Will the Google X Phone Be Shatter-Proof?
Google reported its quarterly earnings yesterday, and although the company's Motorola division posted a big loss, executives pointed out that the hardware maker had a 12- to 18-month product pipeline already in place when Google acquired it in 2011. That roadmap is now nearing its end, and attention is turning to what comes after — specifically, the rumored Google X phone.
Rumors of the Google X phone began last fall when the Wall Street Journal ran a piece declaring its existence, citing "people familiar with the matter." The Google X phone is said to be the most advanced Android hardware the company could possibly make, which will "stand apart" from all other phones on the market. A Google X tablet is supposedly also in the works.
