Google acquired handset maker Motorola in May, 2012, for a whopping $12.5 billion and is now working on a new range of Motorola X phones and tablets. According to sources, the new development has hit quite a few hurdles in the manufacturing and supply-chain department, due to which some features on the planned device (like the bendable screen) could be remodeled.
Motorola will be working on 2 fronts – one that will be sold by its carrier partner Verizon Wireless and the other being the X phone. With the recent acquisition of Viewdle, an imaging and gesture-recognition software developer, Motorola plans to step-up and enhance the X phone. The new handset should be out sometime in 2013 hopefully, if the sources are to be believed.
Motorola is also expected to work on the X tablet post release of the new handset. The X phone and tablet plan to defy the competition with superior abilities, as compared to other phones and tablets available in the market. There has been a lot of buzz about the X phone and tablet in tech circles so far. While a lot of people do believe that it is going to be quite difficult for Motorola to come out with a handset and tablet with specifications that no other handset or tablet can offer, there are others who are hopeful and optimistic about the X phone and tablet being something special.
