DROID BIONIC pumped up by Clay Matthews, Simon Cowell, faux Natalie Portman [Videos]

DROID BIONIC pumped up by Clay Matthews, Simon Cowell, faux Natalie Portman [Videos]

What you've got here is a couple of commercials straight off the cutting room floor at Verizon, both of them supporting the DROID BIONIC, aka the world's first dual-core smartphone that also supports their 4G LTE network. The first of these uses NFL player Clay Matthews and an NFL Mobile app and the second uses television personality Simon Cowell and his failing talent judgement show X Factor. Do these ads titillate you into wanting the BIONIC, or was it the Natalie Portman lookalike with the epic Lance Henriksen doing the background voice?

Motorola ATRIX 2 Leaked Photos and Details

Motorola ATRIX 2 Leaked Photos and Details

Inside the halls of Motorola, the second coming of the ATRIX, also known as the Motorola Edison, is upon us. This follow-up to the first dual-core processor-toting device to hit the shores of the United States has an upgraded dual-core processor (likely a 1.2 or 1.5 GHz OMAP4 chip from Texas Instruments), WONT be an LTE device, and will have an 8-megapixel camera on the back. Will this curved-glass front-having dual-core monster be able to compete with the current onslaught of alternate dual-core Androids? Only time, and AT&T's selection of said devices, will tell!

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.

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?

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.

DROID X2 Review

DROID X2 Review

For a while, Motorola's original DROID X on Verizon led the pack. Offering a big screen, a big camera and a slender chassis, it helped drive the race toward oversized Android handsets that has led us to the Galaxy S II, Infuse 4G and Sensation. Now comes the Motorola DROID X2, boosting screen resolution and throwing in a second processor core, but wrapped up in the same sober suit. Has the company done enough to keep the DROID X2 topical, or is this sequel a flop? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Droid X2 Unboxing and Hands-on [vs. Droid X]

It must be the day for 4.3-inch qHD Android smartphones: first the HTC Sensation, and now Verizon's DROID X2 by Motorola. The second-gen handset sticks closely to what made its predecessor a success, but will that undermine enthusiasm for upgraders? Check out our first impressions after the cut.

DROID Incredible 2 Review

DROID Incredible 2 Review

Last April we described the original DROID Incredible as an "excellent" device, buoyed above the then-competition by virtue of its 8-megapixel camera and user-friendly HTC Sense interface. Since then, Android phones have grown second processor cores and even bigger displays, and the smartphone market in general has become a far more competitive place. Can the Verizon DROID Incredible 2 pick up where its predecessor left off? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
