Posted on June 17, 2010 | No Commentsultra-special Droid dock's not enough for you? There's now another way to avoid buying Motorola's official accessories, though this one's a bit more blasphemous. Thijs Bosschert over in the Netherlands has put together a fully fledged adapter for his Milestone (aka Droid European Edition), which allows it to interface with docks designed for iPods and iPhones. He's done it using mostly parts he had lying around -- and a well-placed magnet, of course -- though he had to resort to using the 3.5mm headphone jack to extract audio from the device. The result might not look like a million bucks, but then it didn't cost that much either. See more pictures and Thijs' full how-to guide at the source.Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on June 10, 2010 | No CommentsMotorola's new Milestone hitting Europe with just 256MB of memory and a 550MHz processor, and it seems like Moto has listened. We're sure the XT720 would've done just fine running Android 2.1 with its previous spec, but we're hardly going to begrudge a free upgrade. The TI OMAP3440 is now running at 720MHz -- something Motorola had told us the phone was always capable of, though the company had initially opted to downclock away from it, presumably in an effort to extend battery life. RAM gets a healthy doubling to 512MB, bringing the Milestone XT720 more in line with its "premium multimedia" boast, while the launch date seems to remain unaltered: later this month for Europe and a big fat question mark for the USA.

Posted on June 8, 2010 | No CommentsMotorola Milestone owners still haven't managed to get the phone's bootloader unlocked, making custom Android ROMs (Froyo, for example) a whole heck of a lot more difficult -- but not impossible. It seems that the community is getting close to successfully employing a "kexec" solution, meaning a new kernel would be executed on top of the stock one without rebooting -- and from there, fully customized builds are basically a shoo-in. Motorola doesn't seem to be budging on a proper bootloader unlock, so it's good to see everyone involved is coming up on a workable alternative.

Posted on June 7, 2010 | No CommentsMotorola today announced their latest Android offering, the Milestone XT270, which is basically a Milestone/Droid with an updated camera, HDMI out, and no QWERTY keyboard. The removal of the keyboard makes the device a perfectly pocketable 10.9mm thick (down from 13.7mm on the original Milestone). Sound good? Follow the read link for more details and a hands-on video courtesy of SlashGear.
Motorola Milestone XT720 announced: 8 megapixel cam, 720p video, and Droid heritage (update: video!)Posted on June 7, 2010 | No CommentsXT720, a handset intended to grab the attention of camera lovers with an 8 megapixel sensor, 720p / 24fps video and -- a first for Android handsets -- a xenon flash. Speaking of Android, this will come loaded up with version 2.1 when it launches later this month. Plans for 2.2 upgrades are, as usual, not yet formalized and not under discussion. Other specs include a 3.7-inch, 480 x 854 screen, a 550MHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU, and a promised 9 hours of talk time and 320 hours of standby time. It looks very much like Moto's selection of Droid-esque handsets that have been prowling the Chinese market, and it seems the company has enjoyed success with the keyboard-less form factor and is pushing it out to Europe. US release plans are also not being discussed -- it might happen and it might not, seems to us like it'll depend on the Euros' reaction. We're just getting to grips with the handset right now, and will furnish you with video of it as soon as we can.
P.S. We're told this handset is closer to the Motoroi than anything else, Motorola describes them as sister devices. We also spotted a network update from Orange on the demo handset, implicating it as a possible carrier for the XT720 in the UK.
Update: We've now got Motorola's full press release plus a promo video after the break, as well as some comparison pics between this new handset and the original Milestone in the second gallery below.
Update 2: And we've just added our hands-on impressions and video, you know where to find them. Permalink | Email this | Comments
Posted on May 6, 2010 | No CommentsAlthough I'm sure you're used to the disappointment by now, it pains me to tell you this: the Sprint Hero won't be getting its much-hoped-for update to Android 2.1 this Friday. A Sprint Community Administrator has closed the thread where the original rumour surfaced, stating:
"Closing this thread because I don’t want folks to think that 2.1 is coming out on the 7th."So, there you go. Pick your heart off of the floor, and go back to your shattered Android dreams (of electric sheep).
Posted on May 6, 2010 | No CommentsThis post here is for all our UK readers. Your prized Motorola Milestone (that's "Droid" to all you yanks) has just been given a most precious gift: an update to Android 2.1, affectionately known as "eclair". Now, this isn't as revolutionary an upgrade as all those late-to-the-party Hero owners are about to get (because they're coming from Android 1.5, affectionately known as "old"), but it's still nice to know your running the latest firmware. Well, at least until Froyo comes along.
