Motorola is dead, long live Motorola – a Google company. A new chapter in Motorola’s long and storied history has begun. The smartphone maker’s pre-acquisition roadmap has now run its course and everything we see from here on out will have been developed under Google’s watchful eye. The first such smartphone is the Moto X, which BGR absolutely loved when we reviewed it earlier this month, and it can finally be called the first real “Google Phone.” The Moto X represents Google’s vision of what an Android smartphone should be, and it also marks the first time a smartphone will be made to order right here in the U.S. thanks to Motorola’s “Moto Maker.” The Moto Maker is now live and the handset is also available AT&T’s site as well as in stores starting at $199.99 on contract.
