IFA 2014 expectation roundup: smartwatches galore

While IFA 2014 itself formally starts in a few days, many companies have scheduled their press events ahead to leave IFA open to actual device demos and showcases. But what do we expect from manufacturer's this time of year? As it turns out, quite a lot. Unsurprisingly, a lot of those also revolve around the tech industry's latest babies: smartwatches. Of course, it isn't just all about smartwatches, as we're expecting to see a few smartwatches and some tablets these coming days as well.

Motorola’s Droid Razr M rebranded as Luge for Verizon

If Verizon’s new smartphone offering, Luge by Motorola, sounds and looks familiar, well, it should be if you know your Motorola stuff. It is actually a rebranded Droid Razr M and is now being positioned as a big screen device powered by the carrier’s 4G/LTE network. It is being offered as a pre-paid no-contract handset with a $100 discount from its original price.

Moto Skip to have Bluetooth connectivity, other functions

A gadget that unlocks your smartphone? Most of us would call that “our fingers” but Motorola believed that having a small and nifty gadget to quickly unlock your Moto X with a tap was something that their users needed. Hence the launch of the Moto X Skip sometime last year. It didn’t really set the market ablaze with its release but it looks like it’s going to get an upgrade of sorts, with Bluetooth connectivity and some other uses rather than just to unlock the phone.

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.
