Motorola Hosting September 4 Event – For New Moto X, Moto G and Moto 360

motorola event

On September 4, the day after Samsung gets done announcing its next Galaxy Note device, Motorola will host a press event of their own to unveil new products. We are fully expecting the next version of the Moto X to be the star of the show, along with the Moto 360. There may also be a new Moto G on hand. Well, that’s at least what the invite is hinting at.

Rumors of a Moto X+1 as the follow-up have existed for months now, but as we often remind folks, nothing is official until Motorola makes it official. The Moto 360, on the other hand, is all sorts of official already. This event should fill in some of the blanks, though, like final specs and price. The Moto G has helped Motorola find some success after years of frustration, so it only makes sense that they refresh the handset.

Who is ready for Motorola’s next big launch?

    Sounds like the muzzle can be removed at 1am Sep 5. Of course, what time zone is that? I don’t know.

    Grrr… All the tech blogs/sites mentioned was the 9/4 date and Motorola never officially announced the Sep 5 public announcement. I am so annoyed. FYI, I read on another site that the current Moto X will have a 1 day sale of $199 for the 16 GB version. I hope that is true. Buy the current Moto X for $199 or buy a more current smartphone for over twice the price?

    Have we gotten confirmation on what time on the 4th?

    So, being that I’m in Chicago, is it frowned upon to show up without an invite?

    It’d be sweet if they completely revolutionized the bluetooth headset game. All of the nice looking ones (I have the new Jawbone Era) have pretty crappy battery life and voice quality in the bluetooth space overall is inconsistent. If they came out with a bluetooth that had amazing battery life, crystal clear sound quality and a nice look, it could shake things up. It’s kind of like printers. There isn’t really a good, affordable printer. You just have one because you need one and there’s no incentive to make them any better.

    I can’t wait very much longer for the Moto 360

    Not quite making that “summer” window they had orginally said… but better late than never!

    • Rob5321

      Fall doesn’t start until Sept 23, so technically they made their late summer promise! Still want it now though…

      • sagisarius

        I guess that’s the magic of them giving seasonal deadlines, there’s always that second definition backup. Even though everyone uses meteorological seasons (fall ends Sept 1st), they can always use the “oh no, we totally meant astronomical fall” excuse!

    I can’t wait to see what the new Moto X is and how much it will cost off contract.

    Based on the news about the Verizon unlimited data loophole going away in a few weeks, I went to Costco and burned two upgrades on an S5 for me and my wife. My wife wanted to upgrade her S4, but I got the S5 to sell for profit and use the cash to upgrade at full retail.

    Just in case I might like it, I used the S5 for a day, but I soon realized that it isn’t for me, even with Nova launcher on it. It has so much bloatware you can’t disable that it was laggy in places that it shouldn’t be. My Moto X felt faster, albeit I did like the S5’s display. It was a little big, but I could get used to that. The physical home button on the other hand – I don’t like physical buttons. I’d do OK with capacitive buttons, but I don’t like have to physically push the button when using one handed.

    So, getting the S5 for $99 at Costco, and then selling it 3 days later for $500 gives me $400 of free “upgrade” money to apply to the new Moto X. I’ll probably wait for a bit to see if it goes on sale like the Moto X did to get a good deal on it. The nice thing is that I don’t need to worry about upgrading so I can order wherever and whenever I want.

    My question is … How do I get in?

    • Godzilla

      Kiss her on the neck a few times, move your hips, then it’ll happen.

      • Franklin Ramsey

        I don’t know why, but that made me laugh. +1 for you.
