Google certainly made waves in the tech world when it chose to spend a whopping $12.5 billion to acquire Motorola Mobility, but it's fair to say that the Big G has yet to really utilize this most sizable of purchases. Much speculation has pertained to a so-called "X Phone," perhaps accompanied by an "X Tablet" to match, but as yet, these reports have remained decidedly inconsequential. Shots of the X Phone enveloped in a squared-off case were leaked by evleaks a couple of days ago, and as it transpires, high-res images had already been leaked earlier this year depicting the device in all its glory.
One can paint a fairly accurate picture of a company's future movements by assessing public job postings. The requirement of a software expert, for example, is more than a strong indication that a new app, or series of apps could be on the horizon, and in the case of Motorola, its latest job posting serves only to corroborate the rife notion that the company is working with Google to manufacture the 'X Phone' and an accompanying 'X Tablet'. The Wall Street Journal was the first to report on the codenamed devices, and although there has been little else in terms of solid evidence, the vacancy search suggests both Motorola and project partner Google are looking to get the wheels in motion.
