Officeworks begins selling the new Moto G

Officeworks begins selling the new Moto G

The launch of the new Moto G was hotly anticipated and it’s finally been released, with stores in Australia beginning to see stock showing up on docks and onto shelves. So far we’ve seen the GoodGuys begin selling the phone, but our sources tell us that Officeworks are now receiving stock and beginning sales. The phone is selling for $299 at Officeworks stores, but there’s no sign of it on the website as yet – but that’s surely only a matter of time. It’s a slightly higher price than we saw from TheGoodGuys online store during the eBay sale, but[Read More...]

Big W adds the Motorola Moto E to their range

Big W adds the Motorola Moto E to their range

The reach of Motorola is extending, with new retailers adding their phones to their range as time goes by, this time with discount department store Big W adding the budget price Moto E to their range. The phone is available in-stores as of the current catalogue, which begins tomorrow, Thursday 18th of September. The phone will sell for $174 in-store and presumably online, although there’s currently no listing for Motorola products on the Big W e-store. The phone is obviously a fairly decent buy, with Motorola delivering software updates to their phone almost as quickly as Google can deliver them.[Read More...]

Kogan offering the new Motorola Moto G 4G LTE for $229+ delivery

Kogan offering the new Motorola Moto G 4G LTE for $229+ delivery

With the launch of the new Moto G, it looks like retailers are beginning to drop their prices on the original. First cab off the rank is Kogan, who have begun offering the Motorola Moto G with 4G LTE (XT1039) for $229 plus delivery. At this price, Kogan is undercutting the Good Guys by a good $70, making it an absolute steal. We recently took a look at the Moto G 4G and found it to be just as good as the original, but with the added bonus of having 4G along for the ride. It’s definitely a great deal,[Read More...]

Moto G 4G — Mini Review

Moto G 4G — Mini Review

The Google owned Motorola, faced some issues in releasing their first generation of devices. The Motorola Moto X took 8 months to reach our shores, but with the release of the Moto G, it seemed like Motorola found their feet, taking just over 2 months to reach our shores in January this year. The Moto G has been quite well received both critically, where it’s received praise for its smooth experience, paired with rock bottom price, as well as by the general public where it’s led to Motorola proclaiming it their most successful smartphone to date. But it’s not perfect,[Read More...]

iFixit tears down the Moto 360 and finds parts inside

iFixit tears down the Moto 360 and finds parts inside

In the early morning light of new competing watch platforms, we have some Android Wear news! iFixit has gotten a hold of the latest Android Wear release, the Motorola Moto 360, and has done their usual teardown of the watch. The Moto 360 scores a pretty dismal 3 out of 10 for repairability, with iFixit citing a rear panel which requires ‘heat and careful prying’ to remove, as well as a battery which is hard to reach being housed deep within the inner housing. Also of note was the display requiring complete disassembly of the watch to replace. The 3[Read More...]

The new Moto G drops to $268 at The Good Guys

It’s only been a few days since the new Moto G was announced but The Good Guys have already dropped the price from $279 down to $268 (limit 3 per customer) with a $5 local door to door delivery charge which takes it to a total of $273.

The new Moto G now available for order in Australia

After being announced yesterday afternoon, the Moto G is now appearing for pre-order on Australian retailers websites. The GoodGuys have put the new Moto G (XT1068) up on their website, with a price of $279, putting the price slightly above the RRP of $269.

Want to order a Moto 360 tonight from Motorola.com and ship it to Australia? Here’s how!

Want to order a Moto 360 tonight from Motorola.com and ship it to Australia? Here’s how!

The Moto 360 is here. Well, it’s there – if by “there” you mean “the US”. If you can’t wait any longer for the it to arrive in Australia later this year, then you’re probably going to be looking to import your Moto 360 from the US. Motorola’s hot new smartwatch goes on sale in the US at around 2.00am AEST from Motorola.com. It’ll also be available from Google Play and Best Buy’s website in the US, but they’re not much use to us – it can be a pain to access the US Google Play site, and Best Buy[Read More...]

Motorola announce the new Moto G – coming to Australia this month

Alongside the new Moto X and Moto 360, Motorola has also announced the new Moto G – again, the rumoured Moto G2 name was incorrect – with Motorola promising a heap great features, including front-facing stereo sound on a 5″ HD Display. The new Moto G is promising all day battery life, along with the latest Android OS (which we presume will be updated as regularly as the original). The new Moto G will have a range of colourful new shells to clip to the back to personalise your phone and with a quad-core processor it should be just as[Read More...]

Motorola announce the new Moto X with 5.2” AMOLED 1080p display – coming to Australia later this year

Motorola announce the new Moto X with 5.2” AMOLED 1080p display – coming to Australia later this year

Motorola has just announced the all new Moto X. Instead of carrying the much rumoured Moto X+1 name, Motorola have instead simply called the phone the new Moto X. With the tag line: ‘The new Moto X: Pure style. Pure performance’, Motorola will have a lot to live up to, but their previous efforts with the Moto line, have shown they can deliver performance. Syle wise, the new Moto X will have a curved metal frame body with an upsized screen carrying a FullHD resolution, at 5.2″ and 1080P, it’s going to attract some criticism from fans of the original[Read More...]
