Remember the Motorola Razr M? It was one of those Android phones I’d lusted after in vain, much more so after Motorola ceased its operations in India. Well, it looks like Motorola and Google have their first Google-influenced products in the pipeline, according to PCMag.
Consumers love what the Android OS can do for them, and they want to have the most recent releases faster. From a software and UI perspective, our strategy is to embrace Android and to make it the best expression of Android and Google in the market. It will be the unadulterated version of Android, and I feel really good about our embracing Android and being the best Android experience.
Jim Wicks, Motorola’s design chief, is hinting at Android phones from the company running stock Android, and subscribing to the principles of better is better, not bigger is better. This could sound as good news to people who have a dislike for bigger screened phones, say 4.7″+. Almost all the new flagships from the Android OEMs come either with a 4.7″ display, or a bigger one. HTC’s One, Samsung’s Galaxy S4, Sony’s Xperia Z etc etc etc.
Sounds very, very exciting indeed, but seeing Motorola doesn’t operate in India and other countries anymore, I’m a little saddened by it.
