Specs for the Moto X+1 purportedly outed on Brazillian phone retailers website

Specs for the Moto X+1 purportedly outed on Brazillian phone retailers website

Seems Motorola has some issues with secrecy in Brazil, after having the Moto E specs outed just days prior to the launch by a phone shop in Brazil, it seems they’ve leaked the specs on Motorolas upcoming flagship replacement – the Moto X+1. The site who leaked the details – livrarialogos – is showing an old picture of the Moto X, so no press renders have gone up for the phone as yet. So, like any ‘leak’ take this with a grain of salt. Droid-life who originally reported on the leak advised that there was a rider (which has since[Read More...]

Motorola shows off the Moto 360 at Google I/O

Whenever we’ve posted anything regarding Android Wear, we’re overwhelmed by comments saying they’re waiting for the Moto 360.

So, with Android Wear out in the open at Google I/O, Motorola has taken the wraps of their watch and shown it off in this hands-on video from Google I/O. The video shows a lot of the watch, describes the materials used in its constructions (Stainless steel for the[Read More...]

Motorola officially announce the Moto G with 4G LTE and the Moto E coming early July

The cat has already been let out of the bag about the release of the Motorola Moto E and the Moto G 4G LTE, after The Good Guys added the Moto E and Moto G 4G to their website prematurely a couple of weeks back. But, it’s now official, with Motorola officially announcing the handsets availability for the Australian (and New Zealand) market. Both the Moto E and Moto G with 4G LTE (We’ll just call it the Moto G 4G from now on) will be available as previously reported from early July. The handsets will be available ‘through retail[Read More...]

LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live Android Wear now showing in Google Play

LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live Android Wear now showing in Google Play

After this morning being officially announced, the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are now showing in the Australian Google Play store. While both pieces of Android Wear are showing, there’s a catch. The Samsung Gear Live does not appear ready for release as yet, with the watch listed as ‘Coming Soon’. There’s better news for fans of the LG G Watch, with the watch listed as ready to order with options for Black (Titan) or White Gold. When the Samsung Gear Live goes on-sale, which we are told is ‘Soon’, it will cost $250 from Google Play. The[Read More...]

A closer look: Moto 360

A closer look: Moto 360

Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to the Moto 360, in the flesh. It isn’t my flesh, but you’re seeing Motorola’s new smartwatch courtesy of David Pierce again from the Verge. Before we take a look at the watch in closer detail, here’s his thoughts on the watch and its feel: The Moto 360 isn’t actually that big. It’s solid and high-end, and it’s definitely in the larger end of the smartwatch spectrum, but it quickly felt natural on my wrist. Light, round, and comfortable. David thought the 360 was something pretty special, and from the looks we’d have[Read More...]

Google shows off Android Wear

Google shows off Android Wear

After announcing Android Wear back in April, Google today took the wraps off their Android Wear plans and took everyone through the interface, and showed exactly what Android Wear can do. David Singleton, Director of Engineering, Android took the stage to show off the new system. He said that Style is important – square and circular screens are used to give choice. Android Wear is about Sensors, fitness Goals and giving intelligent answers to spoken questions – something that is key in a multi-sceen world. He advised that people check their phones on average – 125 times per day. Android[Read More...]

Moto X+1 allegedly poses for the camera in a case

Moto X+1 allegedly poses for the camera in a case

The Moto X+1 is probably very close to a launch right now, leaks have been getting closer together as we get closer and today EvLeaks has shown off what he says is the Moto X+1 ensconced in a protective case. It’s a good looking render, which if the clock in the top right of the screenshot is to be believed, confirms the phone will launch with Android 4.4 (KitKat). That could however change quite quickly depending on the outcome of Google I/O this week, if Google decides to release a new version Android. An announcement of which, wouldn’t be too[Read More...]

Moto G 4G listed for July 1 release by The Good Guys; priced at $298

Moto G 4G listed for July 1 release by The Good Guys; priced at $298

Last week, we saw that The Good Guys listed Motorola‘s new Moto E handset for sale at $187, to be released on July 1. Tonight, we’ve seen them do it again with a listing for the new LTE-compatible model of the Moto G. The price is $298 – a bit of a markup from the original Moto G, but that’s to be expected when moving into the LTE market. Unlike the Moto E listing(s), there’s only one Moto G and it appears to be black (just like the original, then). The listing also includes the specifications of the device and[Read More...]

Moto X — Review

Moto X — Review

The Moto X – Motorola’s biggest wasted opportunity The Android road for Motorola has been a rocky one. In the beginning, their offerings were quite frustrating, with the use of their MotoBlur skin universally derided. It was, by many accounts, one of the worst skins on the market. Their early phones – the Motorola BACKFLIP and DEXT – are fine examples of what NOT to do when it comes to building an Android phone, but after the poor reception they improved and showed how good they could be when they released the first Android 2.0 device, the Motorola Milestone (or[Read More...]

Motorola Moto devices updating with new World Cup inspired boot animation

Motorola Moto devices updating with new World Cup inspired boot animation

Motorola has been liberating their services into Google Play for a while now, they’ve even moved their Boot Services into the Play store, which of course means they can do fairly cool stuff, like update your Boot Animation on a whim, and that’s just what they’ve done this morning with a World Cup inspired boot animation. The update was announced on the Motorola Google+ page. The app was updated in Google Play and my Moto X has just finished updating, while Jason reports that his Moto G from the UK has finished updating with the new animation as well, we[Read More...]
