Yesterday, the folks at HelloMotoHK gave us a look at what they described as the back cover to a new DROID phone from Motorola. This morning, they posted at even bigger image, this time with four different phone backs said to be of (in order, left-to-right) a new DROID Mini, Moto G (3rd gen), the DROID from yesterday, and the new Moto X (3rd gen). While we have no proof as to what any of these phones may or may not be, one thing is for sure, Motorola appears to have settled on a similar design theme for 2015. (more…)
Last week, we told you about a new Motorola device that had stopped off at the FCC looking like the company’s next unlocked flagship phone. It featured a body bigger than the DROID Turbo, supported turbo charging, 802.11ac MiMo WiFi, LTE Advanced, and almost all of the US LTE bands outside of Verizon’s. We speculated that it is the rumored 5.5-inch QHD device currently hiding under codename “Kinzie.”
This morning, after looking through a couple of other recent Motorola FCC filings that could be new Moto G, E, or DROID line variants, we’re pretty sure we found the Verizon equivalent to the phone above. Well, it may be even better than that.
Let’s talk briefly about them all. (more…)
Over the next 15 hours, or until supplies run out, you can pick up a 18mm Moto 360 in Champagne Gold for just $199 on the Best Buy website. Do note, with its 18mm bands, this watch is designed for those among us with petite wrists. If you need something bigger, look for a smartwatch with 22-24mm bands. (more…)
We told you yesterday that the Moto X (1st gen) on AT&T was primed for a soak test of Lollipop at some point this week, with invites arriving in the inboxes of our readers. You may as well forget that we had that conversation, as AT&T updated its support pages for the device this morning, stating that Android 5.1 Lollipop is rolling out to all today. Well, it could just be in small batches with a greater rollout happening over the next few days, but because AT&T is now talking about the update publicly, we tend to believe that it’s ready for everyone.

Motorola, through its MotoMakers program (a small group of their biggest fans), is hosting a massive sitewide sale on almost all of their current products. Each of their MotoMakers has been given a special coupon code that can be used to grab pretty significant discounts on items like the Nexus 6, Chromecast, Moto Hint, TurboPower chargers, Moto 360 bands, and wireless headsets.
Some of these products, like their best Bluetooth headsets, are almost $50 off. The Chromecast is $10 off. Moto 360 leather bands and TurboPower chargers are almost $10 off. Seriously, these are a bunch of good deals. (more…)
Last week, the DROID Turbo was updated by Verizon and Motorola to run Android 5.1, after a very long wait by owners. Given that the Turbo was running Kit Kat up until last week, Turbo owners are still probably getting used to all of the changes inside Lollipop, and we want to know how it’s going for you so far.

A mystery Motorola phone stopped off at the FCC (ID IHDT56UC2) a couple of days ago looking like a phone that could be the company’s next unlocked flagship. I say that because the phone is slightly bigger than the DROID Turbo, supports almost every single LTE band (sans Verizon’s), 802.11ac MIMO WiFi, carrier aggregation (LTE Advanced), and works with Motorola’s Turbo Charger.
