Moto G announced, launching for $179 off-contract and unlocked in U.S. in January

Motorola just held a relatively short launch event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It may seem like an odd location, but the device being announced makes it absolutely clear why it chose Brazil. Simply put, the market this device is aiming at is huge in South America and parts of Asia. Particularly Brazil and India. This is about nailing the sub-$200 market. Motorola believes that 500 million people will by sub-$200 devices in … [read full article]

Google Sells Out Of 8GB Nexus 4 Online, Won’t Replace Inventory

A bit of disappointing news that might be wrapped in exciting news as the 8GB Nexus 4 sells out of Google’s Play Store. However, even as Google briefed The Verge the model won’t be replaced…it raises the question if a Nexus 5 is on the horizon. There’ s been no shortage of rumors on the Nexus 4 successor, including a back and forth on whether LG or Motorola … [read full article]

Moto X Review: Motorola’s First Smartphone On T-Mobile In Years

For a long time I’ve wanted to get my hands on an Android smartphone that is the right combination of size and specs. Many might (and will) argue that the Moto X doesn’t hold up on paper to the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One, but in my real-world experience it’s just as good. It remains very unfortunate that, for whatever reason, T-Mobile has decided not to offer, at least initially, the … [read full article]

T-Mobile Posts Moto X Support Page, Still No Launch Details

We’re still eagerly awaiting any kind of launch details to officially drop from T-Mobile surrounding the Moto X launch, but until then we’ve got a newly posted support page. For the most part, it’s just a placeholder now and I really don’t expect anything on the launch to be posted in this section, but it makes me hopeful T-Mobile might say something soon. T-Mobile CEO John Legere teased the release of … [read full article]

Motorola VP: Moto X Developer Editions “Rolling Out In Days”

  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still disappointed that T-Mobile didn’t pick up its own “branded” edition of the Moto X. I’ve been using an AT&T model for the past 10 days or so and…I love it. It’s size, its feel in the hand, it’s glorious. Sure, for spec-heads it won’t compare pound-for-pound against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One on … [read full article]
