Motorola boss: more wearables coming, maybe even a new phone

Motorola boss: more wearables coming, maybe even a new phone

With Motorola, you pretty much know what you’re getting. There are a few really good smartphones that make a mark at their respective price points, and a wearable. There are even a few neat accessories. At Mobile World Congress this week, Motorola President Rick Osterloh said nothing was going to change, either. Motorola will continue to iterate on their stuff, but will stay their course. Interestingly, Osterloh also suggests Motorola is probably done with tablets, a sector best left to Lenovo, in his view.

Moto E 2015 Unboxing: inside Motorola’s special package

Moto E 2015 Unboxing: inside Motorola’s special package

Inside the Motorola Mystery Package we were promised last week comes the Moto E. Our review unit, complete with a box that's massive. This box has some clever outer bits - a "Slide to Start" marking to implicate the package opening direction and a "Fragile" stamp that suggests this is BREAKING NEWS. Inside is a wild Motorola presentation center with sliding doors and an array of bumper covers to outfit the Moto E. A wooden USB stick with information on it about the device and a tag to get us in to the special showing.

Android Wear may run out of time as Apple Watch nears

Android Wear may run out of time as Apple Watch nears

Android Wear may have beaten Apple Watch to market, but demand for smartwatches running Google's OS hasn't been as rampant as some predicted, new research released today suggests. Over 720,000 Android Wear watches shipped in 2014, Canalys suggests, and while some like Motorola's Moto 360 can't be produced fast enough to meet demand, the overall diagnosis is that the smartwatch market is still up for grabs. While the research firm appears confident that Google will continue to improve Android Wear, the lingering question is whether those enhancements can come quickly enough.

Motorola returns to China with Nexus 6-alike Moto X Pro in tow

Now that Chinese company Lenovo holds the reins over Motorola, it was only natural that the smartphone maker will be making its presence known in one of the fastest growing mobile market in the world. All that will start this year with the arrival of three Motorola smartphones in the Chinese market. But Motorola has one rather odd surprise to add to its other odd surprises last year. There's a new Moto X Pro in tow, but, for all intents and purposes aside from the branding, it's basically the Nexus 6.

At CES next week, Hyundai is set to announce an Android Wear app for their Blue Link technology. As if starting the car from your wrist wasn’t enough, there are other functions as well.

Pebble now lets you interact via Android Wear notifications

With some slight variation, most smartwatches are essentially the same. The face shape and specs may change, but the overall interaction is equal, with notifications being the main reason people like them. One of the first smartwatches around, Pebble, has done a remarkable job staying relevant in the face of flashier options from Motorola, LG, and Apple. Now, your e-paper screen is getting a taste of Android Wear itself, with Pebble gaining the ability to show you Android Wear notifications.

Microsoft wrenches Torque search app onto your Android phone

Search is an important part of your day, if you’re connected to the world via a smartphone or other device. If you’re not sure of the answer, you just “Google it”, and you probably get what you need. If you would rather use Bing (and hey, good for you if you would), there’s an option called Torque. The app, for Android Wear devices, brought you Bing search results with the flick of your wrist. Now, you can get Torque on your smartphone, too.

Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out

Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out

Samsung faithful who have been feeling a tad jealous of LG and Motorola the past month might start feeling a little bit better now, if not even more anxious. The awaited Android 5.0 update for the Galaxy S5 has apparently started to roll out, at least in Poland. If so, then it practically marks the start of Lollipop's arrival on Samsung's early 2014 flagship, probably in Europe first, before the year ends. Perhaps a fitting Christmas gift to those who stuck with Samsung through thick or, lately, thin.
