In a bid to take the Android smartphone marketplace into its own hands, Motorola (now owned by Google) is readying an “X Phone” (as dug up by the WSJ), to launch next year. Everything is on the table here: this device is not set to replace the Nexus or Droid lines, but rather to stand on its own, taking on and beating the famous Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone lines. After the “X Phone” is complete however, an “X Tablet” is planned for release sometime after.
Desired technologies include a high-quality camera, superior photo software, a very high-end processor, as well as bendable screens and even ceramics designed to make the device durable. With parts like those, this is a phone that requires not only a lot of work, but thought as well. Problem is, even the “X Phone” has been in development, the project may be scrapped and turned over to another device — or it may be awaiting the finishing touches. At this point, we’ll have to wait and see.
