Save for the interesting, impressive Moto X by Motorola, this week was a little on the cool side. But don’t worry, we have just as many reviews as we always do. First up are not one, not two, but three Toshiba Android tablets. Speaking of slates, we also had the chance to throw around the Panasonic Tougpah FZ-G1 for review (and it lived to tell the tale). The Acer Aspire S7 also impressed with slim, stylish form factor, though the Aspire V7 didn’t get us quite as jazzed. On the smartphone front, yours truly took the HTC 8XT–Sprint’s first Windows Phone 8 device–for a spin. Finally, we got around to reviewing a slew of notetaking apps.
Say hello to the new Motorola. Actually, just say "OK, Google" to the Moto X to see what all the fuss is about. The company's first smartphone since being purchased by Google for $12.5 billion, the Moto X lets you dial contacts, get directions, see who won last night's game and more just by speaking to the handset. No unlocking required. This $199 "Assembled in the USA" phone is also the most customizable ever, with a website that lets users choose from a gaggle of color options. (It's for AT&T customers only at launch.) The Moto X's midrange specs definitely go against the flagship grain, but does the overall experience make up for it?
