Those of us in the gadget biz feel a little bad for Motorola.
After a huge hit with the Razr, the company just hasn't seemed to grasp the attention of the fickle U.S. consumer. No matter how many zany handsets the company produces, it remains (along with Nokia) as the has-beens of the U.S. mobile world. The growing popularity of the smartphone only served to underline this.
But a possible rebirth may be coming. BuyGeniusReport is saying that the successor to the HTC-manufactured T-Mobile G1 smartphone -- still the only mobile handset in the wild running Google Android, though not for long -- may actually be made by Motorola.
