixel camera.

Other Android devices from Motorola, including the ‘Motus’ and ‘Zeppelin’, are due in the new year, across various price points.

Motorola UK country manager for mobile devices Fraser King told a Data Select dealer conference this month: “Our portfolio for the next 12 months and strategy is all about Android.

“80 per cent of the products we launch next year will all be based on the Android platform and our vision is to take what we are doing with Android and social networking and social connectivity and drive it down in to the masses and capitalise on trends we are seeing in the mobile market.”
