Motorola may be getting shipped out to Lenovo after Google sold the company, but it is still very close to Mountain View and particularly Android. That was in evidence yesterday as the two companies launched the fantastic Nexus 6 smartphone, the best handset Motorola of Google have ever made. Of course, the Nexus 6 is among the first devices to run Android 5.0 Lollipop, but Motorola has shown its commitment to the 5.0 cause today by detailing its plans for it other smartphones.
Another day brings another DROID Turbo leak as Motorola's Verizon exclusive smartphone draws ever nearer to release. This time we have been treated to the best image of the smartphone yet, revealing the front and rear of the handset. The leak comes from an anonymous source but seems to be official and tallies with previous looks of the DROID Turbo from last week.
We are pretty familiar with the upcoming DROID Turbo, so much so that there will have to be a fairly substantial surprise at launch for this not to be everything we expect it to be. The Motorola built Verizon exclusive smartphone has been oft leaked and today Big Red itself is offering a concrete date for its launch.
We got a bit of an official look at the upcoming DROID Turbo this week when a user guide PDF from Verizon leaked, showing the specs and the design of the smartphone. The Motorola built device was only showed face on for a product page shot, but now we can see it in a full render that looks like it is for official press shots. This sexed up image gives us a better look at the upcoming handset and reveals it will be a handsome looking thing.
Motorola has had its big roll out of the year when it launched the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360, but the company is not quite finished yet. The US brand that has recently been sold to Lenovo from Google has two more handsets set to launch before the end of the year, although the company will be mostly handing the reigns to other companies. We already know plenty the Google Nexus 6, but today we can see more about the Motorola made Verizon DROID series.
Motorola may have recently released a new Moto G, but the older model still remains a compelling choice, especially if you want a bit of LTE thrown into the mix. The Moto G LTE launched five months ago and if you want a 4G packing version of Motorola's budget king then it is the only game in town. It is also now available on AT&T in the United States, so the carrier confirmed today in a press release.
Motorola's new Moto 360 smartwatch is making its way across the Atlantic and is landing in the UK, available on the O2 network in the country. The wearable comes to the country with a price tag of £199.99 and is an exclusive to O2, or at least that is the situation at the moment. However, the way the 360 has been selling in the US suggests that the device will sell out quick in UK just like it has in the US, where it sold out in double time.
When Motorola launched the Moto 360 at the start of last month it was very well received. The device may not answer all the questions for smartwatch functionality, but it gets most of them right in terms of design. The wearable promptly sold out of inventory within days, even though Motorola has yet to launch the version with a stainless steel strap.
This is third story on the Motorola Shamu in three days, so we are beating a dead horse a bit here. However, we started the chain, so by heck are we going to finish it. It seems the pace is gathering around this device as yet another image of it has leaked, and we still do not even know exactly what this smartphone will be.
Yesterday we brought you news of the newest Nexus handset that is being built by Motorola. 9to5Google acquired plenty of details about the handset and even built a mock-up of the device from what they knew. Of course, it was not 100% whether the mock-up was the finished article, but today there seems to be some clearer confirmation.
