Motorola US Android 4.0 upgrades unlikely until Q3 2012

Motorola US Android 4.0 upgrades unlikely until Q3 2012

Motorola's Ice Cream Sandwich updates for existing devices won't reach US phones and tablets until sometime in Q3 2012, the company has confirmed, with Android 4.0 still mired in planning and evaluation for most eligible models. The DROID RAZR, RAZR MAXX, DROID 4, BIONIC, XYBOARD 8.2 and 10.1, and XOOM WiFI + 3G/4G are all in line for Ice Cream Sandwich, but there's likely to be plenty of competition running Android 4.0 natively by the time the new software arrives.

Motorola DROID 4 vs DROID RAZR MAXX vs entire Verizon Android lineup

If you head to a Verizon Wireless store today looking to purchase an Android smartphone, you're very likely going to be inundated by offers to purchase Verizon's own unique DROID line.

Tablets: an Android 2011 Retrospective

Tablets: an Android 2011 Retrospective

When the year 2011 is looked back upon by the Google historians, they'll mark it as the first time they officially made an effort to bring the Android platform to devices with displays larger than handheld smartphones - what we saw, as a result, was everything from the XOOM to the ASUS Transformer Prime. The folks at Google created a version of their mobile operating system Android titled Honeycomb and numbered version 3.0. This operating system began its life in the wild on the Motorola XOOM, a 10.1-inch tablet that by the end of the year would be replaced by the XYBOARD, a tablet which physically in weight and thickness to the iPad 2 - the dominant force in the tablet space throughout the vast majority of this past year.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Verizon Galaxy Nexus Review

Here in the LTE version of the newest Google hero phone, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (also known as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE) has not only the unique claim to running Google's newest mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich first, it's also connected to the fastest network in the states, and best of all: you can go to your corner Verizon store and purchase one, unlike the international edition. All that said, you've really got the same device only ever so slightly modified for this particular carrier: Google's vanilla hero phone remains nearly as pure as its first release internationally. What you're going to get here is another perspective on the Galaxy Nexus in general, how ICS handles our day to day, and what it means to own the LTE version of this device here in the USA.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD Accessories Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD Accessories Review

Color us surprised when we received a box full of Android-oriented Motorola accessories made for the DROID XYBOARD just days after the release of said device and our review of the 10.1-inch version of it - but don't color us dismissive - while we're already basically decided on the fate of both versions of these tablets for now, their accessories are another story. Everything from a leathery encapsulating case and keyboard to the most versatile HD dock Motorola has ever released for smart devices, this is the box of Verizon-carried official bits you can also purchase when you pick up one or both of the tablets.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 8.2 Review

This week we've seen two Motorola tablets, both of them with essentially the same name DROID XYBOARD, this the smaller of the two at 8.2-inches in screen size. While the 10.1-inch display sized iteration costs a bit more and does afford you a bit more screen real-estate, what you're about to see is an account that'll let you know how little you're missing when you go with the slightly more convenient sized 8.2. That and we've got a couple of accessories to peek at as well. Also note that if you're looking for the 10.1-inch version, you've only to check out the timeline after the second paragraph to head on down the rabbit hole.

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

Motorola DROID XYBOARD 10.1 Review

When it comes to tablet warfare, Motorola seemed to get out in the open with a weapon of mass excellence with the XOOM pretty early, it being the first to run Android 3.0 Honeycomb, the first Android made specifically for the tablet form factor - now they've come back with the XOOM 2 aka the DROID XYBOARD and we're not so sure it's the same ground-breaking situation. What we've got here instead is certainly a solid package, this XYBOARD 10.1 making some improvements over the original XOOM, especially in form if you were one of the many people who said the XOOM was a hunk of metal with no style, (note: I was not one of those people, I still think the XOOM looks pretty awesome for the workhorse that it is,) and with LTE right out of the box, the XYBOARD provides the promise that the original XOOM took much MUCH to long to deliver on: 4G LTE connectivity. But is it enough for Motorola enthusiasts to want to upgrade from their first 10.1-inch love?
