Is the Motorola KORE the Next Big Tablet or Phone?

When Motorola starts buying up domains that include a robotic or DROID-esque type of word, we start paying close attention.  Such is the case this week, after they apparently bought a variety of them which all include the word “KORE.”  Can you get anymore futuristic or mechanical than that?  Could it be the XOOM2?  Maybe the device to follow the Bionic that is currently codenamed DROID HD?  CEO Sanjay Jha said that their current plan is to have another LTE phone by the end of the year.  We just assumed it was that leaked AT&T device, but wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be on Verizon.

The current list looks something like this:  MotorolaKore.com, KoreMotorola.com, Moto-kore.com, MotoKore.com, and Motorola-Kore.com.  I’d say they fully expect whatever this is, to be huge.  You won’t find Moto owning MotorolaDefy.com, MotorolaCliq.com or even MotorolaXOOM.com.

*Note – Many of you in the comments are pointing out that this could be a mash-up of Core, Quad-Core and Kal-El (NVIDIA’s new processor) – KORE.  I’m liking that.

Any guesses?

    I can see Apple coming out with a new product called Apple Core and suing the hell out of Motorola. You know cause that’s their thing.

    whatever it is, it doesn’t look like its meant to be released after 2013 because they only paid for the domains for 2 years.

    • Ryan C

      Could be for Quad-Kore

    Just if you wanted the WHOIS proof.. and whatever it is, it doesn’t look like its meant to be released after 2013 because they only paid for the domains for 2 years.

    My guess? AT&T want their own “Droid” brand high end phones. They’re calling it Kore. Wouldn’t be a surprise.

  • RW-1

    Yes, the guess is that Jha can’t spell Core, and now Moto is stuck with the K.

    RELEASE DATE= 2015

  • Cwzrd23

    It could replace the motoblur name motokore could be the new name of Moros ui

  • slappynutz

    Seriously motorola?

    Put lipstick on a pig its still a pig.

  • Drew Dennis

    Why would anybody even want to support Motorola after all the crap they’ve pulled on their customers? My Droid X was my last purchase and will continue to be my last purchase from them unless they are honest with customers and give people the option to do with their own phone what they would like to do. I wish people would stop buying their devices and taking all their hype when we know how they will end up treating the customer in the end.

    This is a case of motorola employees who cant spell very good!

    It’s going to be the new Blur equivalent with online portal like HTC does with Sense.  I got $5 on it.

  • Keep on reaming everyone.. Love it

  • Mskks64

    Just from the weird kore I think of core which kind makes me think of maybe a blurless unlocked phone

  • Djlowproz

    Let the Bionic aka Motorola Delay come out first before talking about another Motorola phone smdh….

  • I’m beginning to become extremely annoyed at all this Motorola crap. New this or new that keeps popping up everyday while the Bionic isn’t even out the door.

  • Dan

    We will find out some time around 2015.

  • Daniel

    R they really gonna go back to nvidia, since they can’t seem to get the dual cores to play well with the lte radios

  • such.bad.kerning.

    But, yeah, I hope this is a tablet and not a phone that will make me sad about getting a bionic.

    maby its a web site to unlock the boot loader of our phones?> lol 

    • Actually not a bad thought. It very well could be.

  • kore is most likely the new blur we cant call it blur so kore it is

  • Frank Farnsworth

    Core spelt “Kore” for Kal-El? Hmmmm…

    • Anonymous

      I like that idea.

    • Anonymous

      That’s why I think it’ll address a series of devices versus a particular one.  They may believe they need to differentiate current tech from what’s coming with an easy marketing term, rather that trying to sell specs and stats.

  • If my new Bionic gets trumped right after it is released, I’m gonna be pissed. I’m guessing this is a Xoom with a Kal-El quad core.

    • Brian Maresca

      Thats already gonna happen with the HTC Vigor coming out a month later.

