PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Earlier today, Motorola has announced that it is indeed working on an 'X' phone - the first true Google-led Motorola phone. It'll focus on breakability and battery life, and will be designed and manufactured in the United States - in a former Nokia factory, no less. It'll be released in the summer.

Good news! Although I never really liked stock android. Offtopic: I hate that verge website, it takes something like 3-4 seconds for page to show up. Just how much crap have they got on their page..

It's not that I love stock Android, but that most of the OEM modifications introduce little incompatibilities all over the place. I'd rather have stock than the crap OEMs do.

Jesus, I remember when pages took upwards of 30 to 40 seconds to load on a 14.4 dial-up connection, and that was with hardly any Javascript involved. Let's get some perspective here.

The perspective is that the connection is 1000x faster than it was but page loading is only 10x faster. That sucks.

And 100 years ago people had to use horses and it took very long to travel. There is no excuse to have slow website at this age of the internet.
It makes company and website look unprofessional.

About OEM, I haven't really noticed many incompatibilities. I have Samsung Galaxy S3 with touchwiz on top of Android and so far liking it. Also, I have Asus TF101 with stock firmware and also didn't notice any problems except for small lag when I type into web browsers using hardare keyboard.

The motorcycle I ride today has about double the horsepower compared to the one I rode 10 years ago. Does that mean I should double my body weight to compensate?

Bloat is bloat, whichever way you look at it, and the Verge is f*cking obese. It's also messy, like a badly curated webmag. I don't even bother visiting that site anymore and just rely on their (thankfully) more streamlined mobile app.

Mobile site is much nicer, even in a desktop browser. ;)
