TORONTO, Aug. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Meet Moto X™ by Motorola, the ultimate
wingman, because your smartphone should work for you—not the other way
around. Moto X represents the best of Motorola and Google, and it's coming to
Canada exclusively for Rogers Wireless customers.
Moto X has a unique curved back, designed to fit your hand. Talk to Moto X and
it learns your voice. With Google Now, it tells you what you need to know -
even when you're not touching it. With two flicks of your wrist, Moto X
becomes your camera and captures the shots you used to miss. It's ready when
"At Motorola our roots are deep in mobile hardware - we invented mobile
communications," says Odile Guinot, vice-president of sales and general
manager, Motorola Mobility Canada. "Now, as a Google company, we've become the
kind of company that can build a smartphone like Moto X. It fuses our history
of mobile innovation with the best of Google mobile services."
"We're thrilled to bring the innovative, 2600 MHz LTE-enabled, Moto X,
exclusively to Rogers customers," said Raj Doshi, senior vice president of
products, Rogers Communications. "Moto X on the blazing-fast Rogers LTE
network gives customers an incredibly fast, premium wireless experience,
allowing them to download large files on the go, stream music and video, and
to stay connected through social media apps so they never miss a beat."
To use your Moto X, you only need your voice. Without touching it at all, you
can get directions, set an alarm or do just about anything—just by talking.
Say "OK Google Now" to get started. Ask it if you need an umbrella and it
gives you up-to-the-minute weather for your location. Tell it you're going
home, and your Moto X will get you there. Because it knows your voice, Moto X
can do things other phones can't.
Moto X is always ready to tell you what you need to know. Instead of an
unhelpful blinking light, Moto X gives you useful info at a glance with Active
Display, which appear right on screen. Even while it's asleep, it's always on
top of things. A last-minute dinner invite? A missed call from your boss? A
key email while an important meeting is going on? It doesn't interrupt.
Get the shot.
Moto X knows you need a camera, and it's always ready to go. Just twist your
wrist twice and it's ready. Touch anywhere on the screen, and you'll get the
shot. All in just a few seconds. Continuous shooting capabilities, as well as
a ten megapixel camera, mean the photos you do take are the ones you want.
With Moto X, you'll always get the shot.
Don't have your Moto X nearby? The Motorola Connect extension for Google
Chrome™ lets you see and respond to notifications and text messages - right
from your desktop. Hate the hassle of switching phones? Motorola Migrate makes
it easy to transfer the contents of your old phone(1) onto your Moto X. Just
pair your phone to your Moto X through WiFi direct and your photos, texts, SIM
contacts and even your call history and some settings will be transferred.
Just a few example of how Moto X puts the smart in smartphone.
Moto X will be available in black or white exclusively to Rogers Wireless
customers this August for as little as $189.99 on select two-year plans.
Existing Rogers wireless customers can reserve theirs on the Rogers
Reservation System* and new customers can sign up for updates on availability
