Motorola Droid Might Run on Android OS 2.2 by Middle of the Month

The much hyped and celebrated mobile phone operating system from the IT giant Google is now going to be on the latest Motorola phone. There has been a lot of anticipation regarding the mobile phone which comes with the next age OS after the monopoly of Symbian in Nokia. Till now, the only phone to have the new operating system was Google Nexus. This time the new Motorola Droid will be loaded with the extremely robust Android OS 2.2. The news of the next phone is out. However, the correct and precise date of the launch has not yet been communicated. It’s presumed to be around middle of the month. With the competition growing in the telecommunication front, it is exciting to see which phone brand launches the Android compatible phones first.

As communicated by the top sources of Motorola, the Droid will be based on the Android OS and will be loaded with some highly promising features. There are lot of rumors and few facts rolling out in the tech geek community. Unsupervised reports indicate that Verizon will begin sending out this upgrading within two weeks. In case the details provided that the leaking out of Verizon is accurate, the new Droid will be receiving its’ improvements on Tuesday July 13. The foundation for this account points out that informal but steady version of this ROM have by now come into view on the internet.

Seeing the elite features of the incredible operating system by Google, we may assume that the Motorola Droid is going to be huge success. The so called failure of the Google Nexus phone further increases the probability of the Droid being a huge hit. The OS gives amazing capabilities to share the internet connection (3G) with help of its Wi-Fi capability. There are also provisions to contain portable hotspot software and tethering. This is indeed a first of its’ kind innovation in the mobile phone operating system. There are also rumors that Verizon will be charging around 20 dollars per month for the 3G Wi-Fi connection sharing service.

Android OS 2.2 is necessary to execute the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 on various mobile phones. It facilitates the ability to view websites compatible with flash and also play flash games, view flash applications and also watch full length videos seamlessly on the web. This new version also holds a quantity of other minute enhancements; however none of the improvements considerably alter the platform.

The Motorola Droid is indeed a significant phone from the company and it will boost its’ overall image and standing in the mobile phone industry. It has some splendid features like a large, high-resolution Touch screen and a horizontal QWERTY keyboard. Even though it has wide screen it is quite slim and elegant in look.

Since it runs on the Google OS it has wireless synchronization compatibility with the various Google applications like Gmail, Maps, and Calendar and also supports Microsoft Exchange. There are also several Third Party Applications supported, with a GPS receiver, 5 mega pixel camera and 16 GB extendible memory slot.

Siri Has Been Bought Up By Apple

Apple is continuing to run ahead of the pack in the world of mobile devices. This is regardless of the increased competition from Motorola’s Droid. A big news item that shows how Apple is advancing comes from its latest acquisition. Apple has recently bought up the Siri mobile application development company.

The Siri application is a truly unique material that can work on one’s iPhone. What happens here is that a user can enter in a query through the application and get a response for a variety of different things. A person can get information on local restaurants, how to get a taxi cab in an area and what the weather will be in an area. Details on concerts, movie showtimes and other events where one is at can also be retrieved. A person can even get information on flights through the application.

It is an application that is especially receptive to different questions. A person can speak into one’s iPhone or enter in a question to the application. The application will then identify the query and then retrieve an answer. For example, a person can ask about what movies are playing at a movie theater that one lives near. Information on all movies playing at that particular theater and their show times will then be retrieved.

The program also works with preferences that a user has set up. These include preferences that relate to where a person lives and the time that has been set on the mobile device.

The application was developed through the Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes project that has been handled over the years by SRI International. The project itself was financed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. SRI has confirmed the transaction but is not saying much as to what is going on with the deal.

Today this application is available for free to iPhone and iPod Touch users. It has been available for free since it was first featured at the All Things Digital conference back in 2009.

It is not fully known as to what Apple plans on doing with the Siri application. Information on the value of the acquisition is not available either. However, this is the second news item that relates to acquisitions by Apple in two days. Apple acquired the Intrinsity chipmaker company a day before acquiring the Siri application. This is a transaction that is at least $120 million in value.

Apple does have enough money to work with this transaction though. Apple is reporting that it received more than forty billion dollars in cash at the end of its second fiscal quarter for the year. This is something that could be the sign that this may not be the last acquisition that Apple could be making in the near future.

This news item from Apple is a sign that the company is looking to continue to make forward strides in the world of technology. This is a transaction that shows how Apple is looking to add to the many features and functions that the iPhone and other mobile devices from the company can use.
