Motorola Mobility is now in Lenovo’s pocket

Lenovo is now the proud owner of Motorola Mobility, the ink finally dry on the acquisition of the smartphone company.

Moto E hands-on: Is Motorola the new mass-market king?

Moto E hands-on: Is Motorola the new mass-market king?

Motorola has big small hopes for the new Moto E. Most affordable smartphone in the company's line-up, the $129 Android handset aims to differentiate itself not with the fattest spec sheet, or the most distinctive design, but by actually listening to the target audience rather than telling them what they want.
