Lenovo smartphone numbers not enough for Q4 2014 profits

Lenovo smartphone numbers not enough for Q4 2014 profits

Many have pointed to the writing on the wall for the PC business, looking towards to smartphones for the future. While that may have been true to some extent for Lenovo, the world's largest PC maker, it isn't the complete story. Lenovo has just revealed its report card for the last quarter of 2014 as well as its full year evaluation of that year. And while its smartphone shipments have indeed improved, partly thanks to its acquisition of Motorola, those numbers weren't enough to save its sinking profits.

Moto G 3rd gen makes a surprise appearance online

Motorola's little powerhouse budget smartphone, the Moto G (which lies somewhere in the space below the Moto X but above the Moto E) has seen ample success both in its first and second generation iterations. The third-generation of the Moto G is expected but thus far unannounced -- that hasn't stopped it from cropping up on a retailer's website, however, a trend with the product that's starting to become a pattern. The 3rd generation Moto G recently appeared (somewhat) on the retailer website Flipkart, where a few details were included.

Moto 360 successor leaked to have 360×360 resolution

After its initial bout of fame, the Moto 360 has seemingly faded into the background, especially with the arrival of some pretty strong contenders. That's not to say that the Moto 360 has become any less the smartwatch darling that it was, but Motorola does need to step up a bit if it wants to stay on top. A successor to that smartwatch might already be in the works, as "accidentally" leaked last month. Now a new leak has come up claiming that the next Moto 360 will have a higher resolution screen.

Flipkart teases Moto Maxx for India

If you haven't let the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 or HTC One M9 fill your mind just yet, you might remember one of Motorola's more interesting 2014 smartphones.

It is the latter that might be coming to India all the way from Latin America, giving smartphone users there an intriguing yet enticing smartphone option, even with the new flagships on the horizon.

Qualcomm may have admitted to the loss of a "large customer", which everyone knows by now to be Samsung, but the chip maker is far from ready to abdicated the mobile processor market throne. It has now called the banners of different manufacturers to come to its aid and convince the public, investors, and other manufacturers that there is nothing to fear from the Snapdragon 810 and that it is the chip to have for 2015. Noticeably but unsurprisingly, Samsung is absent from the roll call.

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.

Moto Maxx might be a DROID Turbo for the rest of the world

Moto Maxx might be a DROID Turbo for the rest of the world

The DROID Turbo is a undoubtedly a drool-worthy smartphone, one that strangely eclipses the new Moto X in terms of specs but still comes in a considerably smaller package than the almost equivalent Nexus 6, also made by Motorola. The only wart on this device's metaphorical face is that it is forever exclusive to Verizon, which isn't a bad thing if you're a Verizon customer. There might be still some light at the end of the tunnel, however, with a certain Moto Maxx leaked to be a DROID Turbo for the rest of us.
