Nexus X (Nexus 6) set to be released by end of October

We’ve been calling it the Nexus 6 for a while, but apparently, its final name will not be that at all. Although there is still no final name for the upcoming new Nexus device, at least internally, Motorola will be calling it the Nexus X. Sources are also saying that it is set for release by Halloween this year, but don’t expect any big announcement as this is set to be a “secret launch” just like what they did last year with the previous gen, which was, of course the Nexus 5.

Is this LG’s new, round smartwatch?

LG’s G Watch can be considered the first Android Wear smartwatch, if you’re keeping track of that sort of thing. The Moto 360 was then the second, and rounded out the Android Wear offerings (see what I did there?). A few flagship wearables later, LG is back with a second smartwatch, and they’ve taken a hint from Motorola this time.

Brazilian retailer comes out with new Moto X+1 listings

The website of Brazilian retailer Livraria Logos is becoming notorious for its Moto X+1 leaks, which – if you’ve been living without Internet for the past few months – is of course the code name for the new Motorola flagship device. The new Moto X listings are back on their website though, giving us at least decent info about the new device.

Droid X gets a new lease on life via CM11

We’re not hating on the Droid X – we think nobody who knows his Android history would ever be able to do that to the phone which at its peak was the “for real” iPhone killer. But just four years after its release, it is already considered ancient – such is the pace of technology today. Lo and behold, XDA senior member “Aaahh” has given the old phone a fitting swan song, by successfully installing CyanogenMod’s Android KitKat-based OS on it.

Best Buy might have leaked Moto 360’s retail price

To say that the soon to be announced Moto 360, the first round face smartwatch in the market, is highly anticipated is like saying that a full moon is, well, round. Those who are waiting to purchase their very first wearable are holding out for the official launch, expected to be this September 4th at the Motorola event. But the main concern right now is if this smartwatch running on Android Wear will cost an arm and a leg. Best Buy might have inadvertently jumped the gun as a product page on their mobile site showed the retail price of the Moto 360.

Verizon Moto S display protector leaked

Here’s more information on the “other” Motorola device coming out soon, called by some rumors by the code name “Shamu”. This device is also apparently a candidate for Google’s prestigious Nexus program – the next device on line as the Nexus 6.

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.

Google I/O 2014 attendees to get their Moto 360 soon

There were a few goodies given away at this year’s Google I/O Developers Conference, and a few of those who went were admittedly happy that they were given a choice of either an LG G Watch or a Samsung Gear Live to take home. The happiest, we think, are those who sat down for the keynote, who will be getting Motorola’s spanking new wearable – the Moto 360 – in their mail soon.
