NEW YORK--It's baaaack. Motorola brought back its Razr line but in a more powerful package, with the introduction of Motorola Droid Razr for Verizon Wireless.
Measuring just 7.1mm thick, the Droid Razr is made from Kevlar fiber and features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD touch screen with scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. Despite its thin profile, the Android Gingerbread smartphone doesn't skimp on the features, packing in a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4G LTE capabilities, and 1GB RAM.

When I first saw the 44-page reviewer's guide that shipped with Fusion Garage's Grid10 review unit, I knew at the very least that I was in for an interesting experience.
Now, I love new and innovative technology. Well, I'm supposed to love it at least. Truth is, I only love new and innovative when it's executed well. New and innovative can go stuff it if it's frustrating to use.

Yes, it's that time of year again: time for the annual Apple iPhone harvest. This time, it's the iPhone 4S, which looks a lot like the old model, but with some pretty substantial improvements. We also discuss last week's CTIA trade show where we saw several new Android handsets, and Jessica witnessed phone destruction at the hands of Nokia. We also look forward to tomorrow's triple-event extravaganza: BlackBerry DevCon, the Motorola/Verizon event in New York, and the Samsung/Google event in Hong Kong. And last but not least, we say a fond farewell to Bonnie … Read more
When it comes to GPS-based friend-finding apps, you either love them or you don't.
Google has been a big believer on its Android platform for some time, integrating Google Latitude into all of its Android phones. Apple's iOS 5 update brings a separate downloadable app, Find My Friends (shortened to Find Friends once it installs).
In many cases, it's another iOS 5 feature that's very similar to those existing on rival mobile platforms, but there are some features all its own. This weekend, I buddied up with some CNET friends to see how Find My Friends … Read more
We didn't think it would take this long, but somebody finally exploited the iPhone 4S to catch a cheater using the new Find My Friend app on iOS 5.
The scary part of this story, though, is how easy it is to use GPS to lurk on your S.O. using Google Latitude or any one of these mobile spy apps.In that same vein, today we're chatting about our favorite tech pranks along with the latest news headlines that include BlackBerry freebies, iPhone record breaking, cell phone bill shock, and a fishy story out of Sesame Street.
The Sony Reader PRS-T1--a speedy e-book device with a 6-inch e-Ink screen--natively uses a heavily modified version of Android. Unfortunately, the majority of the OS is inaccessible by the user.
Make that, "was" inaccessible.
In advance of tomorrow's Motorola press conference in New York, more information is leaking out about the expected Droid Razr for Verizon Wireless.

As product announcements go that's quite a few pieces of the puzzle already. But as we wait for the additional details, let's take a quick peek at what might be on tap for the big unveiling. … Read more
We're less than 48 hours away from finding out for certain, but it looks as though Ice Cream Sandwich will feature photo-editing tools at the platform level.
If a number of uncovered camera icons are to be believed, the next build of Android could make it much easier to touch up photos. AndroidPolice, who initially discovered these icons, indicates that users will have the ability to perform standard editing techniques and apply effects to pictures without the need to download additional software. … Read more
