Droid X2 to be dual core ? Video says so !

Someone named AndroidBandit has uploaded a video that supposedly shows Droid X2 booting up and the juicy stuff is, the boot screen says it’s dual core !

Motorola mobility has already doled out two dual core devices namely the Atrix 4g and the Xoom, so this doesn’t come as a surprise. And definitely , this must run the same Tegra 2 chip that is present in the latter two devices. The guy in this video apparently has a proto, so it kind of lags, but please, don’t start shouting “lagdroid obviously lags” 😉

New Android Market Brings new UI(Ver. 2.2.6)

So, do you notice the nice nip and tuck beautification of the market ? It’s supposed to have UI elements from the Honeycomb flavor of Android that is bound to release soon. So, download it right away and experience the new UI. The main advantage of the new UI is , you can view details of the application by being in the same page, means not needing to navigate to another tab. And some respite has been given to the apk size constraint of 25 MB, now it has been increased to 50 MB. Still , i think it limits the potential of the Market for Games.

Supposedly available for all flavors of android, but if you find any issues feel free to comment.

Read on to find a rough changelog :
