AnDevCon drawing near with a wealth of Android app knowledge on tap

0

The second-annual AnDevCon is just a few short weeks away in San Francisco. And you've not yet registered, you've got until Oct. 21 to save $200 off total for the three-day passport and pre-conference workshops.

What's on tap at AnDevCon, you ask? How about a keynote address from Google's Chet Haase and Romain Guy? Or American Express' David Baldie and Andrew Peret. Or Motorola's Ruth Hennigar. Or Amazon's Sam Gigliotti. Or HTCDev's Dario Laverde and Bruce Jones?

Needless to say, it's going to be a packed three days. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Get the whole rundown on AnDevCon II at the link below.

Motorola Droid RAZR ships with locked bootloader, says Motorola Twitter account

24

Here's a bit of news that a few of you aren't going to like hearing -- the Motorola Droid RAZR will ship with a locked bootloader.  According to the official Motorola Mobility Twitter account:

The bootloader was locked per the carrier, in addition to meeting security, safety and regulatory guidelines.

We're not quite sure where regulatory guidelines come into play here, but we understand the carrier wants it locked as well as the safety aspect (even if we don't agree).  Luckily, it looks like Verizon will be offering another phone for those of you who want to unlock and fool around with the inner workings of your Android phone's software, and we should see it in about eight hours.  Android -- something for everyone.

Rogers has Canadian exclusive on the Motorola RAZR

9

For our friends up north: Rogers will have the exclusive on the Motorola RAZR. Said to be available in time for the holidays, no pricing was announced. But figure it'll go a bit cheaper than the $299 two-year U.S. offering, thanks to the Canadian standard three-year contract, right? Otherwise, same slim, fast phone as was just announced.

Motorola Droid RAZR hands-on

64

Motorola is being stingy with hands-on time but we were just lucky enough to find a representative willing to let us get our grubby paws on the new Droid RAZR. You know all the specs by heart now-- Super AMOLED display, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, and blazing fast Verizon 4G LTE-- but until you get your hands on this device, you only know half the story.

The RAZR is one of the thinnest, lightest smartphones on the market, and I can say with confidence that it will completely shake up VZW's 4G market. It's unlike any other device on Verizon today. Compared with my HTC Thunderbolt, the RAZR is paper thin. And in my hands, I barely felt any weight. It's impossibly light. 

The Kevlar back is a nice touch, and is certainly lightweight enough to justify itself. And did I mention that screen? Moto haters, you have met your match. It's gorgeous, and certainly leaps and bounds better than the previous PenTile technology they have been using. At first glance, I thought Motorola had Best Buy-esque demo units on hand, you know the ones with the sticker for the display? Thankfully they did not, but that's the first impression you'll get with the screen.

Looking for a removable battery? You're not going to find one here, though you do have a 1780mAh power supply, so it could be worse. If the RAZR's battery life lives up to what Motorola is hyping, this shouldn't be an issue. But until we can put it through its paces, it's a valid concern.

Kudos to Motorola and Verizon for working closely together to finally get 4G LTE onto a competitive device. And if the battery life lives up to the hype, we're all in for a treat. Enjoy some more photos below, with a video available after the dreaded YouTube upload.

Motorola Droid RAZR is officially official -- just 7.1mm thin!

95

Sanjay Jha just officailly breathed new life into an old brand with the Motorola Droid RAZR at its event in New York City. Thin. Light. Fast. It'll be available in early November for $299 on contract.

Let's just get to the specs.

  • 7.1 mm thin.
  • 127 grams
  • Kevlar
  • Gorilla Glass
  • Splash Guard
  • 1.2GHZ processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD display
  • 8MP camrea with 1080p video
  • MotoCast
  • 12.5 hours talk time/8.9 hours video playback
  • Webtop
  • 1780 mAh battery
  • Bluetooth 4.0

New software called Smart Actions is supposed to take care of some certain tasks in the background, like turning off Bluetooth and GPS when you're at home. Or if you're at 20 percent battery, it'll dim the display automatically, or slow the processor. Moto claims you can get up to 30 percent more battery life because of this.

It's also got MotoCast, which gives you your own personal cloud -- aka one more place to sync your stuff.

Full presser's after the break.

Motorola announces the MOTOACTV Android-based fitness tracker/MP3 player

21

We're live at Motorola's event in New York, where Sanjay Jha just announced a pretty broad leap into the fitness space with MOTOACTV.

It's a 46mm square Android-powered device that in addition to tracking your fitness regiment with its own website also serves as an MP3 player. The big plus, though, is that it's entirely wireless. Headphones, heart-rate tracker. No wires.

And, yes, it looks like an iPod Nano with buttons.

Developing. ...
