Motorola Moto E shows up in Indian importer manifest

Motorola Moto E shows up in Indian importer manifest

Evidence is continuing to mount that the Motorola event scheduled for May 13th in London, is in fact to launch a new low-cost handset the Moto E. Indian importer/exporter Zauba have listed the handset with model # xt1022, which also lists some basic specs. As you can see the manifest confirms the Motorola Moto E name and also the 4GB of internal storage which has been rumoured : The manifest only lists the white version and confirms 4GB of internal storage, although it’s rumoured to be backed up by a microSD Card reader. Other specs rumoured for the Moto E[Read More...]

Motorola Moto X+1 leaked on Moto Maker site

Motorola Moto X+1 leaked on Moto Maker site

Usually, a manufacturer is the last place you look for leaks to occur regarding an unannounced smartphone, but it appears that Motorola was a little sloppy on their Moto Maker site overnight. Someone in the web team left a little easter egg accidentally on their site, confirming earlier reports from @EvLeaks that the follow-up to the Moto X would be called the Moto X+1. The picture has now been removed, but has been copied down for all the internet to see : Motorola have a new phone coming – possibly two. There’s an event scheduled for May 13th, where they’re[Read More...]

New Motorola smartphone – ‘Made to Last, Priced for All’ to be announced May 13

New Motorola smartphone – ‘Made to Last, Priced for All’ to be announced May 13

Motorola is apparently set to launch a new smartphone in just under two weeks, sending out press invites to an event scheduled in London on May 13. The invite, which announces the new phone will be ‘Made to Last, Priced for All’ also mentions that it will be aimed at connecting more people. So this new phone launch could be a super cheap phone. Motorola has since the Moto G, expressed an interest in the lower end of the smartphone market, leaving the other manufacturers to fight it out over the higher end. This seems to have been working somewhat[Read More...]

Motorola Moto X successor – XT912A shows up on GFXBench

Motorola Moto X successor – XT912A shows up on GFXBench

The successor to the Motorola Moto X has apparently shown up on benchmarking site GFXBench, giving us an insight into what could be announced later this ‘Summer’. Motorola announced during a Q&A session held at Mobile World Congress (MWC) that they would be releasing an update to the Moto X in Summer (Our winter here in Australia). The use of the XT912 code is a little odd, given it was the original code for the Droid RAZR in the US, but this is the XT912A. Anyway, the specs listed in GFXBench show that the updated Moto X, called the Moto[Read More...]

The Future Of Motorola

The Future Of Motorola

When Lenovo purchased Motorola Mobility from Google earlier this year there was some scepticism about what would happen to Motorola’s line of Android devices. Anyone who has seen a Moto G or a Moto X knows that Motorola have a close to pure stock Android experience. The UI is stock Android in its design but Motorola have added some excellent features to it without ruining the user experience (*cough TouchWiz*). Today Motorola VP of software, Punit Soni, took to a Google Hangout to answer questions from Joe Public regarding Motorola and their vision for the future. Punit stated that Motorola[Read More...]

Motorola seems to be out to troll everyone with the name of their Moto X successor

Motorola seems to be out to troll everyone with the name of their Moto X successor

The Motorola Moto X has only just launched here in Australia, but we already knew back in February when they announced it was on its way that they were working on a successor and the name looks set to troll a lot of companies. For a start it seems like the name ‘One’ has been used by a lot of companies in the last couple of years: Xbox One, Fitbit One, HTC One, with HTC getting a double shot with the HTC One X+, and of course the OnePlus One is about to launch. But all that isn’t stopping Motorola[Read More...]

Motorola removes the 16GB Moto G storage option from the Australian website

Motorola removes the 16GB Moto G storage option from the Australian website

Its seems that Motorola has scrapped the possibility of a 16GB Moto G making its way down to our shores, with the Motorola Australian website now removing the 16GB storage option within the specs area of the Moto G page. Now while this might not seem a big surprise as Motorola never acutally provided any details of when the 16GB Moto G would be coming to Australia, it is worth noting that the Moto G 16GB has been very scarce within the UK and most of Europe, with the 16GB version not even seen hitting the shelves till late December[Read More...]

Rumour: Moto 360 will feature OLED display, sapphire glass, wireless charging

Rumour: Moto 360 will feature OLED display, sapphire glass, wireless charging

Motorola caused quite a stir this week when it announced the extremely good looking Moto 360 smartwatch. However, aside from a few renders and a launch window of ‘Summer 2014′ (Winter for us Southern hemisphere folk), there was not much in the way of useful information. Instead, we’ve had to turn to unofficial channels to find out more. G For Games claims to have information from a Motorola source that says the Moto 360 will feature an OLED display, sapphire glass and magnetic induction wireless charging. While these details are still just rumour and speculation, it doesn’t seem all that[Read More...]

Motorola talks Moto 360

Motorola talks Moto 360

This morning, Jim Wicks, head of Motorola Consumer Experience Design sat down with Barbara Liss from Motorola’s Social Media team for a Google+ hangout. It wasn’t smooth sailing, it was 25 minutes late (perhaps Moto 360 had the wrong time set?) but they eventually got down to brass tacks and talked about the design. To start with, Jim spoke about the circular shape of the Moto 360. He described the history of time pieces as part of the decision to go circular rather than the square or rectangular route that a number of companies entering the smartwatch field tend to[Read More...]
