Save 15% on a Moto X Pure Edition and Moto 360 bundle

moto 360 2nd gen review aa (6 of 27)

If you somehow managed to escape the holiday period without a new phone or wearable, Motorola wants you to treat yourself. Right now you can save $100 on any Moto X Pure Edition and Moto 360 bundle. There are also some other discounts on the Moto X (2nd gen.), Nexus 6 and Moto G (2nd gen.).

If you opt for the base model Moto X Pure Edition, which retails at $399, and the standard Moto 360 which goes for $299, you’ll save 15% on the purchase price: $598 rather than $698. That discount percentage decreases slightly if you increase the price of either device, but even at 10% off, now is a better time to buy than yesterday.

Buy now: Moto X Pure Edition with Moto 360
Buy now: 32 GB Moto X (2nd gen.)


Both offers are good until 10:59 AM (CST) on January 12 but there are some other good deals on the site too. You can get a free upgrade to the 32GB version of the Moto X (2nd gen.), saving $50, or save over 40% on a Moto G (2nd gen.) for just $99.99. Finally, the original Nexus 6 has also been marked down by over 40%, costing just $349.99 for the 32 GB version.

The new Moto G price is labeled as a permanent price reduction. The cheaper Nexus 6 price only applies to the Midnight Blue version, with the White version costing a ridiculous $150 more.  The $50 saving on the current Moto X though is only valid to January 12 though.

Google Pixel 4a pre-orders go live with August 20 availability

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more. Additionally, US carriers will offer the phone, including Google Fi, US Cellular, and Verizon.Customers who purchase the Pixel 4a receive three month free trials of YouTube Premium, Google Play Pass and Google One.Interestingly enough, the Google Pixel 4a appears to be offered in black only through Google’s online store. Other colors expected in the lead-up to announcement included white and blue. Perhaps various carriers and retailers will have different options.

Google begins dropping details on Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5

Today might be the official arrival of the Google Pixel 4a, but that doesn’t mean Google isn’t already looking to the horizon. Indeed, Google is ready to share details about the next few models in the pipeline.According to Google, the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5 will arrive “this fall” and both will feature 5G connectivity. Moreover, Google is already sharing its expected price for the former, putting it at just $499.Whether the true difference between the standard 4a and the 5G-ready version is 5G support remains unclear.Google often debuts its flagship Pixel phones in October, and that would definitely fit in thethis fall” timeline. However, with the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that the Pixel 4a arrived nearly three months later than expected, it’s hard to say for sure.As Google tells us both the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.If you’re interested in learning more about either of these phones, you can sign up to receive updates.
