Another day, another show of Verizon’s capriciousness: an update to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean began unceremoniously rolling out to Motorola Xoom LTE owners this morning.
What makes the Motorola X8 different as an SoC? And is it really as groundbreaking as Motorola makes it out to be?
Motorola is taking a chance here, and it’s actually exciting for once. Rather than try to shove a ton of hardware into a slim phone, they’ve gone and made a really good phone anyone would be happy to own.
With customization in play for the X Phone, it would be safe to assume Rogers will get exclusive rights to the device, but we’re not willing to make that assumption. This could be a special color backplate only available to the provider, or some kind of bundle.
Two new Motorola handsets have now surfaced by way of the FCC, the XT1030 and XT1080. Both handsets appear destined for Verizon. Could these be members of the Droid Ultra family?
More than anything, we’re wondering about this customization claim of theirs. What does that mean? How thorough could the program be? We can hope for a lot, but let’s not assume too much.
A Motorola X Phone sounds delightful, but not if it’s just going to be some easily dismissed device. That rumor, though — the one about customization — haunted me.
Though the FCC filing lists another model number with “X” in the designation, we are still a bit baffled by what is going on. If we’re to believe all these Motorola devices with that letter in the model number, then we have to ask why Dennis Woodside declared the X FON was a single device.
Another Motorola X-Phone variant, model XT1060 has pass through the FCC recently. The Model XT1060 version sports CDMA frequencies, LTE Band 4, Band 13 and GSM capabilities. We know that the XT1060 is the Verizon Wireless variant because radio frequencies 850 MHz and 1900 MHz just happen to be used by Verizon Wireless for CDMA capabilities, LTE Band 13 is be used by Verizon, and they have future plans for Band 4.
A new unannounced Motorola handset has been spotted at the FCC, the XT1056, which is now seen as a candidate for Sprint’s future Google X Phone. Read on to find out!
