Hands-on with the brand new Microsoft Band

48

Microsoft is in the wearable game and supporting Android. Here's a first look

Through the Microsoft Health app for Android – also for iOS, Mac and Windows – you can pair your Band with your favorite smartphone.

We haven't seen it yet, but our buddy, Daniel Rubino, over at Windows Central sure has, and he's unboxed it and given it a thorough hands-on.

80

As promised, the Motorola Droid Turbo is available today on Verizon. We've got the phone in-hand right now — be sure to check out our hands-on from the launch event — so expect more in due time. But the broad strokes to be aware of are a 5.2-inch display, massive 3,900 mAh battery with Motorola's Turbo Charger and wireless Qi charging, and all the Motorola bells and whistles we've come to love in its recent phones. Plus it's done in a form factor that's not huge (that's not to say it's not big — it is — or a bit heavy), plus a 21-megapixel camera.
