    In case you haven't noticed, it really looks like Motorola is getting wild this year. Apart from the rumors surrounding the new Moto X and G iterations, leaks of new Verizon Droids and the Nexus X have also been fairly bountiful. But news out of left field has hit us today, as Motorola may have teamed up with Verizon to create the Moto Luge, and launch day may be just later this week. According to a source of TK Tech News at Best Buy, this phone will be "specifically marketed to Verizon Prepaid customers," and there's support baked-in for Verizon's newly switched-on prepaid LTE ...

    Rumors have been flying that Motorola has been chosen to make the next Nexus iteration, and most (if not all) called the phone the Nexus 6 – it's the sixth Nexus phone to be made, and it's also rumored to have a 5.9-inch screen size. Today we're seeing a report that looks to partially shoot down these earlier rumors, as the Motorola Nexus X name leaks for the first time. According to unacknowledged sources of PhoneArena, the phone will be named Motorola Nexus X (as we said earlier), and it will allegedly have the Motorola model number XT1100. This leads us to think the earlier report ...

    When smartphone shopping, so many people run straight for the spec sheet. Or at least they start there and then move on to stuff like build quality, materials, reviews, etc. But it really is about the specs for most people. I’m not going to lie, I’m like that too, for the most part - latest and greatest for me. This is not a crazy concept. Future proofing is a big concern in the world of smartphones. You’re putting down anywhere from $300 - $800 or you’re signing away 2 years of your life for a device in a field that has a tendency to pump out new technology faster than you can say ...

    One of the longest-standing rumors about the Moto X+1, popping up right around the same time we saw evidence for the phone's name, has concerned the sort of customization options that would be available through Moto Maker. Supposedly we'd see the return of wooden backplates, which sounded nice, but word was we'd also be able to choose from a few leather options. That leather idea returned in subsequent rumors, but we've yet to see any firm confirmation. We're still not quite there yet, but today brings us at least some new circumstantial evidence, as a retialer appears to confirm the ...

    One of the most hotly anticipated phones of the year will be announced on September 4, and because that date is so close, it's only natural that we see more and more leaks as we get closer to launch date. Today we're taking a look at a bombshell of a leak, of what is expected to be the Moto X+1. Learn what these Moto X+1 renders look to confirm. First of all, we can see the front facing speakers on both the black and white fronts. Apart from that, there's not much more about the front: there's a Google Now Launcher-esque launcher, and plenty of things pointing to these renders being of ...

    What does Motorola have coming up next in its device pipeline? We've got the X+1 and G2 expected for the company's early September event, rumors of a new Nexus model, and most recently word of a possible return to tablets. But if we keep focused on just phones, exactly how many are we looking at? A new rumor attempts to nail-down Motorola's plans for the remainder of the year, naming eight smartphones expected to make their debut. We've got the Moto X+1 and G2 (though that name's still up in the air), as well as that Shamu Nexus. Then there's the Moto S, recently rumored to be an early ...

    We've been hearing a surge of Motorola news as of late, and the reason for that may be because of the sheer number of phones and tablets the company is working on. We've heard a report suggesting there could be eight devices out of the company by the end of this year, and now we're hearing information letting us know that multiple new Motorola tablets are also possibly in the pipeline. According to anonymous sources of PhoneArena, Motorola is testing various screen sizes for tablets -- anything from 7 inches to 12.5 inches could materialize if the company decides to go through with it. ...

    We've all heard a ton of rumors pointing to the possible launch of the next Moto X, and there is even a scheduled Motorola event that points to this launch as well. These rumors claim that this Moto X+1 will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2GB RAM, all decent specifications for this year. Now, what if some new rumors point to another Motorola smartphone in the works, and oddly, a more powerful one? Leaked CPU-Z screen shots show us a new Motorola device under the codename "Quark_Verizon," and with a model number XT1254. Motorola regularly keeps model numbers ...

    We're probably little more than two weeks away from Motorola's announcement of its Moto X follow-up, the phone we've been looking forward to as the X+1. And while that will mean new hardware, new features, and likely some new Moto Maker options, for the moment the year-old Moto X remains the star of the manufacturer's lineup. Even with the next big thing so very nearly within reach, Motorola is still hoping to churn-up some last-minute interest in the Moto X, and its latest offer to land hopes to hook buyers up with a free wooden backplate. It took a few months for wood backs to become ...

    In its not-subtle-at-all press event invite from last week, Motorola all but confirmed that a new Moto G is on the way. Sure, based on the rumors and evidence that had been piling up, that sounded pretty likely anyway, but finally this was starting to feel official. But even even if the Moto G2 does take the stage on September 4 to introduce itself to the world, what will it look like? One of the more prominent rumors to attach itself to the Moto G2's story has been that of a larger display, moving up to five inches, and today we get a look at what just might be that screen itself, with a ...

    Late last week brought us a couple interesting developments in the Moto 360's slow march to retail availability. We had that invite to Motorola's September 4 event, with a graphic of a round watch that sure seemed to be a Moto 360 reference to us, and then that news that Google was finally getting ready to send out long overdue Moto 360s to Google I/O attendees – and between the two of them, we started feeling more confident that the 360 could go up for sale in early September, rather than much later in the month. Over the weekend we picked up some new evidence towards this “360 is ...

    Updated with links to the high-quality version of the podcast below! Thanks for joining us for the live show, everyone, and enjoy the HQ downloads in the Links section. One of the nice things about a mobilized mob of fanatics is ... well, nothing. For the purposes of intelligent discourse and civility, there's nothing cool or helpful about a bunch of heated fanboys rabidly denigrating a new product because it happens to threaten their preferred smartphone. We've talked about this sort of thing before, and now we're talking about it again – this time in the context of Blackphone vs ...

    If you were harboring any doubt that Motorola was about to deliver a new Moto X, the September 4 event invite we saw go out earlier this week, with its clear image of an “X” handset, should have succeeded in convincing you. But even if this hardware really is about to go public in just under three weeks, how will it arrive? We've been looking at a smattering of leaks over the summer so far that have attempted to reveal the phone's design to us, but inconsistencies and just a general lack of faith that what we were seeing really was the X+1 have left us without the strongest sense of ...

    Each year, the Nexus rumors tend to get the Android community all worked up. There's more to the Nexus mystery than other device rumors. For instance, there is always speculation about which manufacturer will be the chosen partner on a given year. And, right out of the gate, the Nexus smartphone will inevitably have a different course than its competition. It's reference hardware, often with topnotch specifications; it's typically sold at roughly half the cost of a normal smartphone; it gets first dibs on future firmware updates; and it gets tons of attention from development communities. ...

    With those invitations Motorola just started distributing for a September 4 event, the ones that pretty unambiguously feature an image of a watch among their highlighted products, it's safe to say that we're just about to learn of the start of retail sales for the Moto 360. But even if that announcement comes at the event, when might the smartwatch actually go up for sale? After all, a couple of the other products we're hoping to see announced – the Moto X+1 and G2 – have been rumored to land on September 25, and September 10, respectively. Would the 360 fall closer to the former or ...
