Moto X

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.

The new Moto X builds on an already successful device

Specs for the new Moto X, back then called X+1 or even X2, have already been leaked and some of them even came true. But it is only when you get the bigger picture that you are able to see how all of those fall into place. Now that we've got our eyes and hands on with the new flagship, we can safely say that Motorola has another winner in the making.

Moto Skip to have Bluetooth connectivity, other functions

A gadget that unlocks your smartphone? Most of us would call that “our fingers” but Motorola believed that having a small and nifty gadget to quickly unlock your Moto X with a tap was something that their users needed. Hence the launch of the Moto X Skip sometime last year. It didn’t really set the market ablaze with its release but it looks like it’s going to get an upgrade of sorts, with Bluetooth connectivity and some other uses rather than just to unlock the phone.

Digital Tattoos to have more non-Moto X functions soon

While the recently launched Digital Tattoos were really cool (and we’d like to have one, really), if you don’t have a Motorola Moto X, then it’s practically useless. But the makers of the semi-permanent tattoo, VivaLnk, have said that they are now looking into other ways that it can be used, other than just to unlock smartphones. They are set to release a new set of digital tattoos that can be reprogrammed for other functions.
