Forums Added for the RAZR M, Galaxy Note 2, Kindle Fire HD7, and Kindle Fire 2

What a week it’s been for technology. First, we took a peak at Motorola’s announcement, in which details were presented about Windows Phone 8 and some upcoming devices. Among them was the Droid RAZR M, which is the successor to the original Droid RAZR. While it features mid-range specs by today’s standards, it’s certainly no slouch. It features a 4.3″ screen packing in 960 x 540 pixels, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, a gig of RAM, a 2000 mAh battery, and most importantly, it comes preloaded with Ice Cream Sandwich.

Motorola’s event wasn’t the only source of excitement, as Amazon introduced two new models to the Kindle Fire line. In addition to the much anticipated Kindle Fire HD 8.9″, which will ship in late November, they also saw fit to update their 7″ model. The Kindle Fire HD 7, which will ship later this week, features a 1280 x 800 7″ IPS panel, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2 GHz dual-core OMAP 4460 processor, and a heavily modified version of Ice Cream Sandwich. They also gave a minor facelift to the standard Kindle Fire. Although the exact differences are unclear, Amazon states that the Kindle Fire 2 features twice the RAM, a beefier battery, and “40% faster performance.”

The successor to Samsung’s best-selling “phablet” was also given a home in our forums. The Galaxy Note 2, which should appear on store shelves next month, will feature a 1.6 GHz quad-core (most likely Exynos 4412) processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5.5″ 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED HD display, and a 3100 mAh battery. Most impressively, it will run Jelly Bean out of the box.

OnePlus DR-1 Quadcopter Drone Available for Purchase

OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
