“Where’s my Moto X+1 at? Is this September 4, or is it not? Wasn’t Motorola supposed to be elbowing-in on IFA’s spotlight today with some new hardware?” Yes, yes, you’re not far off there. Last month, the company started inviting the press to a September 4 event in Chicago, with some subtlety-be-damned hints that we’d be seeing the launch of the rumored Moto X+1 and the second-gen Moto G, possibly learning the start-of-sales details for the Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch, and maybe even getting news about a new earpiece accessory of some kind. But with the day now upon us, the truth has become clear: we’re not getting any public announcements today. The good news is that they’re not far off, with Motorola teasing an overnight start to the hardware launches.
Motorola has taken to Twitter to reveal its plans: beginning tonight at 1am Central (2am Eastern, or 6am GMT), this new hardware starts going official.
Now, being the smartphone-obssessive types we are, of course we’ll be up at that hour to bring you the news as it breaks, but those of you who like to balance your desire for cutting-edge smartphone news with that for getting a good night’s sleep can rest easy knowing that full reports on all of Motorola’s new gear will be waiting for you here at Pocketnow when you’re up in the morning.
That said, who’s waiting up tonight with us? We’ll make the s’mores.
