Next week, at a press event in New York, Verizon and Motorola are expected to announce the new DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2. Plenty of information has leaked about each over the past few months, information that shows not only a new flagship DROID (Turbo 2), but another, more affordable DROID (MAXX 2) that will focus on battery life. To add to the ongoing story that will soon be official, we have new details from sources of ours that tell of phones that won’t just be about “DROID” and specs. These phones have additional programs that Verizon and Motorola hope will help them stand out. (more…)
Pre-orders for the Moto X Pure Edition and the new Moto 360 (2nd gen) both went live yesterday around noon Pacific. We can tell that tons of you took to Motorola’s site to customize at least one of the devices on Moto Maker, because you killed their checkout system for a good hour or two. It’s probably safe to say that Motorola wasn’t expecting that much action.
Since these two devices seem to have more hype surrounding them than anything else at the moment, we thought we would see if you all wanted to share your Moto Maker creations. The Moto 360 has some 400 combinations to choose from and the Moto X Pure probably has even more than that. And even though we ordered ours already, we are always looking for inspiration for next purchases from the DL community.
So, what’d you go with? (more…)
Motorola slipped up briefly yesterday when it activated a Moto Maker page dedicated to the new Moto G. We had previously heard that Motorola would add the Moto G to its customization service, but this essentially confirms it. Of course, the page was pulled long ago, just not before a reddit user captured the details. (more…)
Evan Blass, better known on Twitter as evleaks, has reawakened to give us info regarding the upcoming Moto G (3rd Gen) from Motorola. According to Evan, the new Moto G will be customizable through Moto Maker, which is Motorola’s online custom shop for smartphones. Currently, only the Moto X (2nd Gen) and Moto 360 are customizable via the service, and if the Moto G does in fact hit Moto Maker, it would be the first mid-range (non flagship) smartphone you can customize.

When Motorola opened up its Moto Maker service to the Moto 360 a few weeks ago, Motorola asked if we would like to test it out by customizing a watch. We, of course, know how Moto Maker works after customizing a half-dozen Moto Xs over the last couple of years, but we took them up on their offer because there was a particular watch band that was only available through Moto Maker when paired with a Moto 360 that we wanted to get our hands on.

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…)
