What ever happened to Motorola? The "Hello Moto" that had greeted Motorola owners has long been silenced since Google acquired the company almost a year ago. Now, Motorola is looking to make a comeback with its new phone, the 'Moto X'. Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside called the device a "hero phone" that will compete against the iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy devices.
This new phone does have a little something up its sleeve that could potentially be a game-changer: Woodside said the Moto X will be "contextually aware." So, if you're driving in your car going a cool 60 mph, your phone will detect your speed and behave accordingly (aka: not let you text and drive). Motorola is also working on a pill that you could swallow that would release acids into your stomach, which would work to authenticate who you are when using your phoneâ€”you know, if typing in your PIN isn't enough already.
This Moto-Google combination is really turning out quite interesting.
