• If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Something NO ONE in the business world ever follows anymore. {{-_-}}

  • Love the byline. The font and logo color, not so much. {{-_-}}

    I like the second one far far better. Great stuff, Moto!

  • Justin W

    Does anyone notice something about the second one? It looks like they used it on their leaked devices (assumed Moto x) in the upper left corner, just without the colors.

    • Rithvik Rao

      Let me copy and paste another comment:

      “How are people so dimwitted? Kellex has mentioned before (and I know this because I have a Moto proto) that Motorola’s prototype phones have a logo with an outside that is dashed – the proto phones also have “Motorola Confidential Property” written on them, sometimes along with “Not for sale.”

      EDIT: Heh, I just saw that I said “Moto proto” :P”

      • Justin W

        Yup, I sure did read that. It’s not that people are dimwitted, by the way, it just really does look like that. The dashes (where the silver is) appears to be the lighter colors while the non-painted area is the darker colors. It could very well be their new logo.

        In addition, I haven’t seen that logo on any of their older prototypes. Why would they just start that with this model?

        • Rithvik Rao

          It’s probably because you haven’t seen many Moto protos. 🙂

          All known Moto smartphone prototypes have that logo… It is possible they drew inspiration from their proto logo but don’t try to find patterns in the proto logo because there aren’t any which can relate to the current logo other than the fact that there are straight lines.

  • Dan

    The purple one looks more like “a Yahoo Company” to me.

  • droidrazredge

    I’m liking this new logo. It’s definitely a sign of “hero” devices from Motorola/Google. This could be a sign of new things to come with unique phones with unique features the ability to customize. The logo shows different colors which could translates to a phone that fits you for how you want to use it.

  • disastrousrainbow

    I dig the second one. Perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Pawnee. I mean, the spirit of Google. Now let’s get some cross-carrier, stock-loving phones out!

  • Is it just me or does the updated picture resemble Nexus colors?

  • boogie_monster

    If they made it more like Chrome logo it’d be nicer IMO.

    A blue “M” and a ring around it that has red, green, yellow in it. and they could make the ring in a way that each color fades and turn into the other color when the color’s suppose to change.

  • lye

    They finally released something. I’ll buy one!

  • tbaybe

    I like purple 🙂

  • John Salas

    I hope the droid line of phones is now gonna have the nexus experience!

    • Steve Benson

      I hope the droid line of phones die in a fiery car crash. Verizon has tarnished that name forever, let it die.

  • Joseph Pojunis

    Diggin’ it

  • Looks Jonathan Ive designed it.

  • Ryan Davis

    A company to stick by

  • Perv Bear

    Hello moto

  • Corey Foltman

    I like the multi-color look

  • Rob Watkins

    I like the multi colored one a LOT better.

  • Ned Danov

    I like the multi-colored ver BUT NOT “a Google company” bit however I may consider something like ” a Part of Google” or may be better one ” ESSENTIAL for Google”

    • Perv Bear

      Or a Johnson & Johnson Company

    • Joseph Pojunis

      I’m pretty sure Google would do just fine without Moto.

  • Derek Ross

    I like the red M logo.

  • Chris Allen


  • Trevor

    They should use the Google red, blue, green, yellow in their logo.


    Def a sign of better things to come

  • Stewie

    I’m sorry, but “Minimal” it is not: They added to the logo … Meh …

  • MichaelFranz

    i kinda like it

  • Derek Lockovich

    I’m loving the multicoloured one. I’m just happy they’re growing with Google instead of being “separate entities” like Serj or whoever said previously.

  • Weber

    If I saw this in the wild, I’d have no clue what I was looking at. What innovation!

  • Joshua Bailey

    All those colors around the logo hints at customizable phone hardware. Think about it. They hinted at being the first oem to allow you to semi-customize your hardware before it is built.

    I think that new logo definitely points to that!

