Motorola XOOM world modem spotted in teardown

It's something of a teardown day, with first the new MacBook Pro getting stripped to basics and now the Motorola XOOM suffering the same. iFixit whipped open the casing - a straightforward process, given Motorola obviously doesn't want to make things too difficult for its technicians adding in 4G modem support - and discovered that the XOOM actually uses the same hybrid CDMA/GSM modem as found in the Verizon iPhone 4.

Droid X Review

Droid X Review

Motorola's first-generation DROID shook HTC's dominance of the Android segment and arguably reinvented the company after years of tired RAZR variants. Now, after a spate of low- to mid-tier Android devices, the company has unveiled their next high-end smartphone. The Motorola DROID X, again on Verizon Wireless in the US, scales up the screen, the camera and the processor, while simultaneously slimming down in the hand; it also faces strong competition from HTC, Samsung and others. Has Motorola done enough second-time around? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC EVO 4G Review

HTC EVO 4G Review
