Motorola Promises Pre-Order For 'New Products,' Moto 360 Stock Refresh Tuesday

Motorola, in a post to its official blog today, announced that the Moto 360 would be back in stock on its website beginning Tuesday, September 16th. What's more exciting, though, is the promise of pre-order for new products beginning the same day. Yes, that means the new Moto X.

But before you get too excited, only the Moto X Pure Edition (the unbranded, unlocked version), and the AT&T variant will be available for pre-order Tuesday.

[Weekend Poll] After Seeing Reviews And Initial Opinions, Are You More Or Less Interested In A Moto 360 Now?

While we haven't posted our own review yet, you may have seen Artem's numerous posts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) about his experience so far, and there's no shortage of reviews on the web at this point.

Most of them basically come down to this: the battery life is the worst of any Wear device (how bad varies on who you're asking, but ambient mode seems unusable as an all-day strategy), but the Moto 360 is still subjectively the best-looking Wear hardware yet.

Motorola Announces Boost Mobile Moto G Android 4.4.4 Over-The-Air Update

Boost Mobile has announced that it is now pushing out the Android 4.4.4 over-the-air update to the Moto G. This release will bump users of the affordable handset up to the latest version of Android, bragging rights that plenty of more powerful handsets can't provide.

Android 4.4.4 is a bug fix update, so don't look for anything particularly exciting. Some stability issues and security vulnerabilities have been addressed, but that's not something that's really going to stand up after rebooting from the update.

CyanogenMod Publishes Unified Nightly ROM For The US GSM, International, Verizon, Sprint, And US Cellular Editions Of The Moto X (2013)

CyanogenMod's custom ROM relationship with the original Moto X has been somewhat... tentative. First the general GSM and Verizon developer editions were given separate nightly builds, then came a unified ROM based on Motorola's Qualcomm S4-based phones, the Moto X and DROID Maxx. (Technically the DROID Mini and DROID Ultra, too, but there's no way to unlock the bootloaders on those.) Now all of the Moto X builds are being unified under a new download entry, codenamed "Ghost."

According to a CyanogenMod representative, the nightly ROMs under the "Ghost" codename should work with all of the available unlocked versions of the Moto X.

Verizon Updates The DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, And DROID RAZR M With Minor Security And Messaging Improvements

As a personal user of the DROID RAZR M, I've got to say that Motorola's 2012 line of branded DROIDs have held up remarkably well. That's due in no small part to frequent and relatively speedy updates. The latest one doesn't come with a new version of Android (they're running 4.4.2 at the moment), but it does have a few security enhancements and improvements to the default messaging app.

Users of the DROID RAZR HD, the DROID RAZR MAXX HD (which has nearly identical software), and the smaller DROID RAZR M should be seeing the updates presently.

iFixit's Teardown Of The Moto 360 Shows Packed Internals And A 20mAh Battery Discrepancy [Updated]

Update: Motorola responded to Ars Technica's post on the same iFixit story to explain the battery discrepancy. According to the statement, 300mAh is a "minumum rating" for the battery manufactured by Pro-Power, while 320mAh is a more typical rating. (Batteries are much less precise in terms of capacity than, say, a RAM DIMM.) The mix-up reportedly stems from the fact that they simply didn't have room for both a minimum and maximum rating on the tiny label, and erred on the side of caution - after all, end users aren't really supposed to see it.

Original Moto X Developer Editions (GSM And Verizon) Receive A $50 Price Cut

We all know the new Moto X is going to drop soon, and it's shaping up to be a fantastic phone. However, Motorola still has some last gen devices sitting around. What better way to get rid of them than to cut the price... a small price cut in this case. The Developer Edition Moto Xs for Verizon and GSM networks is now $399 instead of $449.

Verizon Has The Moto 360 With Metal Band Up For Pre-Order, Estimated Delivery Date November 11th

We knew Motorola was planning to sell the Moto 360 with a metal band later this fall, but Verizon already has a pre-order page up. That's the good news. The not so good news is that it won't ship until November 11th, according to the site. Ouch.

Motorola's Punit Soni: There Will Be No Second Generation Moto X Developer Edition For Verizon

Root addicts and ROM flashers on Verizon, prepare to lose it. According to a short question and answer session with Motorola Mobility's VP of Product Management Punit Soni, there will be no Developer Edition of the swanky second-gen Moto X for Verizon. Google+ user Shane Barone asked Mr. Soni about the availability of a developer edition and got this apologetic reply:

soni

Developer Editions are special carrier editions of phones sold without a contract and with an unlockable bootloader, made available for customers on carriers that permanently lock bootloaders as a matter of course.
