2014 is coming to a close, and while there were tons of gadgets released this year, the team here has decided to list down their favorite top two out of the massive lot. Head past the jump and check out what everyone has selected. Maybe the list will give you some ideas for Christmas, too!
We recently saw Apple introduce iOS 8 to a whole host of compatible iPhone and iPad devices, and now it's Android's turn to take things to the next level. As we should all know by now, getting our hands on the latest and greatest version of the Android OS isn't as simple as hitting Software Update and watching as the improvements download. Apple have the monopoly on that simplicity it seems. However, if you happen to be the proud owner of an unlocked, mid-range Motorola Moto G smartphone then you'll be the first to officially get your hands on Android Lollipop.
All speculations have been finally laid to rest with Motorola finally announcing the DROID Turbo. As the name itself suggests, the device has the monstrous specs to keep up with the Turbo moniker, and as speculated earlier; pushes down the latest Moto X to a thing of the past.
“Will my device be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update?”, is the question on every excited Android user’s mind. While it’s safe to say that devices other than the Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10 will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, it will be naive to expect more than a few handful devices to receive Android’s latest and greatest.
Numerous leaks of the Motorola-made Nexus 6 in the run-up to today's official announcement have pointed to a device almost identical to the new Moto X but with a larger display. In essence, that's exactly what we've been treated to today by the search giant, whose exciting new phablet is said to be designed for the all new Android Lollipop, and we've got all of the key details and information right here.
Google has made three new ads available online with just days if not hours left to go before it is expected to launch new Nexus devices. With a new Nexus 9 tablet and Nexus 6 smartphone peeping over the horizon, the three new ads have appeared just at the right time, with Google getting ready for another charm offensive while trying to peddle its new wares.
From what we know of the upcoming Google Nexus 6, should that indeed be its name, it will include a large, 2K display, run on the all-new Android L, and instead of LG, will this time be manufactured by Motorola. Given that the Google subsidiary has taken the manufacturing reigns, it should come as no surprise that the leaks of the Nexus 6 have revealed a number of Motorola-inspired design quirks, and in a new set of renders, we get clear look of the overall aesthetic.
The biggest stories in technology these days tend to be about smartphones. Even with smartwatches threatening to take over as the most talked about, highly anticipated hardware releases going, the not-so-humble smartphone still manages to truly capture the imagination like few other new releases.
If you're in the market for a new smartphone, but took the opportunity to pass on Apple's recently released iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in the hope that rumors pertaining to the Google Nexus 6 might be true, then you could be in luck.
In the run-up to IFA 2014, Motorola's invitation alluded to four separate devices. There were two smartphones, which we now know to be the Moto G and Moto X, as well as the Moto 360 smartwatch. The other, rather more mysterious item in the teaser was an earpiece, which has today been unveiled as the Moto Hint. It's not only tiny, unassuming and stylish, but it works as an all-in-one digital assistant, and while the wearables market is currently littered with head-mounted devices and watches very much like the Moto 360, this interesting product has certainly caught our attention.
