Motorola debuted the Moto X4 in August 2017, marking a fourth generation model in the Moto X family. The Moto X4 has now appeared in a leaked render showing it to be an Android One model. As it happens, the 2017 Moto X4 is different to earlier Moto X models: for 2017, Motorola seem to have simply made a cut-down version of their Moto Z flagship. Older Moto X models, especially the first generation, were designed to be more than the sum of their specification.
Samsung have announced a new 2017 variant of an existing Android tablet family, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017). This is an entry level Android tablet currently only announced for the Vietnam market. It’s likely to be released elsewhere around the world, but Samsung haven’t yet said when this might happen. The tablet is available in Black and Gold colours and is priced at an equivalent of around £180 in the UK or $240 in the USA for the LTE-equipped model.
The BlackBerry PRIV was the first BlackBerry device based on the Android platform, currently running BlackBerry software based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Unfortunately, the PRIV is not set to receive Android 7.0 Nougat. This was confirmed in an interview with the CrackBerry website by BlackBerry Mobility Solutions’ General Manager, Alex Thurber. This is disappointing: when BlackBerry released the PRIV, they also promised software support including Google’s security patches, and have delivered.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
