    Updated with links to the high-quality, edited version of the podcast. We hope you enjoyed; see you next week! We stayed up all night waiting for an iPhone that (almost) never came. A few days before that, we opined mightily about the smartwatch that's slated to accompany it come early next year – and a day or two before that, we took a quick look at the latest iPhone and Apple Watch competition from the Motorola camp, with the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. It's smartwatch and smartphone soup over here at Pocketnow and, generous guys that we are, we want to share the experience with ...

    For the bloggers that cover them, one of the greatest things about trade shows is the opportunity to connect with counterparts from other publications ... and to podcast with them. Sometimes the best salve for a salvo of comparison videos shot back-to-back over 13 hours is a few minutes in front of the mic with friends, picking up the pieces while picking out the messages, trends, and lessons from the show. Helping us do that on today's Pocketnow Weekly podcast are two luminaries of the mobile tech world, both of whom have been on our guest "wish list" for over a year. Fresh from ...

    It’s no secret what many were looking forward to when it comes to Motorola’s announcements. Sure, there were tours of the “behind the scenes” stuff at Motorola in downtown Chicago, and yes there were a couple of unexpected accessories that came out of the announcements. But we want to talk about some phones and watches, eh? So let’s get to it. The Moto X One of last year’s absolute hit phones was the Moto X. Appropriately, this year’s hit model will also be the “Moto X”. The Moto X 2nd generation will not sport the “plus one” moniker that has been floating around the ...

    It's happening. One of the best phones of 2013 is getting a refresh, and the whole tech world seems quite excited about it. With last year's Moto X, Motorola brought thinking that was way different than many of the other OEMs out there – it proved that phones didn't have to have top-tier specs and a boatload of software features in order to shine. It proved that a great phone doesn't have to look great on paper, so we're naturally looking forward to the successor to that product. The new Moto X (or perhaps the Moto X+1, as it may be called) is only a few days away, so we decided to ...

    To say that situation surrounding Motorola's follow-up to the Moto X has become a confusing one might be an understatement. Despite the arrival of videos very clearly depicting an unreleased Motorola Android, we've also seen what appears to be much more of a lower-end model attach itself to rumors of this Moto X+1, making it a bit tricky to work out just which phone's which. Could this higher-end phone be something new altogether, or is Motorola really bumping-up the specs for the Moto X's second coming? There's one new piece to the puzzle for us to look at tonight, as an incomplete ...

    iOS 8 is here –in Beta form, at least– and (surprise, surprise) we've got some opinions. For the last Weekly podcast to begin with a "0," we bring in the big guns to discuss Apple's new platform: a four-man team that includes our resident iOS experts, one of whom joins in from the blazing heat of a car baking in the North Carolina sun just to tell us his take on the iPhone 6 and how it will/won't/might end up being a phablet. Of course we don't stop with Apple: a panoply of mobile devices, from the LG G3 to the Galaxy S5 Active to the Motorola X+1, awaits our speculation, adulation, ...

    Earlier this afternoon, we checked in with some of the most recent Windows Phone rumors as we looked at a report mentioning development codenames for a number of Nokia handsets, extending all the way into late 2015. Now we're crossing the tracks over to the Android side of town, as we learn about some Motorola codenames popping up in the company's own software. Motorola's Bug2Go app contains a laundry list of devices, identified by codenames. Like the Vanquish you see in these screenshots below? That's the phone that ended up launching as the RAZR HD. But some of these codenames don't line ...

    There were a lot of reasons to be excited about the Moto X when Motorola introduced the phone last summer, and one of its more unusual claims to fame was that the handset would be assembled right here in the US. By contrast, we're used to smartphones being fully manufactured before they're imported into the country. We had our concerns that employing a US workforce might drive the phone's cost up, but not only did the Moto X end up being one of the most affordable, best values around, but the plant's US location allowed customized phones to arrive on users' doorsteps just days after their ...

    Manufacturers like LG are pushing limits with what size screens they can get away with in phones positioned as traditional handsets, versus the more niche phablet crowd, bringing 5.5-inch displays to models like the brand new G3. Even Samsung finally pushed past the five-inch barrier with the GS5. But in contrast to these OEMs we have Motorola, which seems to be doing just fine for itself with much smaller phones. The Moto G, Moto X, and Moto E all feature displays measuring in south of five inches – really, it's been since the Droid Ultra/Maxx that we've seen Motorola even touch that ...

    You know those weeks where you're like, "hey - what if we didn't have a weekly podcast eating up half a day in production time?

    Something has been bothering me in the smartphone world lately. It’s something that started off slowly and enjoyed a little ribbing. Then it got silly. Now it’s just plain old dumb. There are too many “One” smartphones today. Already we see the HTC One, the OnePlus One, and the rumored Moto X plus One. So let’s run through those ones again shall we? Moto X Plus One, One, and OnePlus One. Did I miss anyone? Or should I say, “Did I miss any One?” Confused yet? You should be. I think those three companies should get together and run a promotion – “Say all of these names 5 ...

    Just a little under a month ago a leak attempted to out Motorola's branding for its presumed Moto X successor, the X+1. We had that name, and we also had the rumor that this model would support new custom backplate options, including some leather selections. More recently, some specs have surfaced that may just detail what kind of hardware this phone could launch with, and we've even learned of an upcoming Motorola launch event. Based on earlier comments from the manufacturer, we're guessing it's still too early for the X+1 to make its debut, but that doesn't mean we're not still very ...

    With evidence pointing to a new Motorola Android on the horizon, we've been actively speculating about what might be next for the company. Reports of several different models have been floating around, from a seemingly high-end model with a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, to an LTE version of the Moto G, or even a very thin handset. We're still not sure exactly what we're getting next, but today we learn when to expect answers, as Motorola schedules a launch event for Tuesday, May 13. We're still waiting to get the full launch picture on Motrola's Moto 360 smartwatch, but this invitation is clear ...
