Google unveils much-hyped 'Moto X'

Google is taking another stab at hardware. On Thursday, the search giant’s Motorola subsidiary officially introduced its new smartphone, the Moto X. And while the new device has some features that set it apart from the pack, Google is still taking a big risk as it enters the very crowded smartphone market. The new phone has a 4.7-inch touchscreen and features a customized backplate that comes in 18 different colors. But the one function that stands out the most is the smartphone’s voice command capabilities. Users can activate function on their phone without having to touch the device.
