Not a Nexus. The Google Motorola X Phone and X Tablet…

Deep within the labs of Motorola Mobility (MM) a crack team of engineers has been assembled, a team branded X. Tasked by Google with taking on the top handset makers the X series of phones and tablets will create a new brand and line of products for Motorola and a new standard in high end smartphones for Google.

Motorola are launching a new offensive on the fast emerging 4G LTE handset market with a masterpiece of design and function, the Kevlar and glass wrapped RAZR HD. With the rich heritage of the RAZR family it was only a matter of time till Motorola got the formula right once again, randomly changing design has that effect.

The sleek design, smooth ICS interface and incredible speed of 4G combine into the perfect storm of a handset. This phone may be even better than the original RAZR flip phones.

In the Technoid Labs here at Highpants we were lucky enough to receive a brand new RAZR HD for testing this week. This was the first unboxing in quite a while that had a crowd gathering, generating many oww ahhh moments. The RAZR HD was quickly put into service, first impressions universally concluded that this is one sharp looking and sleek handset.

In the 4G handset market the iPhone 5 has quickly taken position as the number one handset while the Samsung SIII has taken the 3G market by storm, and these are just two of the fierce competitors in the mobile phone handset market. HTC have been providing 4G LTE handsets from the outset, they now have high end 4G models; the One X and One X HD are HTC’s super phones. LG has their new Optimus G super phone as well. The handset market has to be one of the most competitive and fast changing markets in the world, a tough battlefield.
