image

It’s Time to Meet Moto 360 as Motorola answers some questions about the New Smart Watch they have been working on and will bring to the world in the near future. Check out the video from Motorola here : http://youtu.be/HpY8O5Zer78

But first Check some visuals of the Moto 360 in Motorola’s other video Moto 360: It’s Time: http://youtu.be/dnerqDWwVgg

We’re very excited about Google’s new Wear OS and it’s heavy design elements from Google Now and it’s card based UI. The Moto G will be one of the first devices to use this new OS and we can’t wait to get one on our wrists, it’s the first Smart Watch we are truly interested in. What are your thoughts on the Moto 360 and Google’s new Wear OS, is it something you could see yourself Rocking on your wrist?

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.

Nexus 5 leaks once more before it’s officially announced

image

The glorious Nexus 5 Google ‘s most recent pure Android device seems to have leaked one more time in this video showing off its build which seems to be an earlier prototype since the Nexus logo we’ve seen in later builds isn’t present. The single hole through the glass where the earpiece is also looks very unfinished as does the grill in the front glass on the bottom left which all bring credence to this definitely not being a final build. It does give us an idea of what the phones design & materials used will look like & I personally am very happy that it looks like it will have the same soft touch material as the Nexus 7 2013 since it feels great in the hand & adds a great deal of grip compared to the glass or plastics & especially metals, plus it will match our Nexus 7 2013’s beautifully 😉

Check out the video below from the leakster, we’d all like to thank them but sure wish they would have show a little more of Android 4.4 & not chrome so much

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.

Is Samsung’s Galaxy S4 enough to compete with the HTC ONE?

image

Samsung launched the long awaited Galaxy S4 last night in New York City by showing the device in real world situations via some terrible acting in its hour long play…. I mean presentation.
They showed off the mass of new features included in the Galaxy S4 including Air view, Smart Pause, Smart Scroll & much much more. Check out Samsung’s video at the bottom of the page for more.
The Galaxy S4 stays with the same sleek & stylish design as the Galaxy S3 & Galaxy Note 2, with it polycarbonate build. This time they have dropped the hyper-glaze finish & went with a nice textured look that looks a little like Alligator skin. They have also made the edges a little less curved but it still feels great in the hand.

The Galaxy S 4 features a 5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. As for what’s powering the Galaxy S4 there will be two versions of processors, The unlocked international version will pack a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 5 processor and the North American or Carrier version will get an equally fast 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor. The CPU with be accompanied by PowerVR SGX544MP and Adreno 320 GPU respectively. Both versions have 2gb of RAM as well.
The Galaxy S4 will be available from the big 3 & from Koodo at the end of April. It’s expected to be selling for around $700 so start saving your penny’s because April’s just around the corner.

Well what do you think, is it enough to compete with the HTC ONE? Will you be getting one?

Copying the Market leaders seems to be a trend right now

image

The HTC ONE was launched the other day & many were making alot of comparisons of the phone & the actual presentation to Apple & the iPhone.
Now it’s LG’s turn as they seem to be copying the other leader in the mobile market Samsung. In a video showing the features of LG’s new Optimus G Pro you can see that they have a feature called Q Slide in which you can write on the screen in a S-Pen type way or where you can run split screens or floating video, both exactly like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.(check the video below)

They also seem to be copying Samsung when it comes to advertising as seen in this video which is an obvious poke at Apple which Samsung is no stranger at doing. Basically it’s showing that their phone can also take panoramic shots like the iPhone but it can take it a step further with photo sphere. You might feel like you’ve seen the video as it is identical to the iPhone one with the many children in a lineup. (Check out the video below)

Do you think these are good strategies or just plain ripping off the others & you’d like to see some originality from these other device makers?

Video of the new HTC ONE looking sleek & damn sexy

image

Here’s the best video I’ve found so far of the new HTC ONE since there was no live coverage of the event & I wasn’t at the event personally.
It’s a video from the Mobile Geeks with a quick over view of the HTC ONE & I must say it looks absolutely incredible. If I didn’t already have the Galaxy Note 2 & have fallen completely in love with the S-Pen & other features it has I would be taking a serious look at getting the ONE. It’s one single piece of aluminum that each device takes 150hrs to produce. It is very sleek & as sexy as they come. Also there’s finally a phone with dual front speakers ahhhhh I think I just messed my pants lol.
image

Well I won’t talk anymore & let you enjoy this video from the guys at Mobile Geeks, take it away guys.

Well do you like it as much as me or do you think it’s another fail from HTC?
Let us know in the comments below. Thanks
