Thanks to a T-Mobile page spotted by TmoNews, we now know that a software update is coming to two flagship devices, the Nexus 6 and Sony Xperia Z3, allowing the smartphones to connect to T-Mo’s 700MHz band of LTE spectrum.

You won’t find any differentiation in price, as each retailer has it marked at its list of $99. At least with Best Buy you can go in and pick it up whenever you want. (more…)
Over the weekend, Dropcam announced via its support knowledge base that it would soon be discontinuing support for older products, namely the original Dropcam and Dropcam Echo. The Nest-owned company has plans to improve the experience of its IP cameras, so that (unfortunately) means newly planned features won’t work on these older products and they will be shut down.

Motorola officially made its return to China this morning in a keynote that was filled with dancing, fist pumping, and excitement. The event kicked off the launch of their whole product line-up in an area of the world that Motorola hasn’t been for some time. If it means anything to you, the Chicago-based smartphone maker pointed out that they managed to jump into China just three months after Lenovo closed their acquisition of them. Of course, Lenovo is a Chinese company, so it’s not that surprising that it all came through this quickly.
Anyways, today kicks off the launch of Motorola’s line-up that includes the Moto X (2nd gen), Moto G (2nd gen) with LTE, Moto X Pro, and Moto Hint. The Moto 360 will come some time later, but for now, Moto wants us to focus on those first four products. (more…)
Former Motorola CEO and current Dropbox COO Dennis Woodside sat down recently for a brief chat with The Telegraph to discuss his current role, but also make a comment about the Nexus 6 that may interest a number of you.
