Google (GOOG +1.4%) roundup: 1) Press shots and specs for the Moto X have leaked. The specs are nothing special - 4.7" 720p display, dual-core Qualcomm CPU, 10.5MP camera - but past reports suggest Motorola is looking to differentiate the X via sensors, battery-saving tech, and hardware customization. It's set to be unveiled on Aug. 1. 2) A Best Buy flier leak indicates the next-gen Nexus 7 will go on sale on July 30, and that the 16GB model will cost $230 ($30 more than the current 7). The new 7 is expected to have a 1920x1200 display, quad-core Qualcomm CPU, and wireless charging support. 3) Web analytics firm DeepField estimates Google (thanks to YouTube) makes up 25% of North American Web traffic, up from 6% in 2010. That might be straining its ISP relationships.
