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.

Motorola teases something new arriving next week

Motorola teases something new arriving next week

Though Jony Ive may disagree, Motorola has a lot going for them. After a brief stint at Google to recalibrate themselves, they’re now under the auspices of Lenovo. They’re doing really good work, too, with the new Moto X winning much praise while the Moto 360 makes a home on wrists. That tandem might not be enough, though, and the company has begun hinting that more is on the way. In an email to some press, Moto says they’re ready to seed something new.

Motorola boss rebuffs Apple’s Ive Moto Maker slight

Motorola boss rebuffs Apple’s Ive Moto Maker slight

Whether you use Apple products or not, you have to admit; they’re really gorgeous, masterfully crafted devices. Jony Ive and his crew dedicate a lot of time and energy into creating some really great hardware, so his views on the subject of design should be treated with a level of respect. I mean, the guy was knighted — he’s probably worth hearing out. Still, the guy running Motorola was non-plussed about recent statements Ive made. Though he didn’t specifically call Motorola out, Ive’s comments were pretty transparent.

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

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.

Nexus 6 returns via Motorola, ships early next year

Nexus 6 returns via Motorola, ships early next year

Since being launched in early November, the Nexus 6 has had trouble staying put. We can’t find it via Google Play (reliably), and carriers aren’t guaranteed to have it, either. AT&T famously pulled the Nexus 6 from their rotation due to a software glitch, and Verizon isn’t even trying to make a home for Nexus. Even when it is in stock somewhere, supplies and options are limited. Motorola, who manufactured the Nexus 6, has brought it back to their online portal, with all variants and colors being made available.

Motorola Keylink can find, unlock your phone via BLE

Witha ll they have going on, Motorola has pushed out some pretty impressive devices and accessories. Their DROID Turbo hides a beastly battery, and the Moto X (2014) is a nice upgrade form the original. Motorola also has some decent bluetooth earbuds on offer, and now have another bluetooth accessory that will appeal to a broader audience. The Motorola Keylink is a key chain that links to your phone via Bluetooth, and can be activated from up to 100 feet away. That’s not all it does, though.

Samsung, Motorola midrange refresh spotted in benchmarks

Samsung, Motorola midrange refresh spotted in benchmarks

A lot of attention is paid to flagship devices, but those with the most impact on end-users are often mid-range. Last year, both Motorola and Samsung focussed on the mid-range segment, as well as its ability to make an impact in emerging markets like India. Two new devices, one from each of those two companies, has been spotted in benchmark testing. Though unnamed, it seems as though both Motorola and Samsung are following up on their mid-range success last year.

Motorola’s Nexus 6 sales trigger angst; UK prices confirmed

Motorola’s Nexus 6 sales trigger angst; UK prices confirmed

Motorola has begun sales of the Nexus 6, while Google has confirmed pricing for the much-anticipated smartphone in the UK. Unsurprisingly, given the Android Lollipop device's relatively high cost - at least from what we're used to from a Nexus - in the US, those in the UK won't be getting a cheap phone. Meanwhile, in a move that seems destined to prompt no small amount of ire among would-be Nexus owners, Motorola is keeping its stock secrets until the very end.

Motorola Mobility is now in Lenovo’s pocket

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. Brought out from under Google's umbrella - or, as some might argue, from beneath its shadow - the deal will see Motorola continue to operate its own brand, as well as further develop the Moto and DROID franchises that have included recent releases like the Moto X and the DROID Turbo. It also means a return to the Chinese market, something Motorola has been absent from for some years.
