Motorola KORE could be vendor's upcoming quad-core tablet

Motorola is rumored to be working on a new tablet with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich a 4:3 aspect ratio like Apple’s iPad. Fusible did a bit of digging on Friday and found that the upcoming slate could be dubbed the “Motorola KORE.” Motorola Trademark Holdings on Wednesday register five new domains: MotorolaKore.com, KoreMotorola.com,  Moto-kore.com, MotoKore.com and Motorola-Kore.com. Fusible speculates that these domains are being held for the launch of Motorola Mobility’s second Android-powered tablet. Earlier rumors suggested the slate would be dubbed the XOOM 2, but following a tepid reception, it is entirely possible that Motorola could dump the brand for the slightly edgier “KORE” moniker. Also of note, Motorola’s next tablet could be one of the first slates to ship with NVIDIA’s quad-core Kal-El processor, so we wouldn’t be surprised if Moto intended to make those four “kores” the main focus of its marketing campaign. Motorola released its XOOM tablet in the U.S. this past March and while sales haven’t been stellar, the slate has fared relatively well compared to other Android tablets on the market with 250,000 units shipped in the first quarter.

Verizon Wireless acquiring and registering Verizon iPhone domains?

Verizon Wireless acquiring and registering Verizon iPhone domains?

It would appear that Verizon Wireless is buying Verizon iPhone-related domains from around the web. PocketNow is reporting that a company called “Verizon Trademark Services, LLC” has purchased iphoneforverizon.com as well as iphoneonverizon.com. The same corporation owns Verizon’s main domain, http://www.verizon.com, which legitimizes the company and makes this report seem factual. Who did Verizon Wireless allegedly buy the domains from? A gentleman named Jim Benton who has used the aforementioned domains as paid link farms. The sites still don’t forward to any official Verizon Wireless webpages, most likely to not draw any attention to the fact that the company has presumably been scooping up iPhone domains. More →
