Moto XWell, this is odd. The oft-rumored Moto X, aka Google X Phone, has been officially confirmed by Dennis Woodside, Motorola’s CEO, but the only detail the exec has let slip is a vague ETA – “available this summer.”

Oh, and he’s also mentioned the thing will be the first smartphone ever assembled domestically (in Fort Worth, Texas, to be more exact). Okay, that sounds… interesting, I guess, but what about specs, features, pricing? You know, things that real people are actually eager to hear.

Sorry, but we still have nothing on all that besides rumors, rumors, suspicious “leaks”, and oh, did I mention rumors? Just for the sake of it though, let’s try and recap some of the recently uncovered intel about the Moto X, which could be true… or not.

For one thing, we “know” several slightly different versions of it are being prepared for Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. There’s a good chance the phone will be made available in an array of differently painted models, though on the inside there’s unlikely to be any real difference.

And talking about the inside, the best guess right now is the Moto X will not break any speed records and instead try to grab public attention with a solid quality-price ratio. There’s talk of a 4.7-inch 720p display, Android 4.3, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage with no microSD support.

So what say you, folks? Do you feel patriotic enough to buy the Moto X even if it won’t be a top-notch device?
