Motorola Completes Split, Mobility to Carry on DROID Brand

Motorola Mobility finalized it’s spin-off from Motorola Inc. today and will continue on by manufacturing all of the goodies that we care about, mobile products.  Nothing will change except for their logo which is now that snazzy new red “M” we’ve seen pop up over the last few weeks.  The split allows them to operate as an independently traded company, which again, changes nothing on our  side.

We are expecting this to be one heck of a year on the consumer side of things though with Moto’s release of the world’s first Honeycomb tablet, the DROID XOOM, plus at least 2 separate Tegra 2 Android-based smartphones (Etna and Olympus).  Last year they dominated with the original Droid and Droid X; this year they’ll dominate with their tablet and dual-core smartphones.

This is the year that “DROID does 4G” amongst other things.

More info on the split can be found here.

    Yeah but is 4G widely available? Just cause you have a phone that runs 4G doesn’t mean you’ll get that signal everywhere.

    I give them 18 months before they tank or get bought. Their costs are just too high to compete with HTC, LG and Samsung,

      You’re right. They’ve gained no capital by selling some of the most popular smartphones over the last few year. And motorola is just going to split then off without the funds to manage the projects already under development. oh, and motorola is a much larger company with much more capital than HTC

      What costs? Money? Because Samsung released the Epic 4g on sprint for 250, Lg is FINALLY getting a good android handset out there, and HTC prices their high end devices at the same price point as Motorola’s. Personally, I think Moto’s build quality trumps LG and Samsung. HTC has good built quality as well.

    The M would look better if it was black and not white around the red.
