Motorola Droid 3

Verizon sale cuts DROID 3, X2, Charge and Incredible 2 to just $9.99

You like Android phones. (Presumably, anyway - why else would you be here?) You like saving money. If you also like Verizon and don't mind missing out on the latest bells and whistles, you can score a pretty sweet deal on some of last year's DROID series phones. Between now and Monday, March 12th, you can get the Motorola DROID 3, Motorola DROID X2, HTC Droid Incredible 2 or the Samsung DROID Charge for just ten bucks, with a new two-year contract. There's also a DROID X2 phone and accessory pack with a car charger, holster and screen protector for "just" $49.99.

GSM Motorola Droid 3 arrives at the FCC

Soon after the original Motorola Droid, we saw the Motorola Milestone - an international version of the device. The trend continued with the Droid 2/Milestone 2, and folks overseas have undoubtedly be waiting for their Milestone 3. Now, a GSM Motorola Droid 3 (XT682) has hit the FCC, but isn't said to be headed overseas just yet, rather to AT&T instead.

Motorola DROID 3 and LG Revolution reaching Verizon’s end of life

We know that at least a few of you have been patiently waiting for the DROID 4 - gotta have that high-powered QWERTY action. The latest internal Verizon leak seems to imply a February release date, and that's corroborated by an upcoming end-of-life status for the Motorola DROID 4. An anonymous source told The Verge that the last DROID 3 units would be shipped to Verizon this month, along with the LG Revolution. Take that for what it's worth, but Verizon probably wouldn't stop selling a major player in the DROID line without having something ready to take its place soon.

Motorola DROID 3 OTA update coming soon

Well, the Motorola Droid 3 hasn't been out too long but it is already set to get an over the air update soon, possibly sometime this week. Something we have heard of many times is about to start and that is a "soak test" for the over the air update. This update should hopefully fix a slew of small problems plaguing the device since launch such as battery issues and what not, as well as hopefully add Google Talk voice chat capabilities with Android 2.3.4

Verizon Outs Android-Compatible Intuit GoPayment Credit Card Reader

You know how when you go to those future stores where clerks have credit card scanners on their phones, you don't have to go to a sales desk because there IS NO SALES DESK? Imagine if you had the same sort of situation going on in your store - or better yet, imagine if you had your own mobile business going on and all you had to do to get some cash from someone was to swipe their card along the side of your Android device? That time has come, the hardware is here, and Verizon's got your back. What Verizon has revealed today is no less than the Intuit GoPayment App and Credit Card Reader, a hardware/software combination that'll allow your small business to go mobile instantly.

Motorola Droid 3 Receives Root Access [Updated with 1-click]

Thanks to XDA Forums member djrbliss, who hasn't ever actually touched the Droid 3, found a nice and simple exploit that has allowed the Droid 3 to be successfully rooted. He has yet to unveil the full exploit used but he was nice enough to give everyone some instructions to do this on their own. No one click root here, this requires some ADB shell skills so make sure you know what you're getting into.

Android Community Weekly : July 16, 2011

It’s the middle of July and tech news this week has been rock steady! Lets start off by saying that Google+ is now available for international users; and at this point it seems that all Google+ is missing compared to other social platforms is a wider userbase. In other Google news, their new project “Google Offers (Beta)” launched in NYC Tuesday. Think of this service as a way to save money with many different local businesses on a daily basis. This past Monday evening, HTC released information that the bootloaders of some of their more recent devices will be unlocked in the coming months of August and September. Some of their devices have already been unlocked over at XDA Developers, but I’m sure many have been awaiting an official fix.
