While everybody’s busy covering the latest and greatest at the IFA tech conference here in Berlin, Motorola is minding its own business across the ocean. It has unveiled a bunch of new accessories that are truly hot. First of, we have the Moto Hint in-ear Bluetooth headset which is really smart, the Turbo Charger and the Power Pack Micro. Let’s have a look a their features.
The new Moto Hint is a single wireless earbud, coming in a variety of designs, giving the ability to quickly and easily ask your phone questions. If you wached the movie ‘Her’ with Joaquin Phoenix, then you know what I’m talking about. The single bad thing about the Moto Hint is that it’s an accessory made exclusive for the new Moto X. Too bad it isn’t coming to the Moto G.
So, you can ask questions like “what’s the weather like?” and get a spoken forecast in second. Moto Hint can be used to ask for directions, turn-by-turn voice navigation, and you can even dictate and send messages, on top of the traditional ability to make and receive calls.
You can choose fabric, leather and wood to match your Moto X, as well as black and white body accents and silver or black metallic finishes. It comes with up to 100 hrs of standby time and up to 10 hours talk time with the charging case. It has a retail price of $149.99, and its official webpage says that it’s ‘coming soon’.
The Motorola Turbo Charger is another new cool accessory that comes with the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology and is Motorola’s fastest charger ever. The company says that it takes just 15 minutes on the latest Moto phones to get up to 8 more hours of battery life. Also, other USB-enabled phones and tablets enjoy up to 15 watts of ‘blazing fast charging speed’. The accessory is also ‘coming soon‘ and will retail for a price of $34.99.
Power Pack Micro
The Power Pack Micro is another new accessory from Motorola with great looks and functionality. Coming soon for a price of $40, this tiny little gadget that acts like a power bank when you run out of battery but also like a tool that you could use to find your keys if you ever misplace them.
This is a stylish gadget, as you can choose from classic white or charcoal canvases, or pick one of six additional colors in bright hues. By using the the built-in Motorola Keylink, you ca to find your phone or keys if they ever get lost. Despite coming with a battery capacity of only 1500 mAh, it definitely makes up in style.
