Motorola X Phone launch pushed back until August

We have been talking about Google's Motorola's Googlerola's upcoming X Phone since December, and there is news this morning that could mean we will be speculating about the new flagship all the way into August.




The X Phone has long been rumored to be the most advanced Android phone ever, and will be the first device running Google's next-gen Android 5.0 platform, dubbed Key Lime Pie. Rumors today are pointing to the X Phone being delayed until August, instead of the May, June or July time frame, as previously reported.


There is no reason given for the speculated delay, but it could have something to do with Google not being impressed with early designs, or that Android 5.0 is just not going to be ready in time. I think it could have something to do with the recent releases from Samsung and HTC, and Google / Motorola realizing that they really have to step their game up if they wish remain a big time player.
