Hey guys, again CES hit us with very good news for all android lovers! Dazzboard presented their software named "Dazzboard",
being a software to synch with android phones, providing iTunes integration and app-management like iTunes,for iProducts, as well as far more to come.
One cool feature is your data, being available all over the world, just needing an internet connection on a pc.The data will be stored in a "user space" on the publishers servers, providing everything needed at all time. How much space there will be and how much it will cost, is unknown yet.
For windows user, a beta version is available through the website, mac users will have to wait a little longer, but the application is announced to arrive soon.
Also very interesting is Dazzboards interaction with Google, AOL, Yahoo! and MySpace accounts as well as media interaction with Facebook Flickr and Youtube.
As you may have noticed DroidForums.net has a newly updated look! We are very proud of the site and how well it's grown from our humble beginnings just a couple of months ago and this is all possible because of the amazing members the community has.
DroidForums.net has been the fastest growing forum I've seen in my internet years and it has developed also into a very friendly and informative community. Lots of our users have devoted hours every day to helping each other and for that we are all grateful. We have surpassed the 25,000 member mark and the future looks bright!
With growth comes change and we hope you will find the new "skin" on the site appealing. However, if you don't you can always switch back to the old skin by going to your User CP -> Edit Options and then scroll down to the bottom and select your Forum Skin (the old version is the Droid v1) the current is Droid v2.

Don't worry Droid & Cliq owners, you're not going to be left in the dark. Motorola also announced that they'll be bringing both the Motorola Droid & Motorola Cliq to Android 2.1. Which means we should be able to enjoy all the goodies that made the Nexus Oneso jaw-droppingly sexy on our Motorola Android phones. We're definitely interested in seeing Motoblur and Android 2.1 interact, but that's a discussion for another day.
But the news doesn't stop there for Droid owners. Not only will they receive Android 2.1 but Motorola has been working on Flash 10.1 integration and has optimized it for the Droid chipset, which means yes, your Droid will soon have official Flash support. On top of that, the Droid should get a second maintenance update in the near future. Score big for Droid.
Since yesterday wasn't such a good day to be a Droid owner, today is shaping up totally different! What do you guys think?
The press conference was very interesting and we found out a few things that no one was expecting. The phone was pretty much what had been reported, so nothing new there... but we did find out that Google Earth would be out for the Android 2.1 platform and I had not seen that anywhere previously.
In addition, Google hit us with the fact that both Verizon and Vodaphone (and during the Q&A session they mentioned other carriers will be coming soon as soon as they can integrate the ordering system with carrier IT infrastructure to make it a seamless ordering experience) very soon.
So, you'll be able to use this phone probably by Spring of 2010 with every major carrier in the world. Just a hunch but the hardware obviously can be adapted to work with all carriers.
You can order your phone today and it will ship today and includes free FedEx overnight shipping if you order the unlocked version. T-Mobile ordering was not available at the time I made my purchase so I picked up an unlocked version.
The Nexus One is being unveiled officially today at 10AM Pacific (1PM Eastern) at Google headquarters in Mountain View, CA and our sister site Nexus One Forum - Google Phone Forum will be covering all the action!
Make sure to stop by and see all the coverage and new updates that Google's got up their sleeve for this platform!
New information and a picture has surfaced of a silver Motorola Calgary / Droid Devour. This device is still rumored to be for the Verizon network however a release date has not been confirmed. Boy Genius Reports:
