Verizon now offers the Motorola Droid Maxx in two new colors

The Motorola Droid Maxx may not be the newest smartphone around, nor the highest-end, but nevertheless Verizon has decided to refresh it somewhat. You can now buy the Droid Maxx in two new colors. One of them is called High Gloss Red, and the other is Black with Chrome Accents. Once you’ve seen them, you’ll undoubtedly understand why those names were chosen. Under the hood, the specs are the same the black Droid Maxx...

Moto G Forte launches in Mexico, isn’t a rugged version of the smartphone after all

Only a few days after it got leaked, the Moto G Forte has been made official in Mexico today. Late last month when we first heard about it, we were wondering whether it was really going to be a ruggedized version of the Moto G, or perhaps just a bundle deal whereas you’d get a free case with a new (and ‘vanilla’) Moto G. Want to guess which one it actually is? No, Motorola hasn’t announced a new smartphone. So...

Moto G Forte leaks on its way to Latin America, but what is it exactly?

Something called the Moto G Forte is apparently on its way to (at least) Latin America in the near future. The information comes from a usually reliable source of leaks, but the image you can see below does raise some questions, chief among them being – what exactly is the Moto G Forte? That is, if it’s actually real. There’s always a chance something like this is made up by someone with too much spare time on their...

Moto X follow-up coming in late summer, smartwatch later. Moto G is its best selling smartphone ever

The Moto X has been highly praised for being able to marry hardware and software in an interesting way, but the handset is getting more and more long in the tooth with every day that goes by. So naturally, you may wonder when or if to expect a successor for the Moto X? According to Motorola itself, the follow-up should be on the market in late summer. This might, however, be a launch once again limited to just the US – keep that...

Moto G makes it to US Cellular, priced at $99.99 without contract

The Moto G by Motorola has now arrived at yet another carrier. It’s already been offered by quite a few, especially the smaller ones, and starting today you can order one from US Cellular. The good thing is that this company has decided to match Verizon’s incredibly low price for the Moto G – $99.99.

Verizon Moto G Android 4.4 KitKat update now rolling out

Verizon’s version of the Moto X getting Android 4.4 KitKat first was an exception. The carrier sometimes nicknamed Big Red is usually the last to roll out software updates for its smartphones, and that has once again happened in the case of the Moto G. Motorola’s budget offering is incredibly cheap at Verizon, going for just $99.99 sans contract, but it launched running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Now though, the update to...
