Motorola’s X Phone has been rumored for a while now. But there has not been a whole lot of solid information tied with those rumors. Today Motorola posted a job listing to LinkedIn looking for a Senior Director of Product Management for the “X Phone”.

The job listing was up for a mere few hours before getting taken down. The listing revealed very little about the handset. Unfortunately, Motorola is not Microsoft who has a history of listing a bunch of details surrounding a secret project in a job listing.

Motorola’s listing did say the X Phone was in its early stages of development though. Other than that, the job listing mentioned a few generic things about qualifications and experience that was required. Rumors prior to this listing said that we could see more information on the X Phone during Google’s I/O event later this year.

The rumor mentioned that the X Phone would not be a Nexus device, which makes this all the more interesting. Despite the X Phone not being a Nexus handset, are you excited to see what Motorola will have to offer?

    I’m more excited for android 5.0 than the X phone

  • Excited, but disappointed that this could imply that this is further out than July.

  • If the X phone is priced like the nexus line I’m very incline to switch from HTC back to Motorola because at least I could make calls on my Motorola phones without it rebooting, unlike HTC.

    By “not a Nexus”, could this mean we finally get a Google device with an SD card reader?

    Do you ever see job postings like this for a specific product? I don’t recall seeing any, and think Moto is trolling to keep the rumour mill ticking over … as long as it leads to a good device at the end, I’m ok with it though ;)
