Verizon’s Nexus 6 Officially Arrives Tomorrow With Android 5.1

After months of waiting, Verizon has made it official – the Nexus 6 will be available tomorrow, March 12. Through a note in their news center, Verizon thanks Nexus fans for their patience while waiting for Google’s new flagship phone that debuted back in November.

The device will be available online starting March 12 and will then arrive in stores on March 19. If that sounds familiar, that’s because we broke this news last week on Twitter.  (more…)

Moto 360 Comes to Moto Maker Today (Updated)

At the end of February, Motorola announced that they would bring Moto 360 to their Moto Maker customization tool in March. Well, we are in March and they appear to be ready to go live with it. The Moto 360 page changed today to say “Now available in Moto Maker” and now has a “Build yours” button, similar to the one seen on the Moto X page that redirects to Moto Maker.  (more…)

Deal: Buy Unlocked Moto X “Pure,” Receive a $50 Discount and a Free Pair of $200 Bluetooth Headphones

The Galaxy S6s and HTC One M9 are arriving within a month, so it’s going to be tough to justify buying any other phone for the time being. Motorola is going to try to convince you that the Moto X “Pure Edition” is still worth it (and maybe it is for all we know), though, with today’s deal that will land you a new Moto X “Pure Edition” and a pair of TRACKS AIR Sol Republic Bluetooth on-ear headphones for just $449.94.

If you break it down, Motorola is basically giving you a Moto X “Pure Edition” with 16GB of storage, customized with MotoMaker, for $450. That’s a $50 discount over the normal full price. They are then tossing in $200 Bluetooth on-ear headphones for free.

Tough choice or are we all just waiting at this point?

Here is Verizon’s Nexus 6 Demo Video for Today’s Launch That Didn’t Happen

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…)

Comparison: Moto X (2nd Gen) vs. Moto G (2nd Gen) vs. Moto E (2nd Gen)

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…)

Customize Your Own Moto 360 Through Moto Maker Starting in March

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.  (more…)

Here is a 360-Degree GIF of the Verizon Nexus 6 (Updated)

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…)
