Our Editor-in-Chief Dieter Bohn is at MWC in Barcelona, Spain gathering all the news he can about new devices, applications, and basically the state of the mobile industry. He's been doing a wonderful job for our sister site WMExperts but where's the love for Android? We had expected a HUGE...

Is Android Enough To Save Motorola? What About Windows Mobile 7?

We've been telling anyone who would listen that Motorola Hardware + Android OS = Killer Device. We especially feel confident considering that Motorola without Android is simply floundering--they recently revealed that they lost about $4.6 BILLION dollars in the fourth quarter. Yeah, it can't get...

Motorola Lays Off 77 in Mobile Division

It's no secret that we love us some Motorola around these parts. We've been saying Motorola Hardware combined with Android Software would simply be a killer device. It's almost sad for us to document the current downfall of a once great company. Motorola has laid off 77 employees in Florida,...

Motorola: 4,000 Layoffs Expected, Android Team Is Safe

Ah, the worst is to be expected when it comes to Motorola and our current economic climate. Motorola announced that 4,000 workers will be laid off and most of it will come in their struggling mobile division. Definitely sad news for a company that was so dominant just a few years ago. However,...

Motorola Still Interested In Windows Mobile, Kind Of

Fresh off of our report that Motorola was ditching Windows Mobile to focus on Android, we have caught word that that's not entirely true (yet, at least). According to Brian Viscount, Motorola's VP of Marketing for Mobile Enterprise Computing, the reports that Motorola is ditching Windows Mobile...

Motorola to Make Android Only Devices ? Bye, Bye Windows Mobile!

We've covered the whole Motorola saga here on Android Central ad nauseam. We know Motorola is going through a rough patch because they've had layoffs, they're losing appeal, marketshare, and so on. So we put two and two together and assumed that they would rush to make an early Android device to...

More Bad News From Motorola

Yeah, we know. Another post about Motorola? Sorry but we still can't get over how badly Motorola bungled the whole situation in regards to Android and the immense consequence that their handset division is now facing. Engadget is reporting that 3,000 employees will be laid off and over two-thirds...

Motorola Android Device To Be Released Holiday 2009, BOOO!

Does Motorola offer any good news anymore? After confessing our love to Motorola amidst their job cuts and dreaming about the pairing of the Android OS with Motorola Design while they bleed money, we regret to inform you that the much anticipated Motorola Android Device won't be released until...

China Mobile & Lenovo Launching Android Device in China Early 2009

We at Android Central only knew of Lenovo as the maker of laptops and tablets. Admittedly, we're a fan of their PC work but we had no idea that they were big time makers of cell phones and smartphones in China. Until now. China Mobile and Lenovo will team together to launch an Android Device for...

China's TechFaith Wireless Communication Technology just announced that they have finished developing a device prototype for Android.

Motorola Confirms Android Phone In The Works

When we first reported about Motorola upping their Android Team to 350 people from 50, we were unsurprised. Motorola needs Android to continue being a player in the cell phone industry. So now that official word comes that Motorola is going to make Android devices, how does Android Central feel?...

Motorola Building 350-Person Android Team?

Having not been able to capitalize on the success of the original RAZR (has it been 4 years already?), Motorla is obviously in need of some shaking up. With sales declining and fewer and fewer capable models left in the pipeline, it should come to no surprise that Motorola is betting on the...
