Tech Companies News Byte: Forget the New Nexus 7 ? Moto X is the Star of the Show

Wochit 1:14 mins

Google finally took the wraps off of its much rumored next-generation Nexus 7 tablet. But analysts suggest that Nexus 7 sales will miss sales estimates by a potentially wide margin, and the real star of the show where Google devices are concerned is the upcoming Moto X smartphone. Almost exactly a month ago, Microsoft launched Internet Explorer 11 as part of the Windows 8.1 preview and now, it is also launching a developer preview of IE11 for Windows 7. One area Microsoft has focused on with this release is speed, including a much-improved JavaScript engine and a stronger emphasis on GPU hardware acceleration. Initial orders of Google's brand new Chromecast wireless video-streaming dongle are already gone, though some users are still having luck getting one. The $35 dongle, which plugs into the HDMI port of televisions and lets users stream content from multiple device platforms, is now listed as "coming soon" with no option to order it from Google's online store.
