Talking about Motorola, Google CEO, Larry Page had the following to say as part of his remarks on the company’s 2013 Q1 earnings call:
In today’s multi-screen world, the opportunities are endless. Think about your device.
Battery life is a challenge for most people … you shouldn’t need to carry a charger around with you to make it through the day.
If your kid spills their drink on your tablet, the screen shouldn’t die.
And when you drop your phone, it shouldn’t shatter.
There’s real potential to invent new and better experiences — ones that are much faster and more intuitive.
So having seen Motorola’s upcoming products myself, I am really excited about the potential there. In just under a year they’ve accomplished a lot and have impressive velocity and execution.
I think that he pretty much nails it. I love Motorola’s RAZR range for their battery life and damage resistance. If the CEO is happy with what he has seen of Motorola’s upcoming products, I certainly am interested in seeing and handling those phones. Unfortunately, we don’t see many Motorola mobile phones in these parts. Bummer. Still, the Motorola vision, as expressed by Larry here, is one that I am in sync with.
Meanwhile, Motorola is still posting a loss. Sigh. That’s a different story altogether…
