We're likely getting close to the release of the Motorola Moto X, which our source has consistently said would be released in July. Now, there's a new ad that has leaked out that looks to be the first ad for the Moto X. It is a full page ad that is obviously due to run tomorrow, and it's all about freedom in 'Merica!...

That's too much for mid to high end phone, plus $350 of price.

Eh, everyone's such a Debbie Downer today. I think it would be awesome if we could build phones the same way we can build PCs. Unnecessary power and extremely expensive: what's more American than that?

You're asking for a bit too much here, Troll, you can't expect every new phone that comes out to completely break the barrier on specs like you always do.

64 GB of storage is reasonable

4 GB of RAM is pretty far away

OMAP seems to be out of the game, the only A15 based processors they have are dual core, and Tegra 4 doesn't seem ready for consumer devices

For a 5" display to have 570 ppi you would need a 2560x1440 display (580 ppi), and that shouldn't be here until next year or the year after, way too soon for the Moto X launch.

Sapphire glass is still pretty expensive, so manufacturers probably wouldn't use it.

The SGX554MP4 is strictly for tablets. Way to power hungry for phones, even with Motorola's Maxx batteries. If they do use a next gen SoC that features PowerVR, I would think it would be from the Rogue series and be dual core.

I actually would like to believe that Motorola would raise their Maxx status. 3,300 mAh is still insane, but after 2 years I want them to make an advancement.

Good speakers and triple mics are reasonable

Not sure about the 100 Hz refresh rate

I would welcome the camera if Sony would be willing to sell it to Motorola.

The people are making an XI and XI is roman numerals for 11, so perhaps July 11th it will be out?

You my friend, are genius. That's very possible. But you never know , it could just be a picture of two people jumping in a lake.

It could either be that or it could just be them showing two people jumping into a lake and being different in how they are doing it.

Designed AND assembled in the U.S.A.

Definitely a jab at Apple.

or just a point of pride which it should be for an American Company.

Exactly. Can't they just rally the Americans together to celebrate?

Does it always have to be about Apple? Not every advertisement has to have a negative spin on it.

You know the iPhone and iDevices are designed in the US? They are only assembled elsewhere where labor is cheap and expendable.

Of course he knows Apple products are designed here. Thanks to their new corn-ball ads how could anyone NOT know that they're "Designed in California"? (A fake tear just rolled down my face just from thinking about those ads.)

That doesn't stop what Moto's doing from being a DEFINITE jab at Apple, given their recent aforementioned ad-campaign + the Fourth o' July coming up. Appealing to the American appeal to "made in the USA" is generally a pretty good move.

Just because something isn't made in America doesn't mean it isn't quality. A lot of luxurious things people enjoy aren't American made. Swiss watches aren't made in America. Royals Royce isn't made in America.

Most of our most "reliable" cars are not made in America, or at least based in America.

Motorola can take as many jabs as they want but they will soon see that being "made in America" is just a slogan than costs more to maintain than the limited benefit it provides.

Don't forget: now that Moto is a "Google Company" they can afford to sell these things at losses. Google doesn't strike me as a company too concerned about losing a few hundred million dollars if they can explore a newly formed market segment (i.e. "build-a-phone"). A lot more goes into this than merely the bottom line of the balance sheet.

Er, bottom line of the income statement I mean. Sorry, it's been a while since I've done any accounting.

They're only able to do that because they have a monopoly in the search and advertising market. They make billions off advertising, searching, and other related business models. If they were someone like Samsung, GE, or any business that has competition, they wouldn't be able to sustain that model of business for very long.

Let's not forget they have poor distribution since they can not seem to fulfill orders in a timely manner as seen with the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4.

To your first paragraph: so?

To your second one: these distribution methods are also products of ASUS and LG's handling of the situation, not just Google's. I'm not saying the Moto X will be any different, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.
