Motorola DROID 3 QWERTY slider lands at Verizon

Motorola has officially unveiled the successor to the DROID 2 with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) powered DROID 3. Coming in at 0.5-in (13 mm) thick, Motorola is calling its new device the world's thinnest smartphone with a physical full QWERTY keyboard. Motorola's original DROID (a.k.a. Milestone, 2009) and the DROID 2 (2010) were both well-spec'd Android QWERTY sliders when introduced, so we wouldn't expect anything less with the DROID 3. It outshines its predecessor with a larger and higher resolution 4-inch qHD 960 x 540 touchscreen, doubles the internal storage to 16 GB and now includes a front facing camera for video calls.

New additions include rear and front-facing cameras, an iOS update, smart covers, and a built-in gyroscope. Sadly, the only advancement on the connectivity front was the addition of HDMI via an optional adapter, and the carbon-fiber housing rumor looks to have been just that, a rumor. Read More

Voice and video calls demoed over 4G Internet using LG Revolution smartphone

Last week Verizon Wireless announced that it had successfully placed its first voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) call over its 4G wireless data network using an LG Revolution 4G smartphone.

And because the calls are made over the 4G Web, much like VoIP calls, users are able to use the Internet while they’re on the phone – something that Verizon hasn’t been able to offer previously, unlike its competitors.
