I had faith, but at the same time became a little disillusioned when Motorola retracted their early promises of upgrading the Photon to ICS (along with some other Motorola phones from non-Verizon providers). That was the point when I figured it'd be best to step away, until Google was really able to dig their paws into righting the Motorola ship (assuming that was even possible). Even November would be before my projected 2 year timeframe (w/ a 1 year minimum), so if Google does manage to pull off the "a-la-cart" phone by that time, I'd be amazed that they were able to act that quick.
The PHOTON fiasco is still fresh in my mind.Perhaps not as bitter or vocal about it,but,very mindful of their handling of it.The locking it down w/the 2.3.5 update & playing dumb/amnesiatic episode/history revision,etc...whatever you want to call it,was an immature & downright deceitful move.
Even though they've "cleaned house",MOTO will have to "show me the $",talk is cheap.
Until they prove that they're gonna actually support a phone in a relatively timely manner,as good as the MOTOX sounds like it can be,I'll take a pass on it.
They'd better roll out something before SAMSUNG steamrolls 'em w/the SGSIV & NOTE III.
Don't get me wrong,I think MOTO will be around for the long haul,whether they gain market share or not.
eluded to earlier,GOOGLE is in this for the long haul, w/MOTO being the sole US manufacturer.
I really liked my MO'PHO & perhaps in a couple years,MOTO will be sailing along just fine.I'll take a look @ 'em then.
