Motorola's latest Moto Mod is a $200 Polaroid photo printer

Motorola has struggled to come up with compelling Moto Mod accessories, and its latest attempt is a partnership with Polaroid. The new Insta-Share Printer Moto Mod plugs into your Moto Z device so you can print your snapshots instantly on 2x3-inch adhesive sheets. Does that sound vaguely fun? Well, you'll pay $200 for the privilege.

Motorola (sort of) returns to the tablet market with the AT&T 'Moto Tab'

The 2011 Motorola XOOM is one of the most legendary Android devices of all time, even if it wasn't a very good product. Motorola and Google went big with a Super Bowl commercial, and it was the first device to run the tablet-tailored Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It was perhaps the first real iPad competitor, but the high initial price and lack of tablet-optimized apps meant it never really took off. Later that year, Motorola released an incremental update, and that was the last tablet Motorola ever made... until today.

Motorola doubled its marketshare and shipped twice as many phones this year

Motorola's acquisition by Lenovo has been a mixed bag, at the very least. While the company still makes some of the best budget phones around (like the G5 Plus), it has largely stopped delivering speedy Android updates, and its product lineup gets more confusing by the month. Despite those problems, Motorola is still doing just fine in the United States, and even doubled its market share compared to this time last year.

Motorola releases Android 7.1.1 kernel source code for Moto X Play and DROID Maxx 2

Back in 2015, Motorola released the Moto X Play, a 5.5" phone with a massive 3,630mAh battery. In the United States, the phone was called the DROID Maxx 2, and was a Verizon exclusive. Over the past month, Android 7.1.1 has slowly been rolling out to the X Play in some regions, with the phone previously running Android 6.0. An update is planned for the Maxx 2, but it hasn't been released yet.

Motorola releases kernel source code for the Moto X4

Since the Android kernel is under the General Public License, manufacturers are required to publish any modifications they make. Motorola has been producing quite a few phones lately, and to the company's credit, the kernel source code for each phone has been released in a mostly-timely manner.

Verizon updates Moto Z2 Force with support for its upcoming Gigabit LTE

5G is still a year or two away, and even then, hardly any phones will support the technology. Many networks have yet to saturate the existing LTE wireless standard, but Verizon (among other carriers) has been working toward that goal in some areas. Verizon has started pushing an update to the Moto Z2 Force, giving it support for the carrier's upcoming 'Gigabit Class LTE' service.

Moto X4 (Android One edition) review: This is not the Moto X you're looking for

Motorola had hit a rough patch when Google came calling back in 2011. It took some time to clear out the queue of sub-standard devices, but the first true Google-backed Motorola effort came in 2013 with the launch of the Moto X. This device broke new ground with clever software features like Moto Display (called Active Display at the time) and a customizable design. Motorola made a few more Moto X phones, all of which were excellent devices. Lenovo didn't keep the Moto X going when it took over from Google, preferring to sell devices like the modular Moto Z.

Here we are, two years after the last Moto X launched, and there's another phone that calls itself "Moto X." This is the Moto X4, a device that comes with the added distinction of being the first Android One phone in the US.

Amazon's newest Prime Exclusive phone is the Moto X4 for $329

The Moto X4 is Motorola's latest kind-of-budget phone, which despite the name, bears no resemblance to the Moto X of past years. Its availability in the United States is somewhat limited, with Motorola saying it will sell the phone unlocked on its website, and Project Fi offering an Android One version. In a few hours, there will be another way to buy the X4 - from Amazon.

Motorola releases kernel source code for Moto G5S

'Quantity over quality' must be Motorola's new motto, because the Moto G5S and G5S Plus are the 11th and 12th phones the company has released this year. The G5S is yet another budget phone from Moto, a device that blurs the lines between mid-range and flagship. You can read our review to learn more (we tried out the Plus, but the devices are very similar), but it comes out as a weird product that doesn't make much sense alongside the existing lineup.
