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 you are.
"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
"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
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 phone1 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 at www.rogers.com/motox. For more information, please visit motorola.ca.
