At Google’s earnings announcement today, CEO Larry Page dropped a few very interesting hints about the upcoming slate of phones coming from Motorola. Page intimated that the new crop of phones from Motorola will impress:
“In today’s multi-screen world, the opportunities are endless. Think about your device. Battery life is a challenge for most people. You shouldn’t need to carry around a charger with you to make it through the day. If your kids spill their drink on your tablet, the screen shouldn’t die. And when you drop your phone, it shouldn’t shatter.
There’s a real potential to invent new and better experiences – ones that are much faster and more intuitive. Having just seen Motorola’s upcoming products myself, I’m really excited to see the potential there. in just under a year, they’ve accomplished a lot and have impressive velocity and execution.”
Google acquired Motorola last year, hoping to revitalize the struggling manufacturer. Under Google’s watchful eye, Motorola’s been cooking up a new batch of phones, and the rumor mill has been working overtime. Tales of Burly “X-phones“, just-right “Goldilocks Phones” and other predictions abound. Page’s statements certainly intrigue, but don’t provide the hard facts about the new Motorola line we’re all dying for.
We’ve already heard that the new offerings will feature stock (or near stock) versions of Android, which is great news. Page’s hints about tougher phones with increased battery life and ultra-durable screens only increase the curiosity about what’s coming down the pipeline from Motorola.
