    Google to spend up to $500 million marketing ‘Moto X’ phone

    As Motorola Mobility prepares to unveil its first flagship smartphone since being acquired by Google Inc. last year, new details are emerging about the device’s design and Google’s substantial support for it. The moves could have broad implications across the mobile industry.
