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.
Motorola's Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch has only been on the market for a few weeks, but the company is already tweaking it to make sure the users get the best experience possible. The company has rolled out a new update today that carries the build number KGW42R and is available to download now.
The Moto X is now even more of a sold flagship proposition than it was last year, and the 2014 model could arguably standalone without the Moto Maker feature. However, having the pre-purchase customization tool on board is hardly a bad thing and new devices purchased using Moto Maker are now shipping to consumers.
Verizon and Motorola's new DROID device is set to land next months and as we said last week, there will only be one handset and it will once again be based off the new Moto X, Motorola's flagship device. Thanks to HelloMoto UK, we now have an idea what the name of the smartphone will be, with the tipster saying the new DROID will be called the DROID Turbo.
The Moto X 2013 may have just been replaced by a new 2014 edition, but users of the first version will get support for a while yet. AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon have already updated their Moto X variants to the latest version of Android, the 4.4.4 build. However, T-Mobile has so far been absent, but the Uncarrier has today changed that by finally issuing its Moto X with the bump, although the actual update is coming directly from Motorola in this instance.
Motorola is getting a lot of things right with its new Moto X. Firstly, the American company has crafted an amazing flagship smartphone, an improvement on the first model in every way. Secondly, the brand also seems to be getting pricing right this time, with the Moto X set to land soon with a very enticing on contract price.
Have Motorola and Sprint had a falling out? It has been revealed today the Motorola's new flagship, the Moto X, will not be available via Sprint, the third largest carrier in the United States. The handset went live through AT&T and T-Mobile today, with a Verizon variant due later in the month, but Sprint has been left out.
