Motorola is one of the few phone manufacturers that actually produces innovative hardware. Only one with big batteries, cool slim, stylish yet macho designs, and one to the few to actually still make decent QWERTYs. Unfortunately, the GoogTards have taken control and will destroy all innovation left in it in favour of their close-minded Californian loser mindset. A US-only focus has been the problem of Motorola, and GoogTards are just making this worse. I wish they would release more phones in Europe.

Wrong , the most rubbish copy in China is
only Samsung and Iphone , they never copy
Motorola , Nokia because they cant and for this brands the popularity in China is down, low.
Now have millions units copy Samsung S3 and
Note2 in China the biggest rubbish in all world and they are all with 2 SIM slots , for iphone is much better do not talk have with TONS copy units.

"According to sources familiar with the matter, Google is taking all the necessary steps to move Motorola's operations back to the United States."

If this is the case, then I'm ok with it.

Though it sucks for those layed off, from am American perspective this os quite commendable. Am American company should have its major operations in America, at the very least.

What a shame this company is dead now! I liked MAXX which was a beast and STILL destroys every other smartphone in battery department, Google want it to be only a local U.S. product.. RIP Moto
