    Why are they a threat? When Android wins Google wins. Even if Samsung goes the way Amazon did they still gain users and data.

    I also disagree 100% with Sammy being a threat. But either way, if Google steps up their game... we win. If that causes Sammy or Apple to step up... we win. In fact the only way we don't win is if they all start to feel comfortable and stop trying to earn our business.

    This. More competition always ends up being good for the end users.

    This is true, however Samsung could potentially become a threat if they actually switch to tizen and a large number of users follow. I don't see this happening for a couple of years, but you know that Samsung would drop android for their own thing of they could.

    Plus one could argue that Google didn't like the way the Kindle fire was successful and came out with the nexus 7 to slaughter it. I don't think for a minute this was a key motivation with the nexus 7, but it sure was convenient whether intended or not.

    Agree in part with this, but Sammy won't drop Google until there is something to gain. As Sammy doesn't actually own Tizen, it's just a partner in it, it's not like they get their own Google out of it. From a customer experience and retention standpoint, Samsung loses BIG if they lose access to the Google Play Store without something close in quality to back it up with. It is probably inevitable that Sammy will venture out, but even then I still think they'll keep Android devices for awhile releasing dual streams to try to hold on to the significant customer base that won't follow automatically.

    This is why I think Apple can't continue to hold onto their market. Android has internal competition that is constantly pushing the innovative button. This is probably as important as their competition with Apple. It's almost like the Apple vs Microsoft game is being replayed exactly like it did. But now instead of Microsoft, IBM, Dell and NEC you have Google, Amazon, Samsung, HTC and LG.

    Edit: and now it appears we can add Facebook to the list too http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Mobil...3/S19T0Fd7psM/

    Motorola needs to leak something soon... the HTC One is being released, the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be out by the end this or beginning early next month... Motorola is losing steam.

    I for one am looking at the S4 and will buy it if I don't see this coming out soon.

    All sighs point to the announcement coming at I/O next month, May 15th through May 17th.

    That's a one month push-back and 100% rumor to boot. I think we should wait the 4.85 weeks to Google IO to see what they say before doing anything. This article is confusing at least two completely separate rumor threads together to justify their assumptions, made from interpreting "our sources", which weren't named and apparently didn't give them a complete story. 100% nonsense until it's true.

    Droid Bionic 2.0 anyone?

    Definitely not waiting for this. If it comes out early the processor won't be the S800 and that would be the only reason I would get it. I doubt anything they do with it is going to be that innovative if it comes out in May, probably going to be a lot of disappointed people.

    I doubt they will release it in May, they will just announce it. Announcing and releasing are two completely different things, which is why I brought up the Bionic.

    Oh ok. Yeah that was ridiculous. Announcing a phone in January that's not available until the end of the year. Guess we'll see how it goes but I think even if it's only announced in May it still won't be too innovative, unless it's going to be another Bionic situation.

    That seems possible, but I thought he might be referring to tighter integration with Android powered devices (e.g. a sleek smart watch, Google Glass, or some other devices). I can't see greater integration with Google+ being a major feature point for the mass market. While Google+ is growing in popularity, mass media really hasn't picked up on it as it has Twitter or Facebook.

    I suppose it's really anyone's guess. As for the "X Phone" moniker, I'm betting on it being a simple prototype name and Moto probably hasn't set a singular brand yet. I just hope that whatever they decide to push out that they go for an all carrier release. As difficult as that might with carrier stubbornness for exclusives, it'll help get them back in the game.

    Says pretty clearly that we will be looking at pure vanilla Android. This is awesome. Motorola will be like a giant Nexus family of products.