  • JoshGroff


  • Albert Reyna

    maybe all those colors will be available for the moto x? Heres hoping! 😀

    • NexusPhan69

      Ironically the colors in the “hello moto” advertisement seem rather appropriate now. Hmmmmm.

  • deadpenguins

    Does anyone else remember when Google acquired Moto and said that they would be operating as entirely separate entities? I wonder what’s changed since then…

    • KennyVeltre

      Maybe they changed their mind.

      • Stephen Cox

        I, for one, am glad they did!

    • Perv Bear

      Still is. And its still owned by Google. Problem?

    • mike

      Remember how everyone(the internet blogs) also said it was only for patients and they would sell the entire company off before releasing a device?

    • asten77

      I don’t think anything has. Google set a direction that they wanted motorola to follow, and instilled leadership to run it, but it’s a separate, owned company. It’s not part of google proper.

      • deadpenguins

        Kinda hard to argue that it’s an entirely separate company when their slogan literally states “A Google company”. I don’t have any problem with what they’re doing, I’m just confused.

        • asten77

          look up “Wholly owned subsidary”. This page has a great explanation:

          • deadpenguins

            Thanks for the read. I guess I just misunderstood what it means for a subsidiary to be operating independently from its parent.

        • Justin W

          Idk, it’s like a full disclosure thing – Engadget always has their logo, followed by the whole “An AOL company” or whatnot at the bottom of the page. Besides, I think this throws more weight behind what they design and the products they come up with.

  • Tony Byatt

    Nice…The multi-colored theme fits in well…

  • ahhh yes

    purple was saved for sony phones….

  • chris420o

    I….am a big fan

    • chris420o

      and red is my favorite color

  • David Moylan

    someone one the Verge posts made a neat valid comment…the logo on the leaked phone photo resembles the new company logo

    • Rithvik Rao

      How are people so dimwitted? Kellex has mentioned before (and I know this because I have a Moto proto) that Motorola’s prototype phones have a logo with an outside that is dashed – the proto phones also have “Motorola Confidential Property” written on them, sometimes along with “Not for sale.”

      EDIT: Heh, I just saw that I said “Moto proto” 😛

      • David Moylan

        how it what was said dimwitted….the new company logo is a resemblance of the Prototype M on the phones….maybe they took a hint from themselves in the redesign. Asshat, before you try to act like youre a genius, slowly read what was typed 🙂

        • Rithvik Rao

          Fine, you got me, 🙂

          I saw the Verge comment too, and thought you were entirely supporting it because they claimed something about the Moto X already having the logo.

          sorry brah!

  • starnovsky

    A Google company?
    Now we talking! This is a bold statement.

  • Priorities

    Should’ve still called it Googlerolla

  • TheFirstUniverseKing

    Hey Kellex, you might want to update this article. That’s not the new logo, this is the new one. http://www.theverge.com/2013/6/26/4466592/this-is-motorola-mobilitys-new-logo

    EDIT: Oh, you did update it. Awesome. 😀

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Purple and Lower case made me instantly think of a baby. As in Google’s baby. As in we’re now in lock step with Google….. That’s all

  • jaybar

    I like the logo – the multi-color one they’re showing^

    • Added to post. Thanks!

      • Qbancelli


  • ddevito

    I like the color. It symbolizes how Google has (mostly) primary colors, so it’s fitting a subsidiary of Google has a tertiary color.

  • I really like it. I especially like the font change.

  • Qbancelli
  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    Yus!! Now with the google colors it reminds me of stop and shop.

  • Kevin Choi

    Yahoo anyone?

  • Warwick

    Purple, my fave color!

  • Jeremy_Bowling

    Not loving the purple. Should have stayed with Black/Red.

    • Sathariel

      Agreed. The purple just looks weird to me.

  • Brent Cooper

    Anything to make motorola more like Google, I like!

    Edit: and I like the purple

    • michael arazan

      Maybe it might help out HTC, “HTC a Google Partner”
