After posting our review of the SHIELD Tablet from NVIDIA, a few of you stated that you would be waiting for availability of the 32GB model that comes with 4G LTE connectivity. Well, the day is finally here, and the next variant of the SHIELD Tablet is now available for pre-order. (more…)
Tomorrow at 12PM Eastern, Motorola is going to put the AT&T and GSM (unlocked) models of the new Moto X (2nd generation) up for pre-order through their own store. If you can’t wait until then, feel free to cruise over to AT&T’s site right now, as they have the device up for pre-order in “Black Resin,” “Bamboo,” or “Black Leather.”
As expected, the device runs $99 with new 2-year contract. In not-so-expected news, the full retail price is listed as $526, which is higher than the $499 price that Motorola gave us during the phone’s unveiling. (more…)
Moto Voice, the rebranded Touchless Control that arrived with the new Moto X, updated today for the original Moto X and last year’s DROID family. The changelog simply states that Moto Voice is now “supported” on the DROID ULTRA, Mini, MAXX, and Moto X (1st generation). The update also supposedly brings support for the Moto 360, though we are showing that as having been included last week.
The update should be live – go grab it! (more…)

But rant and rave no longer, fellow users, because Shazam has finally integrated Google Play. (more…)
Over the weekend, Motorola announced that the new Moto X would go up for pre-order on Tuesday, along with their Turbo Charger, a device that utilizes Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology to give the new X up to 8 hours of battery power within 15 minutes. If you plan to buy the new Moto X, fork out the extra $35 for the Turbo Charger. Just do. And I don’t say that because I think it’s a cool accessory (even if it is). No, I say that because the battery life on this phone is average, and you never know when you are going to need another 8 hours of juice in a day.
I hate to bring semi-bad news like this on a Monday, but after testing the new Moto X for over a week now, I don’t have any other word to bring on a battery life front. (more…)
