Word has been all around, but there was no official confirmation about the mysterious X-Phone that Google's Motorola unit is developing. Until now. A job listing on professional networking website LinkedIn by Motorola shows that the company is looking to fill the post of senior director for product management for X-Phone.
The listing has been taken down now, but a similar vacancy has been posted on Motorola's official job board, this time without the name X-Phone. It is widely expected that the company will unveil this mystery device at the upcoming Google I/O 2013 in June.
Previously, Wall Street Journal reported about this device, which will not be part of the Google's Nexus line-up. The report also said CEO Larry Page has promised a sizeable marketing budget for the upcoming smartphone. Apart X-Phone, the company is also expected to work on X-Tablet.
Reportedly, Motorola has run into troubled waters while developing this X-Phone. It is trying to integrate top-of-the-line features in the device but has faced problems with bendable screens, camera improvements etc.
