Motorola to release its first phone since Google’s takeover
After discussing Motorola‘s plans to create BioStamps and Digital Health pills for user authentication just last week; it has been revealed that Motorola will be releasing Moto X, which is the first mobile phone by Motorola since Google bought it.
Moto X is said to change the way users “engage with how the devices are designed”. The device aims to predict what a user wants to do so that they do not waste time choosing it manually. Examples include automatically sensing a device is travelling at speed along a road and suggesting entering ‘car mode’ or making it faster to open the camera application.
Google hopes to sell the device at lower margins than their competition to offer consumers a less expensive device. While computers and televisions had seen dramatic price drops in recent years, smartphones had yet to see such falls.
The phone is likely to be launched later this year.
