FCC follows our lead, goes hands-on with the Logitech Revue Google TV box

0

Guess the guys and gals in the federal government saw our hands-on with the Logitech Revue Google TV set-top box and figured they should give it the what-for as well. ... What's that? It can't be released to the public without the FCC's blessing? OK, fine. We understand. But that's not going to stop us from calling "First!" Or at least "Second!" [FCC via Engadget]

White HTC Evo 4G makes early appearance at Best Buy

42

The white HTC Evo 4G, a Best Buy exclusive, should be available for purchase this Sunday, July 11, but some lucky people are seeing them a full five days early.  Even better, it seems that at least a few Best Buy stores aren't being shy about handing out the white version of HTC's latest masterpiece to customers who pre-ordered either.  If you were waiting for a shiny white Evo and had the foresight to pre-order one, might want to get on the horn with your local Best Buy and see if they have your sitting in stock -- waiting for you to bring home and add it to the family.  Be sure to shout out, and some pictures would be awesome :) [Engadget]

You Mac users out there (yes, we know there are a few of you) likely are familiar with 1Password, the uber-password management software.

You're going to have to manually copy over your password data from your computer to the phone, but after that, you'll have access to everything. And best of all, it's free.

Motorola Milestone getting bugfix update

4

The wait for Android 2.2 continues, but the European Motorola Milestone apparently is in the midst of another update. MR2.5 reportedly comprises bugfixes and performance/stability improvements, which we certainly wouldn't shrug our shoulders at. Random power cycling and force closes are said to be targeted, and the alarm clock and music capabilities are said to have been addressed. Check your phone or hit up the Motorola software update tool. [via The:Unwired]

Update: Whoops. Apparently Motorola jumped the gun, though you can get the update if you're in Greece, which is nice.

Motorola Droid X review

73

Verizon's latest Android smartphone is one big, bad (as in good) Droid

 

Droid X does it bigger. Take everything you've come to know and love about Verizon's Droid line of Android smartphones -- starting with the original Motorola Droid then taking a step forward (or sideways, some might say) with the HTC Droid Eris and Droid Incredible -- and crank it up to 11. The screen size. The processing power. The camera. The screen size. It's big, it's powerful, and it's threatening to vault the Droid line to a whole new level of popularity, which is saying something.

So let's dive into the Droid X, available July 15 for $199 on contract. After the break, the biggest phone to hit Verizon -- literally -- since the Droid line was born last year.

HTC posts record 2nd-quarter profits

5

Three months, 33 percent improvement, and $268 million. That's HTC's second-quarter numbers for you, with the Taiwanese handset manufacturer posting its largest quarterly net profit since Q4 2007. Sales were up 58 percent at $1.88 billion (and up 67 percent YoY in June alone), beating HTC's own estimates. Not a bad three months, indeed. So if you have any friends in Bellevue, Wash., or Taiwan, make sure they buy lunch this week. [HTC]

Twidroid is now Twidroyd, purchased by TweetUp Inc.

8

Henceforth, one of your favorite Android Twitter clients, Twidroid, shall forever be known as Twidroyd. That's part of its purchase by TweetUp Inc., which lays claim to "the world's first bidded marketplace for real time search." TweetUp also picked up popuris, an aggregation service, which will work hand-in-hand with Twidroyd. The company also said Twidroyd "will come standard on millions of upcoming Android phones" from five manufacturers.

Why the name change? To avoid any pesky licensing fees (or lawsuits) with Lucas Films (as in George Lucas -- as in Star Wars -- as in droids -- as in C-3PO and R2-D2). Makes sense. Check out the full presser after the break. [Twidroyd]
