The folks over at Omate TrueSmart seem to be fond of this good news, bad news type of update. After yet another few weeks of delay, the smartwatch is ready to ship to you this weekend. That is, if you chose the US version of the device.
When Google and Motorola announced the new Moto X smartphone and all the custom features many were extremely excited. Being able to customize a smartphone, have it built in the USA (Murica) and delivered to your door all in 4 days was their promise. Last week we confirmed the shipping times might be slightly delayed, due to demand, but will get to that 4-day mark soon.
Today is Motorola day with the custom Moto X Maker website and the official launch of their new smartphone. It's readily available in AT&T stores nationwide, and you can snag one as we speak or head to their site and customize your own. Originally Motorola promised 4 day waits for the custom version, but last night a blog post might be warning of a delay, already.
Back in July the folks from Motorola announced a trio of smartphones. Those being the new DROID ULTRA, MAXX with 48 hours of battery life, and the small yet powerful DROID Mini that replaces the DROID M from last year. The first two launched earlier this week on the 20th, and now we're hearing reports the Mini is already shipping, and can confirm it will be in stores tomorrow.
When Google first announced their new Chromecast media streaming device about a month ago, they apparently didn't expect the device to be in such demand. After selling out almost instantly and being wiped from Best Buy shelves in a matter of hours, the device has been hard to find. However, this afternoon the Play Store stock and availability appears to be stabilizing.
The impressive new Motorola DROID ULTRA and MAXX appear to be shipping already. When Moto announced pre-orders late last month alongside the August 20th release date we knew when it would arrive all along, unlike the HTC One, and now we're hearing they're shipping early. After ship dates slipped due to overwhelming demand, it appears a few of you could get the device as soon as tomorrow.
The Google Chromecast media streaming dongle is in strong demand at the moment. It is currently selling out anywhere and stores can't keep it on the shelves. At least that's what we keep hearing. Yesterday like us, many of you received depressing shipping "estimates" from Amazon stating a late October delivery, which is too long, but today they've backtracked on that statement.
BLU has announced the availability of its Blu Dash 4.5 handset, which is being offered unlocked as a budget handset for $139 USD. Despite the price, the device packs decent specs, including a MediaTek MT6589M 1.2GHz quad-core processor and support for 4G LTE networks. The Blu Dash is being sold online through "several" retailers in the US.
Google was expected to bring some additional shipping options to the Play Store and as of today, it looks like they have come available for new purchases. All together there are three options available for shipping, however not every item will be eligible for every shipping option. Any and all eligible shipping options will be presented during the checkout process.
Today the folks from OUYA took a moment to inform all of their loyal fans, buyers, and backers that production has continued to pick up the pace and starting next week will hit full steam. After getting a few initial shipments and developer units out lately today they've confirmed starting next week they'll be producing, packing, and shipping OUYA consoles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
