Motorola obviously still lives and has to keep throwing phones, but at some point you should feel the hand of Google. In an interview by the chief designer, Jim Wicks, in PC Mag, we learned some interesting details of upcoming Motorola Phone.
Wicks confirmed that Motorola has a series of phones ready for end of the year, that count most striking feature using a “clean” version of Android, without customization, Nexus style. The new generation Motorola Phone is made by Google over a period of eight months of work.
Now we have spoken in the past that Google was not happy with what was found in Motorola, and major changes will come. Wicks defended his company’s position, arguing that the statements were taken out of context. What is not spoken at any time is the ability to configure phones, introduced by Guy Kawasaki.
Looking for the right size
The second interesting point of Motorola Phone is found in the size of the devices, Motorola and Google want to hit with the inches of the screen, and choose the correct dimensions, beyond the tendency to grow inches to levels uncomfortable for many.
You know, it’s rare that the manufacturer has gone from 4.7 inches, Google’s own Nexus 4 chose that size for reference for the other players on this story. Motorola believes it would be better to have on the market with something smaller. Not expressly mention a size, but we believe that the 4.5 inches is the correct value.
About technical specifications, it is clear that they have to have a model that meets expectations, but not going to go crazy with the race that other manufacturers are stuck. On operators will attempt to launch products more independent of them.
Eric Schmidt creating hype
The current chairman of Google, formerly CEO, Eric Schmidt, described the new phones as “phenomenal” in a speech at the event Dive Into Mobile that organizes AllThingsD. We do not understand what you mean with the tagline, but considers the new line of Motorola will “phone Plus”.
