While the original Motorola DROID — which is coming up on its third anniversary this November — isn’t anywhere near being the hot device to acquire, it still enjoyed a rich year or so atop the ranks of Android devices.

OG Motorola Droid Receives Android 4.0 (Again) – This Time In A Less Alpha Alpha [Video]

Still hanging on to that aging Motorola Droid? Feels weird not having a number or surname after the “Droid” title but if you’re still waiting for a price drop on that superphone you’ve been eying, you may want to try out Android 4.0 in the meantime. Apparently, Ice Cream Sandwich has come a long way […]

Motorola Droid Tastes Ice Cream Sandwich

At what point will people stop trying to shoehorn new Android versions onto the original Motorola Droid? We applaud the effort and the if-it’s-possible-we-will-do-it spirit of the Android community, but will there really be any use in having Android 5.0 or maybe even 6.0 on a device that started showing its age when it never […]

Hey Google, Why No Nexus Love for Verizon?

When Motorola, Google, and Verizon teamed up for the launch of the original Droid smartphone during the holiday season of 2009, the course of Android was forever changed. The phone shipped with top-of-the-line specs for its day and featured a stock build of Android 2.0 Eclair. Its life as the first and only device with […]

Peter Alfonso Brings Android 2.3.4 to the Classic Motorola Droid

Yeah, that’s right. I called it a classic…and why not? It is pretty much an unspoken truth that original Motorola Droid has come about as far as it can. Those still using the handset (myself included) can hold out hope all they want, but it is unlikely we will ever see an official Gingerbread build […]

Cvpcs Joins Cyanogenmod: Droid1, Droid 2, & Droid X To Enjoy Longer Lives

One great capability you’ll get from rooting your phone is a longer life span. Phones like the T-Mobile G1 are not only alive and kicking, but working pretty darn well thanks to Rooting and ROMing which allow for old phones to run quicker and more efficient versions of the operating system. Cyanogenmod is by far […]

Droid Incredible and OG Droid Next to Make the Gingerbread List

Not even a week after 2.3 was officially merged into the AOSP and we are on our second hand’s worth of Devices with Gingerbread. It’s shaping up to be quite the winter wonderland, after all!

Motorola Droid 2.2.1 Update Now Rolling Out
