Motorola DROID BIONIC incompatible with ATRIX Lapdock

Motorola DROID BIONIC incompatible with ATRIX Lapdock

Bad news if you picked up a Laptop Dock for the Motorola ATRIX and hoped you could use it with the brand new DROID BIONIC: we can confirm that neither peripheral is interchangeable with the other smartphone. Although the original Laptop Dock and new BIONIC Lapdock are the same in theory - an 11.6-inch display, full keyboard and trackpad, to turn the Android smartphone into a notebook replacement - the change in dock design means that there's neither backward or forward compatibility.

DROID BIONIC First-Impressions [video]

DROID BIONIC First-Impressions [video]

We've been waiting for the DROID BIONIC by Motorola for some time, now. Verizon has had 4G LTE Android smartphones before, of course, but they've always come with a compromise: so far, if you've wanted LTE then you've also had to make do with a single-core processor. The DROID BIONIC changes that, packing not only high-speed wireless connectivity but a dual-core 1GHz CPU as well, putting the speedy Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread experience on a 4.3-inch qHD anti-reflective touchscreen. That's plenty of boxes ticked from the off; read on for all our first-impressions.

HTC Vigor Android Handset Appears in Leaked Photos

HTC Vigor Android Handset Appears in Leaked Photos

It appears that we're right now getting our first real-world look at the HTC Vigor, a device that's been rumored to be Verizon's follow-up device coming right after the DROID Bionic. This device appears in these photos to be a rather large display-having HTC device that's got HTC's Sense user interface aboard, four Android menu buttons across the bottom front letting us know that it's still going to be running something before Ice Cream Sandwich, a front-facing camera, a back-facing camera with dual-LED flash, a lovely speaker grill on the front, two mics on the back for noise cancellation, another speaker grill in the back near the bottom, the HTC logo nicely framed on the back by ribs that cover the palm of the area where your hand will be resting, and - what's that - a red rim around the camera lens.

Droid Bionic silent walkthrough video surfaces

We know we're getting close to the launch of the much delayed Motorola Droid Bionic when we start seeing official Verizon teaser videos for the phone. The most recent featured a Natalie Portman look-alike wielding a sword, but the phone itself never made an appearance. Perhaps more helpful for those who actually want to see the phone, is this newly leaked walk-through video.

Samsung Galaxy S II USA Family Confirmed, Verizon May Be Next

Samsung Galaxy S II USA Family Confirmed, Verizon May Be Next

It appears very likely, now that we've got a cool slightly pixelated photo and everything, that Samsung will be releasing the Samsung Galaxy S II in the USA next week on three of the big four USA carriers with slightly different configurations, software and hardware included. What we're still not clear on is why news has popped up surrounding Verizon not being on this list. Given another bit of very possibly legit information we got this morning, a Samsung Galaxy S II upgrade is on the way as well, this time with a slightly larger 4.5-inch display and 4G LTE capabilities. What could this possibly mean for Verizon?

Samsung Galaxy S II Verizon Model Possibly Axed

Samsung Galaxy S II Verizon Model Possibly Axed

It appears that the largest network in the United States will not be carrying the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone, a flagship device for the manufacturer and one of the best selling phones in the world at the moment. As the Wall Street Journal reports, having spoken with "people familiar with the plans," each of the other "big four" carriers will be carrying the device inside September, blue, yellow, and pink being the lot of them, but apparently Verizon has declined to move forward with the Samsung dual-core device. Samsung's Kim Titus has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S II would indeed be unveiled in the USA next week, but declined to comment any further on the group's plans for carriers.

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

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.
