Google CFO says current Motorola phones lack the 'WOW' factor of other Android phones

Google CFO says current Motorola phone offerings are not as good as they could be

| Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones News | Posted: Mar 1, 2013 6:24 pm

Patrick Pichette, Google's CFO and Senior VP, has admitted that Motorola's current Android smartphone offerings are less than stellar and lack the "wow" factor of competing brands.

In an interview at the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference in New York City, Pichette said that when Google purchased Motorola's mobility division, it inherited an 18-month supply pipeline that it has been unable to alter. He said that consumers are still over five months away from seeing a truly Google inspired smartphone released from Motorola.

 

Rumors are circling that the first "Googlerola" phone we'll see will be dubbed the Motorola X Phone and will most likely include "game-changing" features that up the bar for all of the competition. As a two-generation Motorola Android phone owner, I really hope they come up with something mind blowing.
