Motorola is very good phone!!! here is history of motorola company...Motorola started as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1928. The name Motorola was adopted in 1947, but the word had been used as a trademark since the 1930s. Founder Paul Galvin came up with the name Motorola when his company started manufacturing car radios. A number of early companies making phonographs, radios, and other audio equipment in the early 20th century used the suffix "-ola," the most famous being Victrola; RCA made a "radiola"; there was also a company that made jukeboxes called Rock-Ola, and a film editing device called a Moviola. The Motorola prefix "motor-" was chosen because the company's initial focus was in automotive electronics.Most of Motorola's products have been radio-related, starting with a battery eliminator for radios, through the first walkie-talkie in the world, defense electronics, cellular infrastructure equipment, and mobile phone manufacturing. The company was also strong in semiconductor technology, including integrated circuits used in computers. Motorola has been the main supplier for the microprocessors used in Commodore Amiga, Apple Macintosh and Power Macintosh personal computers. The chip used in the latter computers, the PowerPC family, was developed with IBM and in a partnership with Apple (known as the AIM alliance). Motorola also has a diverse line of communication products, including satellite systems, digital cable boxes and modems.On October 6, 2003, Motorola announced that it would spin off its semiconductor product sector into a separate company called Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.. The new company began trading on the New York Stock Exchange on July 16th of the following year.See also: List of Motorola products (including Freescale's semiconductors)The Six Sigma quality system was developed at Motorola even though it became best known through its use by General Electric. It was created by engineer Bill Smith, under the direction of Bob Galvin (son of founder Paul Galvin) when he was running the company. Motorola University is one of many places that provides Six Sigma training.Recently, a massive turnaround plan has been executed successfully by CEO Edward Zander, although many credit former CEO Chris Galvin with taking the first comprehensive steps. Due to recent layoffs and the spinoff of Freescale Semiconductor, the number of employees working for Motorola has gone from just over 150,000 to approximately 66,000. Motorola has recently been regaining market share in the cellular-phone business from Nokia, Samsung and others due to stylish new cellular phone designs like the Motorola RAZR V3. The company also unveiled the first ever iTunes phone, the Motorola ROKR E1, in September 2005, and the Motorola SLVR in January 2006. Motorola has recently announced its new iRadio music service as a potential substitute for iTunes compatibility. Furthermore, Motorola is expanding it's product lines with Apple's iTunes, with the new KRZR, SLVR, and RAZR V3i. According to Motorola, they see their cell phones as a media gateway. Dominating many pocket PC's with their new Motorola Q. Motorla engineers are currently working on more technological advancemtns, and say that the next-generation Motorola Q will consist of photography and video recording quality of a consumer digital camera or camcroder you would find at any electronics store. According to Zander "I have the stuff done in China and other places. We're not American. We have 3000 engineers in China; we have 2000 engineers in India." The entire RAZR line of phones are "completely made in China". The new Motofone which "is designed and manufactured in India" will be Motorola's newest entry.With the shifting focus of all telecom equipment manufacturere toward services, Motorola had for a unique joint venture company with Wipro. The company name as WMNetServ will provide managed services and professional service to Motorola customers worldwide.Motorola sold its Automotive division to Continental in April 2006 and is proceeding with a policy of streamlining its cell phone business, hoping to take the number one spot from Nokia.On November 10, 2006, Motorola and Good Technology announced that the companies have signed a definitive agreement under which Motorola will acquire privately held Good Technology, a leader in enterprise mobile computing software and service.The Mobile Devices division is the largest division (based on revenue) of communications corporation Motorola. The division is headquartered in Libertyville, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. Motorola's networks division (called Personal Communication Section (PCS) prior to 2004) pioneered the flip phone with the StarTAC in the mid-1990s. Motorola had a commanding lead in the analog cellphone market, but failed to jump on the digital bandwagon. This mistake combined with the lack of design innovation gave Finnish company Nokia the opportunity to leapfrog ahead of Motorola. Nokia today is the world's largest manufacturer of cellphones with a commanding 33% market share. Motorola is a strong number two with a 22% market share as of July, 2006.n 2002-2003, Motorola's Mobile Devices department reinvented itself. Three areas of significant improvement were user friendliness, design and brand. Motorola started paying more attention to the user experience, and models such as the v300, v400 and v600 (called the triplets) were among the first to boast an easy user interface. Coupled with this improvement, Motorola stressed on design and brand image. The result of constant effort in this direction led to the RAZR V3............In 2004, Motorola released the RAZR V3. This phone has been by far the largest selling phone in the United States and elsewhere since its introduction, with 50 million handset shipments as of July 2006. In an era where free phones were the norm, this desirable fashion icon commanded a price of $499 with a two year contract. The RAZR was a runaway success and Motorola built on that success by releasing other phones based on their design. These include the PEBL U6, SLVR L6 (ultra-thin but very affordable), SLVR L7 (more expensive variant of SLVR L6), RAZR V3c (CDMA) and RAZR V3i (with upgraded camera and appearance)..In the late 1990s, lack of design and a friendly user interface left a gaping hole in Motorola's product offerings. Nokia saw this, and introduced stylish cellphones with a friendly human interface with features like a big screen and an easy to navigate menu. This was marketed as "human technology". Nokia's rise coincided with the cellphone revolution in several emerging markets such as India. Nokia quickly became no. 1 in the world.
