The phones in Motorola Mobility's pipeline are "not really to the standards that what Google would say is wow — innovative, transformative," says Google (GOOG -0.2%) CFO Patrick Pichette. That's a little problematic, given Motorola lost $152M in Q4, with its share-losing mobile ops witnessing a 40% Y/Y sales drop. Adds Pichette: "We've inherited 18 months of pipeline that we actually have to drain right now, while we're actually building the next wave of innovation." Is the X Phone part of the "next wave?"
