    I will never understand why google doesn’t make Motorola manufactured Nexus phones. After all, they own the company.

      Contracts? They could’ve had a deal with LG in place before acquiring Motorola.

      It’s because devices are in a pipeline for many years. The Razr HD and HD MAXX were probably already being planned when Motorola was acquired. So even if you add a new “Google-esque” phone to the pipeline, it would have to begin development AFTER the Razr’s were out. That would put a release at maybe 1.5-2 years after the RAZR HD came out? And that was, what, last summer? Product development doesn’t happen overnight unfortunately.

      TL;DR: Motorola already had a development time line. A Moto Nexus phone would be added to the END of that time line or R&D funding would’ve been wasted. The earliest we could see a Moto phone is maybe January at best.

      What do you think the Google Edition phones are there for?

    Simply awesome. Now hurry up and release The X.

    Changing your logo from red to purple won’t make people buy your phones. Let’s hope the Moto X wows us more than this.

    I personally like this one over the one The Verge posted lol.

    It’s been years of broken promises. When is Motorola going to stop with their arrogance and start innovating? Too little too late. DOA.

      Arrogance? What the hell are you talking about?

      Well I thought it’s common knowledge that no company can compete if they’re not Apple or Samsung? …It was meant as a tongue and cheek comment since a lot of people like to put out the same garbage in this site for other companies trying to do business. But I stand corrected, Google can do whatever they want and put out products when they’re good and ready.

      Well supposedly with these phones. These will be the first phones developed under the new Google management pipeline hence all the hype.

    Why not use the nexus colors?

    Why purple?

    Must be a slow news day.

    this is wrong..just link to the Verge and see the real logo

  • JTon

    Just checked the verge… it’s the same one. Who changed?

  • DW

    I suppose the color is similar to the ‘play’ logo for Google play store. I don’t mind at all.

  • Conception

    When you see this new logo in white on black background (say on an actual phone) the white circle that surrounds the M is all broken up and spotty (think non-continuous dotted circle). Not sure that’s the kind of brand you want a communication company to portray…spotty reception/service/support?

    Actually, now that I think about it, it suits Motorola and Google just fine…
