Verizon event July 23rd: DROID reboot on tap

It's time again for Verizon to bring the re-up - an event has been scheduled for the 23rd of July, 2013 likely set for a set of new DROID devices.

Verizon DROID coming soon: Motorola, Samsung, HTC, or LG?

If it wasn't going to happen with the HTC One, it certainly had to hit Motorola.

Watch out Google: Samsung’s Galaxy brand has eclipsed Android

Watch out Google: Samsung’s Galaxy brand has eclipsed Android

It would appear that the Samsung brand push of the name "Galaxy" associated with their Android-toting smartphones and tablets is working so extremely well that this week the hardware name has become more popular than the software. Having a peek at the findings analyst Benedict Evans has found with a few search term trends in Google's own search engine, it's made clear that as the Android search term has risen, so has the term Galaxy. In November of 2012 it's shown that Galaxy was searched more than Android for the first time either term was relevant in search terms across Google's history.

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD hands-on vs RAZR HD

Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD hands-on vs RAZR HD

Verizon has been granted a couple more smartphones from the likes of Motorola and Google here with the massive battery-toting DROID RAZR MAXX HD right alongside its near-identical brother the RAZR HD (without so much MAXX). The difference between these two devices is just about as slight as it could possibly get - the MAXX has twice the internal storage (32GB instead of 16) and a giant 3,300mAh battery instead of the 2,530mAh unit the standard HD has. The weight and thickness are absolutely negligible - even when you've got them both in your hands it's difficult to guess which is which, believe it or not.
