Not April Fools’ , “Powered By Android” Is For Real!

without comments

moto-androidIt was just last week when we heard the news that Google was going all the way and trying to mandate the “Powered By Android” logo to all OEMs for their boot screens and it seems that it is not just another April Fools’ hoax, the Moto X has just got one via an update.

Is Motorola doing this to be an early adopter of the idea or is there is something more behind the scenes? But it seems, for now that we are to see this coming on many more devices in the near future!

without comments

final1.0_standard_800.0Google dropped a large piece of news today and it’s definitely what most of us, Android folks were watiing for – A version of Android specially designed for wearable tech – smartwatches.

With this announcement the wearable tech zone just got heated up and now, various hardware manufacturers are coming out of the woodwork to announce their own plans to create wearable devices. LG is the first one with their LG G Watch which is apparently tipped to release next quarter. LG also said it was “developed in close collaboration with Google,” but stopped short of dubbing it a “Nexus” device.

Next in line is Motorola :

The company too announced it’s smartwatch called the Moto 360, Motorola said that “all the core components are technically brand new,” and we do agree the first glimpse that the video shows us does look quite appealing and quite Apple like with choice of materials.

There is no question that this is probably one of the biggest announcements in tech for upcoming devices this year!

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.

Motorola Extends $70 Discount On Moto X Till Feb. 22!

without comments

Motorola-G-Hands-On-AA-13-of-17In honor of Valentines Day Motorola had their $70 discount, but now they have extended that discount till February 22nd making us wonder why Motorola loves discounts!

After the recent announcement of Lenovo’s buyership of Motorola, it’s great to see that the company is still doing great. Being one of the first flaghsips to receive Andorid KitKat and this new pricepoint, the Moto X is still one of the best deals available out there. For those that have been comparing the Moto X and the Nexus 5, now that you can get the Moto X for less than the Nexus 5, will you be pulling the trigger and buying one?

Lovely, Moto X Hitting European Markets This Feb!

without comments

michael-moto-x-6My Vanilla Android loving friends in Europe were definitely jealous of Americans when it comes to the Moto X. The Moto X is already listed on the UK and German Motorola online stores.

For people who reside in France, Britain or Germany, beginning of February is when you should be looking out for the Moto X. When it comes to the trademark customization of the Moto X – the Moto Maker doesn’t show any hint of being available there as of yet.

Are you buying a Moto X or rather would go with the Moto G?

verizon-moto-g-retail-packaging-leak-1

If it wasn’t for the company to take people by storm by offering remarkable specs in a neat package at $179, here comes the big news : $100, off-contract!

Rumours backed up by almost obvious photos suggest that Verizon has decided to offer the smartphone at $100 off any contract on prepaid accounts.The news comes from Google+ user Josue Joseph who apparently works at Best Buy and posted the image above simply saying: “Look at what just arrived!!”.

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