| Another Android-capable device comes down the line, but this one is different 
| from anything currently out on the market. ZiiLabs created the StemCell 
| computer to be an open standards development platform, capable of running a 
| Linux distro or Android with equal ease. This ZiiLabs EGG is not a phone, but 
| it can be upgraded with the proper chipset to become one.

| much as anybody on the Android platform," he added.

| phone runs Linux, most likely an updated version of Motorola's Linux/Java
| MotoMAGX stack. In fact, the Evoke QA4 appears to be the second Motorola
| phone after the Moto VE66 (pictured below, right) announced in November, to
| support Motorola's MotoDev Studio for WebUI "widget" platform for MotoMAGX.

| To do that, Motorola will draw on its experience tinkering with the same
| Linux-Java software used in Android to make what it hopes are compelling

| area of focus for the Android phones. Jha says in an interview that Motorola
| engineers are working closely with Google to develop appealing apps.

| Plantation, Florida – with 77 jobs for the chop as a result, added on to the
