Is Motorola Finished With Handsets?

January 29, 2008
Goodbye Moto?
There are early reports that Motorola might be getting out of the handset business to concentrate on serving their enterprise and government customers. Speculation is based on a single analyst’s report to clients. Richard Windsor, an analyst with Nomura International, professed that while the possibility exists of Chinese vendors buying the company, any imminent deal is unlikely.
And let’s be honest, if Motorola can’t fix what’s ailing the company (market share down to less than 25%, compared to Nokia’s 40% share) why would the Chinese fare any better?
It’s hard to imagine that the maker of the market-changing StarTac and Razr phones would fall so far so fast. And, does anyone remember the DynaTac?
