Why the Moto X will change the mobile industry. + Spec & Design Predictions.

What MotoGo just did is start the the smartest thing I've seen a mobile company do since the iphone.

The iphone was revolutionary for a lot of reasons, and since then there has been a lot of innovation in design and

technology and while the speed of the innovation is awesome it has basically caused the design and personalization

aspect of the phone to become stagnant if you think about it most smart phones these days are pretty boring.

It's become a war of specs then about innovation in design and we are reaching a precipice as to how fast we can

upgrade CPU speeds or how fast we can roll out software updates.

Look at every smart phone on the market right now they are all VERY similar.

Sure, different companies use different materials, plastics, metals etc. but there is only so many ways you can

innovate a slab of glass.

Google realizes this and they are taking the focus off specs and pulling in Androids focus on customization and brand-ability.

I mean, that's what Android is all about, customization right?

Here is what I imagine happening...

I figure, 3 base versions under 3 standard designs.

I seriously doubt we will be able to customize the actual design of the phone, It just isn't realistic.
I think there will be 3 "ranges" and 3 designs.

Entry Level - Motorola X3

X3a. 3.5" Screen - Plastic, entry level specs. Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

X3b. 4.0" Screen - Plastic, entry level specs. Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

X3c. 4.5" Screen - Plastic, mid level specs. Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

Mid range - Motorola X2

X2a. 4.0" Screen - Plastic entry level specs. Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

X2b. 4.5" Screen - Plastic mid level specs. Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

X2c. 5.0" Screen - High End plastic, carbon fiber, glass, metal etc. Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

High End - Motorola X1

X1a.
4.0" Screen - High End plastic, carbon fiber, glass, metal etc.
Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

X1b. 4.5" Screen - High End plastic, carbon fiber, glass, metal etc.
Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

X1c. 5.0" Screen - High End plastic, carbon fiber, glass, metal etc.
Choice of one of the 12 colors in the new Moto Logo.

Something like this. I imagine it being a lot like the Apples Mac store.

Anyhow, whatever it is MotoGo has just raised the bar, I don't even need to see the phone to know this is going to be huge. It is something new and exciting and people are going to eat it up.
