Motorola Goes Frosty: Verizon DROID Ultra And DROID Mini Now Available In White

Maybe the black slabs of glass and Kevlar that are Verizon's 2013 DROID lineup aren't doing it for you. If that's the case (and you haven't already bought a customized Moto X), you can now pick up either the svelte DROID Ultra or the pint-sized DROID Mini in shades of white. The capacious DROID Maxx, surprisingly, is still only offered in black.

Unlike some of the early leaks of the white Ultra model, this one seems to be white all over, as opposed to white on the glass panel with a black body.

Moto G Plastic Shells And Flip Shells Available Starting At $15, Shipping Starts On December 2nd

Motorola surprised us earlier this week with an early launch of the US version of their impressive Moto G budget phone. If you ordered one and want a little protection and/or flair for your new gadget, the accessories section of Motorola's official store has been expanded with shells (backplates) and flip shells for the Moto G. Like the phone itself, they'll ship out on December 2nd.

The shells pop on and off of the back of the Moto G, not unlike the faceplates that were sold for old Nokia candybar phones.

Motorola Starts Selling The US GSM Version Of The Moto G Early, Phones Ship On December 2nd

We had previously heard that the US version of Motorola's shockingly inexpensive Moto G would be headed to the United States in January, a couple of months after some international markets. It looks like Motorola couldn't wait until next year and has started selling the phone on its website. You can order the US version of the GSM phone now, and it's set to ship on December 2nd.

The phone is being offered in 8GB and 16GB versions, with the low price of $179 and $199, respectively.

Weekend Poll: Are Motorola's Speedy Android 4.4 Updates Making You Consider Them More For Your Next Phone?

I think we were all a little impressed and surprise last week when Motorola announced in rapid succession that the AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile variants of the Moto X were all getting Android 4.4 immediately. They even beat Google's own GPE devices to an OTA. That's kind of incredible.

The fact that Motorola is now Google-owned probably had just a little bit (OK, a lot) to do with this, but the company's renewed attitude toward Android updates is something enthusiasts have been begging for in an OEM for years now.

[Oops] Walmart Is Selling The Moto X With 'Android 2.3'

Hurry up, ladies and gentlemen! If you sprint to Walmart between November 20th and 26th, you can apparently pick yourself up a very vintage Moto X running none other than Android 2.3. Those on-screen buttons and #HOLOYOLO accents look pretty spiffy on this fine Gingerbread device, don't they?

Curiously, on November 29th, the same phone not only drops to half price for Black Friday, it also gets a ninja upgrade to Android 4.2 and a $100 Walmart gift card (which is actually a pretty good deal since you're effectively netting 50 bucks - after signing a contract, of course).

AT&T Announces Android 4.4 OTA For The Moto X, Update Already Hitting Devices

Following close behind the arrival of KitKat for the Moto X on both Verizon and T-Mobile, AT&T has now announced that it, too, is pushing out an OTA. Between Verizon's version of the handset getting the update before anyone else and the Moto X getting Android 4.4 pushed out before the Nexus 4 and both Google Play Edition devices, there is a lot to be surprised about here. Surprised, and impressed.

Motorola Partners With 3D Systems For Project Ara Modular Components

Quick reminder: the modular smartphone is a real thing that's really happening. Motorola blew our minds with the announcement of a plan to create modular phones not totally unlike the Phonebloks concept, and now the manufacturer is one step closer to making some real hardware. 3D Systems, makers of the Cube 3D printer and similar equipment, is Motorola's first partner on the Project Ara.

So what does that mean? Motorola needs some way of adding flexibility to a traditionally rigid manufacturing process, and 3D printing would seem to be a natural solution.

Motorola Assist And Motorola Connect For The Moto X And 2013 DROIDs Are Now In The Play Store

They've done it with the camera. They've done it with Touchless Control and Migrate. They've even done it with the FM Radio from the brand new Moto G. Now Motorola is moving even more of its proprietary phone apps into Google Play Land, presumably to allow for more frequent and reliable updates. Today Motorola Assist and Motorola Connect, both exclusive to the Moto X and Verizon's new Motorola DROID phones, are available on the Play Store.
