CTIA Booth Tour: Motorola

LAS VEGAS -- CTIA Wireless 2009 -- While much has been made of Motorola's handset business, we are reminded here that the company does have a puncher's chance in the infrastructure market.

Our 20-minute booth tour was fact-filled and bookended by two very cool demos: One of an LTE network in action; and one highlighting Moto's expertise in filtering out background noise on cell calls.

As you'll see in the following slideshow, Moto VP Darren McQueen opted not to dwell on the handset business, but to use his tour time to hammer home Moto's ability to deliver broadband on land and over the air -- wherever carriers need it:

Call me a Moto fanboy because I still rock an aging RAZR, but I did see some cool new handsets in a brief stop by the booth, including one for the iDEN network.


I thought that plexi booth was going to fill with blowing dollars like those old game shows. Hey, maybe THAT is how they will disperse the government broadband stimulus funds...

re: CTIA Booth Tour: Motorola Hey kaps;
I can't believe you are still rocking an old RAZR. I had that phone like 4 years ago. If you give one of these new smartphone a chance, you will never go back...I've had the blackberry for 3 years now and it's the best phone I've ever owned.
But perhaps you just like the simplicity of the RAZY

re: CTIA Booth Tour: Motorola

Yes, I believe we are at the end of what they call the "functional life cycle." Still works great for that voice-call stuff. Not so hot for email or messaging, and two days of that at CTIA convinced me that it's time to go smartphone.


But which way? G1 and T-Mobile? Not sure iPhone is the answer, and my last BlackBerry experience was not convincing. Anyone have any luck with the Samsung line?
