Pebble tells us what they think about the apple Watch, Lenovo announces a new device for India and the Moto 360 is back in stock. This and more in today’s afternoon news roundup!
What makes Pebble smartwatches so awesome is that they stay simple and functional. There’s no extra fuss or flashy distractions. What would a company like Pebble think about Apple Watch, its major upcoming competitor?
They were sure to include a message to Apple in their new website. It simply says “Breathe, Jony. It’s just a watch.” They go on to mention all the awesome features Pebble offers, such as amazing battery life, affordability, customizability and simplicity.
Opinion: I will agree that Apple will often glorify its products and act like they have changed everything. They really need to chill sometimes. As Pebble says: “we made a watch, we didn’t solve global warming”.
Indian mobile geeks looking for a worthy phablet to call their own now have a new option. The Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro has just been announced, carrying an Rs. 32,999 (about $533 USD) price tag and an October 6th release date (through Flipkart).
This device does sport a gigantic 6-inch 2560x1440p display, a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 16MP/2MP cameras and a stunning 4,000 mAh battery.
Opinion: That is one hell of a device! It is also among the cheapest devices with a QHD resolution display. Lenovo may not be the most popular for smartphones, but they sure know how to manufacture a good device.
Having a hard time getting a hold of a Moto 360? The device is pretty popular and hard to find, so you should act fast now that you can. The Moto 360 is now in stock at Motorola.com!
Of course, it still costs $249.99 and you can choose between black or stone leather bands. Go get them before they fly!
Opinion: While I am not a big fan of the Moto 360, it may be a good idea to get it now that the latest update has improved battery significantly.
