If you’ve been on pins and needles waiting for more information about the Droid X, today looks to be a pretty good day. According to Droid-Life, the site that has been absolutely crushing it when it comes to this particular phone, the Droid X will make its Verizon debut on July 19th. It goes without saying that this is a rumor, but apparently all of this will be made official next week. We can’t wait. Can you? More →
Well hello again, sexy. Courtesy of Gadget University, we now have some wonderful new images of the Motorola Droid X (known aliases: Extreme, Xtreme and Shadow) to get us through the weekend. Apart from noting that the device is solidly built, it was noted that the 4.3″ WVGA display (some still contend it’s 4.1″) is not AMOLED, but it’s said to be quite the stunner likely feature IPS technology. It’s also been confirmed that the Droid X will feature a new version of MOTOBLUR, although the lads at Gadget University say it’s “not as bad as what you may think.” Unfortunately we didn’t get treated to a few sample pics from the 8 megapixel camera or even some if its 720p video, but us beggars can’t really be choosers, now can we? Skip over the break to check out some more photos.
Thanks, Edvard! More →
Speaking to reporters after a presentation at the Executive Club, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha said that his company will soon be announcing up to four handsets — presumably Android — that are capable of making video calls through front-facing cameras. Even though Jha said he has “never been a great believer” in video calling, he admitted that it is something that should be added to handsets, especially in light of the release of the EVO 4G and upcoming iPhone 4. In other Motorola news, Jha said that the Droid is selling very well through Verizon despite the fact that there is a shortage of components including displays from Samsung, an issue that is currently affecting sales of the HTC Droid Incredible.

The crazy cats over at Droid Life are back once again with yet another leak of the Motorola MB810 which Droid Life claims will be sold as the Droid Xtreme and not the Droid Shadow. In the past we have seen this phone from various angles, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen its backside. Two things to take away from these pics. First is the camera which is clearly labelled as 8 megapixels with HD video and is flanked by a dual-LED flash. The second thing is UI customization. We’ve already seen the Xtreme powered on, but this picture gives us a much clearer look at the more subtle UI customization brought forth in what some are calling “ninja blur.” Are you liking how the Xtreme is shaping up?

You can call it the Shadow, you can call it the Droid EXTREME, and you can even call it the DROID XTREME, but we say it should simply referred to as what it really is: sexy. Two new images of the Motorola MB810 have leaked out via Droid Life. According to their tipster who sent in the photos, the phone runs Android 2.2 aka Froyo and has 9 user customizable homescreens. The device is said to feel “very metal” and comes with a questionably located dedicated camera button. MOTOBLUR is claimed to be absent, but then we know this is unlikely true considering that wnrussell, the HoFo user that gave us our first look at the device, claims it runs in the background.
