The battery life is almost too good to be true, and if I didn’t see it for myself I wouldn’t believe it. Two hours of music, an accumulative hour texting, count one more for talking, then another hour for browsing and four more for goofing off and gaming, and I still had plenty of power left. With the phone I have now that would’ve needed a charge before I had time to finish my second-to-last dungeon for the day.

image thumb51 iPhone, iPad, Android Phones Trade In Available At AmazonIf you are not into selling your old gadgets simply because you don’t get a respectable price for it. I have major issues with ridding myself of these and I keep running out of space to keep these. Trade-in sites flourish all across the Web, but to have a reputable name doing this just makes things more trust worthy. Earlier, Amazon announced its trade-in program for electronic devices as well.

image thumb48 Motorola DROID 3 Images Leaked, What Is It Made Of?And so much for the rumors on the next generation of the iPhone, there are a few leaked images of the upcoming Motorola DROID 3. Honestly it isn’t different in terms of the look, perhaps the typical slide out keyboard has become a standard for Motorola DROID.
