The Android OS has been doing so well over the past six months, its CEO, Sanjay Jha is starting to speak up about the eminent split. Not surprising to us, as Motorola has been wanting to turn its handset device into an independent company for some time now-first quarter 2011 seems to be their timeframe. The split seems most likely to occur in January or early February, leaving CES and Mobile World Congress trade shows behind them.
Motorola has really turned their outlook around as far as their handheld devices are concerned. The company seemed to be in trouble as the only innovative phone they had put out a few years ago was the Razr, and investors were starting to wonder why they should stay with Motorola. Motorola’s handset division was financially in trouble, as focus became geared toward set-top boxes and networking gear.
The company seems to be on the right path now, with all their new smartphone devices like the Droid, Droid X and Droid 2. Motorola recently unveiled five new Android OS phones, to suit the needs of any tech-savvy customer. The Bravo, Flipout, Flipside, Citrus, and the Droid Pro. The Droid Pro seems as though it will be a fierce competitor, with BlackBerry form and touchscreen capabilities it’s the perfect blend of smartphone worlds.
