New Motorola Moto X camera information

Moto_X_2014_Event_01_TA

With the release of the new Motorola Moto X 2014, Motorola seems to be trying to narrow the gap a bit between the specs for their flagship device and those from other companies. Motorola has insisted in the past that consumers should look beyond the specs to actual features and functionality, especially things like Moto Display that change the way the device is used. In some areas though, hardware is hardware and skimping on it can create problems. Motorola may have learned that lesson with the camera in last year’s Moto X and has tried to step up with something a little better for the latest version of the Moto X.

Motorola Turbo Charger goes live on Motorola’s website with $35 price tag

moto turbo charger

One of the accessories mentioned with the new Moto X was Motorola’s Turbo Charger. This charger provides an extremely quick battery boost to the Moto X using Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 tech which can give a device up to 8 hours of additional battery life after just 15 minutes on the charger.

Apparently, this Turbo Charger won’t come in the box with the Moto X, but Motorola has updated their accessory page on their website to detail pricing for the accessory. We don’t know when you’ll be able to buy one, but whenever they become available, it’ll run about $35. Fairly expensive for a cell phone charger, but charging up half of your device in just 15 minutes might be worth it. We’ll let know as soon as we hear any more details.

The answer to ‘what is L?’ in Android L could come tomorrow

Googleplex_Working_Near_Statues

Google changed things up this year by giving us a preview of the next big version of Android. However, they didn’t name the damn thing. It’s simply Android L. Will that be the name or will tradition remain in place with the “L” being a tasty dessert such as Lollipop or Licorice? All signs seem to point towards Lemon Meringue Pie, but we won’t know for sure until a statue is put out in front of the Googleplex.

Moto_Hint_2014_Event_01_TA

Bluetooth headsets work well in general, but they are still clunky. Well here comes Moto Hint to solve that problem. It’s so small and discreet, you almost don’t know it’s there. It fits in your ear comfortably with no bulk.

What’s even cooler is that it will work in conjunction with Moto Voice on the Moto X. So you can easily respond to texts or even find out who won that big game without whipping out your phone. Of course, you can still use it with any other smartphone sans those capabilities.

Moto 360 Dynamic Gray

The Moto 360 might be one of the most anticipated devices of this year, and it’s not a smartphone. This round smartwatch has captured a lot of attention and I know many of you have been eagerly wanting to know more about it and when it can be purchased.

Well I finally had a chance to play with it at Motorola’s headquarters yesterday, and trust me, it was worth the wait. Motorola doesn’t like to refer to it as a smartwatch because they feel it’s a re-invention of the wrist watch.

Motorola announces the all new Moto G, available today for the same great price

Moto G Front

The Moto G was the best selling smartphone of all time for Motorola, so how to do you improve on something so great? In talking with customers, they wanted a bigger display, better camera, better sound, removable storage, and features like Moto Assist. It looks like Motorola delivered on all five.

The new Moto G sports a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, as opposed to 4.5-inches last year. The camera on the original Moto G was pretty average if that, but the new Moto G features an 8 MP rear facer and a 2 MP front facer. As to sound, they have incorporated stereo speakers at the front of the device, which is something that you won’t find on most other budget phones. With only 8 GB of internal storage, a microSD slot was seriously lacking on the original, but they are including it on the standard model this year.
