Motorola plans on introducing the world to the Moto G tomorrow morning, but unfortunately for them, a few retailers jumped the gun today. Appearing on multiple UK e-retailer sites, including Amazon, press renders of the G and even the full spec sheet is now public information. Sucks for Moto, but great for us. (more…)
With Motorola’s MotoMaker phone customization service going live yesterday for a number of new carriers including Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint, I’d imagine that more than a few of you were trying to decide if the Moto X was finally for you. If you held out since the phone’s August launch, then consider using coupon code “THANKYOU10″ to shave off some extra cash. Because who doesn’t love saving 10%? (more…)
Back in August, Motorola removed the ability to engrave custom Moto X devices from MotoMaker, but with the launch of the service for all four major U.S. carriers, they have re-added the feature. On top of custom engraving, you can also purchase the device in a 32GB storage on any carrier, not only 16GB. Before this morning, Moto X devices on carriers besides AT&T were stuck with 16GB models, so this is big news for Moto X buyers. (more…)
The update that should improve the camera performance and squash a bunch of bugs for the DROID MAXX, ULTRA, and Mini – which Verizon detailed earlier this week - is now rolling out to all owners of these phones. Previously, only members of the soak test for each were receiving the update, but as of early this morning, the update has been made widely available. (more…)
In a case of taking “wearable technology” a bit too far, we have Motorola’s latest application for a patent. The latest tech that Motorola is trying to patent wants to cut down on the pesky background noise you have during phone calls thanks to the space between your mouth and the microphone. Moto wants to cut out the middleman here and put the mic directly on your neck: by tattooing it there. What? (more…)
A couple of weeks back, Motorola slashed the on-contract and full retail prices of the Moto X at AT&T by $100 to $99 (on-contract) and $479 (full retail) (MotoMaker included). At the time, we questioned whether or not we’d see a similar price drop from Verizon in the near future, since they are selling the exact same phone sans MotoMaker. They had also already dropped the prices of the entire DROID line, but for whatever reason held off initially on the Moto X. Well, the price on the Moto X is now $99 on-contract and the full retail price is $100 less as well, now at $499. (more…)
Earlier this week, Motorola sent out a “save the date” for November 13, the day they will unveil their next phone called the Moto G. Today, they have given us an exact time and place to join in on the phone’s unveiling: 6AM Pacific (9AM ET) via Google+ event. And that’s pretty much it. The event will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, a sign that likely points toward this being Motorola’s ultra-affordable global offering.
We already think we know almost all of the specs of this mid-range phone, so now we simply sit back and wait for a price.

According to @evleaks, the man who seems to know everything before it’s ever made official, T-Mobile customers should see access to MotoMaker starting November 8. Motorola’s customization service for the Moto X still remains an AT&T exclusive, but from other reports we have seen, it should be open to all other US carriers by November 11. (more…)
