In this Weeks Radio Show, We talk about the Apple Event 2016 with the Unveiling of the new collaborative iWorks, The Apple Watch Series 2 with GPS and the Series 1 with a lower price point. Although without GPS it’s now available for starting around 269. We also look at Apples Role in Connected Classrooms and why maybe this went in a different direction over the past decade. Apple commits to the ConnectED program which is directing Apple technology to the classroom. We couldn’t talk about the Apple Event and not cover iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, much of the focus is on the lack of a headphone port and not towards the fast processor or dual cameras with some nice features we will see with iOS 10, either way, we discuss this and more in this weeks show!
In todays segment, I featured the Moto Z Droid from Motorola/Lenovo with Service from Verizon. The Moto Z runs on Android Marshmallow and will eventually be updated for the upcoming Nougat platform.
What’s nice about the device is the ability to add to the Moto Z with snap on devices which connect via magnets embedded in the smartphone and devices. The latest offering for MotoMod is the Hassleblad True Zoom, It looks amazing!
We looked at the MotoMod Insta-Share Projector which can give you the ability to run a projector off your device.
The Moto Z is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor running at 2.2Ghz with 4GB of Memory. It is available in 32GB or 64GB Storage and of course upgradable with a microSD card.
The Moto Z also features a fingerprint sensor on the device which can be a bit confusing as I constantly was hitting it think it was a home button. This is understandable because my personal phone is an apple product. The Moto Z uses a USB Type C connector and doesn’t include a headphone port, Bluetooth it is or a provided Dongle type connector to the USB Type C Port.
The rear camera is 13MP with the ability to shoot 4k video and adjust is as you would a DSLR however I think most would just set it on auto. The Forward 5MP also features a flash for your selfies! Screen size is 5.5 and the device itself is incredible thin!
Check out more video at TechtalkRadio coming this week on the features and the MotoMods.
