Moto X

Moto Maker now available in France, Germany, UK

When Motorola unveiled the new Moto X earlier this month, the mostly positive reviews have fuelled the anticipation for when it will actually be available for purchase. Some folks over in Europe who are looking forward to having it should be even more excited with this new announcement from Motorola. The Moto Maker is now live for France, Germany and the UK, even though their new flagship will not be available yet for the said region.

Four new apps for Moto X released on the Google Play Store

Motorola has been wise enough to release new apps through the Google Play Store instead of inside a firmware update for one great reason: it’s faster. Compared to bringing new Android apps exclusive to Motorola devices on a firmware update, adding them to the Play Store allows Moto X owners to be easily notified of the release. This way, they are able to download the apps immediately even without a system update.

New Motorola products for pre-order starting September 16

The newly-announced Motorola products, unveiled at the IFA 2014 in Berlin just two weeks ago, will now be available for pre-ordering through various sales channels. This includes the new Moto X (through carrier AT&T), the Moto Pure Edition, Moto Hint and Moto Turbo Charger. The other good news is that their round-faced smartwatch, the Moto 360, has been re-stocked after selling out since it was released in the market almost two weeks ago.

‘Pure Edition’ is Motorola’s unlocked, direct-sale Moto X

Straight from its launch at IFA 2014, we already have the notion that the new Moto X will be one of the darlings of people looking to upgrade their Android devices this holiday season. Most people will get it under contract, with the USD$99.99 price tag looking very nice indeed. But there are those who will want the unbranded, unlocked, direct-sale version straight from Motorola – that one will be called the Moto X Pure Edition.

Moto Voice: more control over device through spoken commands

Swiping and typing on your smartphone is so like 3 years ago. As more people begin to discover the joy of ordering your device around through the power of speaking, OEMs will continue to develop better voice controls for their smartphones and tablets. Motorola has now renamed and revamped Touchless Control into Moto Voice, and it will now work with the Japanese tech company’s recently announced new devices like the Moto X (2nd generation) and the Moto Hint.

New features might trickle down to old Moto X, G users

Motorola’s Vice President of Product Management Punit Soni may have just given a lifeline to those who own last year’s variant of the Moto X and the Moto G. With the launch of the new Moto X at IFA 2014, we’re seeing a lot of new features to the brand spanking new upgrade – but there is hope for the old Moto X (and possibly Moto G) yet.
