Okay, she has 18 years of experience and a million followers, how often was she right? Sylvia Browne had a lot of experience and followers and she was never right.

There are pictures of the thing. Benchmarks. People have used it. And now Google backs down? It doesn't make sense. If Google doesn't have the resources to make a breakthrough phone, who else does?

Google isn't dumb. If they backed out its gotta be for a good reason.

Nope, still just a person making an assumption. It's no different than the crazy things they come up with for Apple, assumption upon assumption that hardly, if ever, comes true.

Just like they say, If it's too good to be true, it probably is" what a disappointment

I don't particularly care how "innovative" the phone is. Just stick to the basics: solid construction, good earpiece and mic, nice screen, smooth browsing, a really good camera, all day battery life and maybe some decent speakers. If Motorola can't deliver, they don't deserve consideration. I don't need fancy gestures or "spooky" intelligence, Google. I'll tell my phone what it should do, thank you.

Even thou, this is a little disheartening, I am still going take a look at the "X-Phone" when it come out. I have enjoyed my Razr for the last 1 1/2 years I had it. Plus, this is one person "guess" on what could happen. We will not know until Moto/Google makes the announcement. I also read, that a higher up at Moto made the comment that from here on out, they were sticking to stock Android.

Sounds more like Google said, "Okay Moto, this is your starting point. You can add to, but can't take away from. Ball's in your court now."

Damn, the supermarket's all out of oranges and I really really want an orange. Oh well, I'll just buy a grapefruit.
