Motorola trademarks "Moto G", let the speculation begin!

Motorola trademarks
Between the Nokia and the Apple announcements today, we've had enough facts. We need to dive into some more blind speculation, because that's where things are really interesting. For that, we're going to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, because the infamous USPTO granted a new trademark today. Motorola now owns the trademark on "Moto G".

Of course, we have absolutely no idea to what that name may refer, but with the Moto X on store shelves, it seems likely to assume that the trademark has something to do with mobile devices. The early speculation is that Moto G is either going to be used on a smartphone or accessory (that's the basic idea that

just about anyone could come up with.) The guys over at Phandroid think that the G may refer to Google, which could point to a Google Edition Moto X device, but we don't really like that idea because a Google Edition of the Moto X would be pointless because it would remove the most interesting things about the device. 

However, the fellows over at Droid Life think it may be connected to a device that a Verizon rep said was coming, and that would almost certainly negate the idea of it being a Google Edition Moto X. The other option is that it could be something completely different. We have heard that there is a new Motorola tablet in the works, but it is still very early in development. Or, Moto G could just be something to put on file and never actually use. 

Eventually, we'll learn the truth.

Now now the iphone isn't golden its "champagne."

Gold is to mainstream for Apple.

G either stands for Gold or Google. If it even means anything.

What does the "X" stand for for Moto X? What does DVD stand for (hint: it doesn't actually mean anything, though Digital Video Disc does fit as well as Digital Versitle Disc...)

However, according to Jim Taylor, a prominent industry figure, the forum never universally accepted this name and a 1999 report decreed that DVD was "simply three letters" and stood for "nothing".
- DVD FAQ. DVD Demystified. 2006-09-12.

So, in all reality, it doesn't need to mean anything.

x would be cross platform and G would mean gear there watch gear. also if you think that dvd was fun look up blu-ray and hi def that fighter sony won after the loss to vhs they had to win this time.

I'd say this will be for the Supposed DVX. With that device we know it wants to push the real google android experience to the mass market. DVX is doesn't sound like a final product name. MOTO G makes more sense

I'm going with a lower-end Moto X. X is pretty well established in the industry as the larger or more advanced model (Droid X, One X, etc.)

Maybe it's the rumored Moto Tablet that I am dying to see!

Four options on the table:

1. The production name for the Moto DVX (20% confidence)
2. The Nova, a Phablet (40%)
3. A new tablet from Moto (10%)
4. A smart watch Aka Gem (30%)

Holy god people. Cmon stop with these "google" , "gold" crap. Remember Moto's CEO said that there will be another version for europe and asia. Maybe "G" stands for "Global". If there is a global variant of Moto X aka Moto G i will hold my money for that. I really want to see that smartphone comming to Europe
