Larry Page sings Motorola's praises, reiterates need for more durable phones
posted by Michael H. / Apr 18, 2013, 5:53 PM
Motorola was a pretty big black mark on Google's earnings call, because the company hasn't released any new hardware in about six months. But, Page wants to start getting us more excited about what's on the way from Motorola, saying:
Page also reiterated the idea that phones should be more durable. Back in January, Page talked about how phones should not have screens that break, and that we would be seeing the changeover to flexible displays in the next "5 to 10 years". But today, Page talked about more issues including battery life and water damage, in addition to the troubles with displays cracking when you drop your phone.
It seems like Page is at least trying to imply that future Motorola phones will focus on durability. We've already heard that the X Phone will have a battery on par with the 3300 mAh found in the RAZR MAXX HD, and there have been rumors that it will also feature sapphire glass, which would greatly improve durability.

The X Phone definitely is the most anticipated phone this year. Please don't make us wait no more!

6 Months since a New Moto Phone has been released! I really hope Moto brings something New like big battery, great specs, and very little bezel with the best durability. Big Moto fan, still have and use my Xoom

I never had a problem with the general hardware, my formaer moto phones(droid 2, droid x, and droid 3) were durable but the battery was incredibly weak and the software itself was screwed up and i would end up replacing a moto phone every 4-6 months.
