In the past, we’ve had some bad news when covering the rumoured Motorola X Phone — first we had some sketchy rumours about possible specs, then we had a much sadder rumour which all-but-confirmed that the X Phone wouldn’t be coming to Australia at all.

Well, prepare to swallow some salt, as BGR is reporting yet another rumour.

This time, though, the genesis of this rumour is a post from Google’s Motorola Division advisor Guy Kawasaki. We know Guy; he’s Apple’s former technology evangelist, and former panelist on Vodafone’s App Aid charity gig.

These days, Guy is working with Motorola, and he’s posted a video on his Google+ page, asking the question “wouldn’t it be great if you could personalize your phone like this”, referring to a video about the Porsche Exclusive program that allows Porsche customers to custom-design their own Porsches from a list of given options.

It could just be that Guy fancies a new Porsche, but equally, maybe there’s something to this. Let us know what you think.

Source: And this is being reported as news on the 22nd? Two days later? Try researching your articles first. The internet, where nobody knows you are a dog and any moron can pretend to be a real journalist. Just the sort of sloppy and trashy work I have come… Read more »


How rude.. Cat out of bag. You’re the dog. What’s the url of your blog?


I think it’s an awesome idea, hopefully through the play store, that way we may still have some semblance of a chance to get it here too!


…and out of stock

I remember the good old days of customising Gateway computers (Haven’t ever ordered a Dell) and it was fun as anything. I say bring it on.