      • I have doubts about the Vigor coming out that quick, and if it is even a phone. It sounds like the HTC Puccini Tablet: http://www.bgr.com/2011/07/26/htc-puccini-the-companys-first-10-inch-tablet-uncovered/

      • Anonymous

        The Sensation and Evo 3D have the same dual core snapdragon processor as the Vigor will and at 1.2 GHz it’s slower than the OMAP4 at 1 GHz.

    • Anonymous

      I’d say it’s the successor to the Xoom, think about it. Doesn’t have Droid in the name, and they misspell the first letter (Zoom -> Xoom, Core -> Kore).

  • Legoturte92

    Don’t tell me this. I’ve waited far to long for the Bionic and I don’t want to know of any better phone that may come out within the year.

    • MFG

      Yeah, I could have sworn the Bionic was the next big thing from Motorola lol

        What’s a bionic?

    • CineSLR

      There will be a lot cooler phones by the end of this year… the Bionic WOULD have been THE phone to have if it was released when it was originally intended 6 months ago.  Hell, sprint has already had the phone OUT for a month and it will probably end up being $100 cheaper too.  We are getting HOSED.

      • KevParlee

        Yea the Bionic is already a 6 Month older technology now, its on to the next one for me. i can survive with my DX

        • Im sorry I didnt know dual core 1 gb ddr2 ram was old technology

             Pentile screen will keep me away from any product. By the way, what advantage are those specs if nothing takes advantage of it and you’re locked into a buggy manufacturer OS build?

            Moto’s new software doesn’t seem to be all that buggy or slow, actually.

          • Anonymous

            I’m using a Droid X. The Gingerbread update is massively buggy.

          • Anonymous

            must be your phone.. mine works 100%, and I’m still on the leak

            did you reformat before upgrading?

          • Anonymous

            Yes and I’ve run custom ROMs. Always wipe data/cache before. It’s a faulty Kernel and it causes a lot of well known issues. We’ve been talking about it quite a bit over the last couple days and the Motorola forums are full of complaints.

          • *Internet forums are full of complains.


            It’s so funny when people use the fact that people complain in forums as evidence of a phone’s weaknesses overall. People use forums to vent issues and find answers to problems. That doesn’t mean it is representative of the majority of users. You think if I have no issues with my phone I am going to go to a forum and post “I LOVE MY DROID 3!!!!!!”…. I would be called a troll and told to go home.

            The DX gingerbread update is the exception and it doesn’t affect everyone, my brother has a DX and has had no problems since the update.  The Atrix update was trouble free and the D3 is error free as far as I know.

    Itll have a locked bootloader with blur garbage.

    Quad kore?

  • supr2nr

    Based on the name Kore.  It makes me believe that this might be the name of the their new Quad Core Tegra 3 tablet they are planning to release.  Core – Kore seems like a bit of word play on their part.  Just my .02 cents though.  

    • Anonymous

      Couldn’t agree more, saved me from typing it. 

      Quad Core tablet. (Terga 3/Kal-El likely)

      • Droiiid

        i think it’ll probably be some omap quad core, since motorola has gone with omap for its recent devices (droid3 droid bionic) and texas instruments is the “official processor” of ice cream sandwich

        • Anonymous

          unlikely. OMAP quad core is a part of the 28nm OMAP5 spec that isn’t due for sampling until the very end of this year and release in products in 2H 2012. They’ve even stated it would be after Tegra 3. 

  • Yep.  We”re not falling for Moto’s BS anymore.  KORE basically stands for “Keep On Reaming Everyone”!!  After all the XOOM bull and Droid X2 nightmares, I’m not falling for their hype anymore.

    • droid x2 nightmares??

      I haven’t had any problems with Moto, why don’t you cry in a corner about it.

        Did you buy a xoom?

        • Anonymous

          No….but not because of the reasons you guys always whine about, I want a better processor than the lame Tegra 2.

          Having said that I think those of you who bought the 3G version that was promised 4G months ago have legitimate complaints but otherwise the Xoom is one of the better tablets on the market and gets way too much flack.
