Motorola Droid Turbo (0)

Success in the smartphone world can be fleeting. Some makers may introduce a great product that easily catches on with consumers. Sometimes they follow it up with another model that does not live up to expectations. It is not just all about the features or even the screen size. There is that something that attracts to consumers to a particular product that many device makers cannot seem to pinpoint quite effectively. In a way, most makers experiment their way to introducing that next popular device to the public. If they get it just right, they may just have a winner in their hands. Such may be the case for the new Motorola Droid Turbo. The new Motorola Droid Turbo may be the follow-up to the Moto X smartphone that came out just this year. In a way, the Motorola Droid Turbo is an improvement of the former model. It addressed the shortcomings of Moto X to come up with a better phone feature-wise. The Motorola Droid Turbo features a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM and an improved 3,900 mAh battery, which Motorola says is good for up to 48 hours of continuous use. It also has a 5.2-inch Quad HD screen and a vastly improved 21MP rear camera to accompany a 2MP front facing camera. It is quite a monster in terms of performance and features. What might somehow be a letdown is its single speaker. Although it can play audio quite well, there is no way to distinguish left and right sounds unlike the usual pair of speakers on other Motorola phones. The design of the phone also does not stand out that well. But other than that, the Motorola Droid Turbo is worth checking out. It is available exclusively at Verizon Wireless for $200 on a 2-year contract. As a stand-alone phone, it will cost you around $600. Image Source: Verizon Acer Switch 10 Read More

Google sells Motorola to Lenovo for $3 billion (0)

Google has confirmed on its website that it has sold its Motorola unit to Chinese PC maker Lenovo for $2.91 billion. The deal consists of $660 million in cash and $750 million in Lenovo shares, while the remaining $1.5 billion will be paid through a three-year promissory note. Not only Lenovo receives the Motorola brand, but also its array of current devices, which includes the Moto X and Moto G. The Chinese company will also get over 2,000 patent assets, while Google will keep control for most of the patents it originally acquired from its past acquisition of Motorola. The deal would give Lenovo an established global brand, hoping to replicate its successful smartphone business outside China. Google, meanwhile, would shed off a unit that has constantly dragged down its profits. Motorola posted losses over the last year or so. The most recent quarter, for instance, Motorola posted an operating loss of $248 million, higher than what it lost a year earlier. The deal comes as a surprise as analysts see Google shifting towards creating its own hardware. Source: CNET Image source: CNET Read More

Motorola Moto G arrives in US earlier than expected (0)

Motorola was supposed to release its low-cost Moto G smartphone to the United States by January, but lo and behold that gadget hits retail last Tuesday. The Motorola Moto G, at least its GSM variant, is now available on for $179 without a carrier contract. Shipping begins December 2. In an interview with CNET, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside said early demand for the Moto G has been strong outside the US and was able to speed up the manufacturing process faster than expected, hence the early release of this budget smartphone. Also, it's a two days away from Black Friday, so the timing couldn't be any more perfect. Nevertheless, the January launch of Motorola Moto G will push through as planned, as carrier and retail partners (most prominently Verizon Wireless) take advantage of the strong prepaid market during the early months of 2014. "We were always gearing up for a big first quarter, but we think we'll have success this quarter as well," Woodside added. The Moto G is a less expensive counterpart of the Motorola Moto X, the flagship smartphone that enables customers to tweak how the device looks with custom colors and accents. Source: CNET Read More

Motorola Moto G: Get it unlocked for $179 (3)

Motorola has unveiled its latest inexpensive phone that does not scrimp on performance. The Motorola Moto G sports a 4.5-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, dual-SIM capability, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. "Next year, 500 million people will by a smartphone for about $200," Motorola's CEO Dennis Woodside said at the Moto G launch event. "Up until now they've had a choice: Buy a cheap phone with last year's tech, or a used phone. We don't think that's fair, we believe we've given them a better choice." This entry-level gadget boasts a curved design similar to the Moto X, as well as 8GB of internal storage and an extra 50GB of Google Drive cloud storage. Buyers can choose from 19 customization options with its back covers and foldable covers of different colors. This smartphone runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, with a promise of an Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade by January. The Motorola Moto G is now available in Brazil and parts of Europe, while the United States, Middle East, and parts of Asia will have to wait until January to purchase it for $179 unlocked. A 16GB version is also available for $199. Source: Mashable Read More

Motorola Shows Off US-Made Moto X Smartphone (0)

