A few days back we shared with you a couple of images of an Android powered phone that were thought of Nexus One successor, more commonly referred to as Nexus Two. More details have emerged which are on the official lines. Motorola CEO has sort of confirmed the Nexus two.
A few days back, we shared with you the news of Motorola Droid officially getting Flash 10.1 support in the near future. We have got more stuff in relation to that. Adrian Ludwig has come up with a short demo that shows the Flash Player 10.1 running on the highly advertised and commercialized Droid from Motorola. See the demo video after the jump.
It has been just around 10 days since the official launch of Google’s Nexus One and already talks have started surfacing regarding the next version of Google Phone more commonly referred to as Nexus Two. Folks at Mobile01 have done the honors of sharing a couple of photos of Nexus 2 which is called Motorola Shadow. It includes a QWERTY keyboard and a wrist strap as apparent from the image shown below.
Nexus One, as we all know is the latest Android phone and is also the first device to come with the new Android 2.1 OS. Other phones, like the Droid, are going to get it too. There is good news for you people as Android 2.1 SDK is now available for download, you can play with it as much as you can, or you need to have Nexus One.
Attention all Motorola Droid owners, it has come to our knowledge that Verizon’s Droid has a security flaw no thanks to a bug found in the Android 2.0.1. Apparently it is affecting only those Droids that are running on top of Android 2.0.1. This bug has a direct affect on the Android powered handset’s screen lock mechanism. Via this bug, a thief can get access to your mobile phone based data even if you have locked your screen. (Details after the jump)
We all know the edge Motorola Milestone (European version of Droid) has over Motorola Droid – the former is multi-touch enabled gadget. Same is the case with Nexus One – the European edition is the multi-touch version of Android based phone. Germany’s Heise has received a Nexus One mobile phone which apparently is multi-touch friendly. It just makes you wonder what’s going on? Will the US based Nexus One get multi-touch support in the near future or should I say the immediate future?
Motorola has announced that they will definitely be bringing Android 2.1 to both the Motorola Droid & Motorola Cliq. Which means Droid and Cliq users should be able to enjoy all the good things like Nexus One. It’s also a matter of interest that Motoblur and Android 2.1 should interact. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha,showed up at the end of the show to take a few questions and he said that Droid and Cliq will soon be getting Android 2.1.
Wait, it doesn’t end here for Droid. Motorola has been working on Flash 10.1 integration and has optimized it for the Droid chipset, which means Droid will soon have official Flash support. On top of that, the Droid should get a second maintenance update in the near future.
It would be a surprise if Motorola doesn’t release a firmware update for the Droid/Milestone in the coming weeks.
