Motorola now wants you to buy temporary digital tattoos to unlock your Moto X

Remember the Motorola Skip? A tiny wearable smartphone accessory that can help you quickly unlock the Moto X and other 2013 Moto Droid handsets? Well, Motorola has devised a similar version of the Skip, but this time around it goes on your skin rather than on a piece of clothing. The company has partnered with VivaLnk, and started selling a temporary Digital Tattoo that can be worn on the user’s skin to quickly unlock the Moto X. More →

Moto X and Moto G Android 5.0 L Update

Android L is coming to the Moto X and Moto G [update]

Android L is coming to the Moto X and Moto G [update]

Google did not spill any important details about Android L during its I/O keynote on Wednesday, so it’s not clear what the name of the new mobile operating system is, or its version number – some say it’s Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s also not known what devices will be able to run it. With KitKat, Google tried to make Android compatible with devices sporting as little as 512MB of RAM, in order to reduce fragmentation, and it will be interesting to see whether the company will manage to do that with Android L as well. From the looks of it though, it appears that certain mid-range handsets will indeed be able to run the OS. More →

One-time Apple fanboy explains why he dumped his iPhone for a Moto X

It’s always entertaining to read what happens when longtime iPhone devotees switch to another platform, regardless of whether they like their new platform of choice or absolutely hate everything about it. CNN’s David Goldman, however, is a somewhat unusual case — he’s a self-described former “big Apple fan” who dropped his iPhone last year in favor of the Moto X, Motorola’s little-bought Android phone that came in with lesser specifications than other Android heavyweights released last year such as the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

Motorola’s Moto X successor to be unveiled in ‘late summer’

When Motorola took the stage at Mobile World Congress this week, the company didn’t have much to offer in the way of new devices. Other than introducing a new smartwatch, the soon-to-be-Lenovo-owned phone maker refrained from any major reveals, but a Twitter Q&A session on Tuesday afternoon hinted at the next smartphone from Motorola. One participant in the Q&A asked Motorola when we’d see the next version of Moto X, to which Motorola responded with a vague answer of “late summer.” It’s not much but it’s still the first we’ve heard of a follow-up to the Motorola hero phone of 2013 in quite some time.

If you missed Motorola’s Cyber Monday sale on the the company’s flagship Moto X, but are still looking to get your hands on the phone at a reasonable price, you’re in luck. Motorola announced on Wednesday that the price of its hero phone without a contract has dropped to $399 to ring in the new year.
