Motorola seeks "product manager" for the Motorola X
posted by Alan F. / Jan 31, 2013, 4:07 PM
That date might be a little optimistic as an ad on Linkedin showed that Motorola Mobility is looking for a Senior Director Product Management, X Phone. The job listing basically hints that the phone is in its earliest stages of development, which might mean the expected introduction of the phone at Google I/O in May also could be too optimistic. Let's hope Key Lime Pie doesn't spoil when left at room temperature.
The bar has been raised very high for a Google-Motorola collaboration, so if the phone takes a little bit longer to get to the marketplace, the results should be worth the wait. The ad, which was posted on Wednesday, was taken down after a few hours. Either the position was filled after the ad ran for only a brief period of time (which would be a great promotional ad for Linkedin), or someone posted something that should not have seen the light of day.

I see an oxymoron in this, how would Google sell a low priced X Phone for VZW's network in the play store? I don't see this making a lot of sense as anything on VZW carries their signature red and black logo and I can't see Google selling that in their Play Store at all. I don't think this will be a Droid phone at all and more like a lesser Nexus phone. It would make sense for this to launch on every carrier as a world phone and possibly being the first Google Initiative phone, carrying dual booth OS, Vanilla Android and OEM and the end user can choose which to boot. I at least hope this is the Google phone to start off another trend, carrier bloat freedom....Let Freedom Ring!
