According to recent report from Wall Street Journal, it appears that Google and Motorola is working on Phone X and Tablet X. The devices are said to be separate from the Droid line of products, which leads us to believe they could be sold under the Nexus brand.
Dennis Woodside, a former Google top sales executive who is now Motorola’s chief executive told WSj that, “investing in a team and a technology that will do something quite different than the current approaches.” He further added that Motorola has “fallen under hard times,” it “now has the support of a shareholder in Google that has resources to do big things.” He added that only one billion of the world’s seven billion people use smartphones, calling that “an incredible opportunity.”
A person familiar with the plans said Motorola plans to enhance the X Phone with its recent acquisition of Viewdle, an imaging and gesture-recognition software developer. This person said obstacles are a “normal” part of the research-and-development process. Despite the challenges, the new handset is due out sometime next year.
It’s worth noting that the Google-Motorola acquisition was completed seven months ago, and that the typical phone takes about 18 months to develop. Whatever Google is planning for the Phone X, it’s likely still in an early stage.
