Oh man, love those tiny stool chairs. Look so comfy...not!
Hey, my desk chair is a lot more comfy than those Moto G chairs. So there's that.
Of course, I'd trade an uncomfortable chair for Brazil weather right about now.
It's funny how Google-y Motorola has become in such a short time.
Unfortunately, that Googleliness hasn't translated into sales yet. The Moto X hasn't exactly lit it up. We'll see how the lower cost Moto G performs.
Yeah...but I like Google-y!
@mxcaltrz: I would hope so too!
Yeah, the Moto X is aimed right at would be iPhone buyers...but many switchers want a bigger screen.
So question to the readers: Which do you consider the true Google phone? The Moto X, made by a unit of Google, or the Nexus 5, made by LG under the direction of Google?
@RohitBhatia: I think that's one of the issues Motorola faces -- the Nexus program already has built in credibility.
And if Google picks Motorola for a Nexus phone, other handset manufacturers may cry foul.
Lots of beards in the audience. I can dig that.
But isn't Motorola supposed to be embracing pure Android phones? Admittedly, it doesn't get the latest version like a Nexus device.
@nexus 5 Actually the Moto X is mostly stock Android with some of Google's extra goodies included. Like the active notifications and touchless control.
Sergio Buniac, GM of Latin America South, Motorola Mobility, takes the stage.

We're shutting off comments now as the event begins.
Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside gets up after a short intro.
Now for an update on Moto X.
It's been 83 days since the launch, and the reception has been "absolutely fantastic."
People who own the phone love, he says.
It's changing the way people interact with their smartphones, he says.
Everyone who owns a Moto X uses sneak peak to get info without turning on their phone. They also use their camera more often.
Ok here comes the Moto X software sales pitch.
Touchless control pushes people to use Google voice search, he says.
Seeing a spike in sales of Moto X with Moto Maker becoming available across all carriers.
Moto X will get KitKat in a matter of weeks, he says.
Woodside talks about "Windy Day."
I do really like touchless control and the active display...makes checking updates fast and easy.
It's an exclusive...something...for Moto X
So not sure if they've lost audio or we lost audio, but we can't hear anything.
It's just a promo clip of people using the Moto X. Really not effective without audio.
Uh oh! I'm not hearing any sound either.
