Motorola CEO: Google gave financial support, but Moto X was "all Motorola"

Given the choices that Motorola has been making since it was purchased by Google, the general thinking has been that there is more of a collaboration happening between the two companies. But, CEO Dennis Woodside is sticking to the story that the two companies are separate. In fact, he went as far as to say that while Google gives Motorola financial support, the Moto X was "all Motorola"...

Good, software focus, about damn time. We have enough hardware power mascarade-ing as the make or break portion of a device. We need more companies to focus on differentiating with at least software excellence now.

If CEO Dennis Woodside reads tech blogs I hope he hears this I would have bought a Moto X I like the software a slim clean UI over the OS great way Google now integrates everything, but the hardware specs were very disappointing I keep my phone for 2 years and hardware needs to last that long when I buy a phone I want the latest and greatest to keep me covered for 2 more years XDA will keep me covered with software. Oh I got a Note 3- don't let carriers lock bootloaders either.

I love Motorola and Google, but its more than obvious that there are some Google thoughts forced into Motorola, like say
(a) removal of SD slot [BAD]
(b) Removal of BLUR [GOOD]
(c) Great integration of Google NOW [V.GOOD]
(d) Faster updates [BEST]
