An interesting concept for a modular smartphone blew up online in September, with Dave Hakkens revealing his idea for Phonebloks. It turns out that Hakkens wasn't the only one to be imagining a brave new future for smartphones, with Motorola announcing it has been working on a similar concept for the past year.

Let Gizmag try to help, as we compare the specs and features of the iPhone 5c and Moto X.  Read More

The Moto X can easily become part of the family

It's been a full two weeks since I got Motorola's Moto X home with me and integrated into my daily life. The first few days of my interactions with the 4G smartphone coming to AT&T next week (with other carriers to follow) were covered in my initial Moto X review for Gizmag.
