With just a day left before its official unveiling, new leaks pointing towards Motorola's upcoming Moto G (2015) continue to surface online. This time around, the photo is a screengrab from a carrier's website displaying what appears to be the third-gen Moto G's pricing.
A report from GSM Arena cited an article from Droid-Life.com sharing the leaked photo taken from U.S. Cellular. Placed under SKU number 186978, the upcoming handset is quoted with a price of $179.99. The publication clarified that the amount is still without a contract.
Given this detail and if Motorola sticks to what has been reported, then it could be an awesome deal for its would-be buyers. Adding to the advantage is the fact that the third Gen unit is rumoured to come with an LTE connectivity support, which the previous model didn't have and it was sold with the same price. more >>

A pair of leaked images via the Chinese website Digi-wo recently fuelled speculations that Sony Mobile may be planning another movie tie-in for one of their flagship phones. The images looked like ones that may likely be part of marketing materials for the upcoming James Bond film "Spectre."
The images were simple posters with the following text: "Made for Bond, Xperia *5" on top of the page, and "Spectre" and the 007 logo at the bottom part of the page. The letter before the number 5 was intentionally blurred as if to hide which among the flagship series it is indicating. The images seemed to be too simple so the report also warned that this is merely a rumor until officially confirmed by Sony.
If this report is true, it will not be the first time that Sony will do a product placement in a Bond movie.The movie after all is part of Sony Pictures, a sister company of the mobile communications company. In a previous Bond movie, "Skyfall," James Bond himself as portrayed by Daniel Craig, sported an Xperia T phone in a few scenes in the film. more >>
