We’ve heard a few little trickles of information regarding the rumored joint effort between Google and Motorola called the X-Phone. While we haven’t seen anything concrete yet, today a job listing from none other than Motorola Mobility themselves has apparently confirmed the device. Spotted by Phandroid, it looks like Moto is looking for a senior director for the product.
Now these sorts of leaks and finding are always interesting, and for now we’re going to take it with a grain of salt. Either way it’s still extremely interesting to see Motorola Mobility posting a job listing and directly calling out the name of the device. It clearly lists “X-Phone” in their inquiry. Interesting right?
The full listing has since been filled or removed but was listed as “Senior Director of Product Management for the X-Phone at Motorola Mobility.” If that doesn’t confirm the smartphones existence, not to mention close to managing the final product, then we don’t know what does. The fine print before getting removed mentioned a qualified person to head up execution of a “next generation smartphone platform.”
According to sources it sounds like the listing also mentioned the product as being in the “early stages” although according to multiple previous leaks by the Wall Street Journal, the phone is nearly finished while Google and Motorola are also prepping an X-Tablet. Either way we should be seeing and hearing more about this mysterious device soon, so stay tuned. I’m excited to see what Motorola has to offer.[via LinkedIn]
