Motorola: No July 11th event was ever planned
The July 11th rumor started with a picture from the full-page ad that Motorola ran for the Moto X. The picture showed two people jumping into water with their bodies shaped like the roman numerals X and I which equals 11. We also imagine that the image could be Nexus related since the Nexus logo uses an X. It could have to do with the Motorola Moto X, not hard to believe considering the X in the device's name. Or, it could be nothing, just a strange coincidence and we're all looking too much into it.
But blogger Leo Laporte had said that Motorola was holding a private event for "50 or so press members." That too has been shot down. What is happening is a little get together for Motorola's Guy Kawaksaki and his friends. There will be no product announcement coming this week from Motorola. But considering the number of leaks we've seen about Motorola just in the last few days, some product announcements are sure to taking place soon.

They never said anything about an event. That was all rumor and speculation.
PA you'd think after the whole fiasco with the Sony Nexus rumors you'd learn never to put so much credibility in rumors.

Now with that finally over, next we'll hear the Moto X and the XI numeral meaning a November announcement/release!
One thing I really don't like about PA is that they don't always make it evident that it is a rumor in the title. 'The Moto X will have X' when we don't know a darn thing for sure. Even if they do use words like 'may' and 'suggests' the whole article is written as if everything is set in stone.
It's a habit very unbecoming of a news writer...

So Moto what is the point of that ad? Moto's Mind: "Hey look people are actually interested in us for the first time in years, lets run a ad, get their hopes up with leaks and than say No man whats wrong with you people we don't have anything new.. go away people".

Of course they shouldn't hold an event that day, they'll get overshadowed by Nokia's Zoom event in NYC!

Very well said! I genuinely believe that if ever they decided to hold an event at the same day the EOS will be unveiled, Nokia, undoubtedly, will eclipse them.. Hahahaha..
