Motorola launches new Moto G with big screen at Rs 12,999

first_imgMotorola on Friday launched an updated version of the Moto G in India. The phone will be available exclusively on Flipkart from today at a price of Rs 12,999.The price is for the 16GB version. Motorola has both the 16GB and 8GB versions of the new Moto G but in India, it is only selling the 16GB version for now.The new device doesn’t seem all that different from the earlier Moto G phone. But it has been given updates in a few crucial areas like screen and camera.The new device has a 5-inch screen with 720P resolution. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor running at 1.2 GHz and 1GB RAM. The new Moto G runs on Android 4.4 and uses stock user interface. Motorola has promised to update the operating system to Android L when it becomes available. One area where the new Moto G is likely to be radically different compared to the earlier Moto G is its camera. The earlier one was criticised for having a poor camera. The new one sports a 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-megapixel camera on the front. Unlike the earlier version, the new Moto G has a slot for microSD card. This means you can add more internal storage if you require it.Another area where the Moto G has been improved is the audio performance. The new Moto G has stereo speakers, positioned on the top and bottom of the screen.When Motorola launched Moto G in India in February, it helped the company mark a strong entry into the country. In next five months, Motorola sold 1 million Moto phones. But much of this was because competition was poor. This time the competition is strong. Devices like Asus ZenFone 5 and Xolo 8X-1000 are fine devices and will challenge the new Moto G in the market.advertisementlast_img read more

Stephen Curry Drives Three for Three Challenge For Nothing But Nets

first_imgGolden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will once again lead his Three for Three Challenge for the 2014-15 season by donating three life-saving bednets to the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign for every three-pointer he makes this season.The Warriors have also announced that the team will match Curry’s donation throughout the 2014-15 season up to $5,000.During his first two seasons running the challenge (2012-13 & 2013-14), Curry donated 1,599 bednets to help thousands of families avoid malaria infection. During the 2012-13 season, Curry established a new NBA single-season three-point record with 272 three-pointers made and donated 816 bednets, and last season (2013-14), Curry recorded 261 three-pointers, providing 783 bednets to families.“I am honored to support the Nothing But Nets campaign for the third season in a row to continue to help raise awareness and provide bednets to protect families from malaria,” said Curry. “This has been an issue close to my heart since my days at Davidson, and I am grateful that the Warriors organization is helping me once again this season to give to such an important cause.”Since his time as a college star at Davidson when his college roommate, Bryant Barr, educated him and encouraged him to get involved in the cause, Curry has been a committed champion of the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign, which works with the UN and other partners to distribute insecticide-treated mosquito nets to protect families across sub-Saharan Africa from malaria. Every 60 seconds, a child dies from malaria. Malaria kills more than 600,000 people worldwide every year, most of them children under five. Bednets provide a simple, cost-effective solution. It only costs $10 to purchase and deliver a bednet, and provide education on its proper use. Since 2006, Nothing But Nets has delivered millions of life-saving bednets to protect families in need thanks to the generous contributions from its partners, champions, and supporters.“Last year, Stephen traveled with us to Tanzania and saw first-hand how malaria can devastate families,” said Chris Helfrich, Director of the Nothing But Nets campaign. “We are so grateful that he and the Golden State Warriors have inspired thousands of fans to get involved in the fight to defeat malaria.”Fans can get involved to help Curry and the Golden State Warriors in the fight against malaria.
