Good Deal: Grab a great deal on a Dark or Light Chrome Moto 360 from BetterIT

The Moto 360 continues to be fairly scarce in terms of stock availability at Australian retailers, which means importers and online stores are cleaning up. But just because they appear to have all the stock doesn’t mean they can’t offer a great deal on the watch. BetterIT, who we saw last offering a great deal on the LG G Watch[Read More…]

Comparing the Moto 360 to Sony’s new Smartwatch 3: There’s a clear winner

I’ve had the privilege for the last week or so of having both the Moto 360 and Sony’s new Smartwatch 3 in my hot little hands (or rather, on my wrists).

Possible Moto G 4G Gen 2 hits Geekbench with Snapdragon 410 processor

Unlike the new Moto X, Motorola managed to get the Moto G Gen 2 up for sale in Australia quite soon after the announcement. But just like the original Moto G, the phone was 3G only, but the Moto G spawned a 4G counterpart and it appears that Motorola is gearing up to launch the 4G version of the Moto[Read More…]

Android 5.0 Lollipop update for Moto X (2014) enables LTE Bands 3, 5 & 7

The Motorola Moto X launch has been delayed here in Australia, making the temptation to import a ‘Pure Edition’ Moto X from the US, possibly with some Moto Maker customisations, quite attractive. The wait for a promised software update to enable LTE Bands 3, 5 & 7 on the phone, making the handset usable in Australia has apparently ended. Users[Read More…]

Motorola has been on something of a hot streak with updates for their phones, bringing new meaning to the word Timely, at least when it comes to delivering software (Let’s not talk about delivering hardware).

Harvey Norman reporting stock shortages on Moto X and Moto 360 – but JB Hifi apparently have limited Moto 360 stock.

It’s safe to say that the launch of the Moto 360 or even the impending launch of the Moto X Gen 2, hasn’t been a smooth one. The inital launch date for the Moto 360 came and went without stock appearing and even with legal issues over warranty cleared up, it’s been a hard slog for customers wanting to get[Read More…]
