Motorola had troubles fitting all their profits to their pockets. Razr was highly successful product during the year and still continues to sell well. Motorola CEO gave out their recipe for future success: “More Razr.” However, I don’t know if this is a valid statement. Razr is bound to become obsolete, as other manufacturers churn out similar models and slight updates just won’t do it in hardened competition. Product diversification doesn’t work either – Rokr didn’t manage to convince industry analysts, but money-consuming masses bought the phone anyway, because it is the best music-playing mobile phone in the States at the moment. Rokr’s status will not hold for long, because Nokia is soon able to launch its music phone. We’ll see for how long Motorola will march on. Business Week had commentary on this, days ago.
Motorola goes rugged
Nokia and Ericsson innovated it – the product segment of blue-collar mobile phone users. Motorola has finally seen the light and follows the lead. HC700 (could HC come from hard core?) features color touch-screen, barcode imaging, WiFi and Bluetooth. Read the press release at PR Newswire.
