Moto's Next Trick
Case in point, speaking at the Software 2007 conference in California today, Moto CEO Ed Zander promised a new video phone that will launch in Europe next week. Zander describes the phone as a "media monster."
Some have been talking about the video device as a potential iPhone killer. Personally, I think to narrow the focus to Motorola versus Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) ignores new devices from the likes of BlackBerry , to name but one other rival. (See RIM Curves It Around.)
Nonetheless, its clear that Motorola needs another hit device like the RAZR to revive its fortunes. Will a high-end video device be that gizmo? It is impossible to say for sure yet, but my gut feeling is "no." It might be a start in the right direction though.
