The unlocked Moto Z is now available for $699.99 from Motorola, Amazon, and B&H

Motorola granted Verizon the exclusive on the Moto Z family of devices over the summer, but now you can finally pick up a Moto Z that's fully unlocked and compatible with GSM networks. Not that I necessarily think you should—the unlocked Moto Z is priced at $700, and that's without any Moto Mods. You can do it, though.

Motorola's list of Nougat updates includes most 2016 phones, plus the Moto X and Droids from 2015

Motorola picked a pretty busy day to release its list of phones that are slated to be upgraded to Android 7.0 - make of that what you will. After previously confirming that the new Moto Z , Moto Z Droid, and Moto G4 lines would be upgraded to Nougat "starting in Q4," a more complete list was published to the company blog today.

[Update: not until 10/3] Droid Turbo 2 update adds WiFi calling and latest security updates

The Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo 2 was released almost a year ago, and promptly made headlines with claims of a shatterproof screen. Verizon and Motrola have at least made an effort to keep the device updated, compared to other devices on Big Red, and it even received Android 6.0 Marshmallow earlier this year. Now owners of the Turbo 2 can finally use WiFi calling, courtesy of a software update.

An update, titled '24.31.22.kinzie_verizon.verizon.en.US,' is being pushed to all Droid Turbo 2 devices with the "Latest Android™ security updates and bug fixes," as well as full WiFi calling support.

Motorola says that the Moto Z and G4 lines will get Nougat updates "beginning in Q4"

It's a frequent woe of Android users: you buy that fancy, top-of-the-line phone in the summer or fall, and you just know it's going to take the manufacturer months to get around to releasing the updated software that Google pushes out soon. They tend to issue press releases or Twitter posts promising support for the new update, though dates are typically either absent or vague. Such is the case with Motorola's commitment to Android 7.0 on its latest phones.

New Lenovo layoffs at Moto, company has now lost over 95% of employees in four years

Speaking to Droid-life, both sources inside the company and Motorola itself confirmed today that Lenovo has conducted a brutal round of layoffs at Moto. According to DL, over 50% of Motorola's existing US staff have lost their jobs. A 20-year veteran of the company allegedly posted on Facebook that he had been laid off, so it looks like Lenovo is cutting deep at the device-maker.

One source told them that over 700 employees would be asked to leave of the over 1200 Motorola currently employs. No doubt Lenovo hopes to cut costs by integrating much of Motorola's software and hardware development into its own smartphone unit.
