without comments

moto-college-colorsThe Moto Maker was a breath of fresh air in the saturated scene of Smartphone options available back then, even if it offered limited options, majority of us were more than happy with it.

Months later, Moto adds the wooden option in the Moto Maker and that too received positive feedback! Motorola refuses to stop there, even in this day and age when hardware seems to become stale and obsolete within a quarter of a year, Motorola is moving aggressively ahead with it’s Moto X, today they announced a bunch of new customization options.

These new color choices are presented as part of the Moto X “College Collection,” specifically chosen to allow college students (as well as alumni or anyone else looking to show support) to outfit their Moto X designs in their school’s colors. Motorola is even partnering with a case company to offer clear cases that add the school’s logo (at extra cost), complementing your color scheme.

without comments

motorola-project-ara-modular-smartphone-1Google just announced that it will be hosting it’s first developer conference for the Project Ara soon on April 15-16, this would mark the start of an entire different league of smarphones that are highly upgradeable.

According to Google’s official Ara page, their goal with Ara is to ultimately make modern smartphone technology more accessible for the masses. Google’s Ara Project head Paul Eremenko has said it that to encourage a new trend of smartphones, the Ara could come to the market for as low as $50!

There’s a trick under the sleeve though, since it’s easily upgradeable, the $50 price tag would give the most basic version. We also know that the Ara would come in three sizes : mini, medium,jumbo. Are you interested in this smartphone?

Google Sells Motorola To Lenovo For $2.3 Billion!

without comments

Motorola-LogoThe most shocking news of 2014 yet, Google no longer has full control of Motorola as the company decided to pass on the entire company along with a few patents to Lenovo.

The sad state of events, Google bought Motorola for $12.5 Billion back in 2011 and ever since, even with a moderately successful Moto X and the recent Moto G, the company has been bleeding a lot of money ever since it’s Google acquisition. Strictly financially speaking, Google is likely walking away with a loss from the entire affair. However, the company will get to keep most patents and a license for the patents that are going to Lenovo, nice move Google.

Would you Like a Lenovo G, although we do know how bad that sounds!

While Verizon is officially yet to confirm any such plans, would you like to have one at this crazy price?

A Future-Proof Modular Phone By Google And Moto!

without comments

ara1blogpostAfter PhoneBloks went viral, Google and Motorola came out with Project Ara to make the PhoneBloks concept a reality by tying up with different hardware partners. It also showed how much Google was dead serious about customization.

This Project today saw itself achieve a radical manufacturing partner – 3D Systems. Today, the two companies have announced a multi-year deal that’ll see 3D Systems building what Motorola calls “the factory of the future,” and providing a complete end-to-end fabrication process for ‘Project Ara.’ This would mean that 3D Systems is responsible creating new “multi-material printing capabilities including conductive and functional materials” to build these modules (e.g., chassis, battery, etc.)

2014 could just see a Prototype of Project Ara, would you not buy yourself a future proof phone?

Will Moto steal the Mid Range with it’s Moto G at $180 OFF contract?

with one comment

moto-g-pointingMid Randge segment has been a very odd market for the smartphones of today.However, it is still one of the most important and profits making segment as proven by Samsung when they came out making majority of profits with their entry/mid range phones in the last financial year.

Today Motorola announced it’s Moto G and with it’s specs it wont kick any ball out of the park. What you exactly get is : 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400, 4.5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 5MP main camera, and either 8GB or 16GB storage. All that for $180/$200. OFF contract.

Phones similar to the Moto G are the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the HTC One Mini and these OEMs are asking for double the price. With a great device positioned so aggressively, would you get yourself a Moto G?
