Motorola's made more than a few headlines in the mobile space in 2011, not only because of its deal with Google, but also thanks to products like the DROID RAZR and its line of lap docks. Now that the year is just about over, it's time to begin looking forward to 2012, and that's precisely what Motorola Corporate Vice President Christy Wyatt did in an interview posted today over at All Things D. During the talk, Wyatt first touched on what Motorola has done to help its products stand out from the pack. That includes devices like the lap dock — which is something that Wyatt says that Motorola will continue to focus on — as well as performance, which relates to devices being more intelligent and helping to keep your gadgets alive and connected with software like smart actions.
One major aspect of the mobile space that Wyatt says Motorola wants to continue to focus on in the future is the enterprise, helping to make Android and Motorola devices more business-friendly. Wyatt explained that Motorola has focused less on other Android manufacturers and more on customers of "a very strong device vendor already behind the firewall," also known as RIM, that may be looking for alternative products. Motorola wants Android to be the first option when those users are looking for a new platform, Wyatt said, adding that tablet use in the enterprise is something that the company would like to focus on in the coming year.
We've seen Motorola release a number of BlackBerry-esque Android devices in the past, such as the DROID Pro and Admiral, so it's not a shock to hear that the company continues to keep its eyes squarely on the enterprise in 2012. We'll have to wait and see what Motorola can pull out of its hat in the future (perhaps with Google's aid) to help it conquer the pockets of business users everywhere, but with RIM's market share tumbling like it has been, it doesn't seem like Motorola will be short on opportunities to gain ground in the enterprise.
