supposed pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S4 arrived, and now we're getting some leaks of the rumored Motorola X-Phone with new specs and all. Sadly both are probably fake, and we can obviously confirm the render below making the rounds has been falsified and is just a mock-up by an eager fan.
Motorola was finally sending out limited beta test builds of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the original and aging DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX. Now just a few short hours later Motorola themselves have confirmed the real update will arrive starting today to all RAZR owners. It's about time!
Motorola DROID RAZR or RAZR MAXX from Verizon Wireless we have some excellent news. Reports are flooding in that the 'official' update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is in the testing stages, and hopefully will be coming soon. However, lucky for you guys we already have the actual update file and you can get it right now. Details and instructions can be found below.
iOS. The report details the "key trends" in the US smartphone market and covers a three month time period which ended in January. Diving right in with a spoiler, Android was the number one smartphone platform and Apple was the number one smartphone manufacturer.
IDC (International Data Corporation) report that covered smartphone sales for the fourth quarter of 2012. That report noted the quarter as having a strong demand for smartphones and of heated competition between vendors.

Motorola front has surfaced today. The once Apple legend, marketing guru, and chief technology evangelist Guy Kawasaki has recently confirmed that he's accepted a job and role with Motorola - who's now owned by Google.

Google is in charge many are expecting an entirely new Motorola, stunning devices, and better update timelines for our favorite smartphones and tablets. We've heard tons about this new "game changing" Motorola X-Phone too - but this all might still be a bit premature.
Jelly Bean for the original Motorola DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX has been somewhat of a mystery. After the company did an excellent job updating their RAZR HD and RAZR M, the original RAZR owners have been stuck waiting. Today however we have good news that the official beta (soak test) for the update has started, and hopefully it will be rolling out to all users soon.
Motorola may not be perfect in terms of how fast they are able to roll-out an Android update, they have always been pretty good at providing status updates. The company has long had a support page on their site. More important, that page has seen frequent updates. The issue had always been in the discovery though -- you see, the page generally consisted of one long list with lots of names and model numbers.
Motorola will get a nice little gift in return. For eligible smartphones, after purchase users will get a free $50 gift card for the Google Play Store. With many new smartphones on the horizon it appears that Motorola is trying to steal a few more sales real quick.
