After Google acquired Motorola for $12.5 Billion there were questions about the future of the company. Google already have the Nexus flagship Smartphones and Tablets which are manufactured by OEM like ASUS, Samsung and LG. Motorola released few devices after the acquisition and many speculated the Motorola will manufacture the Nexus line and will become the flagship devices of Android Operating system but Google announced that Motorola will be still an independent company and will be treated like other Android OEMs.

Here comes the biggest announcement from Motorola – the Moto X. Moto X is the 2013 flagship of Motorola. After so many leaks from various Techblogs it was finally announced. The year 2013 is the year of Quad-Core devices (e.g. Galaxy S4, HTC One, Nexus 4) but the new Moto X is powered by a Dual-Core CPU. If you ask me why Dual-Core? Well, Motorola Moto X is optimized to run the latest Android OS. The Quad-Core CPUs are not fully utilized as Android as far as I know is not really optimized for multi-threading for Quad-Core or Octa-Core, so a 2 core CPU is more than enough to handle the Apps required processing power. The dual-core CPU is clocked at 1.7Ghz which is very fast in today’s standard. The full specs of the Motorola Moto X are as follows:

  • Android 4.2.2 – Jelly Bean
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core clocked at 1.7GHz, using Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 2200mAh battery

By having root access you can remove bloatware, install back up apps and have a fully customized Android device.

Notable users designgears and Getaphixx from xda-dev forum were the first to root the Motorola Atrx 4G prior to its release last February.

The process is safe, but PinoyDROID can not be held responsible for anything nasty that happens to your Atrix 4G. Make sure you’ve done your research prior to rooting your Atrix 4G! Check out the rooting instructions below. The HowTo instruction is courtesy of BriefMobile.

  • Download Super One Click v1.6.5

    Motorola Droid X2 leaked pics and specs/android-phone/motorola-droid-x2-leaked-pics-specs/ /android-phone/motorola-droid-x2-leaked-pics-specs/#comments Sun, 06 Mar 2011 11:01:50 +0000 /?p=724 I was reading some blog post at AndroidCentral and this phone caught my attention – Droid X2. The Motorola Droid X2 also known as the Droid Squared and still under test for its FCC certification .

    Even though Motorola Android phones has not yet arrived in the Philippine market, I gave much attention to this phone since the leaks came out few months back. The specs is stunning for a smartphone since its specification is almost of a tablet specs already. Its predecessor Droid X is running under 1.0 GHz TI OMAP3630-1000 and now Motorola uses Nvidia Tegra 2 for this smartphone. I am assuming that this Motorola Android will be fitted with Android 2.3 or Android 2.4 Gingerbread.
