CEO decries fragility of modern devices in conference call

During Google's quarterly earnings conference call, CEO Larry Page addressed common problems with smartphones -- poor battery life, phone failure when exposed to water, and damage when dropped. Talking about these problems, the CEO suggested that Motorola Mobility's newest phone line currently in production would be close to unbreakable. "When you drop your phone, it shouldn't shatter," Page said. 

When asked about future products from the phone manufacturer in the call, Page replied that "having just seen Motorola's upcoming products myself, I'm real excited about the potential there. In just under a year, they have accomplished a lot, and have impressive velocity and execution."

Earlier this month, former Google CEO Eric Schmidt called the new phones "phones plus" but declined to give any information on specs, screen size, or battery life.
