While we don’t have a lot of information yet, we know that according to Seidenberg, the tiered pricing will be here within the next 6 months and that it will be different than what AT&T offers. Seidenberg made the point that AT&T and Verizon look at the value of data differently. We are not clear whether this means higher or lower pricing. AT&T currently offers 200MB of data per month for $15 and 2GB of data per month for $25. Verizon currently offers unlimited data for $29.99.
Ahhhh, the web is alive with the sound of Froyo. At least it is if you’re a Droid X owner. The long awaited updated is almost here and we’ve received confirmation that tomorrow, Wednesday the 22nd, is the big day.
If you still don’t believe us, and quite frankly we can’t say we blame you for as long as it’s taken, just do a search on the internets and you’ll see post after post after post detailing Verizon’s acknowledgement that Droid X is getting Froyo starting tomorrow.
Has the long awaited Froyo update finally arrived for Motorola Droid X owners? The on again off again rumor mill has been saying so for going on three months now, but still nothing. Motorola and Verizon said we could expect the upgrade by the end of summer, which is now only days away.
The page on droiddoes.com looks like a formal announcement for the Droid X release of Froyo. Unlike other information that appears to have been leaked, this page is open to the public and contains a link to another informational page within the Verizon owned Droid Does site.
Last week, Samsung unveiled their newest baby, the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It’s patterned after their Galaxy line of Mobile phone devices, but it’s a 7” touchscreen tablet with a TFT capacitive touch display rocking a 600 x 1024 resolution. Their announcement came at the IFA conference in Berlin and the buzz has gone nonstop since that time.
There are now rumors that Samsung might be putting on a US press conference to introduce the device near the end of next week. Not sure this is necessary, as we all know just about all we need to know about this device. The bottom line is that I want one and this thing has the real chance of rivaling the iPad. It actually brings to the table, some options that the iPad doesn’t yet.
As many of you know, DViceNews has recently launched our YouTube channel at www.YouTube.com/DViceNews. Our desire is to use YouTube as a way of entertaining, having some fun, and putting out product reviews that give our readers and viewers the chance to connect visually with some of the newest and most exciting tech products on the market.
With that in mind, it is very fitting that the first two videos we filmed to kick off the channel were an unboxing and now a full video review of the Motorola Droid 2 from Verizon. Our friends at Verizon were kind enough to provide us with a review model of their newest Android phone. In short, we were impressed with what we saw.
By now, many of you have probably already heard that Google has launched Voice Actions for Android 2.2 users. The voice actions feature allows you to interact with your phone using your voice to get the information you need in a way that used to require you to type, tap and search through your phone’s browser, contacts, map application or email.
Google and US mobile phone carriers have been rolling out Froyo rather quickly in the last couple of weeks. There have been announcements about the Droid, the EVO 4G, the Nexus One, and the Droid 2, which shipped with the upgrade already installed. We are expecting to see the Droid X get the update soon and then many other devices are set to follow in the weeks and months to come.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, August 18th, you should be able to add the Verizon’s Droid Incredible to the list. Updates should be pushed over the air. We’re not entirely clear if all Incredible owners will receive the update at the same time or if Verizon will push the update to smaller groups at a time.
