Today Motorola unveiled its Moto G smartphone, which is related to the Moto X in many ways, but very different in others. I had the chance to try out the Moto G in person at Motorola's Canadian HQ in Toronto, and in many ways, it's a very impressive device. In others, however, it still reveals its cost consciousness.

 

One of the first things I noticed was that the phone feels a little chubby. It's relatively thick compared to premium smartphones like the Moto X or the Nexus 5, but that's to be expected considering the screen it's packing and the price. Display tech costs a lot when you're trying to reduce thickness, less so when you're unconcerned on that score.

Kyocera recently launched the Hydro XTRM with MetroPCS and as of today, there is word of the durable and waterproof handset coming to another US carrier. This latest is T-Mobile, though, this time around the Hydro XTRM will only be available for business customers. Pricing has yet to be announced, however Kyocera and T-Mobile have said the handset will be available beginning on November 20th.

The Hydro XTRM feature set includes a 4-inch (800 x 480) impact-resistant display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 2000 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera and 4G LTE connectivity. There will also be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The key though is in the casing and the durability of the phone and to that point we look towards the IP57 and Military Standard 810G ratings.

Motorola officially announced the Moto G earlier this morning. While there wasn’t much in the way of surprises given all the earlier leaks and rumors, the confirmation is welcomed. Perhaps more important though, Motorola is now offering two options to consider — the Moto G and/or the Moto X. As usual, any purchase decision will come down to individual preferences, however we can break down the specs of each device.

Retailers everywhere have stopped selling the new HP Chromebook 11, effective immediately. Best Buy store managers were sent a memo which read, in part, “Stores should stop selling the HP Chromebook 11 effective immediately”. This removal from the retail space is widespread, with Amazon and other retailers also pulling the item from their product listings.

The device is also gone from the Play Store devices page. The Best Buy memo notes that all stock should be pulled, and stored in a secure location in their warehouse. We’ve not heard of any issue with malfunction, or any type of fires starting with the device, so this is all very curious. Amazon’s listing notes the device is not available directly because “customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it’s described here.”

So many thoughts to be thunk about the Moto G. Relatively unimpressive specs — save for that price. Not quite a Moto X, but will that matter to most folks in this target market? And will such a low cost to consumers — under $200, off contract and unlocked — finally spur some sort of change in the industry?

Moto GIf you're looking to get the new Moto G — be sure to check out our quick-look video — on Verizon when it's available here in the U.S. in early 2014, it looks like you're going to have to go prepaid to do it.

The official VZWNews Twitter account this morning confirmed as such.

Vodafone Gets Own-Branded Smartphone, The Smart 4G

 

I guess it does make perfect sense for Vodafone to come up with its very own branded smartphone, and the Vodafone Smart 4G would be their first attempt. Using the services of Coolpad from China to manufacture the Vodafone Smart 4G, this is no high end device, but it will be the first from Vodafone to feature LTE connectivity while carrying the Vodafone brand.

Samsung ATIV S Neo Hits AT&T

AT&T already has a fair number of smartphones under their belt at this point in time, but they see it important to diversify their portfolio, which is why here we are with word that the Samsung ATIV S Neo has finally hit Ma Bell, being the first Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Samsung which happens to run on AT&T’s LTE network.

LG, along with M&C Saatchi have come up with a rather interesting advertising campaign. LG is using this to promote the G2 smartphone and has it running in Sweden. While that means a vast amount may never see these ads in person, they are adding a nice spin on the regular competition bash.

 

You see, these ads are recognizing and targeting other manufacturer handsets. For example, those surfing with a Galaxy S 4 would see any ad that makes fun of the processor. Alternatively, those carrying an HTC One would see something regarding battery life and those carrying an iPhone would see something regarding the size of the display.

The option to turn off BlinkFeed is good to have — but you'll be missing out on a great feature

One of the more radical changes HTC brought in its Sense 5 user interface was the addition of BlinkFeed, a somewhat customizable news reader built into your home screens. In fact, it was meant to serve as your home screen, showing you the latest from your favorite news sources, Facebook and Twitter.

