Motorola’s Android Wear watch, the Moto 360, is without a doubt the most anticipated wearable of 2014. There is good reason for that, of course. Thanks to its classic, round design, stainless steel body, and leather accessories, there aren’t any other smartwatches that can come close to the overall package promised.
Motorola took their sweet time getting it ready for retail after initially unveiling it in March, but the device is now available for purchase. Early reviews showed concern over battery life, limited quantities have been available for purchase, and Apple just got done unveiling their own watch, so we can imagine that you want our thoughts. Trust me when I say that there are plenty to share.
This is our Moto 360 review. (more…)

We just placed our order for the Moto X “Pure Edition” and wanted to make sure one thing was clear – it does indeed work on both AT&T and T-Mobile 4G LTE networks. The device ships “unlocked,” which means you can take it to either carrier without interference, you will simply need a SIM card and service from one or the other. (more…)
Like it said it would do, Motorola has gone ahead and made the new Moto X (2nd generation) available for pre-order this morning. Customers can choose either the AT&T version or the “Pure Edition,” which is an unlocked GSM model (this is the version to buy). The device is joined by the Moto Hint, Motorola’s new discreet Bluetooth ear bud, and the Turbo Charger, an accessory that can charge a depleted battery to 8 hours worth of juice in about 15 minutes.
Motorola has also re-stocked the Moto 360 in limited quantities.
We will have reviews of all products shortly. Stick with us! (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…)
Moto Voice, the rebranded Touchless Control that arrived with the new Moto X, updated today for the original Moto X and last year’s DROID family. The changelog simply states that Moto Voice is now “supported” on the DROID ULTRA, Mini, MAXX, and Moto X (1st generation). The update also supposedly brings support for the Moto 360, though we are showing that as having been included last week.
The update should be live – go grab it! (more…)
