Motorola’s LATE summer product refresh? A done deal! A barrage of announcements today confirmed the new Moto X and Moto G, in addition to the announcement of availability of the much-anticipated Moto 360 and a new accessory, the Moto Hint.
The new Moto X bumps the screen up to 5.2-inches, adds an aluminum frame and offers a real leather back. It will be available for purchase later this month. Interestingly, a trade-in program will get you up to $300 off your new Moto X purchase. The new Moto G has also arriced. At the same $179 unlocked price as last year, but with solid upgrades in a few different areas is is definitely appealing to the emerging markets and budget-friendly crowd.
The fourth piece of today’s bundle of announcements from Motorola was a Bluetooth ear piece. Lest you think this part would bore you to death, this isn’t an ordinary Bluetooth headset, though. As it’s name suggests, this is a discreet earbud that allows you to perform tasks on your phone and then listen as they play back while being performed. It’s so small you might not even notice someone wearing it, save for the fact that their wallet will be lighter – it will cost almost as much as the Moto G at $149
That smart watch you’ve been hoping for? The Moto 360 is now on sale! At just $249 with a choice of three leather bands, it’s bound to be a hot seller. Will you buy any of these, especially the watch?
