Verizon’s Nexus 6 was supposed to launch today. Don’t believe me? All you need to do is watch the video below, which Verizon published to YouTube this morning as the phone’s official demo clip. Within the first 10 seconds, the presenter says, “The new Nexus 6, now available on the Verizon 4G LTE network.” Yeah, I’d say today was supposed to be the day.
Of course, the phone never did become available today, as March 12 is now the target, according to sources of ours. When the day does come, it should be available for $249 on-contract.
Until then, feel free to watch Big Red talk about Google’s 3-month old whale. Well, until they pull the video. (more…)
Motorola now has a full fleet of 2nd generation Moto devices to take it well into 2015. With yesterday’s introduction of the new Moto E (2nd gen) with LTE, the Lenovo-owned company can hit almost any price point or level of phone a consumer may be interested in. We have the Moto X at the high-end, Moto G in the middle, and now the new Moto E rounding things out at the “low” end. “Low” is a bit misleading, though, since it technically tops the new Moto G in a number of areas.
To compare the three, we put together a classic chart to show the differences. I can imagine that a number of you are debating between the three, so this should help in your research. Below, you will find price, specs, connectivity, and color options for each phone.
Any questions? (more…)
According to Wired, who spoke with Motorola directly, the Moto 360 is headed to Moto Maker, allowing for users to customize their very own smartwatch. While the customizations seem to be rather sparse, with Motorola to only offer current options that are already available, the idea of being able to mix and match looks without you having to do any of the work yourself is interesting.

For the most part, we believe that Verizon will one day sell the Nexus 6, Google’s newest whale of a smartphone (our review). We don’t know when that will be, but previous reports and our own sources have been under the impression that February 26 is/was more than likely the target. February 26 is tomorrow, in case you haven’t looked at a calendar in a while. Will it arrive tomorrow? Who knows. But hey, this neat little 360-degree viewer of the device popped up on Verizon’s site recently! It must still be happening!
Oooooooh. Ahhhhhhh. (more…)
With a soak test rolling out just a couple of days ago, it appears the update to Lollipop for the AT&T variant of the Moto X (2nd Gen) is now live for owners. According to Motorola’s release notes, the update is to build Android 5.0.2, bringing all of the Lollipop goodness, including lockscreen notifications, major UI changes, and so much more. (more…)
You already know that the Moto E with 4G LTE is now official, and yes, it was indeed Motorola’s mystery surprise for this morning. Our review unit arrived shortly after the announcement was made, so it’s now time for our unboxing and initial tour. (more…)
With the new Moto E with 4G LTE now official, you probably want to know the full dirty details on a specs front. So, we have that for you.
As a recap of our post earlier, this model has been upgraded in all the right places, with 4G LTE, a bigger display, quad-core processor, front-facing camera, and the best parts of Motorola’s app suite found on the Moto X, like Moto Display and Quick Capture Camera.
For $150, this is a sweet little package. You can buy the Moto E with 4G LTE here. (more…)
Motorola’s mystery announcement is official, and like we imagined the other day, it is the new Moto E. This time, though, it has 4G LTE, upgrades all around, and an even lower price. I know, how is that possible?
Where do we begin…how about with the upgrades? The new Moto E now has 4G LTE, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, slightly bigger 4.5-inch display (still qHD), front facing camera, 2390mAh battery, and runs stock Android 5.0 “Lollipop” with Moto’s suite of useful apps on top. We are talking the best features from the Moto X, like Moto Display and Quick Capture Camera. Seriously, it has those two features now. The new Moto E is like a mini-Moto X. (more…)
