Motorola’s 4.0 ICS launcher leaked, try it now

Now I know the first thing many of you might be thinking is why would we want this. Most people tend to steer away from Motorola's user interface changes previously known as BLUR. Well, with the latest Gingerbread builds on the DROID 4, and some of what we've seen from Moto's 4.0 leaks has been promising and I'm sure some wouldn't mind giving them a try on their own phone.

DROID RAZR ICS leak shows a Blurry new UI

Wondering how Motorola is dealing with Google's new user interface requirements for access to the Android Market? Wonder no more. A user on the DROIR RAZR forum showed off screenshots that appear to be the Ice Cream Sandwich update for Motorola's flagship, combining elements of their "don't-call-it-Blur" custom user interface and the standard Holo theme. There's no new information on when we can expect the update to hit (hint: settle in for a long wait) but they do show an interesting progression between Blur and Ice Cream Sandwich. This is a considerably different build than the one we saw for the international RAZR.

Motorola Photon 4G Review

The Motorola / NVIDIA tag team continues to bust down doors and open up the options for strange new journeys on Android devices - desktop mode, docks galore, and the kickstand that turns your diamond-shaped Photon 4G into the world's most excellent desk clock. We've got the actual handset here, plus the HD dock, plus the car dock, all of them the standard editions you'll be purchasing in the store very soon from Motorola. If there were a predecessor to this device, it's the first dual-core device from Motorola, that being the ATRIX 4G that came out earlier this year with very similar dock accessories and very similar functionality. While it may seem like one's first inclination to compare this device to the ATRIX, we're already on a whole new landscape with more dual-cores on the market than we know what to do with. The ATRIX still sells off the shelf, especially with it's new cheaper price [$99 at AT&T today] and upgrade to Gingerbread - will the Photon add up?

Motorola DROID 3 Hands-On and Unboxing

We've got the next step, sort of a side step, in the ever-expanding DROID line at Verizon here with the DROID 3, fresh out of the box. Together let's have a look at a device that certainly steps lightly towards the future of handheld devices with a rather safe and solid look at the DROID way of working with things. This device has a 1GHz OMAP4 4430 processor from the streets! This is a bit of an upgrade, some may say, over the previously suspected NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor that was originally rumored to be being put in this machine. That said, look at the simplicity and the shininess of the DROID legacy as it keeps unfoldin'.

Motorola CEO Blames Device Returns on Android Market, Looks to MOTOBLUR to Mend

It appears that the reason why 70-percent of all returned Motorola devices the company is aware of are the result of applications that have affected usability, that's what Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha noted during a webcast of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Technology conference. These 3rd party apps coming in throughout he Android Market have resulted in a less then optimized experience, noted Jha, Google's approach on apps, he said, is basically sub-bar and is definitely a problem.

Droid X2 Shown in the Wild [Video]

The funniest thing about Area 51 is it's the worst kept secret in the federal government. Everyone knows it's there but Uncle Sam. Now what does this have to do with the headline? Everyone knows about the Droid X2, but Motorola won't fess up about it. Even when there's this video and images of it in action ....

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."
