Moto X officially launches

The day has finally arrived. After buying Motorola two years ago, after enduring the setbacks and doubts, and after the numerous leaks on the web, it's finally here - the Moto X.

At a press event today, Google unveiled its best creation, a true Google phone, finally. Sporting a 4.7-inch screen with a 1280 x 720 resolution, the Moto X is the newest challenger in a category dominated by the HTC One.

With its 2GB RAM and 10-megapixel rear-facing camera, you'd easily dismiss it as ordinary. But make no mistake. Google and Motorola poured their best work on this phone, making it sure that the hardware and software will blend perfectly together.

Perhaps the fascinating feature of the Moto X is its touchless control. The phone brings out the best of what Google can offer. That means being able to command Google Now by simply using your voice. Yes, it's called touchless for a reason. "Moto X is ready when you are. It responds to your voice - no touching necessary," the company said.

Another is a feature called Active Display, which quitely displays notifications without having to wake up your phone, hence, the term "active." Okay, you might be wondering how the Moto X will manage to keep its battery sustainable throughout the day, knowing that the aforementioned features are sure to drain out all that juice in a matter of minutes. Here's where the hardware genius comes.

Google was able to develop a unique processing architecture called the X8 Mobile Computing System which uses eight cores, with one of them responsible only for the touchless feature and another low-power component for the active display. This way, Google was able to preseve battery life on the phone.

The Moto X will be available in the U.S., Canada and Latin America in late August or early September. Black and white models will also be available at AT&T, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless at a retail price of $199 on top of a new two-year contract.
