    Motorola Is Becoming Google’s Surface

    Motorola isn’t doing very well as a part of Google. In Google’s most recently reported quarter, Motorola garnered revenue of $1.18 billion. Not a small number, but a mere 8% of its parent company’s consolidated revenue. And, in the comparable third quarter of 2012, its revenue totaled $1.78 billion. That’s a decline of 34% in a year, even with Motorola launching its… Read More

    Motorola Hiring For New Engineering Office In Waterloo – BlackBerry’s Loss Is Google’s Gain

    Motorola is “ready to go on a hiring spree” in Waterloo, the home of BlackBerry HQ, according to a new report from the Financial Post. The Google-owned maker of smartphones already has an existing, small office in the heart of one of Canada’s most important tech hubs, but plans to build a proper, full-fledged engineering team in the area.

    Fly Or Die: Motorola Moto X

    The Moto X has caused a rift between the TechCrunch Gadgets family. Chris Velazco and I think it’s just fine, whereas Darrell Etherington and John Biggs are rather unimpressed. But why? Read More

    Motorola’s New Keyboard-Packing Droid 5 Reportedly Caught On Film

    Motorola just showed off three new Droid smartphones last month (or, if you prefer, one new Droid and two spinoffs), but it’s apparently not done cranking out Verizon hardware just yet. Another new Motorola device clad in Verizon livery was spotted in a batch of newly-leaked images from Chinese social network Weibo, and it seems to hearken back to the Droid line’s roots. Read More

  • Hell No Moto X

    Hell No Moto X

    Motorola unveiled its Motorola X smartphone last week, and our own Chris Velazco found the phone impressive enough. But the more I think about it, the less impressed I am by Motorola’s big brand relaunch under the Google banner. The Moto X never really excited me to begin with, and it’s likely not meant to, with a slew of options squarely aimed at shoppers who value… Read More

    This Week On The TechCrunch Gadgets Podcast: Nexus 7, Moto X, And 3D Printing Gives You Cancer

    Here comes the Moto X, the fanciest phone out of Motorola in a long time and here already came the Nexus 7, a device that may beat out the iPad Mini. We talk about both of them. Then we move on to how 3D printing is killing us all and how that’s pretty terrible. Read More

    The New Motorola Is Focusing On “Very Few” Devices, And A Low-Cost Phone May Be Next

    Motorola has never been the most prolific smartphone maker, but there’s no question that they’ve churned out a lot of hardware over the years. Now that Motorola is flying under Google’s banner, though, you can expect to see some shifts in the company’s hardware strategy, and it looks like that scattershot approach to making phones is getting the ax. According to… Read More

  • Hands On With Motorola's Moto X Smartphone

    Hello Moto X

    After Google acquired Motorola Mobility last year, we wondered what was next for the smartphone company. It spent ages clearing out its pipeline of smartphones that were already in development before rumors of an X Phone made in America started making the rounds. In those early X Phone days, Rick Osterloh, Motorola’s SVP of Product Management said the team that worked on the device… Read More

    Motorola Clears The Pipes With New Verizon Droids – Time For The Google Era To Begin In Earnest

    Motorola released a trio of devices today at a special press event for its line of Verizon phones in New York City. The company showed off phones that in many ways resembled their Droid devices of the past, and these keep the Droid branding, too. They’re looking mostly like successors to Razr devices, but with tweaks that could signal what we’ll see now that Google is more… Read More

    Verizon Reveals The $99 Motorola Droid Mini, $199 Droid Ultra, And The $299 Droid Maxx

    As if we didn’t already have enough Motorola phones to wait for, Verizon showed off a trio of new Motorola DROID smartphones at a (surprisingly cozy) event in New York City. The flagship of the three is the DROID Ultra, which Motorola’s Rick Osterloh refers to as the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone out there with its and 7.18mm thick chassis. Motorola’s fascination with Kevlar… Read More
