The Moto G is a top level midrange device at an entry level price & it’s headed to Koodo in the coming weeks

image

Motorola just announced a very exciting device which is as solid a midrange device as it get’s, made more impressive by the low outright price tag attached to it. This device we’re so excited about is the Moto G & that mind blowing low price is just $179 for the 8gb & $199 for the 16gb if purchased directly from Motorola in the US.
You might be saying to yourself “we’ve seen phones for that price already, so what’s so impressive about this phone?”
Well it’s the specs & features you get packed into the Moto G that make that price so damn impressive.

You see the Moto G packs :

– A Beautiful 4.5″ 720p HD LCD display 329ppi (in comparison the Moto X is only 316ppi)
– A Fast 1.2ghz Quad Core Snapdragon 400 processor
– 1gb of Ram
– A 5mp rear camera capable of shooting 720p video
– A 1.3mp front facing camera which is great for video calls
– A 2070mAh Battery
– It’s Running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean & confirmed to be updated to Android 4.4 Kit Kat in January
– It Comes in 8gb & 16gb storage options
– Has the same ergonomic design as the Moto X but slightly thicker which is great because as you seen in our review of the Moto X we think it’s the most comfortable device in the hand of any device ever made.

Compare these specs to other phones in the $200 outright price range & you’ll see what makes this device so attractive.

While we do know that the Moto G is for sure coming to Koodo in the coming weeks we’re not sure about colour or storage options that will be offered or pricing. We have heard rumours of only the black model being offered & only in an 8gb storage option which we’re hoping to be false. We’d really like to see the 16gb model being offered which in our opinion is the lowest storage option that should be offered when there is no external storage option (SD Card) available on a mobile device.
We have heard a rumour that Koodo will sell the 8gb Moto G  for $200 outright but we’ll let you know the full details once they’re available from Koodo, until then check out the full launch event of the Moto X from Motorola below.

The Nexus 5 has arrived in Canada!

image

The Nexus 5 has arrived in Canada, actually 30,000 Nexus 5’s have arrived in Canada are sitting snugly in LG’s Canadian warehouses set to be shipped to their next destination. Their next destination is to carriers (Bell, Telus, Koodo, Virgin, Rogers, Wind, Fido) across the great white north.

The LG employee who took this shot for us all to see says that 4,000 of the 30,000 are for western Canada while the remaining 26,000 will cover the Eastern end of Canada’s carriers. So if your on the Western side of Canada get your cash in hand & ready for the official launch because with only 4000 of this initial shipment coming to your area you may have a hard time tracking one down, especially if yoir looking specifically for the black or white model.

Its still unknown the exact launch date of the Nexus 5 but a possible hint from the pic below (from gatgety.co.il) seems to point towards the 5th of November, this could be the date it actually will be  available for purchase however only time will tell. This could also be the release of the N5 & Android 4.4 KK in Israel & we could see it sooner, let’s hope anyways.

image

Google does have a G+ livesteam later today which could be the date we’re all waiting for as well. So wow Google has really been playing with our emotions with this launch havent they. Im sure we’re not the only ones who will be happy when this is all over & we have the long awaited Nexus 5 in our hands & we can sleep soundly after getting our New Nexus & Android 4.4 KK fix.

Another couple New Shots of the Nexus 5 Leak ahead of its release

image
image

Not much to say about this expected press render from the well known leakster’s @evleaks other than its the clearest shot of what looks to be the final product that is the Nexus 5 from Google & LG.
We can see that the black model will have a nice soft touch rubber coating like the Nexus 7 with the Nexus logo carved out to reveal the plastic underneath and an embossed LG logo. The white model seems to have a matte white plastic back with printed Nexus & LG logo’s & will have shiny plastic sides unlike the black models soft touch material.

The month is quickly coming to an end & as the Nexus 5 is rumoured to be going on sale in Canada on Nov 8th we “should” be seeing an official announcement for the N5 any day now.

