Google "Engineers at Motorola are hard at work on a sophisticated handset, to be released next year, that parent Google hopes will provide more potent competition for devices like Apple's iPhone, said people familiar with the matter." Well, paint me red and call me a girl scout. This is more fascinating: "Motorola also ran into difficulties when it looked into using a bendable screen and materials such as ceramics that would allow the company to make the X Phone more stress resistant, use more colors and mold into different shapes, these people said." Bendable displays could be a huge turning point for mobile - and not because they allow new shapes. No, the killer 'feature' of bendable displays will be their resilience.

I hope Google can find a way to get its Nexus phones on multiple carriers with LTE, and to stop encouraging vendors to keep ruining the stock Android experience with their shitty bloatware. I'd even be happy with 'fake' Nexus devices, like the VErizon one, if they'd just keep the bootloader unlocked.

As an Android user, I'm tired of having only one phone a year to choose from, especially since the newest one was back-ordered for weeks, and is now sold out online. If they're only going to make one a year though, then it SHOULD be top of the line, and none of this max 16gb BS. Oh, and how about releasing some goddamn accessories when you launch new devices, Google? ;) I think the Nexus 7 pogo dock is just now starting to make the rounds.
