Motorola's pipeline didn't "wow" says Google's CFO
our own kind of work is actually quite promising." There is speculation that the next Motorola flagship model to be released later this year, the Motorola X, will be the first smartphone built with the Motorola name using input from Google. The phone is rumored to run on Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and could be introduced at Google I/O in May. One rumor has Hugh Bradlow, Chief Technology Officer for Telstra, calling the device a "game-changer."
Additionally, Pichette added that talk of a feud between Google and Samsung is overblown. With Samsung taking a long look at releasing a Tizen powered smartphone sometime this year, there has been talk that the Korean based manufacturer is looking to put some space between it and Google to prove that it doesn't need to rely on the latter's open source OS. Samsung's two top handsets run on Android, the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Samsung GALAXY Note II.
