Motorola Connect update brings new watchfaces for Moto 360

Owners of the round-face Android Wear smartwatch Moto 360 will feel like they have a new wearable as the Motorola Connect update brings a whole slew of new features and options. For starters, you get new watchfaces including winners from a design competition and pretty deep customization options. A "mystery' accessory called Keylink will also now be supported by the app while a health and wellness app for the wearable has also been included in the latest version of the Connect app.

Moto 360 cometh in gold and metal, updates abound

When smartwatches first came out, they were limited by technology and materials to square-ish or rectangular designs. Users, however, demanded that their smartwatches look more like watches and less like cramped smartphones. They wanted their smartwatches to look premium. And really, what could be more premium than a round-faced smartwatch with metal bands, or better yet, one that has metal bands in champagne gold color. Fortunately for smartwatch fans, that is exactly what Motorola is delivering with this latest batch of the Moto 360.

DROID Turbo review: The do-it-all Android phone

Just like 2013, late 2014 brought us a Moto X from Motorola, but also a new DROID lineup. The Verizon-only handset is — like the Moto X refresh — a linear upgrade, void of much to “new” really look at. Still, and again as we saw with the other phone we keep mentioning here, the DROID Turbo isn’t just iterative. As the pound-for-pound champion in the DROID lineup, the Turbo is meant as the flagship Verizon handset. Is it worth of that title, though? We find out.

The Moto Maxx is real but only for Latin America for now

Dreams still do come true, it seems. At least some parts of it. Motorola has just announced the existence of the Moto Maxx and it is everything we have heard and hoped it be, meaning the delectable DROID Turbo but without the Verizon exclusivity. But also confirming earlier rumors, this one's headed primarily for Brazil, Mexico and the rest of Latin America, but we'll be keeping our fingers crossed that it won't stop there.

Google to replenish Nexus 6 stocks every Wednesday

The Nexus 9 and the Nexus Player have both formally launched but the Nexus 6 is still curiously unavailable. It seems that Google indeed has inventory issues based on their latest update about the smartphone. The Android maker promises to move quickly to fill inventories to meet the presumably high demand for the device and has tipped users to check every Wednesday for that update. Those who want carrier subsidies however, will have to wait later in November to get theirs.

Moto 360 smartwatch leaks sporting gold and brown bands

It's not uncommon for the folks that control when products go online on the Amazon website to hit the go button a bit early. The result is a glimpse at a product that is coming soon before the product is supposed to be unveiled. This happened today when a pair of Moto 360 smartwatches turned up on Amazon sporting new band colors and were pulled shortly thereafter.

This is the Verizon DROID Turbo, coming 30 October

Verizon and Motorola have finally unveiled the DROID Turbo and it is everything that we have expected it to be, which is both good and bad. Good, because it matches up to the high expectations set up by leaks and rumors. Bad, because there are no pleasant surprises hiding in corners. Needless to say, the DROID Turbo has shaped up to be quite the Android smartphone, to the point that Verizon customers might be tempted to opt for this instead of Motorola's own flagship, the Moto X.

DROID Turbo gets leaked again, this time in retail packaging

There are heavy indications that the DROID Turbo – Motorola’s new DROID phone for Verizon – will be one heck of a smartphone, if the leaked and rumored specs are anything to go by. And with Motorola on a roll this half of 2014 – first with the new Moto X, then coming out with Google’s Nexus 6 – it looks like the outfit is going to make it to three flagship level phones this year.

Nexus 6 drops at the FCC, should be shipping soon

The Nexus 6 – Google’s new flagship phone for Android that was built by Motorola – has finally made an appearance at the FCC, pointing to shipping dates most likely just around the corner. The appearance seems right on time for the year’s biggest gadget sale rush at the end of October, and the device should most likely be available for consumers to purchase pretty soon.