We pretty much know everything about the device including most of the specs & the multiple storage options, 16gb & 32gb as well as the starting price ($349 for the 16gb) which was leaked on Google’s own Playstore last week & finally that it will pack the newest version of Android 4.4 Kit Kat.
So now all we need to know is when will this officially be announced and if we can indeed get our hands on one as of Nov 8th here in the cold North & those are some extremely frustrating answers to wait upon but all will be better in just a few short days.

Anybody else getting impatient with this launch or is it just us? Hit the comments & let us know whats on your mind when it comes to the Nexus 5 below.
What model are you liking more & hoping to get your hands on at launch?

Nexus 5 most recent leaks & rumours (pictures)(different sized batteries perhaps?)

image

Above we see a diagram from the supposed leaked owners manual for the Nexus 5. That same leaked manual gave up a list of specs that lead towards this being a very solid Nexus device & are as follows.

– 4.95-inch 1080p IPS TFT display
– 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip
– 2GB of RAM
– 8mp rear camera & 1.3mp front facing camera
– 2,300 mAh battery
– 16GB or 32GB of storage.
– Android 4.4 Kit Kat (internally known as KLP)

The most recent rumour is suggesting that the Nexus 5 will actually come in 2 different models. The rumour suggests the 2 models will have different storage (which we see above) but each storage size will come with different sized batteries.
The 16gb model will sport the 2,300mAh battery that we’ve all heard, but the big surprise is a rumour suggesting the 32gb model will feature a whopping 3,000mAh battery.

Rumored pricing for each model is rumored to be $299 for the 16gb model & $399 for the 32gb model. These are all just rumours at the moment but as many were only disappointed by the battery size in earlier leaks this is a very exciting rumour that means the Nexus 5 could be the Nexus device all the Nexus faithful have been dreaming about. We’ll bring you more as the leaks & rumours come in, all the way up to the launch.

Well what do you think of this most recent rumour of battery size & the other specs?
Let us know in the comments below we love hearing for all of our fellow Androidian’s.

Some more leaked photos of the Nexus 5 below.

Could this be the Nexus 5 or a prototype of another Nexus?

image

This picture is now everywhere and it’s from the video Google released earlier today showing them putting up the kit kat Android guy which is supposedly the next version of Android 4.4. In the screenshot we see a guy holding what looks like a mix of the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 7 2013 and is definitely not a device we’ve seen before, Could this be the Nexus 5 or a prototype for it?
Did Google do this on purpose? Well we’re not sure they did as they have now taken down the video from YouTube which has us all questioning it’s being done purposely. If it is I’m so happy that it looks to be a 5″ display would be packed in there with the comparison of the Nexus 4. I just hope it’s 1080p full HD which would be amazing on a Nexus phone because it sure makes the Nexus 7 one incredible tablet.

What do you guys think, is it the Nexus 5?

Android 4.4 Kit Kat a reality or just a Google hoax?

image

Seems today a new statue was placed on the front lawn of Google headquarters of our beloved Andy the Android guy looking very chocolaty and delicious. Google may be naming the next version of Android “kit kat” after the chocolate bar that many of us enjoy when we need a break. Is this real or just Google having some fun with us? I guess only time will tell when we see it hit our Nexus devices. Until then check out these videos and make your own  judgment, but I say break me off a piece of that because I love the idea.

Motorola Droid Maxx supposedly pictured here, with possibly a very interesting speaker placement

image

This is a supposed leak of the new Droid Maxx from Motorola that is said to be available from Verizon on August 8th & will be announced on July 23rd. We’ll have to wait & see if these rumours hold any baring as well as the expected specs, which include like most phones that seem to be coming out soon a snapdragon 800 processor & 2gb’s of RAM. What most phones don’t have is that cool kevlar back which Motorola has become well known for using on their devices.

Something interesting that nobody else seems to have noticed is that the big square around the camera seems to be a very large speaker grill, or at least that’s what it sure looks like to me. It’s great to see more companies could be focusing on packing better sound out of their new devices which is one of few areas that still need improving for most manufacturers.
So what you you think of the design & do you agree with me that is indeed the speaker that is surrounding the camera? Do you hope we see this device in Canada from Rogers?

