With far less fanfare than Apple, Motorola releases its first smartphone, the new Moto X, since being taken over by Google. Motorola was one of the first producers of large-screen smartphones and, combining joint innovative powers and technologies, the Moto X may be a benchmark for Apple to aim at.
Prepare for Moto X, the first smartphone that (if not made in) is designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA, thus adding jobs to the USA economy.
With a 4.7″ screen and a 10 megapixel camera, it may seem to offer less specs than the popular Samsung Galaxy S4 but the Moto X is easier to hold, handle and style for your personal use.
For those with less than nimble fingers or lack of dexterity, Moto X can be controlled with your voice. With Touchless Control you can check the weather, get directions, or do just about anything without lifting a finger. Moto X doesn’t guess like other phones do. It knows.
Available for use with AT&T and Verizon Wireless, the Moto X offers many color choices to fit your lifestyle so you don’t need to be satisfied with what other companies offer.
Your Moto X is truly yours, because you design it. Through our online studio, Moto Maker, you choose the colors, and decide on the details: front, back, accents, memory, wallpapers, even add a name or a short message. When you’re done, Motorola assembles your Moto X right here in the USA and ships it to you for free in 4 days or less. Choose from more than 2,000 possible combinations, with more to come. Motorola promises to be constantly exploring new offerings, such as real wood backs, starting later in the year.
Outfitted with Android 2.2, a 4.7″ AMOLED screen, a 2 megapixel front camera for Skyping and 10 megapixel rear camera for stills and 1080p/30 video, the Moto X is ready to be your mobile wonder. Memory delivers 16 GB standard, and a 32 GB version available online. Google attacks Apple’s iCloud service by including 2 years 50GB storage free on Google Drive.
Due for release late August or early September, Moto X undoubtedly releases before Apple makes its holy announcement in the fourth quarter as a possible deal breaker. Apple is serious about capturing the iPhone market domain from all those Android lovers and Apple expects to make its case.
Also, Microsoft needs to clean its act with Windows 8 failures. Due to release a revision in the fourth quarter, Microsoft needs to stimulate their mobile systems and products. If they fail again this year, the channel between Android and Apple will widen and the better phone and tablet offerings may finally dominate.
Of course, where does that leave Blackberry?
Moto X brings USA thinking and living to the mobile industry. Will it work? Will it deliver what Americans seek in mobility? Is 2014 going to be the year when Moto X cuts into Samsung’s and Apple’s slices of the pie? What do you think?
Google Motorola Moto X may be worth considering and buying. So far, it’s the only phone offering a USA economy stimulus. Moto X is developed with USA thinking for those living and loving the USA. Is Moto X worth your loyalty?
