Starting off its reported $500 million marketing bonanza in getting the word out about the Moto X and all its cool features, the first two ads, 'Moto X - Quick Draw' and 'Moto X - Always ready' have hit the web and airwaves.  In the first, seen below you see the 'quick draw' camera activation feature that just takes a flick of the wrist. You also see a plethora of different Moto X colors which frankly is the first time I can think of ever seeing a phone in so many colors.  Cool.

In the second ad, we see a sample of the 'touchless Google Now' feature which recognizes your voice and lets you speak commands to your Moto X without ever touching your phone.  Our sleepy star leaves himself a note, resets his alarm and more just by talking to his Moto X.  We end by once again seeing a quick cut of various Moto X colored phones.   I have to admit, this 'Touchless Google Now' could end up being a really big 'must have' feature of the Moto X.

Like the sleeper, I'd need to make sure my head isn't turned the other way when the wake up "notification" goes off or I'll think it's part of my dream....

Good job B  :)

Apparently the Moto X is a 'brand' and there will be other phones as part of the Moto X brand beyond what we were shown today.  They do expect to have models available in europe...they just might differ slightly from the Moto X shown today.  Also we can expect Moto X phones at different price points.  Apparently we will be seeing other models in 'coming months'.  I'll try and find a source link from where I read this.  Still, I'm actually pretty impressed from what I saw today.  I know think the pricing was steeper than they wanted but to be honest $199 on a two year contract isn't that crazy.  Especially if you get a customized option for that price.  Just think of the crazy logistics that Motorola has had to figure out to mass produce customized phones.  It's a logistical nightmare.  To be able to do that and get the customized phone shipped to a customer in 4 days is pretty darn impressive if you ask me.  It's something that neither Apple or Samsung has ever done at this scale.

They can keep it at those prices and if the "midrange" speced Moto X is $575-630 what is a higher speced model going to cost??
It's not the specs that bother me, it's the specs and price combined. Midrange specs at highend prices.

Besides even if it did come to the UK and Europe it wouldn't be made in America... so you can't argue that.

I'll stick with my Nexus 4 and wait for the next Nexus...

I disagree with your description of being 'mid-range' specs.  Show me a Galaxy S4 or HTC One with separate language and contextual custom processors?  I don't think you're really understanding the X8 architecture here.  If they had simply jammed an S600 or S800 chip in the Moto X they couldn't provide the always on 'touchless Google Now' and other contextual type features without having multiple batteries or a phone twice the size.   This phone is still getting 13 hours of talk time or 24 hours of mixed use.  That's leading edge battery life...with all this cool extra functionality.

Using a dual core S4 pro tied to a 4 core Adreno 320 GPU and two custom processors provides a 'system' that is as or more capable than any of the other leading phones.  Graphics scores are benchmarking HIGHER than either the S4 or the HTC One, so I disagree with the label mid-range.  That's looking at it too simplistically imo.   The engineering that went into this thing is actually pretty impressive.  The size is substantially smaller and lighter than either the S4 or the One...it's more the size of the iPhone 5...yet it provides a still large 4.7 inch screen.  Even the battery is custom designed...it's not a standard square or rectangular battery...it's been 'stepped' to fit the curved back of the phone...in order to not waste any space.   It's even using a Nano SIM to save space instead of standard or Micro SIM.  This is good stuff, man...you're missing the big picture.

Think of it this way.   Why do people buy BMWs over American cars that have more raw horsepower?  Because they drive better, handle better, have better engineering.  See what I mean?  Sometimes the best isn't about just the numbers...it's the whole package.  The Moto X is the BMW of phones.
