Australian carrier Telstra says Motorola X Phone will be 'game changer'

While the details on Google and Motorola's X Phone are still few and far between, Australian wireless carrier Telstra seems to think that it will be a "game changer." An anonymous Motorola source said, "Google has been working on this device for a long time. It has software features and capabilities that are not available on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Apple iPhone. The software is really powerful and it pulls together Google services like no other manufacturer has done in the past."


Hugh Bradlow, CTO for Telstra, reportedly told senior staff that the X Phone will be a "real breakthrough, a game changer that will put pressure on Samsung and Apple."

The device will likely launch Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie and could possibly be unveiled at Google I/O in May. Other than a rumored 5-inch display, there really isn't much else known about the device, though it has been confirmed by a posting on LinkedIn. We certainly can't wait to see it and we imagine you can't either. What is one feature you'd like to see in the device?
