Google CEO hints that next Motorola phones will be unbreakable

Google CEO Larry Page dropped a tantalizing hint about what his company’s Motorola Mobility division has been working on recently by suggesting that the company’s next phones will be close to unbreakable. When asked about hints on upcoming products during an earnings call with investors on Thursday, Page said that “when you drop your phone, it shouldn’t shatter.” Page went on to say that he had “just seen Motorola’s upcoming products” and was “pretty enthusiastic” about their “real potential to invent new and better experiences.” Page’s comments come after Google Chairman Eric Schmidt this week described Motorola’s upcoming devices as “phones-plus,” although he didn’t provide any details about what new features the devices might include.
