10 Phones That Marked The Path of Motorola

Perhaps we can sing that “Hello Moto” before one of the handsets from Motorola, which follow the slogan even “by Lenovo”. Since yesterday denomination is integrated under its last buyer to become terminals “Motorcycle by Lenovo” designation for high-end terminals, leaving the current Vibe to lower ranges smartphones.

It is a last phase of the drafts that the Chinese brand initiated following the purchase of Motorola in 2014. A step which, although it was predictable, surprised given the reputation of the brand Motorola keeps despite being under others in his later years. In fact it has been when it resurfaced in the panorama of phones thanks in part to its history. What have been the more important terminals in the Motorola pre-Lenovo?

The pioneers of mobility: the was pre-smartphone

To reach the first phone of the company go back several decades in time, but in fact the company had already a long way in technology. The name of Motorola is the fusion of “motor” (car) and “wave” (sound), and started in the 1920s with the manufacturing of radios and walkie-talkies (for WWII), which would be the germ of phones.

Flirtation with phones in the form of experiment would not come until the 1970s to make its first launch came 13 years later. Thus, in 1983 was to know the Motorola DynaTAC 8000 X, the first commercial mobile phone from the history, facing a user with need for continuous communication for his work (business) and became a representative of this profile, especially for a nothing affordable price of $3,000.

In 1989 Motorola managed to reduce the size of that huge DynaTAC quite with the MicroTAC 9800 X, a phone that introduced a CAP in its design with microphone inserted to covering the keyboard the keyboard. This (still analog) phone came to mark subsequent terminals, to the iconic Motorola StarTAC design guidelines.

This phone, introduced in 1994, was a great success of the company and consolidated as one of the most representative of this, both due to its characteristics and design. In fact we are talking about him to remember the most important shell-type phones to be considered the first clamshell phone. The StarTAC features included:

  • 88 grams
  • Vibration: it was the first to include this, so that the user had the option to your calls not synthesist and only vibrasen.
  • Possibility of including a lithium battery
  • SMS (only in the later digital models)

A few years later the brand lost some bellows in the market and in fact The title of manufacturer of phones-Nokia snatched him with more sales in 1998, seating an empire that would also go to the history. However, mark reaffirmed its role as reference in mobile a decade later with the launch of the Motorola RAZR, repeating in design, being the first model in this series the V3. This became history best selling shell-type phone with 130 million units sold.

The awakening of the force: the devious era of smartphones

The discontinuation of the RAZR coincides more or less with the birth and expansion of smartphones, pushed by the presentation of the iPhone in 2007. However, it was not until 2008 when Motorola went to work with Android. Following the launch of Motoblur, an own interface that was most critical to success, Motorola launched the Motorola Droid, by an agreement between LucasFilm and the operator Verizon, with Android 2.2 and the following features:

  • 3.7 inch 854 x 480 resolution touch screen
  • Physical QWERTY keyboard
  • 3430 Texas Instruments OMAP processor
  • WiFi
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • 3.5 mm audio jack
  • Removable battery

After this release, Motorola had a first business decline that ended with the subdivision into two parts: Motorola Solutions (business part) and Motorola Mobility (mobile division). In August 2011, the latter was bought by an already very powerful Google 12,000 million dollars. And the fruits of this merger would light two years later with a new generation of Motorola who would be their revival in the field of smartphones, the first generations of the G Moto and Moto X, which would replace the manufacturer on the map.

After its own Renaissance, Motorola was responsible for making the Google phone in 2014, Although this was not exactly a springboard by the reception the ginormous Nexus 6 Finally. An unfortunate release per is that born already with the duty of improving a relatively successful LG hand 5 Nexus.

Thus, despite the success of the Moto G, which staggered the panorama of the more affordable range, not finished business ups and downs and in 2014, Google malvendía the division Mobility to Lenovo 2.910 million, starting the last phase of Motorola as a brand. From that time until the present time the company has launched two generations of bike G and X, as well as a third series below, the E bike. On the other hand, the name Droid has followed coexisting although for terminals in the United States, among which we can highlight the Turbo Droid.

The future of bike by Lenovo

After the latest releases under the original name of the brand, it remains to be seen if the nomenclature change favors or acts against the sale of future handsets from Motorola, Lenovo, even more so when in mid-2015, 42% of phones selling Lenovo were Motorola. A manufacturer whose situation seemed not too encouraging in the last economic balance introduced last November.
