Lenovo now has Ashton Kutcher promoting Moto phones

"The mobile phone is stuck." If you were told that those words were uttered by Ashton Kutcher, you'd probably start hearing it in the same tone as actor's "Dude, where's my car?" phrase. But Mr. Kutcher's tone on the Motorola blog where he uttered (wrote, actually) those words was serious, very serious. He deplores how innovation in smartphones have basically stagnated, likening it to TV technology where focus has simply been on bigger screens and lower prices. His solution? Why to get a Lenovo Moto smartphone, of course!

New Lenovo Moto smartphone coming in July

New Lenovo Moto smartphone coming in July

while most eyes are already on the flood of smartphones, including those from the likes of Samsung and LG, coming at MWC 2016 next month, the world's largest PC maker has come out to say that it too has a new smartphone coming soon. But "soon" here actually means way down in July. Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang revealed that a "more innovative, more attractive" Moto smartphone for the US will be revealed in a few months, which would make it the first Moto smartphone without the Motorola name and with Lenovo's brand instead.

Motorola will unlock your Moto X, but only on Verizon’s network

Motorola will unlock your Moto X, but only on Verizon’s network

If you purchased a Moto X back in 2014, you've probably been pretty upset at the fact that you won't be getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. A little while back, Motorola announced that they wouldn't be pushing the update to carrier-locked versions of the popular phone. But now the company does have some good news, in that department.

Lenovo Group SVP Chen Xudong has offered up some details about what Lenovo and Motorola have planned for their smartphone lines in 2016.

Motorola clarifies its rebranding scheme

Motorola clarifies its rebranding scheme

We've said it before and this time, Motorola itself is setting the record straight. Motorola Mobility, the formal name of the subsidiary that Lenovo purchased from Google, isn't going anywhere. It will remain as Motorola Mobility inside Lenovo and will, in fact, be given more control over the Chinese OEM's smartphone direction. What is going away, though apparently not completely, is the "Motorola" name, but only as it is used in official marketing materials, preferring to use the more hip "Moto" brand. In everything else, it's still Motorola. At least for now.

Moto 360 Sport now available in the US

Moto 360 Sport now available in the US

When Motorola revealed its new smartwatch for 2015, it had not just one but two models to show. While The Moto 360 2 is the nominal flagship of the two, the Moto 360 Sport does bring its own level of uniqueness, with some features that the 360 2 doesn't have. And after months of patiently waiting, that rugged and sporty smartwatch is now available for purchase, from Motorola directly among other places. And it will only set you back $299.99, which is quite on par for an Android Wear smartwatch these days.

Motorola is dead! Long live Moto! And Vibe

Motorola is dead! Long live Moto! And Vibe

Before you start hyperventilating and breaking down, no, Lenovo isn't killing Motorola, the company. It is, however, practically putting an end to an iconic name that has spanned decades. The Chinese manufacturer will be retiring the "Motorola" brand in favor of the shorter "Moto" to slap on its high end smartphones. That said, the Motorola name itself will live on but only in corporate talk and documents. Nothing consumers will regularly see. At the end of the day, all of Lenovo's smartphones will soon be under one, single, unified brand: Lenovo.

Lenovo Google Project Tango team-up date set

As of Q1 2016, Google will have officially teamed up with Lenovo to bring Project Tango to the public. The how and the when of the project will be revealed at the special event, but for now, we're pumped up about CES. There we'll undoubtedly see more of this collaboration, including word on whether or not this means Google will move forward with Project Tango with Windows or whether Lenovo will integrate Tango technology in to one of their Android devices. If so, where does this leave Motorola?

Droid Turbo 2 drop test from 900-feet up

Droid Turbo 2 drop test from 900-feet up

Most smartphone users know that if you drop your smartphone while standing up onto a hard surface, odds are if it's not in a case, the screen will be broken. The new Motorola Droid Turbo 2 smartphone is supposed to have a very strong screen that Motorola bills as shatterproof. Some smartphone loving geeks took one of those Droid Turbo 2 smartphones and took it 900-feet into the air.

Moto 360 Sport Review Part II: what no other device has

Moto 360 Sport Review Part II: what no other device has

While my first inclination was to title this post "what no other smartwatch has", that just wouldn't be accurate. What we've got here is a bona-fide piece of technology in the Moto 360 Sport that's never been released in any device before. Here, according to Motorola, the Moto 360 Sport equips a "first of its kind LCD display." It's a first of its kind, that is to say, in that it "combines a traditional backlit transmissive screen with a front lit reflective technology." The best of both worlds - always visible.

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

The first thing that struck me about the Moto 360 Sport is how together it felt. While the first Moto 360 seemed the epitome of style at the time back when it was launched in late 2014, it was also rolling with a replaceable watch strap system that was ever-so-slightly more difficult to work with than its competition. Here in 2015 you have the choice of a replaceable strap with the Moto 360 (2015 edition) with a more traditional set of watch strap arms or using the Sport, a watch with one strap that's attached directly to the bulk of the watch.

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

Moto 360 Sport hands-on and first impressions: just as nice

The Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 Sport from Motorola has arrived on our review bench this week and we've taken it on a stroll. Before our full Moto 360 Sport review begins, we've got a few points we need to go over, starting with our initial impressions. As it turns out, this watch isn't the "lesser" version of the Moto 360 that we expected it to be. In fact, the design of this piece of equipment makes us feel as though Motorola's somehow kept the finer points of the non-"sport" model Moto 360 (2015) whilst adding a more robust bit of body in its rubbery silicone "sporty" watch band.
