Had a V50. Threw it at a wall in anger following an argument with my then partner.
It broke . . . the wall!
(the phone barely had a scratch)
Motorola made the first mobile phone.
However, motorola did not by themselves invent the mobile phone, several of companies were involved with that.
It's great to read all that motorola and pass through over the year. As much as a love the motorola phone and product i still have my motorola still going strong like the up's and down they had. Motorola Razor still going strong for all these year and still be my side.
Motorola made cracking processors without these we wouldnt of had great home computers and consoles in the 80s / 90s. The Commodore Amiga used motorola processors as did Sega in their Genesis (Mega Drive). They were a huge company and just fell short because of the economic crash in 1987 hit a lot of companies. Bravo Motorola for going from strengh to strength and good work GSMA, these are nice pieces the Sony one you did a while ago was also awesome. Could you do more? This is really informative especially to your younger viewers whom think Apple or Samsung are really just the big companies. There is more than meets the eye.
Thank you GSMARENA for bring back the beautiful memories.
I once used the Motorola RAZR mobile phone it was a great looking mobile phone with good productivity, and then i sell it after about one year, and now and after about 7 years I'm using Motorola MOTO G FIRST GEN. and I'm very happy using it, before have it I used many flagships, but this phone with Google support is amazing, and soon I will Upgrade to Moto X Second Generation, or Nexus 6, the best 2 companies from my point of view are Motorola and LG, and the emerging company is Huawei.
thank you GSMARENA, KEEP THE GREAT WORK, AND KEEP BRING BACK THE GOOD MEMORIES
this is a slap on ignorant people faces....saying that emerging companies are better than moto... they dont know what they are talking about... those one use tech alreadyused by giant moto.
