Well known by now, Motorola has been experiencing difficulties in introducing its mobiles and getting users to appreciate them at once. As further proof to enormous pressure the company has been taking for some time, a rumor surfaced, claiming that the giant manufacturer decided to drop all Symbian developments and go for Android
For now this piece of news has not been confirmed, but apparently the company does have a lot of faith in its own Symbian
development. Whether the process towards its own OS was not going well or it realized that the Android OS was the way to go in the future, at first sight it seems that the company gave up too easily.
's recent announcement stating that it was going to use Google open-handset source for a mobile of its own, a rumor came from Spain, as Oscar Rodriguez, director of mobile devices, Motorola Spain, supposedly declared, “The company is sound and can hold three quarters with lower sales in exchange for making a bet for the future”.
With this new event development it's now even harder to predict whether Motorola
will get back in the “saddle” or continue to fail users. Up till now most people were convinced that the company was going down fast and that its mobile department would be given no more than some months or years, considering its announced mobile department cutbacks.
Also, another rumor was born immediately after the one in question, since now it is said that the development of the RAZR3, also known as Ruby
, which was supposed to feature Motorola's Symbian, will cease and Android will take its place. Claims such as this one cannot offer anyone any insurance so for now enjoy the rumors, if you feel this is the case.
These arguments convinced the company's directors that the switch to Google
's Android system would eventually be the more profitable choice.
Should these rumors turn out to be true, this means Motorola will base its mobiles only on the Windows Mobile
OS for smartphones, on Android for multimedia devices, and on its own basic level OS for low-end mobile releases.