Motorola has officially introduced to the public the Moto X, its first flagship smartphone after Google acquired the mobile company. And just like what Guy Kawasaki hinted back in March, the phone is fully-customizable before the smartphone lands on your doorstep. The Motorola Moto X allows consumers to customize some of the phone's outer components such as the front and back covers. They offer more than 2,000 design combinations wherein they can choose different colors combinations for their covers and even the accents through Motorola's online design studio. You can even have a custom message engraved at the back, as well as a cover made of wood, if you prefer it that way. The new Motorola smartphone is assembled in the United States, the first smartphone to be made in the country after a long time. This is a welcoming news amidst a sea of overseas-made smartphones. Because the Moto X is manufactured domestically, it will only take up to four days for the phone to be shipped to your door. Apart from the design, you can also choose between a 16GB or 32GB version of the Moto X. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 and has 2GB of RAM. It features a 4.7-inch touch screen, a 10-megapixel rear-facing camera, a two-megapixel front camera, and a capability to record video with 1080p HD resolution. It also has a new camera interface that lets users launch the camera just by shaking the Moto X quickly and tapping anywhere on the screen to shoot a photo. It also comes with advanced voice control options, wherein you just have to say "OK Google Now" to activate, as well as up to 50GB of free cloud storage for two years with Google Drive. The Moto X will be available first on AT&T as early as late August and will cost $199.99 with a two-year contract for the 16GB version. Shell out $50 more, or $249.99, and you get the 32GB model. Other carriers such as Sprint, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, and T-Mobile will offer the Moto X at a later date. Source: Washington Post Image source: CNET, Motorola Read More

Motorola Adviser Hints at Custom-Designed Smartphones (0)

Rumors about Motorola possibly unveiling custom-designed Android handsets has spread like wildfire after an adviser for Motorola hinted about it. In his post in Google+, noted Silicon Valley venture capitalist Guy Kawasaki writes: "Wouldn't it be great if you could personalize your phone like this?," referring to a video of a customizable car. And it might just happen. A recent post on AndroidAndMe hints that the so-called Motorola X Phone (pictured) will actually be part of a larger brand and will include custom-designed configurations for storage capacity, color, apps, ringtones, and others. Another source suggest that this smartphone may even allow users to customize the memory, processors, and carrier support, with reported one-week delivery guarantee. Such statements of custom-designed phones are not easy to dismiss, even in the age of Reddit and trolling in the Internet. However, there are sectors who express doubt about the rumor. "Is Guy having a bit of fun with his fan base or is he legitimately gauging public interest," asks Scott Webster of CNET. Perhaps we will know the answer at the upcoming Google I/O, once it is the Google-owned mobile brand's turn to present. Source: AndroidAndMe, via CNET Image source: Read More

Motorola RAZR i, Its First Intel-Based Smartphone, Unveiled (1)

Google-owned Motorola has unveiled its Intel-powered RAZR i smartphone. It may not be the first time Intel has been incorporated in mobile devices, but Motorola is arguably Intel's biggest smartphone partner. Customers may confuse the RAZR i to the recently-released Motorola RAZR M. Even Motorola could not tell the two smartphones apart, as the Verizon-branded RAZR M was posted on its official Facebook page in announcing for the RAZR i. The difference of the two devices lies on the RAZR i's dedicated camera button, which is absent on the M. Other features of the Motorola RAZR i includes a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED, Gorilla Glass screen; Circle-laden UI; 2,000 mAh battery; and a Kevlar trim around the back. Of course, this smartphone sports Intel's single-core Atom Z2480 Medfield chipset, which yields speeds at up to 2GHz. No word on the price yet, but the RAZR i is expected to be available in the UK, France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico beginning October. Whether the phone will be available in the United States remains to be seen. Source: TechCrunch Read More

Motorola Unveils RAZR M Smartphone (0)

Motorola has introduced the latest addition to the RAZR family, including the $99 RAZR M smartphone. The device has a 4.3-inch touch screen and LTE radio, all while packing most of the good stuff from its larger counterparts. The RAZR M runs on Android 4.0.4 and comes with haptic feedback. Its smaller size--as compared to other Android handsets--make it attractive to those who like their smartphones as average-sized as the iPhone, all while retaining a larger screen. Tech analysts claim that the RAZR M could make the iPhone 4S a run for its money. The M is available now, a week before Apple will introduce the new iPhone and will likely slash the iPhone 4S for a bargain $99 price tag. This gives the new Motorola smartphone a headstart at the retail race. Source: TechCrunch Read More
