DROID 2 and DROID X commercials scooped, new details on handsets

DROID 2 Commercial

The unreleased, unannounced DROID 2 and DROID X have been under assault lately! This weekend DROIDLife got their hands on several scripts for unreleased commercials for the two handsets, and, luckily, they provide a little extra detail on what we are in store for. Let’s start with the DROID 2. Dialogue from the D2’s script goes something like this:

‘Does’ used to do a lot. Now it does even more. Now it does Email Exchange, so you can be hooked up to everything thing you need to do. Now it does 1.0GHz speed on a sleeker, more intuitive keyboard.  It does and does and does. And the only thing it doesn’t do is ask for time off.

A 1 GHz processor in the DROID 2? Sign us up!

The commercial for the DROID X focuses less on specs and more on several apps; specifically apps that accentuate the device’s large, 4.3-inch screen. What applications you ask? Well, an NFL application that will facilitate the viewing of live NFL games, and some sort of multimedia application that will allow you to control your home media station right from you new DROID X. Pretty exciting stuff. What do you think? More →

Samsung's Wave S8500 handset gets official

samsung-s8500

Not exactly like this came out of nowhere, but just recently in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress, Samsung announced the Wave S8500. It runs Samsung’s new OS, Bada, and is packed to the brim with features. We’re looking at a 3.3 inch “Super AMOLED” display, a 5 megapixel camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a 1 GHz CPU and loads of multimedia support. If you’re a multimedia junkie, you’ll be pleased as punch to find out that the Wave will have multi codec support for DivX and XviD formats as well as 720p video recording and decoding along with “virtual” 5.1 surround sound. Pricing hasn’t been announced but look for it to start shipping in April.

Sony Ericsson announces the XPERIA X10

se-xperia-x10

And yet another manufacturer has officially entered the Android game as Sony Ericsson has formally announced the XPERIA X10. Powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and running on Android 1.6 “Donut”, the X10 boasts a 4″ WVGA capacitive touchscreen display, an 8.1 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and two flavors of UMTS/HSPA — one of which supports T-Mobile, the other, AT&T — in addition to quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE. Regrettably there is only 1GB of built in memory, although an 8GB microSD card ships in the box. In terms of UI customization, the X10 comes with the UI overlay UX called Rachael (user experience) which extends into two premier apps: Mediascape — the media player which we’ve already seen twice — and Timescape, which more or less is SE’s answer to a MOTOBLUR type skin. Pricing and countries of availability has yet to be announced, but the XPERIA X10 will be available in Q1 2010 in Sensuous Black and Lustre White (yes, we LOL’d, too). Hit the jump for a promo video and a press release.
