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.

So far I'm agnostic

Excuse my ignorance, but what is "breakability"? Is this the first honest admission from a manufacturer that most smartphones these days are built like junk and made to break? ;) But seriously, I don't get that term.

Apart from that, I want to know if this thing has a removable battery. If so, I might be interested. But if not, no chance.

And please, Google, Moto, somebody, keep making QWERTY sliding keyboard Android devices with a removable battery.

"Focusing on breakability" could mean either dev-friendly unlocked/unlockable phones or more QA on the hardware.
