The 10 worst Android phones of all time

We thought it’d be fun to think about what the worst Android phones have been so far. My colleagues and I have had a fun time putting this list together and talking about what awarded each device’s spot in this list. Come check out some of the worst Android phones of all time!

AT&T Soon to Drop Motorola Backflip, Xperia X10

It looks like two rather lackluster Android handsets are meeting their demise on AT&T in the coming months. The Motorols Backflip will reach end-of-life on February 2nd, while the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will do the same come March 6th. Both phones fell short of anything spectacular, so it is questionable how much they will […]

[Update] Motorola Backflip on AT&T Receives Android 2.1 Upgrade

[Update]: Disregard everything I’ve said below. You can not get this update over the air, but Android 2.1 is still available. (Sorry for the confusion, guys.

Testers Needed for Motorola Backflip Android 2.1 Upgrade

Motorola Updates Android Software Upgrades Chart

Motorola has once again revised their software upgrade chart to reflect the latest timeline for their Android devices to receive their respective updates. Most notably the Motorola Quench has been deemed unfit for an upgrade after a previous iteration of the chart said its Android 2.1 update was “under evaluation” as well as the international […]

BACKFLIP Rooted Using Droid 2’s Method

Sharing is caring, or so says Motorola’s catalog of Android smartphones. After we learned that the Droid X’s and Droid 2’s root methods were one in the same, some other nifty hackers owning the Motorola BACKFLIP confirmed the exact exploit and method worked for their AT&T-branded device. Now I’m wondering if all of Motorola’s phones […]

Telus Accepting 200 Participants for BACKFLIP Software Upgrade, Not Eclair

Telus is getting ready to roll out another OTA upgrade (which still isn’t Android 2.1, unfortunately) for their Motorola BACKFLIP and they’re looking for 200 participants to help test the upgrade and provide feedback on the process and changes. It’s going to be a game of chance as they’re offering it OTA until they’ve reached […]

More and more Android smartphones are heading to or being announced for the Indian market.

Over the weekend, it appears that Motorola has updated their chart outlining upgrades for several of their Android-based phones. Most phones are still only planned to be receiving Android 2.1 (Motorola Droid’s rollout has finished, while the Milestone is still currently being rolled out in stages for other international markets). For the Motorola Backflip, they’re […]

Motorola BACKFLIP Now Available on TELUS

We recently reported the Motorola BACKFLIP would be headed to TELUS, and what a short wait it was with the handset being announced for immediate availability today. The BACKFLIP is bringing MOTOBLUR along for the ride, along with its reverse-hinged 3.1″ HVGA capacitive touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard. It will be available for $99.99 on a […]

TELUS the First Canadian Carrier to Receive MOTOBLUR with the Backflip

Last month, Motorola announced that Canadians on the country’s major carriers would be receiving three MOTBLUR phones – the DEXT, the Backflip, and the QUENCH.
