Motorola works on phone’s durability
Despite the latest positive reports about the Google’s earnings showing boosted profit and net income of $3.90 billion, which is an increase by 31% compared to last year, many dark spots and untapped resources can be found. One of these dark spots is Motorola’s division. The revenue for Motorola is declining steadily and it has dropped again from $1.51 billion to $1.02 billion in the first quarter. Now Google seems determined to solve Motorola’s problems by developing a brand new product line.
According to Google’s CEO, the new phones will address more than ever some of the common durability user complaints. Larry Page has pointed that none of the durability problems should be an issue for the new phones and must be solved – speaking about water damage, drops and battery life.
Page has added also that he felt really excited having seen some of the new products and they possess a great potential. Following the latest news, the new product line is expected to run stock Android and the phones won’t be gigantic. Eric Schmidt has already called them “phones-plus”, but that definition can only keep us guessing. One is sure – Motorola will try to attack the market which has been ignored by the other manufacturers – devices with conformable sizes and good characteristics, not encumbered with many features, and running basic Android. This may be the path to improving the company’s earnings and returning to profitability.
