With all that has been going on at Motorola over the past few weeks, one could forgive any decision to avoid Mobile World Congress. After all, the firm hasn’t had much of a presence there in the past few years, but our hopes were higher than usual following the Moto X and Moto G’s launch. However, Motorola has confirmed it is going to be at MWC 2014, and will be holding a press event too.

Invitations have been sent out for February 25, day two of the event, but sadly it seems there are no major announcements planned. Apparently, CEO Dennis Woodside will be there to provide a few updates on the business, which will presumably center on new owners Lenovo. So far, Lenovo’s CEO has indicated the Motorola brand name will remain in use, but may alter slightly to Motorola by Lenovo on newly announced hardware. says Motorola has informed them the gathering will be for a business update only.

While we’re keen to hear more about the deal between the two companies, we were also hoping the event would be used to reveal a new device or two. While the Moto X and Moto G aren’t due for replacement any time soon, there has been talk of Motorola wanting to make an even cheaper smartphone, perhaps with a final price tag of $50. Woodside revealed his ambitions in a recent interview, but no further details on such a phone have been revealed since. There has also been speculation about a Motorola smartwatch, which may or may not be the same as the rumored Google project, and the prospect of new Droid-branded hardware was a possibility too.

Just because Motorola probably won’t be launching any new products at MWC, doesn’t mean the meeting won’t be interesting. We’ll bring you all the news on the day.

The Fitbit Charge 6 is a fitness tracker and smartwatch hybrid

Fitbit has finally embraced what it means to be owned by Google with the Fitbit Charge 6. Not only is the Charge 6 an impressive-looking fitness tracker with a more accurate heart rate tracker, but it's also the first Fitbit device to really lean on the vast data resources offered by its parent company, Google. These additions have moved the Charge 6 toward becoming more of a smartwatch, thinning the barriers between the two device types.

Fitbit was purchased by Google in January 2021, but outside of Fitbit's tech being front and center in the fitness section of the Google Pixel Watch, it hasn't meant too much change for the fitness tracker brand. That ends with today.
