Gameloft releases Asphalt 6 for Android

It looks as if Gameloft has quietly released the much anticipated racing game Asphalt 6 for Android recently. I've not heard anything about it. I didn't see it posted on @GameloftAndroid on twitter or anything. I'm not sure why it was such a quiet launch, but at least it is finally here. I think they are still working on it as not all phones can get it yet. I tried for the Atrix and the site said it was not released for that device yet.

Verizon DROID X2 leak tips smaller memory card not refreshed phone

Motorola's DROID X is getting on, but it seems the replacement Motorola DROID X2 may not be a huge improvement. An SCK Kiosks (a subsidiary of Radio Shack) tipster has sent in a screenshot from the company's internal systems that tips the DROID X2 as merely a DROID X with a 2GB pre-loaded memory card rather than a 16GB card. According to the leak, the DROID X2 is more of a shorthand to differentiate the models in the system, rather than a truly new version. It will be priced the same as the original, and there's no talk of the Tegra 2 processor and other specs in the last leak. Motorola may have boosted internal storage to counter the smaller memory card, but it seems that this is merely a cheaper way to ship the original DROID X now that the smartphone is ageing. [Thanks anonymous tipster!]

Droid X2 getting evaluated by the FCC?

It's always entertaining when those on the web stalk the FCC and the patent office for sneak peaks as to what gadgets are coming. But often, there's some useful intel that comes as a result. The latest listing on the FCCs website that the Droid X2 may be coming is a case in point. The listing, which has a 180 day confidentiality letter, included tells of a Motorola CDMA phone that handles EVDO, BLuetooth, and wireless bands b-n. Since it's CDMA and Motorola, that usually points to Verizon's way, but is it really the Droid X2 that everyone is talking about? Inquiring minds want to know.

Droid X powers a homebrew space satellite for capturing Discovery launch

The space science group Quest for Stars built a home brew satellite with a weather balloon, a trio of ProHD cameras, and operated by a pair of Droid X Android phones. The phones were powered by 2600mAh extended batteries and were insulated against the cold of space with nothing more than a beverage cooler. The Droid's were used for GPS tracking and for controlling the photo and video from the ProHD cameras. What's really cool about the project was that it was timed to be at the edge of space during the final launch of the space shuttle Discovery. But that's not all ...

Atrix bootloader gets locked down, no custom ROMs

The back and forth between Motorola and XDA Developers has undergone a new chapter as the bootloader for the Atrix 4G phone has been locked down to prevent any installation of custom ROMs. That means that for now, there's no way to remove MotoBlur, or add any custom work to the phone. When it comes to adding custom ROMS Angry users already know the score target="_blank" via Twitter: "@tdcrooks if you want to do custom roms, then buy elsewhere, we’ll continue with our strategy that is working thanks."

Motorola Atrix 4G and Droid X have Same Battery Lineage

All of you Droid fans will be happy to know that whilst taking a closer look at the Atrix 4G today, we noticed that the battery is in the same family as the model found in the Droid X. Upon even closer inspection and testing, we found that the batteries are swappable, meaning you're going to have essentially the same battery potential with the Atrix 4G that you've had with your Droid X when you bust it out after it's released.
