Moto Z 2017 “accidentally” revealed by Motorola itself

Companies take great pains to put a tight cover on upcoming products, but leaks do still get out, sometimes even from the companies themselves.

These Moto Mods could make the Moto Z more interesting

Lenovo and Motorola (formerly Moto formerly Motorola) haven’t given up on the modular phone idea, even when its peers have and even when the market doesn’t seem to be that enthusiastic about it. In a few months’ time, however, we might be thankful it didn’t either. While the initial set of Moto Mods for the Moto Z family have been less than inspiring, save for a one or two exceptions, others outside of Motorola’s offices may have better ideas, some of which have found their way to Indiegogo to make those ideas real.

Moto is dead! Long live Motorola!

Moto is dead! Long live Motorola!

Names come and go and rebranding is pretty much fact of life. But no turnover is probably quicker than Lenovo’s game with Motorola, formerly Moto, formerly Motorola.

Moto G5, G5 Plus details leaked by retailer ahead of MWC debut

Moto G5, G5 Plus details leaked by retailer ahead of MWC debut

Leaks and insider tips are not hard to come by these days, some of them more reliable than others. But once in a while, the source is none other than the manufacturer itself or one of its retail partners. Of course, in those cases the leak is accidental, often blamed on a premature click on the “Publish” button and often pulled down within minutes. But the Internet is like the metaphorical elephant that never forgets, providing caches and screenshots for everyone to see. Such is the case with Spanish retailer KTRONIX when it accidentally published details of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, way ahead of its scheduled announcement.

Moto Z Moto Mods released soon to Indiegogo

A modular smartphone is really only as strong as the modules available for it, and, frankly, they’re really not that much currently.

Two Nexus-like smartwatches set to lead Android Wear in 2017

Next year Google will be releasing two new Android Wear smartwatches in the style of their Nexus smartphone line. There's very little to get in Google's way in the market for these devices as the only massive competition out today is the Apple Watch. According to a recent study, nobody wants a smartwatch at the moment - except some Apple fans, apparently, who all want the Apple Watch. So why would Google want to continue rolling in this market?
