Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch Launched, powered by Android Wear
Another day and another Smartwatch… less than a month after MWC, where numerous wearable devices were launched, Motorola just unveiled its own Smartwatch, powered by Android Wear, also announced today.

We have received the information this morning and Motorola is sharing absolutely no information about the specifications, the exact availability date and the price. According to the dedicated website, the moto 360 will be available “this summer”.

From the official blog post and what we learned this morning about Android Wear, we know that users will be able to activate voice commands by saying “Ok Google”,  to ask for a game score, a flight schedule, to set up an appointment in the calendar, to write a text message or a note or to set the alarm clock.

    Google Held Motorola Back From Creating A “True” Google Phone, According To Report

    Tyler Lee March 15, 2014

    Google Held Motorola Back From Creating A True Google Phone, According To ReportWhen Google first bought Motorola Mobility, many were wondering what Google had planned for the company. Many assumed that Google would then start churning out its own phones instead of relying on third-parties like Samsung, HTC, and LG, and apparently that’s what Motorola had in mind as well.

    However it seems that they were met with resistance from the likes of Google’s Larry Page and the Google engineering team which might have explained that apart from the Moto X and the Moto G, we did not really see anything else from the company. (more…)

    U.S. Cellular Offers Moto G For $99

    Adnan Farooqui February 9, 2014

    U.S. Cellular Offers Moto G For $99

    Motorola’s Moto G smartphone was very well received when it was launched late last year, primarily because of the fact that its a bonafide mid-range Android smartphone that’s very competitively priced off contract. Motorola officially sells it for $179, but several carriers are selling it for even less, making it the perfect choice for customers who don’t want to spend too much on a smartphone and also want to avoid a conventional service contract, but do want a proper Android experience. U.S. Cellular adds itself to that list, the prepaid carrier is now offering the Moto G for $99 off contract.

    Verizon’s Moto G Receives Android 4.4 KitKat

    Tyler Lee February 5, 2014

    Verizons Moto G Receives Android 4.4 KitKatThe Moto G is Motorola’s latest handset, although in this case it is not one of the company’s highest end products. In fact one might consider the device to hover somewhere between low to mid-ranged. That being said it does come with an affordable price tag, making it a pretty value for money buy for those who want an almost-stock version of Android that gets the job done. Now the downside to the Moto G is that it was launched with an older version of Android, Jelly Bean, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but having the latest version is a good thing, right? Well the good news is that for Verizon owners of the Moto G, there have been reports that the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update is being pushed out to you as we speak.

    The update will bring your version of the Moto G up to 173.44.20.en.US. For those who have yet to receive the notification informing them that an update is ready to be download, you can attempt to manually pull the update by going to your phone’s Settings, About Phone, System Updates, to see if the update can be downloaded. If it is not there, fret not because updates are typically rolled out in phases and we’re sure it will be your turn eventually.

    Lenovo Intended On Acquiring Motorola Several Years Ago

    Tyler Lee February 4, 2014

    Lenovo Intended On Acquiring Motorola Several Years AgoThe other day it was announced and confirmed that Lenovo would be buying Motorola Mobility from Google for around $3 billion, which is significantly less than what Google paid for the company back in 2011. That being said, it seems that acquiring Motorola Mobility was always part of Lenovo’s plan but due to a blunder, they missed out on the deal which then went to Google. According to Lenovo’s CEO, he stated that the reason Lenovo missed out on the opportunity several years ago was because they approached the wrong Motorola. Motorola had been split into two companies back in 2011: Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility.

    Instead of approaching Motorola Mobility, Lenovo instead talked to Motorola Solutions’ CEO, Greg Brown, where they found that Motorola Solutions had nothing of value to Lenovo. By then it was too late as Google would then go ahead and acquire Motorola Mobility for a whopping $12 billion. Either way all things considered, we guess Lenovo did acquire the company in the end, although we’re not sure if $3 billion would have been considered a steal for the company, or if they would have paid less back in the day.

    Motorola Droid ULTRA Review

    Daniel Perez January 31, 2014

    Motorola Droid ULTRA Review

    Motorola released three new Droids smartphones just a few months ago: the Droid ULTRA, the Droid MAXX and the Droid MINI. The Droid ULTRA is the droid that you’ve been looking for if you want to save a couple of bucks from the Droid MAXX, which has an increased 3500mAh battery. It’s also a phone you might be interested in if you owned the Droid RAZR in the past and you’re looking for the latest and greatest Motorola Droid phone.

    The Motorola Droid ULTRA is a mid-ranged Android smartphone as it features a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and a 5-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display, although Motorola certainly bumps things up with its 10MP main camera. The ULTRA brings back the kevlar to the latest Droid, but this time, Motorola has created a unibody kevlar body for the phone, rather than just feature a kevlar rear.

    Motorola certainly has big shoes to fill from its popular Droid RAZRs, but can their new ULTRA live up to the Droid name? There’s only one way to find out and that’s with our official review.

    Moto G Review

    Moto G Review

    The Moto G is generating a lot of interest worldwide as it hits new markets. Promoted by Motorola as having “quad-core speed” and “exceptional price”, it is a compelling pitch that catches eyes and ears immediately. The phone is built to please: it does not make any design statement, but has a clean look with a plethora of color customizations through clip-on accessories. Inside, the Moto G runs with an almost-stock Android experience which Motorola has promised to keep updated as fast as possible.

    For $179, this sounds pretty appealing, but is the Moto G as good as it sounds? This review will tell you how it feels to use the Moto G in the real world and what are its true strengths and weaknesses. Ready? (more…)

    Lenovo CEO Believes Motorola Can Be Profitable

    Adnan Farooqui January 30, 2014

    If you haven’t heard by now, American icon Motorola has been sold to Lenovo by Google for $2.9 billion. Mountain View paid a lot of money when it initially acquired Motorola Mobility, but under its belt that company wasn’t able to generate any profit. It bled red all over Google’s balance sheets, which some presume is the reason why Google finally decided to cut the cord. Lenovo, a well established PC vendor that’s been wanting to play a greater role in the global smartphone market for quite some time, gets access to all the talent as well as the globally renowned brand name. That might not be enough to return it back to profitability, though Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing is confident that there’s enough potential to make it profitable once again.

    Google Gets To Keep Motorola’s Project Ara

    Tyler Lee January 30, 2014

    motorola-ara-05As you guys might have heard by now, Lenovo recently confirmed that they would be acquiring Motorola Mobility from Google for close to $3 billion. Considering that Google bought the company for $12 billion back in 2011, this seemed like a huge discount, especially considering that their patents would also be transferred to Lenovo as well, but perhaps there could be a reason why Google sold Motorola so cheaply. It could be because that not everything will be going to Lenovo, as it was revealed during a brief conference call held by Lenovo that while they will be acquiring everything else, they will not be getting their hands on Moto’s Advanced Technology and Projects Group.

    That particular group which is headed by former DARPA director, Regina Dugan, will instead be transferred over to Google’s Android team which is being led by Sundar Pichai at the moment. For those unfamiliar with the Advanced Technology and Projects Group, this is the team that has been responsible for some of Motorola’s more “out there” projects such as tattoo security sensors, authentication pills, and Project Ara, the modular smartphone concept that is being made into a reality as we speak. Perhaps with the backing and absorption into Google, these more “out there” projects by Motorola could start taking off.
