Motorola invite We have just received an invite for a Motorola Moto event in Chicago on September 4th, where the company is going to launch a new device.The event will take place at the same time as the IFA trade show in Berlin where several Android giants will be rolling out new devices. However, with Motorola's Moto X+1 flagship replacement due for an end of September launch, this device can only be one of two things as far as some are concerned, unless the American company has tricked us. Remember, this is a Moto event, so the device launched will not be the Nexus 6 collaboration with Google, nor will it be to show off a new DROID. The first option is that it is the new Moto G being rolled out by Motorola, a device that has been leaked in recent weeks. The Moto G 2 will be a similar mix of strong specs and extreme affordability as the first model and is expected to arrive with a refreshed design. The other option is that the company will roll out its Moto 360 wearable smart watch. This is one of the most anticipated tech products of the year because it looks like Motorola has done everything right to create perhaps the first truly desirable smart watch. We know that the 360 is due to land before the end of the summer, so this is quite possibly the event for that launch. Certainly, Motorola would want to show the device off, so a press gathering would be ideal. Of course, it is possible that the company has brought ahead the launch for the Moto X+1 flagship by a few weeks and will launch that handset. However, we have another theory... if you look closely at the invite, it is clear that Motorola is going to launch all three of the devices mentioned above and the reported launch for the X+1 was a decoy. It would certainly make sense to create a splash with all three products, because each is fairly significant in its own right. We would not be surprised at all if we saw the Moto X+1, Moto G 2, and the Moto 360 arrive in Chicago next month and that is certainly what the invite is suggesting. Watch this space.
