Be sure to reboot your Moto X this morning if you like seeing newly released boot animations from Motorola. The 2014 Fall boot sequence is hitting devices as I type this. Well, it’s hitting the original Moto X, I haven’t been able to check the new Moto X yet.
Let us know if you see it! (more…)
While Sprint and T-Mobile have seemingly passed on the new Moto X (2nd gen), US Cellular is willing to add this year’s flagship from Motorola to their line-up. As of today, you can buy the Moto X in black for $99 with new 2-year contract. Later in October, US Cellular will also make the black leather and bamboo backs available at a price of $149 on-contract. (more…)
Real 2-day battery life can now be had at Verizon for free with a new 2-year contract, thanks to a price drop of the DROID MAXX. The phone was previously listed at around $50 on-contract, but with the DROID Turbo headed to Big Red in the very near future, it’s probably time for them to blaze through remaining inventory.

Well, these images are creations that are based off of information we have received, just like every other “leak” you have seen over the last couple of weeks. With that said, we have confidence in presenting these in-house made renders of what we believe the Nexus 6, made by Motorola, will look like from the back in both white and black. (more…)
In an interview with The Canadian Press to promote his new book about Google and to announce a $1.5 million grant to Actua, Google’s Eric Schmidt talked through a number of wide ranging topics. Of course, we tend to focus on the mobile or Android-related stuff that Big “E” mentions from time to time, something he graced us with yet again. The interviewer asked Schmidt what his current phone was because Canadians like to talk about Blackberry still, and Schmidt has been a fan of Blackberry for years. While Eric admitted that he still carries around a Blackberry, he noted that his current phone is the “Motorola Razr X.”
Umm, what? (more…)
Is that the Nexus 6 aka “Shamu” aka Willy-has-been-freed aka your-hand-needs-to-grow-in-the-next-month-if-you-like-Nexus-phones, in the wild? It could very well be. We see a similar form factor to the new Moto X, which the new Nexus is largely based off of. We see what appears to be an Android L “back” button. We have lowered volume and power buttons on the side. It looks huge (or does it?). Or maybe this person has small hands.
You tell us. (more…)
On Monday morning, Moto 360 owners couldn’t help but take to the internet to talk about the “dramatic” increases they were now seeing with their smartwatches thanks to an update that rolled out to the masses on Friday. Even Tim pinged me that morning to mention that the 360 was a “bossy little watch now” because of the battery life he had witnessed over the weekend. After posting about the potentially amazing news, our comments filled up with others who were experiencing similarly extended single-life charges. Some were even considering switching Ambient Mode back on. Seriously. (more…)
The Moto 360 is back in-stock through Motorola’s store in either black or stone. We don’t know for how long (limited quantities available again), so if you are at all interested, act fast.
As a reminder, the latest update appears to dramatically increase battery life, in case that was one of your concerns. We will have more to report on that tomorrow, but after a full day of testing, we would tend to agree that it does help.
Our Moto 360 review is also available should you need further convincing. (more…)
