We've been trying to keep our heads up about the Lenovo-Motorola deal, but let's be honest: news like this is not encouraging. A Wall Street Journal report claims that Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside, whom many had credited with the company's impressive new product lines in 2013, is leaving for Dropbox. Woodside began working for Motorola after more than ten years at Google, succeeding Sanjay Jha after Google acquired the company.

The Wall Street Journal cites three anonymous sources in its detailed report, but Google confirmed the news shortly thereafter.

Android 4.4.2 is reaching the Moto X on T-Mobile today, which passed the recent soak test with flying colors. The update notification will be presenting itself soon, but you can also just head into the settings and check for updates manually. Yes, this is one of those rare times the update button will actually do something.

Motorola Moto G - Black

The Motorola direct price on the Moto G is great, but some carriers have opted to sell the phone even cheaper in an attempt to lure customers. US Cellular is following Verizon's lead today in offering the Moto G for just $99.99 off-contract. It's live on the US Cellular website right now and will be in stores February 10th.

The Moto G is $179 from Motorola as an unlocked GSM device, so you're saving a fair amount if you don't mind sticking with USC.

Mobile news hounds, you'd better start getting the popcorn ready - Mobile World Congress starts in just over two weeks. Following Samsung's confirmation of their Unpacked event, Motorola has also scheduled a press event for the Barcelona trade show on Tuesday, February 25th.

Then again, maybe popcorn won't be necessary. According to Pocket-Lint, Motorola will have no major announcements to make at the event, which probably means no new mobile hardware at Mobile World Congress.

T-Mobile has begun its soak test of the Moto X running Android 4.4.2. An update has rolled out to a limited number of users under version number 161.44.25.en.us. A look at the About phone screen below confirms that this is indeed the latest edition of KitKat.

As you've doubtless heard by now, Lenovo is buying Motorola. Which means Google is selling Motorola. Which means some people are, understandably, upset. The future is uncertain for Moto - the company lost nearly $400 million last quarter, and that number is the worst yet under Google's leadership, despite slashing 80% of the Motorola workforce since Google acquired the company in 2011.

Undoubtedly, Lenovo's leadership will bring some changes at Motorola.

Fans of Google in general and Android in particular are still reeling from yesterday's announcement that Motorola is being sold to Lenovo. Google acquired Moto just two years ago, and while its time within Google has been beneficial, it's clearly not going to become the official mobile hardware arm that many had hoped for. But there's no reason to think that the big G is out of the hardware game altogether - in fact, at least one report says that another recent acquisition may be accelerating it.

There comes a time in every major tech corporation's life when it has to let its previously-acquired but only tangentially-related asset go as part of a complex transaction with a multinational electronics firm. For Google, that time came today, when it announced that it would sell Motorola Mobility to Lenovo for $2.91 billion.

I, too, feel your pain. The idea of a Google-run phone manufacturer was, to me, a kind of techno-nirvana.

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.
