New dual-core CPU makes Droid X2 is able to load web pages faster and ... wireless,android,verizon,new motorola,dual-core,qhd,reviews,tegra,camera ... which is the successor DROID X. The new phone is powered by a 1GHz. The Motorola Droid X2 is a 4.3-inch Android phone with a 1Ghz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. But, we've given it a full hands-on review.
While the basic Droid X phone designed by Motorola has received a great deal of positive reviews, the new version benefits from the increased processing power provided by the dual core technology. The exterior design of Motorola Droid X2 is virtually unchanged from its previous version, as it is still the same slick and thin framework you have grown accustomed to. On the other hand, the Droid X2 now comes equipped with a powerful 8 MP camera and a double LED flash. As far as connectivity is concerned, the X2 is still a 3G phone, though loyal customers were expecting this model to be part of the 4G revolution. While the lack of LTE connectivity can be quite a letdown, this 200-dollar android phone more than makes up for it with its other features.

• Medium sized 8GB memory card with the possibility of upgrading it to 32GB;

What we like
Definitely one of the best features of the Droid X2,
the Tegra 2 dual core processor is able to deliver access to both online
and offline applications much faster than similar gadgets and
almost twice as fast as its Droid X predecessor.
Moreover, thanks to the advanced processor,
the data transfer time is significantly decreased
and even complex websites can be accessed in no time at all. In addition,
the Motorola Droid X2 comes with a preinstalled Skype application,
enabling you to make cheaper calls from the designated Verizon Hotspots.
The battery life of this smartphone is another great advantage,
especially if you keep in mind that it is still a 3G phone with a dual core processor.
The intensive testing it has been subjected to has shown quite good performance,
even when the device is used for tedious tasks. In addition,
the benchmarking has shown pretty impressive results compared to similarly priced devices.
As far as the display is concerned,
the Droid X2 is capable of rendering 960×540 resolution in an astounding 24-bit depth.
At the same time, the Motorola Droid X2 comes with the innovative SWYPE system,
which enables users to increase their typing speed dramatically.
What we don’t like
For one thing, not all customers are comfortable with the bulged shape of
the Droid X2 framework,
as it can be a bit uncomfortable when stuffed into tight pants.
On the other hand, bulge is only located in the upper part of the smartphone and
the rest of the framework is rather thin and sleek. In addition,
the lack of LTE connectivity has proven a bit disappointing,
as 4G connections have grown quite a bit in popularity over the last years.
The Motorola Droid X2 is the kind of gadget for customers
who require a lot of processing power and a long battery life.
While it has several entertainment-related applications,
the Droid X2 seems to be the smartphone of choice for business purposes.
In a nutshell
Droid X2 offers a great number of improvements from its predecessors,
even though it is not compatible with LTE networking.
If you are looking for a powerful smartphone with a sleek design and quality craftsmanship,
then the Motorola Droid X2 is definitely a good choice.

Have you ever wondered what gadgets will be like in 5 years time? HP recently did and came up with a. Gadgets in 2012. New Gadgets Of 2012 on Futuristic Technology Industrial Product Design IndyLabs. New Gadgets 2011 2012 - new gadgets budget 2011 latest news from india union budget 2011 201related for new gadgets for 2012 on futuristic technology.
Have you ever wondered what gadgets will be like in 5 years time? HP recently did and came up with a number of drawings and ideas as to what we might be using in 2012. The first is this HP laptop which can be seen above. It has virtual keys, is razor thin and is featherweight. Hopefully virtual keyboards will be easier to use in 5 years time as currently they suck.
Next in line is the Media Mat which is a roll up screen. Flexible screens are becoming available recently but tend to be in grey scale and do not have a fast refresh rate. The screen above is full colour and should be able to roll right up to be stored away when not in use.
Communication is key with current times. Devices need to be able to connect together to share information so that appointments are not missed and family are a button press away. This watch is what ties all these devices together. It is a wireless hub which communicates with the laptop, roll up screen and the other gadgets and allows you to see at a glance what is happening.
With the amount of credit cards available these days it is time to have your wallet updated. This wallet features a screen inside which actually makes it in to a digital wallet. The screen allows you to control your finances with in the wallet and to see exactly what comes in and goes out each day. Again, another great idea which links up to the watch to show your current balance.
Of course we all need a tablet PC while we are on the go taking notes in meetings etc... The HP tablet just like the laptop is razor thin and very light weight. As can be seen the design work is very modern and just right for what we might see in 2012. I do have to wonder though if all these devices need to be used in 5 years time or if a collection of them all converging together will be made making most obsolete.
The Shelf has to be one of my favorites. It is not an ordinary shelf, but a shelf in that when a device is placed on it, the device will charge automatically with out connecting wires. This is of course very useful for now, but I wonder what kind of battery charging we will need if fuel cells become more popular which can keep a laptop going for 10+ hours and be instantly charged by topping them up.
The smart pen is capable of writing on any surface and then storing what was just written in to its memory so you can download it later.
Overall I am impressed with the ideas put forward by HP although most, if not all is not new technology but rather a nice mixture of what we have now, shrunk down a little and made to look good. The idea of having all the devices together is good, but at the same time we are seeing a lot of devices being built together such as the Phone/MP3 and pocket computer in 1 device.

About 10 years ago, we didn’t really expect the 1.4mb 3.5 inch floppy to evolve into flash drives 10x smaller with storage capacity as big as 32gb. The interesting thing about technology is; it’s just going to get more and more high-end but the size, is just going to get smaller and slimmer.
These concept gadgets you see before you today, have extremely high chance of getting into production anywhere in the future. For example, Microsoft’s Surface Computing Technology certainly tells us they are for real. Here’s some really cool concept gadgets, just concepts for now but we really hope it’ll be implemented, that inspires. If we happened to missed something impressive, please let us know in comment. Full list after jump.
