Motorola Custom Order Comments Have Us Thinking About X Phone


One of the most interesting rumors to latch itself to Motorla’s so-called X phone has been the idea that the phone (or phones) might be sold with some level of customizable hardware, letting the customer choose just which specs the handset would have at the time of placing an order. While it’s only been rumored so far, it’s an idea that we’ve been hoping someone would take a chance on, so we’ve been curious to learn if it would pan out. We’re still a little short on evidence, but some recent comments have us thinking it could be a very real possibility.

Google hired Guy Kawasaki, formerly of Apple, just a couple weeks ago to act as an adviser for Motorola. Last night, Kawasaki posted on his Google+ page, “wouldn’t it be great if you could personalize your phone like this?”, linking to a video on Porsche’s customization program for car sales.

On its own, that might be wishful conjecture, but coming from a Motorola employee, and so closely following rumors of a custom X phone experience, and we can’t help but try to connect the dots.
