Now's the time... though I'm not completely sold on this. After being so excited about the last Moto X and being generally let down by the full experience (camera and battery hurt), I'm hesitant.
As promised by Motorola, you can now pre-order your customized Moto X Pure Edition in the US. Currently, Motorola is estimating ship dates of around September 17, though that could always change depending on how many orders are placed. The Moto X Pure Edition starts at $399 for the 16GB version, and can go as high as $525 for the 64GB version with a premium back. If you have been...

+Bret Smith I just can't stand TouchWiz or the bloatware that Samsung has. I like stock Android.

So. Much. IFA. Happening.

Sony Z5, new Acer stuff, ZenWatch 2, crazy gaming phones and tablets. Huawei watch (round 2) and new Huawei phones. And IFA hasn't even started!

Hey, turns out other watches work (mostly) fine on iOS. Will need tweaking to fully support them, though, it seems.
Despite Google's claim that the LG Watch Urbane is the only current-generation hardware that would be supported in Android Wear on iOS, it appears as though many other watches can connect as well. We have been able to connect a Moto 360, LG G Watch and others, with some issues along the way. For example, we have seen duplicate notifications on the Moto 360, some of which won't clear...

+L. Banks yup, you can always check the photo details to get which phone (or at least a model number) it was taken with.

With the Nexus 6 getting a little older, and the Note 5 being the new hotness in big phones, I sat down and compared the two.
Though the Nexus 6 is almost a year old, it holds its own against the new Galaxy Note 5. The Galaxy Note 5 may be the hot new big phone right now, but the last huge phone on everyone's mind — the Nexus 6 — is still around and very much a fresh device. Though the Note 5 is merely weeks old at this point and the Nexus 6 has been on shelves for about 10 months, these are both high-end...

Here it is! A surprisingly more refined experience than the previous Samsung Gear watches. And guess what — it's no longer exclusive to Samsung phones.
(Or, why you should no longer turn up your nose at the Tizen-powered wearable.) When you think back, in this age of Android Wear and Apple Watches, Samsung actually was one of the first to enter the smartwatch game. And maybe it was a little too ambitious at the time. The watches tended to be pretty big — and as nerdy as you'd expect — and tried to do too much while not doing anything...

Not a dramatic change, but all of the right moves. Better internals, still has ambient light detection, new size and color options, and Moto Maker.
One of the most popular first-gen Android Wear watches has finally gotten the refresh it so desperately needed. Plans for a refresh to the Moto 360 have leaked from every possible direction over the last couple of weeks, but today Motorola has made its new Android Wear lineup official. Instead of one watch, we now have four — a 46mm and 42mm Mens duo, a 42mm Womens Edition, and the...

Very interesting phone, and a great sign that it hit its goal on day 1.
 
Nextbit only just launched its Robin smartphone on Kickstarter earlier today, but it has already surpassed its $500,000 funding goal with a month to go.
Nextbit only just launched its Robin smartphone on Kickstarter earlier today, but it has already surpassed its $500,000 funding goal with a month to go. Robin is the first smartphone out of Nextbit, a new company made up of former Android and HTC alums, that brings a unique take on the smartphone experience. The big thing behind the Nextbit Robin is its focus on the cloud, with the...

+Jordan Carroll​ Yep, the design alone almost made me buy it. But with the Nexus' season upon us, I just couldn't go for it.

Wanna know the full scoop on the Moto X Play? +Alex Dobie is here to inform you.
The most affordable Moto X yet aims to dominate the competitive new mid-range market — but falls short in an important area ... The quick take Launching around the £270 mark, the Moto X Play delivers a great deal for the money — a great screen, a decent camera and solid battery life, not to mention Moto's excellent software experience. But nagging performance and multitasking issues...

Alright, you've got me, I wanna try this thing.
While the rumors surrounding the BlackBerry 'Venice' slider continue to swirl, the device has now appeared once again in some new, clearer images which are pretty on par with everything we've seen thus far. As mentioned previously, there's still a lot of things up in the air surrounding this device and BlackBerry has yet to announce anything officially but judging from these images, the...

+Eric T​ that's awesome! And that's the most accurate description I've heard/read about the stock market. The only difference is those pesky broker fees. Back when Google went public, I begged my mom to sell her Kodak stock and buy Google. Both companies have since gone in different directions. She never did it. Had I had the money...
