Moto X to arrive in France and Germany in early February

Along with the upcoming UK release, Motorola will also have the Moto X available for those in France and Germany. The availability will begin on February 1st, the same day as we saw announced for the UK market. But unlike the availability date, the price for those in France and Germany will be a bit different.

Europe looks to ban mobile roaming charges with new legislation

Some recently leaked details on new legislation in Europe looks to ban those pesky and sometimes outrageous roaming charges accrued on mobile devices. If the details from The Guardian are accurate, The European Commission will be shutting down the possibility for networks to charge roaming fees.
