There are those moments when Motorola was on its heights to be on top and have its moments in the cellphone business long before Google has announced to buy Motorola Mobility. They are the first to market the first cellphone in the United States in 1983 and during the years between 2003 and 2007, Motorola Razr was the all-time bestselling cellphone.
Now that Google had acquired Motorola Mobility, they are planning on implementing new strategies to bring back the once on the top mobile manufacturer. Considering that Apple’s iPhone is one of their biggest competitors, they should be doing something great that can change the image of their products that are declining in market share. Motorola has struggled ever since to keep up after the first iPhone was launched although the Droid had certain success, because of Android.
The company announced that their upcoming smartphones, which could be probably powered by Android, will have the ability to determine who are in the room by some very advanced voice recognition system techniques. In an interview by Claire Cain Miller of the New York Times, the new CEO of Motorola Dennis Woodside told some very important strategies that they are going to implement including expansion plans that lead him to hire Regina Dugan from Pentagon’s DARPA agency. She will be heading Advanced Technology and Projects group that will comprise a few people within the company. Mr. Woodside also plans to cut the number of devices that Motorola is currently manufacturing from 27 to a fewer numbers. He wants to make the company’s products cool again by loading them with things like sensors that recognize who is in a room based on their voices, cameras that take crisper photos and batteries that last for days.
What do you expect to have in the upcoming Motorola smartphones? For me, I hope to find more iPhone-like features that provides more fun, more reliable and easier to use.
