[CES 2018] Healthcare IoT sign company Vital and Lenovo/Motorola have teamed up to launch the Lenovo Vital Moto Mod at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 today in Las Vegas. It’s described as the first integrated vital signs monitoring platform that accurately measures five vital signs, including systolic and diastolic blood pressure from the finger. The mod is paired with a Moto Z smartphone and it operates via Bluetooth and the […]
Given how big the Star Wars franchise is, it really isn’t surprising to see that many would want to take advantage of it to help market their goods and services. For example OnePlus unveiled a OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition phone, and apparently Samsung has a Star Wars Galaxy Note 8 in the pipeline as well.
While we can’t be sure if modular smartphones will ever become a thing again, it’s safe to say that Motorola’s attempts with the Moto Z series and the Moto Mods are still going on strong. Just recently the company launched a new Polaroid Moto Mod that allowed users to print photos while on the go.
Gone are the days when you had to carry around a big Polaroid camera just to get instant prints of your photos. There are countless portable printers available on the market today that will let you print photos instantly. If you happen to own a Moto Z handset, you can also get the new Polaroid Insta-Share Printer Moto Mod that Motorola has announced today. As the name suggests, this Moto […]
Last month you might recall that Motorola officially announced that they will be releasing a Moto Mod accessory with Alexa for the Moto Z family, and for those who are interested in this particular mod, you might be pleased to learn that it will be available for pre-order starting on the 7th of November, which is tomorrow.
Motorola has made a Moto Mod that brings the power of Alexa to its Moto Z phones. However, the module costs more than what you can get an actual Echo device for. The Alexa speaker Moto Mod is going to cost $150, which begs the question, why not just buy the $99 Echo?
While companies such as LG and Google have ultimately abandoned their plans for modular phones, Motorola is still at it with their Moto Mods designed for their Moto Z family of smartphones. Now if you’re a gamer, then you might be interested to learn that the Gamepad Moto Mod will soon be available.
Bigger displays are something that smartphone users these days seem to be asking for which makes it ideal to watch videos, surf the web, and play games on. It also makes it easier to type on. However there are some who might prefer physical input such as QWERTY keyboards, although such devices aren’t that common these days.
Alexa was everywhere earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017. We saw Amazon’s virtual digital assistant being integrated into everything from smart connected devices to home appliances. The company has now teamed up with Motorola to bring Alexa to smartphones. Motorola today confirmed that later this year customers will be able to purchase a Moto Mod with Amazon Alexa for the Moto Z. This will bring the power […]
LED notification lights aren’t new. In fact many companies have included it in their phones in the past, although for the most part they have been rather subtle in nature. However an Indiegogo campaign for a Moto Mod called the “Edge” wants to change that by giving your Moto Z handset an LED light strip.
While battery packs are a great way to ensure that you always have a bit of extra juice on you where you go, the only downside is that once they’re depleted you not only have to charge your phone, but you’ll also have to charge the battery pack as well. This means more cables and more time spent charging.
With Google more or less shelving Project Ara, we really have to wonder what this means as far as modular phones are concerned. After all if one of the biggest tech companies in the world with all their resources and experts can’t get modular phones to work, who can? However if you are still keen on such devices, there is always Motorola and their Moto Mods.
