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.

Really hope this turns out to be something good. Unless you like the heavily mangled versions of Android that HTC and Sony offer, Samsung and the Nexuses are the only real choice (I don't consider LG and Motorola an option, after my Optimus 2X took 16 months to receive a promised upgrade and the 4X launched with an already obsolete version, or after Motorola's "raw deal"). Time for some more options?
