Google’s CFO, Patrick Pichette, openly admitted that Motorola’s phones have not provided a “wow” factor for consumers. Pichette stated that Google has inherited a pipeline of insignificant devices.
“Motorola has a great set of products, but they’re not really like ‘wow’ by Google standards. Dennis Woodside and his team have inherited 18 months of pipeline that we have to drain right now.” -Patrick Pichette
Pichette was speaking on behalf of the Droid RAZR M and Droid RAZR MAXX HD, two well reviewed devices. In regards to Pichette’s statement, this gives us high hopes for the rumored Motorola X phone, in that Google will not allow an unimpressive device into the Nexus family.
