Following the split of Motorola to form Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions earlier this year, Motorola Mobility has been acquired by Google. This is Google's biggest acquisition and signals its intention to become as dominant in the smartphone market as it is in search.

Motorola and Verizon Wireless announced one of two expected high-end successors to the popular Motorola Droid phone. Running Android 2.1 (and soon 2.2) on a 1GHz TI OMAP processor, the Droid X has a 4.3-inch display with 854 x 480 resolution, an eight-megapixel camera, 8GB of flash plus a 16GB microSD card, and 3G mobile hotspot functionality, say the companies....
Motorola is continuing their trend of moving apps to the Play Store for quicker updates. They already moved the Motorola Camera as well as Touchless Control, and they just added Motorola Connect and Motorola Assist.

A regional court in Munich has ruled that Google-owned Motorola Mobility infringed an Apple patent related to touchscreen technology. The court placed a preliminary injunction on devices that use the patent-infringing tech, including the Motorola Milestone XT720, the Motorola Defy, the Motorola Atrix and the Motorola Xoom.
Basically, if Motorola doesn't upgrade your 2011 Motorola smartphone to Jelly Bean they will (most likely) give you a $100 credit towards a new phone. Limited details right now but I signed up for alerts. Rumors are X2 will be one of these phones.
So if you are looking to a new phone I would wait a few weeks.
