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

    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

    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

    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

    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.
