Motorola working on stock Android Phones
The need for a smaller phone was first realized by HTC, so discovering the opportunities for selling smartphones with stock software is not something new on the market. However, it seems that in the near future you will have another option to choose. According to PC Mag, Motorola is planning a new device, which unlike the recent tendency of constantly increasing the size will be smaller than most of the new phones on the market. It will run stock, unadulterated Android, as Jim Wicks said. With the new line, Motorola will try to exploit one particular market niche – those people who don’t care about big screens and want something just right. New model’s target customers will be also those people with no experience with Android.
Moreover, Wicks said that the phones are going to be bloatware free as possible. We will see if Motorola will succeed in keeping these devices free. We know that when the carriers are finally involved the things can change dramatically. Until now, it’s impossible to buy a clear Android device, except Google Nexus which has caused controversial discussions about the cons of stock software devices.
What about the design? According to Jim Wicks, the phone will be as narrow as possible and drop and scratch resistant. What is more, Motorola is aimed at staying away from the latest specifications and to be closer to customers than ever, therefore the designers will put the device in the hands of the end users for valuable customer experience feedback. Motorola says that it will produce fewer models this year and to drive more singular expression of the brand, unlike the previous politics to launch diverse and randomly named devices on the market. You can expect the new stock Android Phones to be out by the second half of 2013.
