The unlocked variant of the new Moto G (2014) is reportedly now receiving the official Android 5.0 Lollipop release. Making this $179 phone the first to get the new release, beating out high-end flagships and even Nexus devices.
Motorola is pushing out the Lollipop soak test to the Moto G (2nd Generation).
Following T-Mobile (right after launch) and AT&T (earlier today), Sprint announced the availability on its network of the highly anticipated Nexus 6.
The 32GB Nexus 6 will be available on AT&T for $249.99 on a two-year agreement, while unlocked the price is $682.99.
According to Motorola’s official French Twitter account, the high-end Moto Maxx smartphone will not be made available in Europe.
The new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 have been the talk of the Android town this week, with the Nexus 9 going on sale and the Nexus 6 remaining very hard to get, at least from Google’s Play Store. Our review of the Nexus 9 went up this week, but it wasn’t the only review going live: the new Moto X, Huawei’s massive Mate 7, and Sony’s Xperia Z3 Compact received the same treatment. On the software front, large updates hit Calendar, Maps and a few other Google apps. We’ve heard the first credible rumors about the Galaxy S6, due next February. Finally, Motorola made the rumored global version of the Droid Turbo a reality.
The OTA update to Android 5.0 for the Moto X 2014 edition has been captured, and can now be installed on the device. Motorola is also apparently readying the official start of the soak test for the device.
Although now removed, Motorola had release notes posted for the Moto G 2014-edition’s Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update. It’s only a matter of time before something official is formally announced and the madness begins!
Motorola is now selling the Moto 360 with metal bands. They’ve also announced new leather and silicone options, new watch faces and a new health app!
Google has already apparently sold out of the Nexus 6 units it promised to stock this Wednesday. We have to wonder, what’s going on Google? Why the hangups with stock?
