    Motorola Admiral Review: Durable Make, Solid Features

    While the touchscreen slate form factor has emerged as the standard for today’s smartphones, the Blackberry-style QWERTY candy bar remains a preferred design among a big segment of mobile workers.  And the Motorola Admiral offers one of the better devices for that specific crowd. Physically, it looks very industrial, despite the rounded corners and curved edges.  It’s not a looker, but it does mirror what it’s supposed to be — a workhorse phone.  Construction feels […]

    Motorola Flipout: Cute Phone, Midrange Performance

    Handsets bearing that cute square form factor are usually feature phones, designed for heavy messaging users.  The Motorola Flipout departs from the norm, putting a full-featured Android smartphone inside the pudgy frame. Physically, the device sports 2.64 x 2.65 x 0.67 inch dimensions, allowing it to fit even in smaller pockets.   Despite the compact stature, the hardware’s overall construction feels sturdy.  Instead of sliding to reveal the QWERTY keyboard, it uses a swivel mechanism, similar […]

     
  • Motorola Charm Puts Android In A QWERTY Candybar

    Motorola Charm Puts Android In A QWERTY Candybar

    Want an Android phone, don’t need a touchscreen slab?   You may want to give the Motorola Charm an audition. Clad in a slim QWERTY candybar form factor, it’s easy to mistake it for a Blackberry clone.  It’s not the sleekest messaging-style handset we’ve seen, but it does have its own…uhm…charm.  The squared-off 2.8-inch touchscreen (320 x 240 resolution) feels too small for viewing most webpages, but it does work fine for most other uses.  It’s […]

    Motorola Cliq XT Is Fast And Brings A Better Music Player To Android

    Most people are likely to dismiss the Motorola Cliq XT as nothing but a slightly updated version of the original Cliq from last year. While that may be true to an extent, this device actually deserves better recognition as it improves upon its predecessor in many ways. Heck, they could have named it something else and it wouldn’t have been such an issue. Physically, the most noticeable change from the Cliq is the omission of […]

     
  • HTC Legend: A Sexier, Even Better Hero

    HTC Legend: A Sexier, Even Better Hero

    At the time it came out, the HTC Hero was, by far, the best Android phone on the block. With the HTC Legend, the manufacturer took everything good about that handset and made it even better. Physically, it looks a lot like the Hero, down to the trademark chin. The body is cut from a single piece of aluminum (taking a bite out of Apple’s aesthetic), making it both more attractive and durable at the […]

    Motorola Backflip Offers Unique Design, Great Music And Performance Issues

    Sometimes, a unique design may be all you need to sell a new handset.  That could be what they’re banking on with the Motorola Backflip, a smartphone with various physical innovations that you might find enticing (or retarded, whichever the case may be). Physically, the unique flip design definitely makes it a noteworthy device.  While it looks like the Motorola Cliq at first glance, look closer and you’ll see the huge differences.  When closed, the […]

    Motorola Devour Is Like A Lesser But Slightly Sexier Droid

    Loved the Droid?  Meet its little brother, the Motorola Devour.  While not exactly the same top-of-the-line smartphone as its predecessor, the company’s third official Android release brings plenty to be happy about. Physically, it borrows the same form factor as the Droid, is about the same size and weighs almost just as heavy.   It does put the extra heft to good use, boasting both sturdy construction and a great feel in hand.  The extruded aluminum […]

    Motorola Devour Announced For Verizon Wireless, Comes With Touchscreen, QWERTY And MotoBlur

    Talk about piling up the Android releases.  That’s definitely the case with Motorola, who has officially announced the Motorola Devour, their latest smartphone running Google’s open-source OS.  Set for release under Verizon, it will be the carrier’s first Motoblur-equipped device. As it did in the Motorola Cliq, MotoBlur will bring its unique and customizable content delivery service to the new handset.  Aggregating information from Gmail, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other sources, it streams updates directly […]
