Motorola recently rolled out an Android software update to its current flagship device, the second generation Moto X smartphone. As far as software updates go, this latest one has something cool up its sleeve, a feature that should delight owners of the Moto X handset.
As part of Android 5.1, the latest iteration of Google's Android mobile operating system, Motorola is bringing a new Moto Action gesture that allows owners of the second generation Moto X to activate the handset's flashlight with just a flick of the wrist.
Motorola recently officially announced the Moto Maxx, which is a GSM version of its DROID Turbo. Starting today, the Moto Maxx is rolling out to selected markets including Mexico, Brazil, and specific Latin American regions. As expected of a device that is a variant of the DROID Turbo, the Moto Maxx mostly packs the same specifications as the Turbo. It features a 5.2-inch Quad-HD display screen with 2560 by 1440 resolution, and also sports a 21-megapixel camera on the rear. Other specs of the Moto Maxx include a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 64 gigabytes of internal storage, 4G LTE connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, GPS, microUSB 2.0, and Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac.
Verizon Wireless recently launched the Motorola DROID Turbo Employee Edition via its official website. As its name implies, this version of the Motorola DROID Turbo smartphone is exclusive to employees of the carrier only. The device is priced slightly lower than the standard models, fetching only $99.99 with a two-year contract, $20.83 monthly with Verizon Edge, and $499.99 without a contract. As comparison, the standard version starts at $199.99 with a two-year contract, $24.99 monthly on Verizon Edge, and $599.99 without a contract. With a full $100 savings, Verizon employees definitely enjoy an advantage if they avail of the offer. Some also think this version of the device may be the best-looking so far. As seen on Verizon's website, the DROID Turbo Employee edition features a rear cover rendered in a smooth black kevlar pattern design. On the lower part of the device's backside, a “Limited Edition” branding can be found. Plus, the serial number can be seen marked on the camera's circular lining.
In the past two weeks, numerous leaks have sprung up regarding the Motorola DROID Turbo smartphone. But just recently, fans of the device might have gotten an official look at the device's appearance at last. It appears that Verizon Wireless has unwittingly tweeted an image of the yet-to-be-announced Motorola handset, and then deleted the tweet immediately thereafter. Not quick enough though. Various tech websites have already gotten hold of the image, which shows the rear side of a red-colored device branded with Motorola, DROID, and Verizon. Observers may note that the smartphone has a rather big camera housing. Although the tweet did not come with any description, the device shown on the picture seemed consistent with the one shown in previously leaked photos of the Motorola DROID Turbo that appeared last month. Based on Verizon's tweeted image, the Motorola DROID Turbo looks like a cross between past Verizon DROID offerings and the latest Motorola Moto X, specifically with regards to the Kevlar-like look of the rear cover (reminiscent of old DROID models) and the familiar round, dimpled camera housing.
