droid-eye

The DROID 2 from Motorola is expected to ship with Android 2.2 (Froyo). Android 2.3 - the Gingerbread man - isn't quite ready for primetime yet. That means that the DROID 2 launch date is being pushed back, and based on rumors making their way to our news desk, the Motorola DROID 2 on Verizon will hit store shelves August 23rd. This gives the red checkmark of a service provider enough time to run stability tests for Froyo on the DROID 2. It will also make things easier for their end users who painstakingly have to upgrade all by themselves.

att-iphone4-chart

I’m just as tired as you are about hearing that Verizon or Sprint is going to get the iPhone 4. The rumor has been going on for quite some time. Even with the Wall Street Journal reporting on it, there hasn’t been a whole lot to back that up, until now. What AT&T is calling “another very exciting day for customers,” could be a ploy to lock you in to another contract. With the iPhone 4 release, new plans from the exclusive carrier were announced offering current iPhone owners the option to upgrade early; the clincher, you are with them for another 2 years.

What's with these technology employees and their knack for losing unreleased gadgetry in the most random of places? Following in the stumbling footsteps of an inebriated Apple engineer, it seems that a Verizon guy accidentally left his Motorola Shadow behind at the gym. As I'm sure you remember, an Apple employee accidentally lost his iPhone 4G/HD at a bar in Palo Alto and this leaked device found its way onto one of the web's most popular tech blogs.

Skype Mobile on Verizon Wireless

Sometimes it can be tough to convince conventional wireless carriers to allow their consumers to use Skype on their phones. This is understandable, I suppose, since it can bite straight into the carrier's bottom line. That said, less money from a customer is better than no customer at all. It seems that Verizon is coming to its senses in this respect, because it has announced that Skype Mobile will indeed be offered on several of its handset. The launch is slated for this Thursday, March 25.

When it was revealed at last year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, many said that it could be a serious competitor to the iPhone. Apple's handset still reigns supreme, but that doesn't mean Palm and Sprint are going to run and hide in a corner.

Sprint will be sending out the new WebOS 1.4 upgrade to Palm Pre owners after a community alert was dispatched revealing the news. The new OS comes with a range of improvements, but the most notable is support for a new Adobe Flash 10.1 plug-in from the Palm App Catalog.
