Last month we informed you that the X Phone’s release date was pushed back, and just last week we showed you leaked photos of a supposed prototype of the device, but today we have more news on the phone. According to Chinese technology analyst Sun Chang Xu, Google as given up on development of the X Phone. Per Xu, Google has returned the project to Motorola for further development, citing a lack of innovation and technology in the device.
Now if this is true, this does not signify the end of the X Phone. The X Phone seems to be a significant project for Google, and what seems likely is that Google was not satisfied with the prototype of their future flagship phone, so they sent it back to Motorola for some more work.
This is all according to an analyst, but when that analyst has 18 years of experience in the electronics industry in China, and nearly a million followers on Weibo (China’s version of Twitter), there could definitely be some truth to this. Stay tuned to Talk Android as we learn more information.
