Motorola X Phone in May?

Google should unveil Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie at the Google I/O conference which will be around mid-May. At the same time it is expected they will launch a new smartphone, the Motorola X Phone. This is a phone that many rumors have been circulating about for quite some time. The rumors started as far back as the original announcement of the purchase of Motorola by Google and have grown since then.

nexus7-intAlthough it was rumored (and possibly shown off at CES 2012) the long awaited Nexus 7 (I wonder is the Tyrell corporation was involved) 7-inch tablet from Google is coming today to be officially launched during the Google I/O conference. The new tablet will feature 1GB of RAM and a quad (quint?) core Tegra 3 under the screen. For capacity you will get either 8 or 16GB and all of the usual trimmings (no 3G though). The pricing and size would indicate it is intended to rival both the iPad and the Kindle Fire.

*** Update It is live, real and you can buy this new tablet from Google and Asus!***
