Rumor has it LG Optimus Pad will run Android 3.0 Honeycomb on dual-core Tegra 2

by 16 comments

LG (like pretty much every tech company around) has been working on a tablet of their own. But they made a hard choice – Android 2.2 Froyo is just not suitable for tablets they said (Google said the same thing) and even though the hardware was ready, the tablet got delayed, waiting on the software.

And Android 3.0 Honeycomb seems to be it – a new leak gives us a peek at some juicy details of the LG tablet, or the LG Optimus Pad, as it will be called… Read more »

DROID 2 Global leaks through the official Motorola US website

by 16 comments

We are pretty sure someone in the Motorola’s US division screwed up big time uploading the DROID 2 Global info on the site before the official announcement. The page was removed almost instantly but most of the information has already escaped in the wild.

The successor of the Verizon’s DROID 2 – DROID 2 Global – is a dual mode CDMA/GSM device with slightly improved specs. It will pack the world’s first 1.2GHz mobile processor and will sport a redesigned QWERTY keyboard.

It seems Verizon’s latest DROID is going global. Don’t get this wrong, DROID 2 Global is still a Verizon-only device, it’s just capable of working on GSM networks too.
