Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel and the Pixel XL, were released preinstalled with the tech giant’s own Android 7.1 Nougat, a pretty standard update but still one that came with new features.
Part of what makes Motorola’s Moto Z line of smartphones so cool are the Mods, and recently, the phone maker has decided to unveil a couple of new additions to the magnetic modules. Meet the new 3,000 mAh Mophie JuicePack, which comes with a USB Type C port for independent charging, priced at $80, and a car dock (made in collaboration with Incipio) that allows users to charge their Moto Z handsets and at the same time open mobile apps (sort of like Google’s Android Auto).
By way of a recent blog post, Motorola has revealed that two of its newest smartphone offerings -- the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force -- will have the honor of being the first devices not made by Google to have support for Daydream, the search giant’s virtual reality (VR) platform.
This year, it appears that mobile virtual network operator Republic Wireless is not too keen on Black Friday. Instead, the carrier will be unleashing Taco Tuesday, which will see the MVNO offer a range of special deals November 29th (the Tuesday right after Black Friday, hence the name). It might turn out to be a wise decision, especially for somebody like Republic Wireless, who might be better off choosing its battles carefully.
Lenovo has just revealed this week that it has inked a deal with software giant Microsoft, paving the way for future mobile devices from the Chinese tech giant to come preinstalled with Microsoft’s three productivity apps, namely Microsoft Office (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and other programs), OneDrive (cloud based storage), and Skype (video chat messaging and voice calls).
Republic Wireless has revealed that it is expanding its existing mobile plans by adding brand new options starting at $15 a month. The mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is shifting its service from CDMA only (on the network of major US wireless carrier Sprint) to GSM inclusive. What this means for mobile users is that they will now find it easier to bring their own handsets to the all new mobile plans.
Sure, Motorola may have released a new lineup of Moto smartphones more than a month ago (the Moto Z series, which consists of the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force), but it does not mean that the phone maker has outright left its Moto E series of handsets for dead.
The biggest wireless carrier in America is getting busy heading into the 4th of July weekend. Indeed, Verizon Wireless has decided to revive its $300 trade in offer. Mobile users can bring in their old handset, and then receive up to $300 of credit if they activate a new line of service, upgrade their existing account, or switch to the Big Red.
