Blog Android and Me is the first to be graced with a preview of Motorola’s Droid 2, which looks like its predecessor (except for the re-worked keypad) but internally is housing a beastly 1GHz TI OMAP3630 processor (Droid has 550MHz TI OMAP343) with integrated PowerVR SGX530 graphics and 512Mb RAM (over 256Mb in the Droid). Benchmarks conducted show that the Droid 2 is substantially faster than the original, which is still one of the more powerful smartphones out there. More »

MobileSyrup has the Rogers branded unit in its hands (likely from a Best Buy employee). The mid-range Samsung Galaxy Spica should be hitting store shelves in a few weeks, but no prices have been published. Based on the Telus Motorola Milestone’s release, I would expect Rogers to sell the Galaxy Spica for well under $600, but who knows? More »

By nprussell, VillainROM 1.2 is an Android 2.1 ROM with HTC Sense UI enabled for the Hero. HTC is not releasing a patched version of 2.0 until March, and there is no word on 2.1, so VillainROM 1.2 is the only way to experience Eclair 2.1 on your GSM Hero for now. CDMA versions (Sprint and Telus) are not supported. More »

Motorola has announced that the first South Korean Android 2.0 smartphone, the Motoroi will be available in February, with a planned American launch one month afterwards.
