Sony SmartEyeglass to enter tech eyewear market

Almost everybody who’s capable of producing tech eyewear is coming after Google Glass in a big way, and Japanese consumer electronics outfit Sony isn’t one to get left behind. It’s releasing the Sony SmartEyeglass (we guess people are running out of novel names for tech eyewear) to compete in this segment, although it doesn’t have software of its own as of now and is relying on third party developers to work with their SDK.

Possible new Motorola DROID seen in FCC, Verizon-bound

Fresh from the updraft of market love for its product launches at IFA 2014 – namely the Moto 360 and the new Moto X – a possible new Motorola device is headed towards US carrier Verizon, and could be a beast of a phone.

‘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.

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.

Sony declares ‘end-of-life’ for a number of Xperia devices

With all the new devices coming out of the recently concluded IFA 2014, it seems an inevitable counterpoint that some old devices that are part of these manufacturer’s catalogs will get the proverbial axe.

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.

Google Glass, Moto 360 now available via Play Store

This week, to add to all the hysteria at IFA 2014, Google has updated its device store on the Google Play displays with two new devices – that is the Google Glass Explorer Edition and the Moto 360.

Also, Motorola’s new roundface thingamajig has also been made available.

Samsung Smart MultiXpress printers are powered by Android
