There has been a lot of speculation concerning the Motorola X Phone. Some have said that the device's name could refer to a series of products, not just one, Others have said that the handset could be the first Android device that would allow customization of the phone's hardware. Well now, Guy Kawasaki, a Motorola adviser on product design, social media, and UI has stirred the pot further and given hints that a customizable X Phone could be in the works.
Kawasaki has posted unto his Google+ page the following question: "Wouldn't it be great if you could personalize your phone like this?"
He also added a video where the car company Porsche discusses the ability to customize their cars for each individual buying one. This appears to be a teaser for his followers, and would indicate the Motorola may be planning something similar for their next big device. After all, Kawasaki is an adviser for the company for social media, so he could be using his Google+ account to show how the company can build up hype for new products and announcements. Kawasaki could also have helped design or put in input for the still mysterious device, so he may know exactly what we can expect from the device.
This small statement from Kawasaki could be the beginning of a new chapter for Motorola and Android. The phone will most likely make some sort of debut at Google I/O, which is set for May. Until then, readers should be on high alert for other such hints from Kawasaki and Motorola. After all, devices such as the Motorola X Phone rarely have a quiet release period.
