    A couple weeks back, we heard a number of rumors about the Motorola X phone, including the compelling tidbit that the phone would be sold to-order with some degree of customizable hardware options. Now that same source is back with more details about this eagerly-awaited Android. First up, some new info on that customizability. The source now claims that "the options will not be as broad as was originally reported," though they could still include things as major as the design of the handset itself. That could involve materials used for the phone's exterior, even including exotic (and ...

    Does anyone have a solid grasp on what to expect from Motorola's X phone? If rumors have been accurate, we're just a couple months away from the phone's arrival, yet the proposed specs put forth thus far have been all over the park. Would it have a Tegra 4 chip and some very high-res cameras? What about a Snapdragon and some more conservative shooters? Would the hardware be customizable? While we wait for any kind of confirmation to support one of these theories, a new set of specs arrives, along with a possible render. That's the render up top, and we've got to say, it has us suspicious. ...

    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 ...

    When you go shopping for a car, are you likely to drive off with whatever happens to be on the lot that day, or are you a buyer who likes to customize? Maybe you know the engine you want, the tires you want, and have everything from color to trim to the options package worked-out to a T. The ability to have such control over your purchases is a luxury that's extended to other fields – you can have a computer put together with nearly any combination of specs you can dream up – yet it hasn't made its way to the world of smartphones... yet. Last week, a rumor suggested that Motorola might ...

    Ever had your eye on a smartphone but the specs weren't quite what you were looking for? Wished it had 2GB instead of 1GB of RAM, or 64GB instead of 32GB internal storage? A whole new slew of rumors about the Motorola X phone are out, and they suggest that Motorola could give customers more control than ever before with choosing just how the hardware of their new phones is configured. First off, the rumors claim that Motorola X is more of a brand than a single phone, and the first X model will be out in June as an octo-core handset. That gives credence to the idea that we might hear it ...

    Tomorrow's the big day. March 14. Now sure, if you're a math fan you're already excited about the opportunity to celebrate your favorite irrational constant, but this year in particular, the rest of us have reason to look forward to the fourteenth as well, with Samsung running its big Unpacked event. Short of out and saying it, the company's done pretty much everything it can to confirm that this will be the grand unveiling of the Galaxy S IV, the company's 2013 Android flagship. That's going to be great to hear, and we're itching for the opportunity to confirm the oh, so many details ...

    Yesterday, we heard some new rumors about Motorola's so-called X phone, including a possible new name and a number of hardware specs. The source behind all that news was sketchy, at best, so we were left without the ability to put an abundance of faith in the claims. Today we get to hear some new details on the X phone, but this time the specs aren't quite so ostentatious. Instead of that quite high-end-sounding 16/5-megapixel main/front camera combo, this new rumor claims that the main camera would top out at 10 megapixels, though it does leave the door open for a very-high-res ...

    Motorola's X phone has been the subject of many rumors so far, but we've heard quite little about the hardware itself; sure, there's been some general talk about materials or even a really high-end camera, but little in the way of hard specs. Today we get a breakdown of just what kind of silicon the phone could be packing, as well as learn a little more about its name. The image above is apparently not any sort of official render, but the name itself is interesting. Could the X phone be slated to arrive as the Motorola nXt? Will it remain the X and that "nXt" could be part of the ...

    After we first heard rumors about the Motorola X phone back in late December, it's been sounding less and less likely that this could be a big Nexus-style Google collaboration, and instead just another Motorola flagship. Back then, I took a few stabs at what I might want to see from a Motorola Nexus phone, but based on everything that's been said about the X phone since then, I think it might be high time for reconsidering what to expect from this handset. The latest news to affect my perceptions of the X phone was just a little bit bleak, when Google CFO and Senior VP Patrick Pichette ...

    We've spoken a couple times about the effect Google's acquisition of Motorola Mobility will have on the company's future smartphones, often in the context of the rumored Motorola X phone. The official word has been that when Google took control last year, Motorola already had a twelve to eighteen month pipeline of products that were already in development, meaning it wouldn't be until sometime later this year at the earliest before Google's influence would really start making an appreciable impact. Now Google's CFO is bringing up the subject again, and he's got some less than glowing ...

    Recent rumors of Motorola's X phone have focused on its hardware details, including some of that Kevlar the company's so fond of using and a big, Maxx-like battery. This week, we're back to talking about its software, which sources have been saying will be unlike anything else out there. According to reportedly reliable Motorola sources, "Google has been working on this device for a long time. It has software features and capabilities that are not available on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Apple iPhone. The software is really powerful and it pulls together Google services like no other ...

    The rumored Motorola X-Phone might or might not be unveiled at the upcoming Google I/O in May, depending on what reports you tend to believe, but its existence, at least the project, has been confirmed by a recent job posting. New reports try to shed some more light on the device, aside from what we've already heard: 5-inch, edge-to-edge, no-bezel, screen, and Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie as the OS of choice. The super-phone will allegedly be made out of Kevlar, at least the chassis, which will make it more durable. Motorola is no stranger to Kevlar (just take a look at recent offerings) and ...

    Rumors of Motorola's "X Phone" popped up last month, supposedly arriving as one of the company's 2013 flagship models. Even though Google is reportedly going to be heavily involved with the phone's release, to the extent that it might even be announced at Google I/O, there has been some reason to believe that this isn't a full-on collaboration, but could be something Motorola had started working on before Google even acquired the company. Regardless of those details of its development, it sure sounds like it could be one of the big phones to arrive this summer. While we've yet to see any ...

    Ever since we started hearing about Motorola's so-called "X Phone", we wondered if this would be the first big product to feature Google's influence as a result of its acquisition of Motorola Mobility last year. Such a project seems like an inevitability, but the question remained of just when Google might be ready; we had already heard in December that there simply hadn't been enough time since Google bought Motorola for it to get involved with anything new. Now we're finding ourselves reconsidering if the X phone could really be this first foray into Google/Motorola design, after ...
