When Motorola was asked about further details regarding the supposed project, a company spokesperson neither confirmed nor denied the existence of such development, but made it clear that Motorola shall remain committed to Android as its mobile platform of choice. On the other hand, it is rumored that Motorola may be already drawing the blueprints for an Android alternative in order to differentiate its products from the competition.
For now it is a bit too early to tell how devoted Motorola really is to the idea of building an operating system of its own. However, such a platform will need some serious work if it is going to compete against the well-established giants, which Android and iOS have become.
