Moto X: The Next Big Thing from Motorola and Google

Motorola was once a mobile loved by the Americans not just because of its durability and performance but also because it filled them with pride for being an all American product. But the company slowly fell behind in the smartphone race as not just Apple but other players like Samsung, LG, Sony, HTC, etc surging ahead of it. The company was taken over by Google in May last year but there was no launch of a new product since then. Finally the company has broken its silence and announced launch of its flagship product that will be christened Moto X.
