Motorola’s “just right” size devices reported to run stock Android

The first batch of devices to come from the Motorola and Google partnership will run stock Android and feature the right size of displays. Using the mindset that “better is better” and not “bigger is better”, these smartphones are reported to feature thin bezels not unlike the Motorola Razr M.

According to a recent PC Mag report, Motorola indicated that fans of stock Android and more practical sized devices will be pleased. Expected to arrive in the second half of the year these phones may ultimately fall under one line of branding; less Droid, Atrix, and Photon models to keep up with.

From a software and UI perspective, our strategy is to embrace Android and to make it the best expression of Android and Google in the market. It will be the unadulterated version of Android, and I feel really good about our embracing Android and being the best Android experience.

Perhaps more important than size, these new Motorola devices are expected to feature a stock version of Android with relatively little bloatware. Presumably the smartphones sold through Google’s direct channel will be void of any added software while the versions sold through carriers might feature branded apps.

In terms of software experience we are still anticipating the “wow” factor that provides users with more than what happens with today’s devices.

    I’ll second Heath’s comment. I still tote my Droid Pro around and would love a more powerful version running Jelly Bean.

    I hate it when companies dictate what’s “just right”. What if “what’s right” for me is over 5.3″? At least Samsung tries to please everybody with a wide range of screen sizes
