Moto X Moto Maker estimated shipments slip to 13 days, weather to blame

The Moto Maker website once had an estimated delivery of just a few days. But it looks like that estimate has slowly been creeping up. Several readers commented on Monday about how the estimate was sitting at 8 days and it looks like that has been pushed to 13 days as of today. The delay is as a result of the Moto X assembly plant being located in Fort Worth, Texas and the recent storms that have been affected much of the country.

Moto G review

While it would probably make more sense to compare the Moto G to the Moto X, we cannot help but compare it to the Nexus 5. In part that may be due to our recent Nexus 5 usage (we reviewed the N5 and have been carrying it daily since), but we are also making the comparison given they are both available unlocked and with attractive price points. The thing is, the Nexus 5 is the top-tier and the Moto G is the mid-tier. That thought follows the patterns we see with the specs as well as the price. Anyway, talk of the Nexus 5 aside, how about we get into the Moto G, beginning with the hardware.

Moto G source software released, paving way for customization

The Moto G source codes have been released, letting you hack into Moto G’s Zion mainframe and end the rebellion. If you’re into development of custom kernels or other fun stuff for Motorola’s new mid-range monster, you are now free and clear to do so with the blessing of the mothership. While it seems a bit strange to be excited for mid-range customization, it could be a crucial step for both Motorola and Android.

Moto G gets a winter snow boot animation

We have been spending some time with the Moto G recently. Last week we shared a bit of hands-on experience with the Flip Shell cover for the handset and while putting the finishing touches on our full review, we noticed a new boot animation. It seems the Motorola Boot Services app has been updated and it brings a bit of winter.

Moto G makes tidy profit for Google, according to analysts

If you thought there was no way Motorola was able to make money form the Moto G, think again. A new study posits that Motorola has worked in a tidy profit into each Moto G handset, and will clear about 5% from each sale once all is said and done. For consumers, this is great; we get a really nice device at a stellar price. For other OEMs, it could pressure them to follow suit.

Moto G Flip Shell hands-on

Following a lengthy series of rumors, Motorola officially announced the Moto G at an event back in mid-November. Since that point we have been watching the handset begin arriving. The North American launch began in Canada and that was followed up with an earlier than expected release in the US market. But along with the announcement for the Moto G itself, Motorola also detailed some accessories. With that in mind, we have recently been spending some time with the Moto G and for today, we have a hands-on with the Flip Shell.

Moto G available via Amazon, Koodo

The Moto G has many smartphone customers excited. For those stepping up from a feature phone, the Moto G brings an attractive price point without the need for a contract. It also packs a good enough battery to last the day, and specs that won’t disappoint for those who are just looking for something else.

Moto G root solution arrives as Superboot

Superboot, a Moto G root solution has recently been unveiled by Paul O'Brien at MoDaCo. Rooting your Moto G using Superboot appears to be a relatively quick and easy process. And nicely, this will work with Mac, Windows and Linux computers. The one catch here, your Moto G will need to have an unlocked bootloader before the root process can begin.
