Reports are swirling today that Google might have abandoned or given up on the fabled “X Phone.” The source of the information is from Chinese analyst Sun Chang Xu who left a comment on her Weibo blog. Our Chinese is a little rusty, but a friend tells us that the vibe of the message is that Google doesn’t care about the “X Phone” anymore and they are letting Motorola do their own thing with the device.
The rough translation says that Motorola will not be cancelling the device, but it is no longer slated for the Chinese market. This information contradicts some other reports, so we will have to wait and see what happens.
We have heard nothing to support this latest rumor, but we have reached out to our sources to see if they can provide an update. The last we heard, Motorola was planning to launch the first “X Phone” device in August. As far as we know, things are still on track and unlikely to change, but the launch plan for other countries might still be up in the air.
Are you still excited for the over-hyped X Phone, or are you already let down?