Sprint To Deliver HTC One Max This Year

Sprint has been offering unlimited wireless services for quite some time already, hence it is not surprising to see that they have just announced that they will be putting up the recently introduced HTC One max smartphone to be part of their network devices later this year, which means we will be able to see this phablet being made available before 2013 clocks out.

The Android tablet market is about to get a massive shake up from the folks at NVIDIA. Many of you have probably seen the leaks of the NVIDIA Tegra Tab, and today we’re getting all the details. They aren’t selling it, instead they’ve built an entire platform around the Tegra 4 quad-core processor, and their partners like eVGA (from the PC space) will be selling impressive tablets starting at $199.

The reason we say this is about to shake up the tablet market is because of a few key aspects. For one, these will be well-rounded Android tablets designed, built, and even updated (likely stock Android like the NVIDIA SHIELD) all by NVIDIA. This means amazing performance on stock Android tablets, ones that will get fast updates. Their launch partners such as eVGA, PNY, Zotac, and even XOLO will all be offering these impressive tablets starting at $199.

LG unveiled a case for the G2 shortly before the official announcement for the handset. And while that could have been considered nothing more than a one-off error with timing, it looks like it has happened once again. This time we are seeing an official LG case for the yet to be announced LG Vu III.

We have been seeing some rumors and leaks surrounding the Vu III, however as of today it looks like LG has unveiled a case for the handset. There are a few images of the case, but otherwise the details are still on the lighter side. These cases for the Vu III appear to following a recent trend in that notifications from the phone will be presented on the case itself.

BlackBerry has confirmed earlier rumours that it was flirting with building a phablet and quietly taken the wraps off its biggest phone yet: the all-touch BlackBerry Z30 packs a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, which puts it on the cusp of phablet territory and a step up on the the screen real estate offered by its previous all-touch flagship, the 4.2 inch Z10.

BlackBerry is describing the Z30 as the “fastest and most advanced” phone in its portfolio — with a 1.7 GHz processor plus quad-core graphics (vs the Z10′s dual-core 1.5 GHz chip), a 2880 mAh battery (the largest cell it’s ever put in a phone) and an improved antenna designed to boost reception in low-signal areas.

Looks like things are picking up again for Google‘s streaming device as developers released an update for the Google Chromecast. The update, which bumps the Chromecast software to build 13300, doesn’t contain anything new other than a bunch of fixes and improvements.

With the rush of new device announcements early this month, the Chromecast slipped quietly into the background, especially after a slight controversy regarding local media streaming. But just last week, the device has gone back in stock on Google Play. The random appearance of Chromecast support for embedded YouTube players also showed fans and curious onlookers signs of life.

Nokia RM-927 Hits The FCC

 

It goes without saying that Microsoft’s GDR3 update is about to be released to the masses really soon, and in recent times, we have managed to catch some leaks where software and hardware are concerned. Apart from that, there are also whispers of a 6” device from Nokia’s range of Lumia handsets, which has been touted to be the Lumia 1520, and it does seem as though the Lumia 1520 is on its way to AT&T subscribers as well as those who are rocking to Verizon Wireless.

This Might Be The Nexus 5

I am quite sure that by now, just about everyone are pretty sure that the Nexus 5 made an extremely short debut in the Android 4.4 KitKat unveiling video recently, and the folks at the FCC could very well have come up with something interesting. This set of photos do seem to point to a possible LG Nexus 5, as its back has been revealed to show off a finish that is rather similar to the alleged Nexus 5 in the KitKat unveiling video.

Instagram has recently announced that advertising will begin showing up within the next year. The details are still on the light side, meaning Instagram has yet to announce any specifics. Or for that matter a date of when these advertisements will begin showing in your feeds. But that being said, Ms. White, director of business operations at Instagram has said they should be ready to begin selling ads within the next year.
