or talking to my mother while cleaning the apartment. Multitasking just got easier, with the new Moto X smartphone introduced today by Motorola. The Moto X is designed to be more responsive, more alert and provide the best of Google’s mobile services. Expanding our large selection of LTE-enabled Android smartphones, the Moto X will be exclusively available from Rogers this month.
Here are three Moto X features that will help make your life easier:
- You can control the Moto X with only your voice. No kidding. With Touchless Control, start by saying “OK Google Now.” Then, you can get directions, set an alarm or even ask it if you need to bring an umbrella with you and it will give you up-to-the-minute weather for your location. Did I mention you can do this without touching it at all? Awesome.
- Love taking pictures? Another great feature I would definitely use is the quick capture camera. Twist your wrist twice to open the camera application and take great action shots from the Toronto Blue Jays game. You can also touch the screen anywhere to get the shot you need.
- Minimize your “must check phone” cravings with Moto X’s Active Notifications feature, which showcases useful info as it comes in – right on the screen (even while it’s asleep!). No more staring at a blinking light that doesn’t actually tell you anything.
What about the blazing fast LTE speeds?
The Moto X is built to run on Rogers 2600 MHz LTE spectrum, the fastest wireless internet band available in Canada. Capable of delivering higher speeds than other LTE bands, customers with the Moto X will be able to download large files quickly or stream music with no buffering. Rogers has more LTE network deployed in the 2600 MHz spectrum band than any other carrier.
How do I get one?
Moto X will be available in black or white exclusively to Rogers Wireless customers this August for $189.99 on select two-year plans. Existing Rogers wireless customers can reserve theirs now on the Rogers Reservation System and new customers can sign up for updates on availability at www.rogers.com/motox.
What do you think of the new Moto X? What would you ask Google Now?
