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.
