Motorola killed the headphone jack and nobody noticed

Moto Z Force Headphone Jack
Lenovo’s Tech World keynote was packed with announcements, some of them being a lot more interesting to consumers than others. Right at the end, Lenovo unveiled its newest Android flagship devices – or a second family of hot Android devices, considering that the PHAB2 Tango smartphones were also announced at the event. There are many interesting things about the Moto Z devices presented yesterday, ultra-thin handsets that bring modularity to Motorola’s lineup of mobile products. One of them is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, which absolutely nobody noticed during the event.

Motorola’s new Moto Z line features swappable modular smart backs

377403 Anyone else starting to get the feeling that all of these modular smartphones are becoming interchangeable? Not in the sense that you can swap products cross-platform, of course. That’s not how proprietary hardware works. The latest take on the compelling (though far from mature) space are two new Moto Z handsets, which were introduced practically concurrently with Lenovo’s… Read More

Purchasing your own cable modem may save money and allow for faster data speeds

If you get your home internet connection via your local cable provider, then it may be wise to invest in your own cable modem. Why? Have a look at your bill. If the cable company provided you with a modem, you might notice that it’s charging you a monthly lease fee.

This leasing option seems to be more common in the US, but investing in your own modem could end up saving you money in the long run. Outright owning a modem also means that you can sell it once you’re finished using it.

Lenovo video teases return of Motorola’s iconic RAZR flip phone

ILY5M Motorola’s RAZR surely stands as one of the most recognizable phones of yesteryear (although myself I preferred the Samsung Trace) — and while the brand has been desultorily maintained by Verizon, a new video from Lenovo suggests a more serious throwback device is nearly at hand, so to speak.

Motorola (Brand) Is Alive And Doing Well

moto_briefing Two years after Lenovo acquired Motorola, it looks like Motorola is doing fine. Or at least that’s what the business unit is trying to say. Today at a meeting with reporters, Motorola president Rick Osterloh said that the Moto brand is not going anywhere. You can expect more Moto G and Moto E in the future, as well as more Lenovo phones.
