Elsewhere in the Android world, the folks over at Phandroid alertly spotted what may be the most solid indication yet that the Motorola X-Phone isn't just a load of mysterious-sounding hot air: The company posted - and subsequently pulled - an advertisement on LinkedIn for a senior director of product management for the X-Phone.
Despite a number of sites calling this "confirmation" of the project, however, it's important to note that this is really anything but - it could be anything from a simple mistake to somebody at Motorola Mobility screwing around on LinkedIn. That said, I'll certainly be listening for any new tidbits on the matter.
It's been a big week for the Nexus 4 - its status on the Play Store changed to "in stock" earlier this week and then miraculously remained there until at least the time of this writing.
Oh, and everyone is all of a-twitter over a white plastic version of it that's been seen in the wild. SlashGear has pictures from a Vietnamese site called Tinh t¿, which do indeed seem to show a sleek white version of the Nexus 4. Frankly I'm inclined to believe it really is a new Nexus 4, since I already can't buy one.
