27 February 2017 - Lenovo, through its Subsidiary, Motorola Mobility:
We’re changing the way people use their phones. Moto Mods are the #1 reason why consumers buy a Moto Z. And they’re ready for what’s next.
Amazon Alexa Meets Moto Z
Part of what makes our Moto Mods innovation so rewarding is the partners we work with — like Amazon. Later this year, you can purchase a Moto Mod with Amazon Alexa for your Moto Z.
With our Amazon Alexa Moto Mod, you can easily perform everyday tasks while on the go, like controlling your smart home, checking the news, requesting a ride from services like Uber, and more — using just your voice. For example, when you start your commute home, you can ask Alexa to adjust your home’s temperature so it’s comfortable when you get there. Or, you can add milk to your shopping list without ever picking up a pen.
This is just the beginning for Alexa and Motorola. Later this year, we’ll add Alexa integration into our phones — and you won’t have to unlock the phone first.
Growing the Moto Mod Ecosystem
In addition to our upcoming Alexa partnership, we’re adding the next addition to our Moto Mods ecosystem — the Moto Power Pack. This Moto Mod will instantly add 50% more battery to your phone, without adding bulk. It has a special efficiency mode, which automatically charges your phone to keep efficiency at its peak. The Moto Power Pack will be available starting in March for $49USD/€49.
We’ll also be launching additional power-focused Moto Mods including a wireless charging Moto Mod, a Turbo Power Moto Mod and a charging adaptor.
But we aren’t stopping there — the Gamepad Moto Mod, coming this summer, transforms your phone into a mobile gaming console by adding physical controls, an integrated battery, and more.
Our engineers have new innovations in the pipeline; we’re continuing to work with partners and developers to introduce new experiences and functionality in our lives. Stay tuned.
Amazon Alexa is currently available in the US, UK, Germany, and Austria.
