Motorola’s astonishing low-end success is a grim warning for HTC and Samsung

It’s been a dim couple of years for Motorola, a company that has had badly misfiring high-end smartphone strategy. Just two months ago, the company decided to shut down its vaunted U.S. manufacturing plant in Texas. Google grew tired of the issues last January, offloading Motorola to Chinese electronics giant Lenovo, and many questioned what Lenovo could possibly gain by buying the old warhorse.

We now have an answer. More →

Motorola explains why it made the Moto 360 so sexy

Motorola is lagging behind rivals when it comes to launching an Android Wear smartwatch.

To remind potential customers the Moto 360 is coming later this summer, the company has put out a new teaser video on YouTube, explaining why it chose to make a smartwatch. More →

Terrific video gives a closeup look at the most beautiful smartwatch we’ve seen

Most smartwatches that we’ve seen haven’t exactly blown us away so far, but the hardware design team at Motorola really deserves a lot of credit for the Moto 360, an Android Wear-based smartwatch that looks absolutely terrific. Motorola has now posted a new video that gives us a nice up-close look at the Moto 360 and walks us through some of its basic functions, including how to turn the device on, how to bring up and respond to notification cards and how to use voice commands to ask Google questions. We still don’t know exactly when the Moto 360 is coming out and Motorola is only saying that it will release “later this summer.” However, it’s definitely the most anticipated smartwatch release outside of Apple’s still-to-be-revealed iWatch that we expect to see this fall. The full video follows below. More →
