Telstra source calls Motorola X Phone (or Key Lime Pie) a "game-changer"

0. phoneArena 13 Feb 2013, 08:59 posted on

This is one of those rumors that we are extra wary about, because the information in it is so vague that it sounds less like a rumor and more like a marketing leak. We're all eager to hear more about the Motorola X Phone, but if you're looking for hard information, that's not what we have here. This morning we have a report that a source inside Telstra, an Australian telecom/media company, says that the Motorola X Phone (or perhaps Key Lime Pie) is a "game-changer"...

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Price, of course, is important but if cheap is what you want there are plenty of second rate, budget friendly devices out there. Hell, the Moto X will too in time. What I want to see is a kick ass device that has EVERYTHING customers are wanting. I'm so tired of having to settle because this device lacks this that device lacks that. I want an awesome all around device and I am willing to pay for it. I use my phone more than any other device I can think of, for both work and play, so I don't worry about getting my money's worth!

we have great phones with pretty great battery life and some solid software with hardware to match. Right now I want to see the future smartphones focus more on the capabilities of the software and getting the most out of the hardware rather than adding so much more tech after tech after tech.

Pressure on both Samsung and Apple would always be ideal situation and major point that could be game changer is PRICE ...

Really? The Nexus 4 is the first phone I've had that can last all day with the way I use it. How long does your battery tend to last?

I'm sure the battery life will be good, it is a Moto after all. My Razr M last EASILY 3x as long as my Galaxy Nexus did (with upgraded 2100 mah battery)

And Razr battery is actually smaller 2000 mah if I'm not mistaken.

it's because of that smaller S4 that it uses with it's integrated LTE radios.

You are right, Motorola stuffs huge batteries into slim bodies the RAZR HD is 4,7" and has a 2500mah battery i should expect no less than that for the X Phone.

I don't want to feed this rumor with more fire, but maybe some of the Google glass features are integrated into the OS maybe we see a device that needs no navigation buttons on the front and is intuitive and easy to use (enough changes to justify the 5.0 tag)

Maybe they will have more and more stuff integrated (like a single message hub rumored since the message center on chrome OS) or some desktop mode (load the OS in tablet UI when connected to a TV) and who knows what speed improvement we could see along the road....

But looking at Google's change log history
3.x made tablets ui
4.x integrated both phone and tablet experiences

I could see some interesting changes (Google is already hinting gestures all over the OS with newest updates and I don't see why they should stop )

But this is just speculation as sometimes it could simply be marketing...

I like your idea of the Google Glass integration! Maybe the phone and glasses could sync!

I think the possibilities are endless we also need support for app backup on google drive with no need for root, that would be awesome

Ok, I'll play along:

Maybe its an update to Google Now? Or the Play Store gets overhauled? I like what you posted tho.

One thing I hate about rumors....when they turn out to be wrong....ppl base their opinions off the rumors.

I'm wondering if the Nexus 4 will get all the "features" this Motorola X will get after the Key lime pie update..

Any features in KLP will be in the Nexus 4 when it gets the update. The real question is whether the X Phone will be running stock Android or not.

I'm thinking it should if it will be announced at Google I/O. I know people would be very upset it if wasnt.

You are confusing Google with Apple, Apple is the one who "cuts features" from older devices so people end up buying new ones.

I think we the users will decide if its a game changer. If its something that has already been done, most of us wont think its a game changer. If its somethings that ...meh...most of us wont think its a game changer.

Even tho it wasnt the first phone to do it....the orig Atrix with Webtop and the laptop dock and the Samsung phone with that projector built in were game changers IMO. Too bad neither feature really took off.

The Nokia 920 with that amazing camera and software is a game changer IMO. I even think the Nokia before the 920 that had that great camera was a game changer.

Game changer? We shall see....

Left out the Dell Streak and Samsung Note. A real tablet/phone hybrid.

The Note was a proper phablet. The Streak was too far ahead of the curve. Android 2.x just couldn't be a phablet OS.

I agree. The Streak was just size. The Note was size and features.

Didn't the Streak also initially ship with 1.6? Dell fumbled badly with that one.
