After no new pure Nexus announcements at Google I/O and rumors that Goggle nixed the Motorious XFon for not being innovative enough, new rumors suggest that the XFON may be coming to Verizon Wireless. FCC documents show a model for Sprint, too.
There were benchmarks and FCC filings of the Motorola XT1058 for AT&T there are rumors of a Motorola XT1060 with CDMA radios for Verizon. Tie information was garnered from a .ini file taken from leaked Motorola USB drivers. The processor is “MSM8960CDMA,” a Snapdragon 4 Pro dual-core processor.
Thus we may assume that the Motorola X XFON is not unlocked but designed for specific networks.The XFON was supposed going to be a dream unlocked smartphone, low-priced like the Nexus 4 and capable on connecting to CDMA networks like Sprint and Verizon Wireless.
If Motorola is not carrying on with Atrix, Photon and Droid branding it will be interesting to find out if the devices will have the same names across carriers.
Previous leaks suggest a Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor and not too large touchscreen.
We would not be surprised if something Motorola and Droid were announced by Verizon Wireless at CTIA on Wednesday. We'll be guessing until we get there, just in time for the press conference. If it's not a device, it's a plan change or change of plans.
