Motorola with Android Voice Actions battles Siri in comparison video

Motorola has decided to take a jab at Apple's Siri intelligent voice assistant app by pitting it against Android's Voice Actions feature running on an Atrix 2, Photon 4G, and Electrify. In all three comparison videos, Siri gets beat down complete with the knockout bell sound effects. However, the video does come direct from Motorola, not exactly an unbiased source, so some rigging or editing isn't completely out of the question. Continue after the cut to watch and judge for yourself.

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?

Iconia Tab A100 Review

Iconia Tab A100 Review

It is true that Acer only a few months ago brought us one of the first round of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets In the Iconia Tab A500, a 10-inch tablet with a thin metal backing attached to one of the cheapest prices on the market. What we've got now is only the second 7-inch tablet on the market and the first one to carry any version of Honeycomb. Furthermore, this A100 7-inch Acer tablet is the world's first Android 3.2 Honeycomb tablet, 3.2 being the first tablet-oriented Google mobile OS made for tablets of under 10 inches in size. This tablet is not meant to be the thinnest tablet on the market, and neither this nor the original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet are likely to be winning the tablet fashion show, but what we DO have here is a nice little "tween" sized Android device toting NVIDIA's Tegra 2 dual-core processor - will it carve its own piece out of the tablet market pie due to it's relatively unique nature?

DROID BIONIC Revealed in Full Hardware Photos [UPDATE: Videos Too!]

The mobile world has been waiting for a device which combines a dual-core processor with the speed of Verizon's 4G LTE network since CES this past January. It was at this Consumer Electronics Show that the DROID Bionic was originally revealed, a device which combined an unnamed dual-core processor with the ability to run at what Verizon was then noting was up to 10 times faster than 3G with their 4G LTE network. What we've got now is a mobile environment where LTE has been worked into three Android smartphones, dual-core processors are in more than five smartphones, but there's still no combination of the two - by the looks of the photos in this post, that's about to change very soon.
