Here’s how the bands line up, as Motorola lists them today:

Reviewed: The AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition is the connected toy you’ve always wanted

I have had my eye on the AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition Quadcopter‎ for quite a while, though I was never quite ready to drop $ 300 for one. So when Parrot offered to send me one, to say I was ecstatic would be an understatement. When the package arrived at my door, I quickly dropped what I was doing and got to work (well, got to play I guess). I popped open the box, pulled out  [Read More…]

Eight reasons to buy a Moto X ‘Pure Edition’

It’ll be sold directly through Google Play, be unlocked, and unbranded, and free to enjoy speedy updates that  [Read More…]

The unlocked and unadulterated Moto X might be called ‘Pure Edition’

The unbranded, unlocked version of Motorola’s new Moto X will go by the name Moto X Pure Edition. While it will still retain Motorola’s custom software tweaks, it will lack any of the carrier software found in the different branded versions of the device. It will also be sold directly by Motorola. If this sounds familiar, it’s exactly what Motorola did with the original 2013 Moto X, except it didn’t have a name.
