With the Google / Motorola acquisition that took place oh-so-long ago, it’s been slow going for awhile. Many expected to see devices almost right out of the gate, but mum has been the only word thus far, aside from a few off-hand patents and rumors – definitely nothing concrete. However, now we’re hearing that a new Motorola Google phone is coming to Australia in July of this year, and it’s being hailed as a bit of a masterpiece.
According to sources as down-under telecom Telstra, CTO Hugh Bradlow is tipping employees that the new phone is a “real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple”. The device in question is currently being hailed as the Motorola X, and is supposed to be unveiled at the Google Developer Conference in July, which would sync up with the rumored release date. According to one insider, “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 manufacturer has done in the past.”