This supposed Motorola Leak is obviously a fake, so why bother everyone?

image

This picture is circling the Web and claims to be a leak of the Motorola Razor Ultra or some sites said the Moto X (which hello we’ve already seen the back plates of). I have no idea why sites are even posting this questioning it at all because it’s obviously fake as hell.
First the device is on an angle but the writing on the back is perfectly straight across as well as it doesn’t taper thinner as it moves away from the camera.
Then if you look around the writing it’s extremely obvious the terrible photoshop job as you can see the distortion around the words and even the Ferrari logo, as well as why the hell would there be a Ferrari logo on the razor or Moto X that’s only on the Motorola Ferrari model which has nothing to do with either device & is a separate device all together.
I’m just surprised every other Android enthusiasts site is even bothering questioning thus when it’s so obvious?
You can’t deny it but what do you think anyways?

Samsung sold 20 million S4’s in Only 2 months, has me thinking stock price fixing

image

We all heard recently that the Galaxy S4 wasn’t selling well, & while I didn’t believe it what so ever others sure did as the stock fell quite a bit. Now we’re getting the #s from Samsung & it looks like it has become the fastest selling smartphone ever selling over 20 million units in only 2 months.
Why does this have me thinking stocks are being fixed? Well this is exactly what happened with the BlackBerry stock & the Z10 when it was first released. The Z10 was released & analyst said that it wasn’t selling well even though it was hard to even get your hands on at first & stock prices took a dive (this had me thinking how they were so off if that’s these analyst’s job) Then shortly after the actual #s came out & low and behold they were much better than the #s that Analyst had projected & stocks rose.
Now we have the Galaxy S4 & analyst made claims once again that the Galaxy S4 wasn’t selling well & stock prices dropped. Now we are hearing the true #’s & again they are not what the analysts predicted at all, in fact the Galaxy S4 is the fastest selling smartphone EVER.

So it seems to me that these analysts have found themselves a way to make some big cash fast by fixing the stock prices by talking down these companies new devices even though they know they are selling very well (I mean how can’t they if I know just from frequenting the net on mobile tech forums & blogs & checking out the comment sections). Then the price of said stock drops they buy the stock knowing all the time the device is selling like mad & a week or 2 later the official #’s come out & they are much higher than they claimed thus making the stock prices climb again & making these analyst’s a rather hefty amount when they sell the stock after the rise in price.

See there is nothing in the world that is as easy to do this with as smartphones because of the # of ppl who purchase these brand new devices as soon as they are released & I believe these analysts have found just that and are raking in the cash doing so. I’d like to see how these analysts live & I guarantee none of them are struggling & are doing quite well.
What do you guys think am I on to something or do I just question things way too much in this world lol. Let us know in the comment section below.

Samsung Galaxy S4 has already sold over 6 million units & Pure Android Galaxy S4 Perhaps

image

Samsung had predicted they would sell 100 million units of the Galaxy S4 which seemed like it might be a little presumptuous if anything. Well maybe not as the newest flagship device has already passed the 6 million units sold mark in the very short time it’s been available according to a Samsung insider.

Still you might be thinking to yourself “ya but 100 million, I don’t know if that many ppl want a device with Samsung’s Touchwiz UI”, & you just might be right. Well here’s another twist to the story, a Samsung Galaxy S4 with a vanilla Android experience.
That’s right a Nexus style experience on the Galaxy S4 hardware. According to rumours going around at Google I/O Google & Samsung will announce just that at the event that begins today at 12pm sharp. If you can’t be at the event but you’d like to watch the live stream of the event you can do so here https://developers.google.com/events/io/ & find out for yourself if this rumour is true.
This would be great to have that kick ass hardware with a Nexus style/vanilla Android experience, it sure would leave the user with a much more acceptable amount of internal storage space albeit without all Samsung’s cool features.

Remember we heard talk before the Nexus 4 came out that possibly 5 companies would make Nexus devices? Well maybe it still could be true & we could very well see more than 1 vanilla Android phone this year.

What do you guys think, would you love to see a Galaxy S4 with vanilla Android & perhaps a few more phones with pure Android?
Let us know in the comments section below, we’d love to hear from you guys.
