As rumors about the expected Motorola "X Phone" swirl around the Web, Google may have been hinting at some of the phone's features during its Tuesday earnings call.
While speaking about Motorola, which is still unprofitable, Google Chief Executive Larry Page listed some features he thinks smartphones should have. Many are interpreting his words as a listing of the features we'll see on the next Motorola phone.
"Battery life is a huge issue," Page said, according to The Verge. "You shouldn't have to worry about constantly recharging your phone. When you drop your phone, it shouldn't go splat. Everything should be a ton faster and easier. There's real potential to invent new and better experiences."
Google executives also mentioned that they inherited "12 to 18 months" worth of projects when they acquired Motorola in May 2012. That statement is being interpreted as a hint that we may start to see Google's own projects after the first anniversary of its acquisition.
