It's hard to imagine life without our iPhones--let alone GPS, apps, an HD camera and a retina display. But before the RAZR, the BlackBerry and even the StarTAC, there was an unlikely phrase that gave rise to the notion that mobile radios will be able to make calls across countries and oceans: Over and out.
It is believed that Motorola could release a new Droid device on Verizon come June 23. The new device, according to Engadget, could go head-to-head with the iPhone 4, which is set to launch just a day after this rumored device is to launch. No one is certain of the exact device rumored to be launched, but two blogs claim to have had hands-on time with it.
In the year 1 B.iP. (Before iPhone), all a smartphone was expected to
deliver was the ability to email on the go, sort of browse the
Internet, and maybe have two or three simple games to help pass the
time. Smartphone OSs were updated with the same frequency as
presidential elections, and the idea of one of those devices playing
nice with your Mac was laughable. Of course, once the iPhone hit the
market, smartphone makers scrambled to catch up. The Motorola Droid is
a prime example of that scrambling attempt to dethrone the iPhone as
the king of smartphones.
