Ever since Google first purchased Motorola, the Android faithful have been waiting for this report. We've all been wondering when Google would finally jump in and make a device in-house, using its newly acquired hardware manufacturer, and it looks like the time is coming. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google and Motorola are working on a so-called "X Phone" and a tablet, both of which will be released next year...

Oh man.. I sense something great coming out.

I'm happy with Samsung, but definitely see this as worth waiting for, before deciding on my next phone

This sounds like a Nexus for the other 3 carriers. Honestly I got a little upset seeing that the Nexus 4 was going to be using HSPA, and many others probably were too. This is probably Google's way of getting everyone else their Nexus.

Sounds like it could be my next phone. Since I can't take the leap and jump ship from Verizon because of the quality of their network hopefully it will come with on contract pricing, which in the US is very important for a phone to be successful and Google will finally stand up to the carriers to create swift and bloat free updates.

I have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus running 4.2.1. I don't see why everyone complains about the Nexus on Verizon. Get over the fact that you don't get OTA updates right away. You can still get the newest software right away just not OTA.

I think Google had to do it. So if like Amazon, Samsung decides to fork their own version of Android, Google will have someone to count on.

Does this mean every andriod phone maker is in trouble?

P.S: I mean andriod is google's own operating system, they can choose if they want to release the next major update to the other manufacturers. If they have their own phone, I dont see any point in giving updates to your competitions

Lol. Android is open source. When developers can fork their own versions, why can't others update their versions. If google makes it propriety, which I doubt, I might say goodbye to it.
