Motorola: Goodbye Handset Industry?
Will they or will they not? After spending a great number of years in the handset business, will Motorola finally throw in the white towel and call it quits amidst faltering sales and intense competition? According to Engadget Mobile, if you ask Nomura International analyst Richard Windsor, Motorola would do better refocusing their efforts in becoming an “enterprise and government company” as opposed to staying in the handset industry. After reaping a short-lived success with the debut of their RAZR line, Motorola has failed to capitalize on it which has resulted in their poor performance as of late which has led them to consider bidding farewell to the handset industry as a serious alternative. If anyone from Motorola is reading this post, my suggestion to you guys is to get over the RAZR-design craze and focus on more innovative features. Sure, the RAZR design was a success, but the lack of features combined with poor performance made it a one-hit wonder. Bring something new to the table in terms of features and functionality, and maybe consumers might give you a second chance.
