Does Moto X ad suggest July 11 product announcement?

MotorolaXAd2

While we’ve all seen the Moto X ad that ran this week in the New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal and Washington Post, an observant reader with a keen eye for detail has noted that the couple jumping into the water may hold the key to when the Motorola Moto X will be announced. The theory is that the X and I shapes of the man and woman jumping off the doc represent Roman numerals.

XI + August launch = July 11 announcement?

This theory is reinforced by the fact that Leo Laporte was invited to a small press event at Motorola by Guy Kawasaki on July 10 and 11. Since most rumors point to the Moto X launching sometime in August, a July 11 product announcement isn’t inconceivable. The evidence appears to be in place, but it could be that people are simply imposing their ideas on something that’s not really there.

What’s your take on the July 11 Moto X product announcement theory? Do you think the Motorola ad really hid the date in plain sight?
