The unlocked Moto Z is currently discounted at B&H Photo (Best Buy too!) to just $449.99, a solid $250 discount. This might be the lowest price we have seen to date and happens to put it around the same price as the mid-tier Moto Z Play. Yeah, I’d call this a really good deal. (more…)
Remember at last year’s CES when Lenovo confusingly tried to tell the world that it was phasing out the Motorola name as it moved towards “Moto by Lenovo” branded phones? Yeah, well, Lenovo (and Motorola) has decided that that was probably a mistake and is now willing to re-embrace Motorola as a brand. (more…)
Lenovo already told us to expect a whole bunch of new Moto Mods in 2017, potentially upwards of 4 new ones per quarter. Last week, though, during the company’s re-launch into Pakistan, an executive doubled-down on that promise, saying that they plan to release 12 Moto Mods throughout the year. He also discussed the longevity of a Moto Mod, something we had not yet heard from the company. (more…)
Back in November, Motorola introduced a series of hackathons that they hoped would help bring new ideas for Moto Mods to the world. The thought was that there are brilliant minds all over who might have the next great idea for a Mod, but lack the funding or visibility to get it discovered. With these hackathons, Motorola is giving people the opportunity they need to potentially take a Moto Mod idea from concept to store shelf.
Today, Motorola gave us an update on the hackathon series after a successful couple of events in San Francisco, New York, and Buenos Aires. (more…)
Just a reminder that Google’s Daydream View is still discounted to $49 at the moment, a $30 discount. The deal on Google’s VR headset is good until late in February, but we thought we’d point out the fact that Best Buy has finally joined in on the fun. Originally, only Google and Verizon had dropped the price.
While only a few devices are Daydream-ready as of today, you should expect that most in 2017 will be. Taking advantages of deals like this ahead of time is never a bad idea. Then again, others likely have their own similar headsets on the way as well.
Verizon pushed out a whole bunch of updates to its phones and tablets this week. Since most are minor, but a number of you have emailed us wondering what they are, we thought a post that gathers them all would be helpful. If you own a Moto Z, LG G5, one of the G Pad tablets, or a Galaxy Tab S2, jump below. (more…)
