Another take on Motorola’s future
For Motorola, the decision to focus on building smartphones powered by Google's Android operating system could spell trouble for finding a similar suitor.
"I don't think anyone would be interested in buying Motorola now," said Frank Marsala, a research analyst at market research firm Gartner. "There's very little intellectual property there. If they had a differentiated operating system like Palm has or their business was growing like some of its competitors that would make it much more attractive."
