If Google takes this approach, Motorola devices would have a significant security edge over the devices of other handset makers. As he sees it, there's a two-fold issue with Android for enterprise IT: the multitude of app stores that are not curated and the fact that the security patches sometimes take a year to roll out.
"I think Google will leave Motorola alone to do its designs and marketing but they will give them instructions on how to handle the operating system," Disabato said. "Google is going to expect the patches out fast. That would give Motorola handsets an advantage in the enterprise because their security features would be more up to date unless Samsung disintermediates the operators as well."
Moto X will be available in the United States, Canada and Latin America starting in late August and early September. AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, Verizon Wireless, and national retailers including Best Buy stores will offer the device for $199. T-Mobile and Motorola will also offer the Moto X.

And they are often times slow.0
