Moto X+1 photos leak alongside dramatically improved specs

According to a new leak that included several photos of the unreleased phone as well as key specs, the X+1 will be a dramatic improvement over the original Moto X, which was a mid-range smartphone with specs that were no match for market leaders at the time.

That old Nokia phone in your attic might be worth $1,400

There is now organized resistance against the modern smartphone. And it appears to be quite lucrative.

A website called Vintage Mobile offers a wide array of defiantly dumb phones from the era when Nokia, Motorola and Ericsson ruled the global handset market and there was a wide range of different designs and form factors.

Refurbished models on Vintage Mobile sell typically for between $100 and 200, but there are some gems that command four figures. Among European connoisseurs of the art of mobile handset, the Nokia 8800 Arte Carbon has achieved legendary status — and the price of a refurbished model in 2014 is nearly $1,400. More →

Motorola is shutting down its U.S. smartphone factory

Motorola can’t afford to build its smartphones in the United States any longer. The Wall Street Journal reports that Motorola will be shuttering its factory in Fort Worth, Texas by the end of 2014. The factory opened last year, despite the odds being stacked heavily against its success. Now, just four months after Google announced it would be selling Motorola to Lenovo for $2.9 billion, that factory is closing — a decision independent from the sale, according to Motorola President Rick Osterloh. According to the report, over 700 workers are currently employed at that factory. More →
