Where to buy all of Motorola's latest and greatest

55

With all of the new products coming from Motorola in the last couple of weeks, like the Moto 360 (2015), Moto X Pure Edition, and Moto X Play, it's getting tricky to figure out what's coming out when and where. Some of these have release dates, others only have windows, some are already out. Some may not even be coming to your country, and many aren't sold by service providers. We'll be reaching as far back as the spring so you can see how all the latest generations compare. With any luck, we'll straighten everything out for U.S., U.K., and Canadian shoppers.

The idea of a tablet playing a central role in a family's day-to-day life isn't exactly a new one. We've seen any number of manufacturers give this a shot, to varying degrees of success.

Let's take a quick look.

20

After it wrapped up officially unveiling the new Gear S2 smartwatch, Samsung once again gave us a tease for a new product — this time it's the "Galaxy View" tablet.
