Motorola Rumored To Launch DROID RAZR HD And DROID RAZR MAXX HD In October

 

Motorola’s upcoming DROID RAZR HD sure is doing its best to tease us isn’t it? We’ve seen a leak here and another there… a benchmark here and another there. Heck, we even know it’s on its way sooner than we think because of how it just finished taking a stroll through the FCC. But now we may have a better indication of when exactly it is to arrive. According to Hot Hardware (via our friends at DROID Life), MOTO is intent on bringing not only the DROID RAZR HD smartphone— but the DROID RAZR MAXX HD variant as well sometime in October. The rumored October launch sounds about right because of the fact the original DROID RAZR was launched around that time last year. There’s also no word on what carrier(s) it will launch with, but given Motorola’s success with its DROID RAZR line on Verizon’s network, it’s probably a safe bet it will launch there first.

Naturally, this could be pure speculation and we may see the device launch earlier or even later. But we suspect Motorola doesn’t want to wait too long— especially with Apple expected to release its new phone next month and ummmm… Samsung’s hot-selling Galaxy S III dominating the market share.

Gmail Canned Respones reach Android via a third-party app – why hasn’t Google thought of this?


Though Google services work best with Android devices, there is a plethora of tricks and functionality the platform continues to lack. Canned responses is the perfect example of this; a feature used by a substantial amount of users, but also one that Google hasn’t brought to its native Gmail Android app.

The best option for using canned responses has simply been to use a browser to access your email. That, or simply using a computer. Regardless of your preference, both solutions are inconvenient when on-the-go. Especially in a world where smartphones and tablets are close to taking over the personal computer’s general duties. We would like Google to simply build in such features into its apps. Sadly, sometimes we just have to turn to third-party developers to finish these companies’ jobs.

Enter developer Martin Adamek, who has built a very handy app for managing and using canned responses mobile. The app Gmail Canned Responses BETA can’t replicate the simpler desktop utility, but it works amazingly as a middle man.

The app simply accesses the user’s Gmail account to pull off Gmail’s canned responses. After that, one can easily tap a single button to copy a canned response. And it is just as simple to paste it into the Gmail app (or any text box).

As mentioned, it is not a direct solution for the app’s lack of the feature, but it works great as a workaround. It certainly beats accessing Gmail through a browser or waiting until a computer is available. Download it now straight from the Google Play Store and get the job done. It is simple, saves time, and most importantly, it works.

AOSP Jelly Bean ROM now available for 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Nexus

If you’re tired of Verizon dragging their feet on an official update to Android 4.1 for their 4G LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Nexus, you might be interested in checking out a newly released ROM based off the JRO03L AOSP build. The code recently hit the AOSP servers and provides the purest Jelly Bean experience you could expect for the device. It’s more or less what you will get when an official update takes place. When that will happen is anyone’s guess, so if you aren’t averse to rooting your device and flashing some custom software heading to the XDA link below might be worth your while.
