Nexus 6 Shows Up on Verizon’s Site as “Coming Soon”

Even though Google announced the Nexus 6 back in October, saying at the time that it would be available at all major US carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon), there is still one who has yet to sell the device in stores or online – Verizon. We could speculate all day as to why that is, but what we do know for sure is that Big Red confirmed to us shortly after Google announced the phone, that they planned to carry it. They wouldn’t offer up a timeline, price, or any other detail, only that they would carry it at some point down the road.  (more…)

Qualcomm: Forget Samsung! All These Other Huge…Errr…Awesome Manufacturers Love the Snapdragon 810!

What happens when a multi-billion dollar company loses its biggest customer and has to adjust its earnings for the 2nd half of a year? Apparently, they turn to all their much smaller, aren’t-going-anywhere-because-we-can’t customers for uplifting quotes on why their product is still the best!

Motorola Still Loves the Keylink, Will Bring It Back Once They Have Appropriate Inventory

Yesterday, a concerned number of you noticed that Motorola removed the Keylink, a $25 lost key/smartphone finder key fob-like thingy, from their accessory site. The move was a bit troubling for those who were hoping to acquire one at some point because moments after it was introduced back in November, it sold out and has yet to be re-stocked. Seeing it disappear might have led you to believe that it was gone for good.  (more…)

Motorola Returns to China Today With the Moto X – Moto X Pro and Others Coming Soon

Motorola officially made its return to China this morning in a keynote that was filled with dancing, fist pumping, and excitement. The event kicked off the launch of their whole product line-up in an area of the world that Motorola hasn’t been for some time. If it means anything to you, the Chicago-based smartphone maker pointed out that they managed to jump into China just three months after Lenovo closed their acquisition of them. Of course, Lenovo is a Chinese company, so it’s not that surprising that it all came through this quickly.

Anyways, today kicks off the launch of Motorola’s line-up that includes the Moto X (2nd gen), Moto G (2nd gen) with LTE, Moto X Pro, and Moto Hint. The Moto 360 will come some time later, but for now, Moto wants us to focus on those first four products.  (more…)

Former Motorola CEO and current Dropbox COO Dennis Woodside sat down recently for a brief chat with The Telegraph to discuss his current role, but also make a comment about the Nexus 6 that may interest a number of you.
