No matter how much we may love a phone, there comes a time for it to head on to greener pastures, to shed its physical body and exchange bytes with the souls of other great handsets in the sky. Today I am sad to write the obituary for the Droid Maxx Developer Edition. This is a great phone with a massive 3500mAh battery and support for wireless charging, giving it the optimal power situation. Read More
Motorola hasn't forgotten about those devices that aren't part of the "Moto" family. The Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra, and Droid Mini on Verizon are getting the Android 4.4.4 update starting today. Even the Moto X hasn't been given the go ahead yet. Read More
Would you believe that Motorola has been trying to decide what to do with the Photon Q for like...some large number of months? It's true. Up until today, the Motorola Upgrade Portal has been sitting steadily on "Future plan coming soon" for the poor ol' Q. Now, it has been updated to say "This device will remain on Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean)" – not much of a shocker there, really.
Oh well, at least folks who may still be using the Photon Q should be approaching the end of their contract at some point in the very near future, assuming the device was purchased shortly after it was released back in August of 2012. Read More
As just announced on Motorola's official blog, the company will begin rolling out Android 4.4.3 KitKat to unlocked Mot X, G, and E owners this week. Motorola has made a point of rapid updates since it was acquired and subsequently sold by Google, with Punit Soni acting as the public face of Motorola's software update team.
This update will be rolling out to unlocked (T-Mobile) Moto X owners, the unlocked Moto G (including the new and old 3G variants, as well as LTE the version), and the Moto E. Read More
A few days ago, it was confirmed that Google had started asking manufacturers to brand boot animations with a specific "Powered by Android" lockup as part of Google's Mobile Services license. Samsung's Galaxy S5 and HTC's new One M8 both carry the branding, and today Motorola's Moto X and Moto G have joined the party, but Motorola has something else in store as well - a new boot animation just in time for April Fools Day.

During the Q&A section of Motorola's Moto 360 Hangout today, a few interesting questions surfaced. In typical industry fashion, however, Motorola wasn't quite ready to give any sort of definitive answers on many of them. Still, there were a few small gems in the mix, including a big one on everyone's mind: will it work with all Android devices, or just those manufactured by Motorola? The answer was very clear: it will work with all (assumingly current) Motorola devices, as well as all others running Android 4.3 and above. Read More
Almost perfectly timed with Google's Android Wear announcement, Motorola has laid out its new smart watch plans. The Moto 360 is a round smart watch running on Android Wear that you will be able to actually purchase this summer. I know, this seems like the future all of a sudden.
Fans of Motorola and ROM flashing will be excited to learn CyanogenMod is giving them what they want. NewCM11 nightly builds of the popular ROM now support a ton of Motorola devices with unified builds. You just have to figure out which phones are which – it's a little tricky.
There is a single ROM for the Falcon, which would be a cool name for a phone. It's actually the Moto G, and it looks like this ROM should work for all variants. Read More
Motorola's Droid Zap, an exclusive feature for Verizon's 2013 DROID line, always seemed a bit on the limited side. Maybe that's because only those three DROID phones could actually use the service - other phones could receive photos from nearby users with the Zap app, but only the DROID Ultra, DROID Mini, and DROID Maxx could send them. Today Moto has seen the light and made both sending and receiving photos possible for any phone. Read More
Google may have just sold Motorola Mobility to Lenovo, but it seems the giant may have kept one of the manufacturer's juiciest pieces (besides patents) to itself.
According to Pocket-lint, Lenovo has confirmed that Google will be keeping Moto's Advanced Technology and Projects group, notably responsible for Project Ara, the modular phone project announced in October in collaboration with Phonebloks, and other experimental ventures.
The team, led by former DARPA Director Regina Dugan is said by the Verge to be heading to Google's Android team, reporting to Sundar Pichai. Read More
