Google Gives up on the Xphone!

Posted on the 12 May 2013 by Hadi20 @hadi_frht
The Google XPhone is no longer in development at Mountain View, which has abandoned this project forward to Motorola.
  It would be the first smartphone developed since the acquisition of Motorola Mobility. So many rumors have circulated about this mobile that would change the face of the industry. The high-tech enthusiasts were waiting for the powerful new camera _a ceramic design_ that this mobile "had to offer" ... 
Motorola will take care of the development of this new Smartphone while Google would prefer to focus on the 5th generation Nexus model.
Therefore the Google XPhone does not exist anymore, and will appear under the name Motorola XT1058.  
Leaked Image of Motorola XT1058 Sun Chang Xu, a renowned Chinese analyst gives his version of events. She explains that Google wanted to abandon the project due to lack of technology and innovation. The Mountain View company is no longer interested in the development unlike Motorola, which would take over the design.
And the only way to confirm this news is to wait for the Google I/O, that starts tomorrow to see if the XPhone will be absent.
