AT&T was the first carrier to move to tiered, capped data plans for its smartphones, but the other big three carriers are expected to follow, someday. With the release of a new MyVerizon Android app, are we getting a hint from Verizon? The new version, 5.0, has a bunch of uses, but a new one that's been added is a handy dandy, widget to track your data use. Indeed we have unlimited data now (as the widget clearly says), but who knows how long that will last? Not long, if this is a hint. For Android newcomers, perhaps jumping on the bandwagon with the already backordered Motorola Droid X, to add the warning, er, informative widget to your home screen, long press on an area of the home screen...

According to a leak from Verizon's system, the carrier is planning to phase out the original Motorola DROID smartphone as well as the budget Devour. Both smartphones will get few, if any, more shipments as Verizon Wireless sells out its remaining stock. At this point, no estimate has been given as to when the phones will sell out, but neither phone is listed in Verizon's leaked summer catalog. DROID Forums spotted the departure, which also includes devices such as the original BlackBerry Tour, the Nokia Twist, and a few Samsung feature phones including the Intensity, Knack, Saga, and Smooth. The Motorola DROID became available last November. Although it may reach end of life less than a year... Read more...
Is this the showdown of the year? In the smartphone world, we would argue that it is. If you're looking for arguably the world's best 3G smartphones right now, you're likely considering two specific choices: Apple's iPhone 4 on AT&T, or HTC's DROID Incredible on Verizon Wireless. Both phones provide an excellent user experience, and both are as cutting edge as they come. Both they also offer very different and distinct experiences, with one coming by way of iOS 4 and the other Android 2.1 with HTC's Sense overlay. In other words, both of these devices are competing for the same crown, but each one is its own beast, with its own list of pros and cons. If you're in the market to upgrade your... Read more...

Verizon Wireless and HTC have a hit on their hands with the Droid Incredible. It's not only a very good Android phone, it's also one of the better smartphones on the market today. Verizon Wireless customers have some really great phone options, and the Incredible deserves to be at the top of the list. Certainly there are, and will be, a lot of powerful new phones coming to market in the coming months, including the Motorola Droid X, but when it comes to current high-end smartphones, the Droid Incredible is now arguably the Android smartphone to beat...

Synopsis by HotHardware Editor, Jennifer Johnson:  Verizon Wireless and HTC have a hit on their hands with the Droid Incredible. It's not only a very good Android phone, it's also one of the better smartphones on the market today.

One has to wonder if Verizon Wireless is worried at all about giving consumers too many options. It may sound far-fetched at first, but there's a growing number of high-end Android smartphones on Verizon's network, and while we understand the need to build up the arsenal in order to coax people to coming over in favor of the iPhone 4, it may be getting to the point where there's too much product overlap and confusion. But if the DROID, DROID Eris, DROID Incredible, DROID X and forthcoming DROID 2 just don't have what you're looking for, Samsung has a new device headed over to join those guys. The new Fascinate is the Verizon-branded Galaxy S, complete with a massive AMOLED touch panel, Android... Read more...
Motorola's DROID is a majorly powerful smartphone. Hardly anyone will argue that. But as of last week, there was still one thing that DROID couldn't do (despite the advertisements): V CAST. As of today, Verizon Wireless has added V CAST capabilities to the DROID, enabling users to watch and stream V CAST video right on their Android-powered handset. Univision Interactive Media will provide live streams of all 64 of its Spanish-language broadcasts of the 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer matches from South Africa exclusively to V CAST Video customers' mobile devices, and that's just one of the many events to come.  V CAST Video recently added programming from AETN, including A&E, Lifetime and...

Boy, Motorola has come a long way. The company skyrocketed into mobile fame with the introduction of the RAZR, but shortly fell off of the map by failing to follow that phone with something equally amazing. After years of waiting, Motorola delivered the DROID on Verizon Wireless, and suddenly, the company was back in business. The Motorola family of phones has continued to grow since, and today yet another new one was introduced: the MILESTONE XT720. It's the world's slimmest 8MP Android smartphone and the first-ever to have a Xenon flash. Android 2.1 is loaded on, and while that's the latest version, it's hard to swallow with Android 2.2 being announced last month at Google I/O. Other specifications... Read more...
The Android operating system has enjoyed a tremendous boom in popularity since the Motorola DROID was released. Since then, many additional Android-powered phones have come to market. One of the latest new Android phones is the Droid Incredible by HTC. The word "incredible" certainly invokes high expectations, so you can bet users will demand great things from this phone or there will be plenty of complaints. Given that the phone is made by HTC, a long-time and very popular player in the smartphone space, and the fact that the Incredible is hitched to Verizon Wireless' network, the phone certainly has a few things going for it...

We've witnessed reports suggesting that Android consumption is on the rise while iPhone use is slipping, and it's easy to see why: every other week a new Android phone hits the market, while Apple makes iPhone users wait a year or more to see new hardware. With so many Android options, it's pretty tempting to give at least one of these sexy devices a look. Today, Verizon Wireless and HTC have announced the latest Android smartphone, and on paper, it looks like a serious contender. The DROID Incredible really is one of the more incredible phones we've seen lately, and aside from the obvious lack of 4G support, it's nearly as good as Sprint's EVO 4G that was announced earlier in the year. Because... Read more...
Attention all Verizon Droid owners: The long-awaited Android 2.1 update is finally coming your way. An internal company email obtained by Engadget shows that the Android 2.1 operating system update will begin a slow rollout process starting today. According to the note, 1,000 users should have received the update by noon today. Another 9,000 users were scheduled to get the update at 11:59 ET. As for the rest of you? Well, you'll have to wait a full 24 hours before Verizon releases the software to 200,000 users. The updates will then continue to roll out once every 24 hours (at Midnight) to 200,000 users until all users have received the update. Verizon was initially suppose to upgrade the Droid...
