5G and Gigabit LTE, while not exactly the same thing depending on whose marketing department you ask, is coming. Maybe not tomorrow and maybe not until late 2017 or beyond, but it’s definitely coming. Recently shown off by Sprint at a small event in New Orleans, the company is currently working with a prototype Snapdragon-powered Motorola device to bring Gigabit LTE to customers. (more…)
The Moto Z Play DROID (our review) is the latest in Verizon’s lineup to see an update to Android Nougat.

Should Android Wear 2.0 have you excited to finally dive into Google’s wearable platform, you may want to peak over at eBay today, where you can find a deal on the Moto 360 (2nd gen) for as little as $179.99. That’s a solid $120 discount.

We are assuming that because leaks for each are starting to flow with regularity, but also because retailers are posting up entire listings for the devices, fit with pictures, specs, and everything else you might need to know.
