Hey...it just hit me. Could you imagine if we...DroidForums.net members and staff, a true community in the modern definition corralled our massive wealth, knowledge and business acumen and pooled our resources together to crowd-fund the purchase of Motorola!? Heck, if Ouya could get 8.6 Million to fund one new game console, we should be able to raise 3.5 Billion or so to buy Motorola and all its existing technology.

Stick with older Moto Android phones
Follow Moto to WP
Try to find another Android phone manufacture with Moto type phone reception.
One reason I kept using Motorola was phone reception. That to me is more important than the OS it runs. And yes...only reason I got rid of my E815 was because the Droid line had the best reception for smartphones at that time. I might go back to flip phones, feature phones. Blackberry....
This sucks tremendously....seems no company is above spin, saying one thing doing another...not even Google. Out of everything Google has done or been aprt of that I didnt like, this has to be the worse...and I thought nothing would beat the 15 min refund period....
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Think that may have been part of this entire secret deal. Samsung gives up on Tinzen, Google drop motorola but keep the patents, Google share...ughh agree to a deal with Samsung that they will share their patent so Samsung can continue making iphone clones with android os on it. Samsung wins, Google wins, Motorola, LG, HTC lose.
But then again Google could still continue with their unbiased relationships with oems... I wouldn't be surprised to see one or 2 more LG nexus devices so on the surface Google can say "see we are still committed to working with other oems".
I think I'll keep my droid maxx indefinitely as a relic to times when America owned something besides debt
Sony CM-B1201 > Samsung SCH-8500 > Motorola RAZR V3m > Samsung SCH-i760 > Motorola DROID X > HTC Thunderbolt > Samsung Galaxy Nexus/Motorola Droid Razr Maxx > Droid Maxx
Out of all the phones I could have bought, I bought the Moto X.
1. It was assembled in the USA.
2. It was not expensive
3. I could use Motorola's Money (w/ no interest)
4. It was assembled in the USA. ( I know I said it twice )
Mobile technology is the newest technological revolution pie, and America needs to not just be consumers of it.
We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too. ...President John F. Kennedy
