Telstra source calls Motorola X Phone (or Key Lime Pie) a "game-changer"

0. phoneArena posted on 13 Feb 2013, 08:59

This is one of those rumors that we are extra wary about, because the information in it is so vague that it sounds less like a rumor and more like a marketing leak. We're all eager to hear more about the Motorola X Phone, but if you're looking for hard information, that's not what we have here. This morning we have a report that a source inside Telstra, an Australian telecom/media company, says that the Motorola X Phone (or perhaps Key Lime Pie) is a "game-changer"...

I'm bot entirely convinced on what Motorola's offering until they change their attitude about updating phones.

Already happened. The only one of Motorola's current offerings not already on Jelly Bean is the Photon Q. The update has also been promised for the original Razr and Maxx. The updates have also come fast after ICS.

Promised and delivering are two different things. They've promised to update phones before only for them to turn around and change their mind.

They only turned around and changed their minds once. In fact, their track record previous to the Tegra 2 was to do about faces and update phones they had previously decided wouldn't be updated.

Right now for 2012 phones they're 4 for 6 in updating to Jelly Bean.

Yup that's why Apple never promises anything to be safe.

The Razr M, Razr (Maxx) HD, and Atrix HD are all on Jelly Bean, with the original Razr (Maxx) waiting to be rolled out within the next month.

And didn't all of those Jelly Bean updates come out in December, just 3 months after release (not including the Atrix HD)?

So, they updated 4 devices in the same month. Yup, they sure have a bad attitude about updating... Shame shame.

I think Goggle is going too fast with the upgrade. The phone manufacturers are still working on their Jellybean upgrades and the low-end is still yet to taste ICS. Fragmentation issues worsen with this..

I'm more curious about the KLP.
Something tells me Google is baking up one delicious, amazing OS

I'm a WP8 user (Lumia 920) and I don't get your comment. Android has nothing to Worry about seeing their market share. It's like a pitbull vs a Chihuahua. I really want WP8 to keep gaining market share but I know the reality is that it would take years to catch Android.

Price will determine if this is a real "game-changer" for me.

It's most likely gonna be in the $200-$300, on-contract, range...and I would gladly pay $300. My guess on main specs = 4.8"-5" 1080p screen, 460ppi, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage (with an avail MicroSD slot), Key Lime Pie, HDMI-out, kevlar backing and reinforced metal body with nano-coating,13MP rear camera/2MP front cam, 3500mAh battery.

You all can stop drooling now :o)

Google's involvement and you can forget about sdcard. They just don't like the idea

99% of Androids have MicroSD card slots. People still want them (I sure do). I hope Google doesn't nix them o.O

Google has essentially already killed SD in Nexus devices, so I wouldn't expect to see it in the X Phone. SD cards are good for some users, but they cause issues with widgets and other things that need to load on boot, so Google wants to phase them out.

This. Gmracer1, Google already said there will be no SD card on Nexus devices, don't even think about it.

This is not a nexus device just a phone that is getting key lime first or maybe not. All the nexus devices could get key lime before launch. Pluse the x is suposed to have a light versiom of moto blur acording to rumers. Giving that its cheaper to produce a 16 gb phone with a sd card I would not count it out. It will probably be based off of yhe razer line in production so it might use the same mother board or whatever you call it with better hard ware so having a sd card in ther might happen. I give it a 50 50 chance of it not only having one but 50 50 cgance of being called a nexus device with og android with no moto blur. I dont care either way except for the updat timline because moto blure is mostly just widgets on stock android and not a memmory and battery hog touchwiz and sence is

It won't carry the Nexus name, because Moto is a "separate" company, and Nexus is Google's brand, but Google still has control over what is coming. That would likely mean no SD slot, but it will have NFC, and I wouldn't be surprised if it worked with the Wireless Charging Orb.

Makes sense. Hopefully the X Phone will have, at least, 32GB storage!

32GB would be a given (at least I would think). If a phone like the HTC One X+ can have 64GB of storage for $200 on-contract, I would assume that the X phone could have at least 32GB for the $200-$300 on-contract price.

This is true to some extent.... I used to have issues on my Atrix with apps installed on SD, but the implementation on the Galaxy S3 I had and my current Sony Xperia Acro S, is that the microSD card is used for multimedia purposes (pictures, music, videos, and documents..) but not apps... those are installed in the internal memory with option to place them on the media partition of the (same) memory.

This solution bothers many people who cant (without help of third party apps or rooting etc) install apps on the external SD card... BUT at least this is a helpful way to keep tons of music and movies on the phone.

It is still better than no microSD at all... I wish Google would implement it this way... still forcing apps in the internal memory, but letting people place music and movies which are the heavy weighters on the external side.

I've not seen Google handle SD storage correctly yet, so as long as they at least offer 32GB on board, doesn't bother me.
