Woodside also touched on the Moto G during the interview, saying that the device came out of a specific challenge: “How do we create a phone that’s objectively as good as iPhone 5 for a third of the cost.” Woodside said that technology costs have gotten low enough where that’s possible. “That’s what we did with Moto G,” he tells Brownlee.
Dennis Woodside is CEO of Motorola Mobility. The Moto G is objectively as good as iPhone 5? Subjectively speaking, I don’t think so. But if Woodside really thinks it is, Motorola will run into bumpy roads ahead.
