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…)
To celebrate a recent price drop to $99 (from $130), AT&T has partnered with us to give away a brand new MINI JAMBOX to one of our fabulous readers.
For those new to the MINI JAMBOX, just know that it’s a smaller version of Jawbone’s popular JAMBOX series of Bluetooth speakers. It lasts for up to 10 hours on a single charge, is pocketable, works as a speakerphone for calls, comes in a variety of fashionable colors, and still gives off “rich, crisp, three-dimensional sound.” Better yet, Jawbone recently released an update called Multi Play that allows users to connect two MINI JAMBOX speakers together for simultaneous sound domination.
Like Verizon, AT&T will also carry the Moto 360 at some point in the future. Announced this evening via AT&T’s pressroom, the carrier confirmed that they will add the circular smartwatch to their “industry-leading” portfolio of devices. Pricing and availability will be announced later, though, so don’t expect to pre-order today like you currently can through Verizon. I would image that they will offer some sort of bundle type deal or discount when purchased with a smartphone.
We still do not have a specific launch day for the new Moto X, but AT&T, Verizon, and US Cellular have all confirmed their plans to carry the device. Motorola told us in press briefings yesterday that AT&T and Verizon were the only two participating in Moto Maker (along with an unlocked GSM model), but the rest of the carrier situation remained a mystery.

There she is – the new Moto X. Not the Moto X+1 or the Moto X2 or the Moto X (insert random codename), this is simply, the new Moto X (2nd generation if we are getting really technical). It’s official and will be available soon, as in, this month from a variety of carriers and as an unlocked device.
At a price of $99 on 2-year contract or $499 at full retail, Motorola has created a high-end phone that they are offering at a price around $100 lower than competitors.
