Motorola kills Android Webtop

Motorola kills Android Webtop

Motorola has axed development of its Webtop system, claiming underwhelming sales means further investment in the idea of using a smartphone as the core of a desktop-replacement hub was unfeasible. Webtop, a custom feature of several recent Motorola Android smartphones, worked with desktop docks and notebook-like Lapdock clamshells to offer a full version of Firefox among other features; however, Motorola confirmed to CNET, the expectation is that core Android functionality itself will make its own Webtop work redundant.

Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE Review

Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE Review

This week we've had a look at the next slide-out QWERTY smartphone to hit the 4G LTE universe in the Motorola PHOTON Q. This device represents some of the best and the worst in the smartphone market today, starting with Motorola's lovely take on a QWERTY keyboard, complete with light-up keys that feel rather nice to tap away on. The Sprint network, on the other hand, has been a letdown - both to the operating system and the hardware it's working with.

US Cellular brings Motorola Electrify 2 and Defy XT to the hardcore public

It's time to get hardcore on the Motorola tip with your favorite 5th-place carrier in the United States, US Cellular. There are two new devices being revealed this week, the first being the Electrify 2, a Motorola device that takes everything that's great about Motorola's newest line of RAZR and ATRIX devices and puts it in a slightly different casing. The second device is a rough-and-tumble smartphone by the name of Defy XT, another Motorola smartphone that looks rather similar to the Defy, a Motorola smartphone sold by T-Mobile.

Android 5.0 Jelly Bean gains Motorola desktop mode

Android 5.0 Jelly Bean gains Motorola desktop mode

If you've used a Motorola Android device over the past year or so, you've very likely experienced Motorola's own "webtop" mode, this allowing your smartphone a desktop-like interface when plugged into an HDMI-capable display. The tip comes from Staska of Unwired View who notes that information he's gathered leads to the idea that Android 5.0 will have a desktop mode which activates whenever the device is plugged into a larger display. Could this have anything to do with Google's recent near-complete deal in which they're acquiring Motorola Mobility? It certainly would allow them to avoid patent suits should they actually make a desktop mode!

Motorola DROID 4 Review

Motorola DROID 4 Review

Finally the one-two-three punches of Verizon's 4G LTE, a dual-core processor, and an 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p video has come to the DROID line of QWERTY keyboard-having Android devices. Those of you who are die-hard fans of the DROID line know that Verizon and Motorola have dipped in a few devices that strayed from the original power combo complete with QWERTY and may have had hard luck picking up the DROID 3 which, despite its having a decent processor and a fair but not too fantastic camera on the back, had no LTE and was released when Motorola's user interface change-over was at a bit of a strange point. Now the QWERTY DROID line is back and stronger than ever, and if you're not a person who minds the massiveness of the chassis here, you're in for a treat.

Motorola DROID 4 Hands-On and Unboxing

Motorola DROID 4 Hands-On and Unboxing

The fourth iteration of Motorola's ultra-popular DROID line for Verizon has arrived and with its 4-inch qHD scratch and scrape resistant screen, full QWERTY keyboard, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and 4G LTE connectivity, this may well be the best installment in the series yet! This device is quite reminiscent of the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX that've also just been released by Motorola and Verizon, the corners, the display, and even the back shape. The difference here is in the edge-lit keyboard, the loving embrace of the core DROID branding, and the fact that it's got a big 4 at the end of its name -- let's have a look at what it means to continue on with the DROID line.

Verizon DROID 4 by Motorola official with QWERTY and LTE

Verizon DROID 4 by Motorola official with QWERTY and LTE

Verizon has finally got around to launching the much-anticipated (and, for that matter, much-leaked) Motorola DROID 4, the Android device apparently taking the record for the "thinnest and most powerful 4G LTE QWERTY smartphone." Hiding a slide-out five-row QWERTY 'board behind a 4-inch qHD touchscreen, the DROID 4 has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, and runs Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread with an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade in the pipeline.

Motorola Lapdock 500 spied at FCC, Droid Razr tags along

Motorola has been offering Lapdocks for some of it smartphones for a while now. These things look like notebooks, but are docks for smartphones that take some of the stuff you see on the screen of the smartphone and put it on a larger notebook size display. The keyboard of the Lapdock makes it easier to work, email, and text from your smartphone when using one of the docks.

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

Back when the world hadn't yet tasted more than a single core in a smartphone here in the USA, there was the ATRIX 4G, and now that the large part of a year has passed and dual-core processors are the norm, the ATRIX 2 pops up with a few improved specs and a whole new body - is it time to upgrade? We've got more than a few questions (and a few answers, too!) about the ATRIX 2 including why it exists and how it'll stand up against the rest of the very well-suited superphone environment again here in the USA. Did Motorola create another ATRIX just for the fun of it, or is this truly the next-level device ATRIX lovers of the past have been waiting for?

Motorola Lapdock 100 Review

Motorola Lapdock 100 Review

Motorola has since the first ATRIX device been pushing a mobile environment it calls Webtop, and here in one of two of its newest Webtop-based devices, the Lapdock 100, working in this world is a strangely enticing option. One of the set of tests I'm putting this Lapdock through is actually creating this post using the Lapdock itself NEARLY exclusively. I've not quite been able to bring myself to use it for any sort of image processing yet, but everything inside typing, highlighting, right-clicking, and the basics of blogging seem to be working just fine thus far. How's this device hooked up with a Motorola smartphone work out for the rest of an everyday set of activities? We shall see!
