Motorola's Monday Migraine.
Tagged: Moto X
Motorola has gone full swing with the holiday discounts. Last week brought news of a Moto X Cyber Monday sale. Not to mention, Motorola was offering some Black Friday discounts as well. Well, as today is Cyber Monday -- the focus appears to be on the Moto X discounts. Specifically, for the Moto Maker and Developer Edition models.
Moto X owners have a pretty decent Black Friday deal waiting for them at the Motorola website. Available until Sunday, select accessories are 30% off, and the Moto X itself starts at just $99. That’s a whole lot of customization without having to break the bank.
wood backs may not yet be available for the Moto X, however Motorola has stepped up this morning with a solid Cyber Monday offer. They do warn that supplies will be limited, however the offer will be available for all off-contract models of the Moto X including Moto Maker and Developer Edition models.
Motorola announced they would have the Android 4.4 Kit Kat update available for all Moto x users within weeks. That statement was made during the opener of the Moto G unveil and took place back in mid-November. Specifically, on November 13th. And well, it looks like Motorola has been working hard to keep that promise and we are now seeing Kit Kat arrive for another carrier branded Moto X.
Motorola has just unleashed a double whammy of apps for owners of its most recent smartphones. While these apps are exclusive to some Motorola devices, putting them up on Google Play Store will allow the company to iterate over and distribute the app far more quickly than it could if they were baked into the firmware.
"matter of weeks." The Kit Kat update began rolling out for Verizon Wireless users earlier in the week and we saw reports of a soak test starting for AT&T users earlier today. And now, Motorola has announced the update for T-Mobile users.
Developers can now get unlocked boot loaders without voiding the warranty on their Developer Edition devices. It might be the most significant, supportive change to policy we’ve ever seen for the Android platform.
Motorola promised that Kit Kat would be coming to the Moto X in a "matter of weeks" when they announced the Moto G earlier in the month. The specifics were light at the time, however as we often see with Android updates, the specifics would come down to successful testing and carrier approval. That said, it looks like the AT&T test period has begun.
