    The Nokia Normandy that recently changed its name to Nokia X has had its specs tentatively leaked while some benchmark results try to both confirm and size them up. According to some, the phone will never see the light of day as an Android (forked though) powered Nokia, while others believe February 25 or March 25 should be the date of the unveiling. Whatever the case, we're seeing some more images of the phone in real life. Please keep in mind that these are most probably images of a prototype and that the color is either a red one (with a camera that has poor white balance), or one ...

    Tuesday, 25th, as it appears on the home screen of the leaked Nokia Normandy, is the date on which the phone will hopefully be unveiled. Whether that's February or March is yet unknown, as both months seem to have matching dates and days. We've just recently learned that the phone, codenamed Normandy, will likely be unveiled as the Nokia X, and now we're seeing it alleged specs being leaked. In order to run its rumored "forked" Android version the Nokia X will rely on its dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, and a suspiciously low amount of RAM: 512MB. The screen is nothing to ...

    Nokia has started sending out official press invites for a Barcelona event, and the speculation can now officially begin. Some believe that the Nokia Lumia 1520 Mini (aka 1520V) will be there, alongside the Nokia X, and maybe some others. But what exactly is the Nokia X? According to @evleaks, it's none other than the Normandy. This certain Normandy is expected to be the first official Android-powered Nokia device, running a "forked" version of Google's operating system. It's latest alleged screenshots showed off part of the interface, and a date of 25th is featured on the Calendar, which ...

    There's no denying that Motorola and Google have nailed a unique product with the Moto X. It's not only one of the few devices in the market to have internals that are capable of being permanently listening to your commands via voice, but it's also the only smartphone in the world that will allow you to chose the color and trim that you want, if you're on AT&T that is. Still, we've all been curious to see just how well the market has accepted this new concept and idea of how a smartphone should be sold, since innovation is never a clear sign of user adoption. As it turns out, it seems ...

    The mysterious Motorola Moto X is coming this summer but some reports talk about August 1, others try to find different dates. It's coming, nonetheless. If this recent report turns out to be true, the phone pictured above might be the Moto X. Until then, it's just the Motorola XT1056. The source of the image believes this is the Moto X though, and the phone pictured, X or not, is being tested on Sprint's 4G network. The screen, according to the report, is roughly 4.5-4.6-inches in diagonal, which might be close to the rumored 4.7-inch display. There are 16GB of internal storage, a ...

    Last week, Motorola announced its upcoming flagship Android, the Moto X. We'd been following rumors of an "X phone" for months, so it was fantastic to finally get some official comments out of the company. Problem was, we didn't really get anything juicy when it comes to phone hardware, software, or launch details, and the only thing Motorola seemed interested in talking about was how the Moto X would be made in the United States. Right away, that started setting off all sorts of alarm bells in my head. Where have I heard a story like this before? One that very much did not have a happy ...

    The Motorola Moto X, or the "X Phone", as rumors were referring to it, is coming this summer. First, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside brought the news at the D11 conference. Shortly after, the company has published a teaser, in the form of a press release. The phone's official name is Moto X. Motorola is specifically calling out the fact that "every Moto X sold in the USA will be assembled in Fort Worth, Texas, making it the first smartphone ever assembled domestically." That, together with the "available this summer", are about the only details contained in the press release. Still, it ...

    Earlier this month, we finally started to see all the rumors surrounding Motorola's X phone come together to take physical form, upon the discovery of imagery of an "XFON" apparently getting ready for AT&T. Then we saw what appeared to be the same handset hit the FCC as Motorola model XT1058, again showing support for AT&T's network. Since then, there have been signs that the XFON might also be in the works for other carriers, like a CDMA version arriving as model XT1060. Today, we've got yet another XFON contender to look at, with a Motorola model XT1056 for Sprint making its own ...

    For the past few months, Motorola's X phone has been the thing of rumors and speculation, but right at the start of May we finally started tying some physical evidence to the talk, upon the discovery of some photos that just might reveal the X phone in the flesh. Today we get what could be a new look at the hardware thanks to the FCC, as well as get to look at some possible X phone benchmarks. The FCC just published the paperwork for Motorola's model XT1058. That line rendering of it up above sure does tend to match the imagery we've seen of the X phone, from the camera and flash ...

    A little earlier today, a rumor about the Motorola X phone started popping up on various smartphone sites. We love a good rumor so we looked in to where this one was coming from, and once we heard the details of it, couldn't help but be overwhelmed by a sense of déjà vu; isn't this old news? The rumor in question comes from a Chinese analyst who claims that Google has lost interest in the X phone and subsequently returned the model to Motorola, in the hopes that more development time can improve its prospects. That sounds almost identical to something we heard several weeks back. In ...

    Sometimes, I worry we're getting too cynical when it comes to smartphones. Just look at the Samsung Galaxy S 4, a powerful, popular, feature-packed Android that's sure to set sales records. Despite all the glitz, we ultimately found the heavily-hyped handset to be just a little lacking. Maybe more than any particular area where it came up short, the whole thing just seemed somewhat uninspired. Right now, I'm finding those same sort of feelings beginning to influence my opinion of the so-called Motorola X phone – a smartphone that's yet to even be officially confirmed, let alone launch. ...
