Who doesn’t like to hear about new cell phones about to be releases? I think it’s pretty safe to say that we here at DHTG thrive on news of upcoming cell devices. No matter what carrier or OS, we are all ears. Lucky for us, CES is an answer to our prayers. With so many breaking new devices, one that came down the pike is another Verizon Droid model, the Motorola Droid Bionic. The sure to be Motorola “flagship device” Verizon’s heavily advertised series of phones seems to be getting a nice upgrade with this model. Also with Verizon announcing its 4G LTE market; this phone will be one of their new devices that use this new type of fast data. Read more: Geek Preview: Verizon’s Motorola Droid Bionic
Verizon Says “Bye Bye Bye” to Early Upgrades and “NE2″ Incentives

Did you realize that if you were to buy either a new 55” LED 1080p HD TV or the latest laptop, as soon as you get to your car it is already viewed as “old technology?” In the age of technology, electronics are definitely getting better by the month, and this is extremely the case of a smart phone. With new smart phones coming out almost weekly, it is hard to decide on what phone is the most current with todays’ technology. So to fix this worry is to just do a simple early upgrade from your cell phone carrier, that is except one, Verizon. Seems that Verizon forgot to get rid of the “Scrooge” mentality of last month and is now discontinuing their “Early Upgrade” policy to the primary account holder, effective January 16th. This comes as a shock due to the fact that we are a go for CES and Verizon is set to launch a few of its eagerly anticipated 4G phones.

I have a question for you. Who is still using a traditional cell phone and not a smart phone of any kind? Hopefully the number of traditional cell phones are pretty low. 2010 was a huge year for smart phone sales, especially when it came to Android OS. One of the manufactures that helped this cause was Samsung. Since its Galaxy S launch, Samsung had been selling many devices due to their AMOLED screens and other nice features. Because of this, Samsung has officially stated that they have sold their 10 millionth Galaxy S device, in a shorter time period then expected.

Hard to believe that it was a little over a year ago that the Android OS, with the help of Verizon and the Droid campaign, that the Android Market had only 5,000 apps. Since then, the plattform has made leaps and bounds and has become possibly the most popular branded smartphone OS. With the open software initiative, tons of makers of devices and a VERY loyal crowd of followers, Android has really made a name for itself. So from the days of a small amount of “popular” and amount of apps, the Android Market has landed its 200,000 app in its market, as reported by AndroLib.
Android has doubled its app count from 100,000 in just a two month span as reported in late October 2010. This app count has not been offcially recognized by Google, but anyways, this is a tremendous accomplishment for Android. The leader of apps, iOS or Apple, did not achieve this amount of apps this quickly when it hit this magic number. So the question is, what is Android doing right to capture the “most apps” crown?
