Motorola has filed a recent trademark for the “Stadia” name, and while the name alone doesn’t do much to stir up excitement, the uncharacteristically detailed listing does. From the sound of it, the Motorola Stadia mark would be applied to a handset with a focus on gaming. From the description, Moto is aiming to use the name for a “handheld game device in the nature of hand-held units for playing electronic games for use with external display screen or monitor.”
The listing also references “electronic non-medical portable device for measuring, storing, transferring and synchronizing an individual’s physical exercise and activity levels including date, time, heart rate, global positioning, direction, distance, altitude, speed, distance, calories and temperature,” (click the above to embiggen) suggesting there is a chance this could a phone more catered towards fitness and exercise than anything else. Interesting to say the least.
So, do you think Moto is conjuring up something to rival Sony Ericsson’s Playstation Phone?
