Five-inch Acer phone coming to AT&T with Full HD screen and mid-range specs

Acer smartphones are not too common in North America, as the company has told us, with several occasions — at trade shows — that it focuses mainly on Europe and Asia. However, that’s about to change: according to a recent @evleaks report, AT&T is preparing to add an Acer smartphone to its line-up. We don’t have a model name or number, nor any details regarding availability and pricing.

What we do know, however, that the five-inch Acer phone will have a Full HD resolution, and will utilize an eight-megapixel sensor for its main shooter on the back. According to the report, the rest of the internals will be in the mid-range category, so we’re expecting an attractive price, once AT&T will make the device official. We’re also guessing it will be an Android device, though not specified in the report.

Kabam partners with Lionsgate for “The Hunger Games” mobile game

kabam-650

Social and mobile game developer Kabam has announced its partnership with Lionsgate to create a mobile game based on the popular movie franchise The Hunger Games. The game will combine the role playing and card collection genres, as players assume the identity of District members, on a mission to liberate their District and rebuild Panem.

The upcoming title will be created in Kabam’s China studio, which was responsible for the hit title The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth. That game generated more than $ 100 million in revenue in its first year.

“Lionsgate has an unparalleled track record of developing and producing blockbuster movie franchises like The Hunger Games,” said Kabam COO Kent Wakeford. “Partnering with Lionsgate, Kabam will build a mobile game that’s as much fun to play as the movie is to watch.”

The next film in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, is set for release in theaters on November 21, 2014.

“We are so pleased to be working with Kabam to give the fans an experience like they have never had before,” added Danielle DePalma, Lionsgate’s EVP of Digital Media. “Being able to role-play with the mentors straight from the world of The Hunger Games will let fans feel as if they are in the middle of the action.”

This won’t be the first time mobile gamers have experienced the Hunger Games universe on their smartphones, as Reliance Games released its endless runner, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Panem Run, back in November 2013. Lionsgate has also released its own branded games, including Hunger Games: Girl on Fire.

Motorola to close factory in Fort Worth by year-end, a sad day for American manufacturing

moto_x_all_carriers-631x276 2

Motorola started as an American company and recently had a dream of bringing a product assembled in the USA to the masses when it opened its new facility last year, but it’s all coming to an end.

According to the Wall Street Journal, also confirmed by The Verge, Motorola will be closing its Fort Worth, Texas, factory by the end of 2014. The plant was created to be able to build custom Moto X’s designed though Moto Maker and has about 700 workers.

“What we found was that the North American market was exceptionally tough,” said Motorola President Rick Osterloh. “The decision potentially leaves hundreds of American workers out of a job.”

Motorola told The Verge that it will continue to offer the Moto Maker service, but it’s not clear as to how it will continue that work with manufacturing moving overseas, as the close proximity to customers ensured the fast shipping time, usually around eight days, not bad for a made-to-order smartphone built in the U.S.

At least that means we should all still get to order a custom Moto X+1 once it releases sometime this summer, but it will probably be the last we’ll see of a company trying to move these type of operations to the U.S. Who knows though.

The plan to close the factory shows that the Moto X wasn’t the success Motorola wanted. Hopefully with the successor, it can be a bigger hit if it has specs to match the other flagship devices. Specs aren’t everything, but with devices like the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4 (and now 5) and the LG G2, outselling the Moto X, specs and marketing must matter to most.
