In 2011, Google made a move that no one expected, they bought their own OEM: Motorola Mobility. Now it took about a year for that purchase to become realized and official, but the geek world could hardly stand the wait to see what would come out of this newly united couple.
Jump forward to August 2013, just a hair over two years since that acquisition, Motorola takes the stage to announce the Motorola Moto X. There is back and forth controversy as to how much influence Google had on the development of this phone, both hardware and software. Motorola continues to point out that they run independently of Google, but truth be known, there is only a firewall that separate the two. They even shared a Google officer to be the new the CEO, Dennis Woodside.
I read all the rumors and leaked info on this phone for almost a year. The hype was building up for so long. I even debated on dropping my Verizon unlimited data plan to go to ATT (because they released the custom version first). The question is though, was the wait for the Moto X worth it? Hang around after the break, and I'll give you my answer to that question.
