Chris Brogan on the Motorola Moto X

Chris Brogan, one of my two favourite bloggers (along with Seth Godin) wrote an interesting blog post about a new mobile phone coming on the market, Motorola’s Moto X. Chris writes about the phone in a way that most people can understand.

Two pieces of information I really appreciate about the Moto X is the way you can use the phone to tell the time quickly and easily without causing battery drain. The other thing is the quick-draw camera feature.

Have a read of a snippet of Chris Brogan’s blog post;

A few weeks ago, Guy Kawasaki invited me and a whole cast of interesting characters out to Google headquarters to meet the new Moto X phone.Screen Shot 2013-08-01 at 6.50.56 PM

Being that I don’t tend to write posts with any great detail about the tech guts and stuff (you’ll have to read Robert Scoble’s piece or wait for Leo Laporte or any host of really smart people who care about megapixels and stuff…

…Moto X does two things with this information: uses the X8 chip to give us this information (far less battery use) and once we even vaguely move the phone from our pocket, shows us the time and what just buzzed without us having to press a button. That’s cool. It’s thinking about what we’re trying to do and it’s meeting us there. (That’s the kind of thing that I find interesting in a story about a phone.) I guess it’s called Active Display (just read that in a press release).
