One year ago, Motorola was not in the greatest position in the market. They had produced several products that had not managed to match the success of their mega-popular RAZR. Fast forward to today, and Moto is in quite the opposite position. Today the company announced that their earnings for Q2 reached $162 million, compared to $26 million just one year ago. Moto estimates that it shipped 8.3 million phones in Q2, 2.7 million of which were smartphones. Much of Motorola's success can be attributed to the DROID, quite possibly the most popular Android device to date.
The DROID definitely helped to bring Motorola back from the brink, and now they company is stronger than before. They just released the DROID X on Verizon, which seems to be doing rather well, and it is expected that the DROID 2 will drop some time next month. Considering the success of the original DROID, I'm sure we'll see strong sales of its improved successor, as well. Keep up the good work, Moto!
