Milestone 3 XT883 from Motorola heads to China Telecom

Motorola has announced that the Milestone 3 will be headed to China Telecom. The Milestone 3 is the latest version of the smartphone we know as the Droid 3 here in the states.

The Milestone 3 is hitting China though with China Unicom.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2 hands-on

Motorola's first-gen XOOM launched with plenty of promise at the beginning of the year, but Honeycomb - and some expensive data plans from Verizon - left the Android alternative to the iPad looking less than appealing. Now Motorola's second attempt at the segment, the XYBOARD 10.1 and XYBOARD 8.2, have arrived, fresh to the SlashGear test bench with new angular styling, faster processors and some special features that might at least give new tablet shoppers an idea what exactly to use big-screen slates for. Read on for our first impressions.

Motorola Changes Name, Announces New Board of Directors [UPDATE: Split in Two!]

Generally it's pretty large news when your company decides to change its name, yes? Maybe not so much when it's such a tiny one - or is it? Announced today, but effective January 4th, 2011, Motorola, Inc. will change its name to Motorola Solutions, Inc. and will change its ticker symbol on the New York Stock Exchange from MOT to MSI. Additionally, they'll switch over to a brand new board of directors (listed below) which includes election of Greg Brown to the "additional role" of chairman (effective May 2011) plus Dave Dorman's transition to lead independent director.

Motorola confirm locked DROID 2 and DROID X bootloaders

Motorola confirm locked DROID 2 and DROID X bootloaders

Hacking the Motorola DROID X and DROID 2 may be a significantly tougher prospect, thanks to the confirmation that the company will be locking the bootloaders of their future Android handsets.  The bootloader - which is used to install custom ROMs that add new, unofficial functionality or streamline the Android user-experience - will be secured so as to prevent non-Motorola ROMs being loaded, the company says, explaining that the open bootloader on the DROID was the exception rather than the rule.

Motorola: 20 new Android phones by end of 2010 [Updated]

Motorola: 20 new Android phones by end of 2010 [Updated]

Motorola has confirmed its plans to launch a full twenty Android based smartphones this year, with a range of devices running MOTOBLUR like the FLIPOUT and some packing hardware QWERTY keyboards.  According to Tom Satchwell, director of marketing for Motorola's mobile devices business, not all of the new devices will necessarily arrive in every region or even launch with carrier support.  For that, Satchwell blames Motorola's ramping-up of Android support - something the company basically flipped to late last year - being faster than the general product cycle the carriers like to stick to.

Update: Motorola have been in touch to clarify Satchwell's comments.  It turns out that, rather than 20 new phones being released in 2010 alone, he meant there will be - by the end of the year - a total of 20 different Motorola Android devices since the company's first models in 2009.

Motorola XT720 hands-on [Video]

Motorola XT720 hands-on [Video]

It takes a brave company - some might cruelly say foolish - to launch a touchscreen-centric smartphone on the same day that the next-gen iPhone is expected to debut, but Motorola are obviously confident enough in the new Motorola XT720 that they're willing to take on Cupertino. Based on the MOTOROI handset that launched a few months back in Korea, the XT720 could be summed up as a Motorola DROID without the QWERTY keyboard (and just 10.9mm thick as a result), though there's also an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with Xenon flash to sweeten the deal.
