Motorola X mysteriously detailed (don’t credit the source!)

Motorola X mysteriously detailed (don’t credit the source!)We’ve been discussing the Motorola X for a few months now, with increasingly wild theories suggesting that Google intends to use the super-phone to remind Samsung who’s boss.

Intentions aside, the Motorola X appears to be a reality, and this latest leak is easily the strangest yet.

The Motorola X leak originally appeared on an unnamed forum (XDA? Was it XDA?), but the source post has since disappeared.

Fortunately, Droid Life has all the details, though the unnamed forum has specifically asked not to be credited.

Anyway, according to the leak, the Motorola X will be announced at Google I/O in May, with a target US release date of July 8.

The Motorola X won’t be a Nexus device, though it will be available directly through Google Play. It’ll also run fairly stock(ish) Android, with the Motorola bloatware kept to a reasonable minimum.

Specific to our friends in the US, the Motorola X will reportedly be available on all carriers, with Verizon selling the device for $299 on contract and charging $15/month to unlock the bootloader. Amazing.

Interesting stuff, though a generous teaspoon of salt is recommended. All eyes on Google I/O 2013, which opens its doors on May 15.

Why the hell would it cost $15 per month to have the bootloader unlock? Am i crazy or is Google being stupid now?
