Motorola's Moto Maker is coming to Australia

Deliveries expected to take a week

Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola is beginning to bear fruits as it prepares to bring the Moto Maker program to Australia.

The Moto Maker program is currently available in the U.S. and allows customers to tailor the design of a Motorola smartphone. A customer could, for instance, nominate real wood for the back, colour the front in black and the trims in blue, and then have the smartphone engraved.

Customers could tailor their Motorola smartphone from Lenovo’s website or, if they begin to range Motorola smartphones, from carrier websites. Dedicated retail kiosks are another option being explored by Lenovo.

Customers who tailor their Motorola smartphone in the U.S. have it delivered after roughly four days.

Delivery times would be longer in Australia, a report in the Australian Financial Review reveals, as the factory fulfilling custom orders is located in the U.S.

Lenovo would fulfil Australian orders from a factory centralised in Asia in an effort to deliver orders in approximately seven days.

The expansion of the Moto Maker program follows the finalisation of Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola. Lenovo is the world’s largest PC manufacturer and its acquisition of Motorola improves its its manufacturing scalability, which is something that has hampered the adoption of Motorola products in Australia.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
