Verizon subscribers, if you have been meaning to get your hands on the new Motorola Xoom tablets, you will probably need to keep an eye out for the Motorola Xyboard series. That will be the name that the new tablets will be rebranded as under Verizon’s network. We’re guessing that this naming probably has something to do with the term “cyborg” and the “board” could be referring to the fact that it is a tablet.
We wouldn’t be surprised either if Verizon was trying to create a distinct brand name so that users will not be confused and go for the original Motorola Xoom instead. These two tablets will be the Droid Xyboard 10.1 and Droid Xyboard 8.2, with the former being the Xoom 2 and the latter being the smaller Xoom 2 Media Edition. We can expect an announcement to be made shortly.
Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Back Cases Leaked
It looks like there is more to the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 that we can look at this time around, where the smartphone is set to be the very first Droid-branded smartphone that is set to be made available to the masses via Moto Maker. Just in case you were wondering, Moto Maker happens to be Motorola’s very own online hardware customization service. The newly leaked image points to a variety of back covers – perhaps even all of them, where it seems that some are made out of leather, others carrying the possibility of a kevlar case, or perhaps some kind of fabric.
As for the hardware specifications, the Droid Turbo 2 is tipped to arrive with a “shatterproof” QHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, and a generous 3,760 mAh battery. Can’t wait for October 27th for the official unveiling!
Motorola Bounce Said To Be ‘Shatterproof’
Fancy an indestructible phone? That sounds like something right up the Impossible Mission Force’s alley, as those are the folks who are involved in high level espionage and live a life that hangs on the edge, getting into all sorts of scrapes and what not. Having said that, here is a little bit of something that might suit them – the Motorola Bounce, which is also known as the X Force in certain circles.
Well, apparently, it has been said to come with a “shatterproof” build, which can be rather difficult to believe in the first place, but who knows? The Motorola Bounce is also said to arrive with a 5.43” QHD display, a Qualcomm MSM8994 chipset, a choice of either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, 3GB of RAM, a 21MP shooter at the back with a 5MP camera in front, and a 3,760mAh battery. Ah well, we will just have to wait for it to be revealed to know more.
3rd Generation Moto G Spotted With 2GB RAM
It looks like the third generation Moto G from Motorola is about to be on the receiving end of 2GB RAM, as opposed to questions of whether it will come with just 1GB RAM or not. A posting on Indian export-import site Zauba has shown that 190 units of the upcoming third generation Moto G model were sent from Hong Kong to India for testing purposes, with half the number of those being black, while the remaining number were white in color.
Other than having listed down 2GB RAM, it also listed 8GB of internal memory, where each model was valued at $240 a pop. A couple more handsets shipped to India for testing were listed at a far lower value. All in all, we will simply have to wait for the official reveal as to ascertain whether this particular generation of the Moto G will come with 1GB RAM or double that amount this coming July 28th as Motorola holds an event in New York which will most probably tell all by then.
