I've been always a motofan. and I am from south east asian region. when moto left our place, i still bought moto phones thru the net and up to now i do. Never had a problem with the durability on any of my phones. So this move isn't really a factor to me :-D kudos
Motorola's would have actually increased with Google branding. Sadly they are stopping in Asia which has a lot higher android market than America.
They just have to market their device better which wasn't happening in India & surely got a rise in sales.
Motorola shuts down operations in Asia Pacific
except in Australia and Korea
don't let geography get in the way of a sensational headline (or the truth for that matter) :)
AnonD-58527, 29 Aug 2012They never made a windows phone, so that's why they have sales problems. Posted from Lumia... moreThey aren't in trouble mate, they're only cutting some services to become stronger (now that is google managing)...but if they had a windows phone then they would be in a sales problem lol
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2012Does this mean we should stop buying any Motorola phone ? Strangly Motorola still doing big ad... moreNo man, they're only putting aside some services...what people should is still buying their producys if you like it...and RAZR MAXX is still de battery champion ;)
Thank God! At least folks will be spared from their horrible service.
chevdemard, 29 Aug 2012another Samsung's victim... after Nokia and Blackberry of course, and Sony after this...What?! Motorola isn't ending, neither SONY or Nokia man...they're only cutting a few places because is not needed for their plans...they're focusing in fewer devices making them better ;)
I love my Moto Razr, I know Motorola is far far better than any other mobile devices coz Mobile was invented by Motorola , anyway all the best and keep fight iPhone
Too sad to read this news. Moto is always a leader in mobility. Miss you Moto and wish you all the best for upcoming high end Android phone.

Does this mean we should stop buying any Motorola phone ? Strangly Motorola still doing big adv campaign for Razr Maxx in my country.
This is both good and bad new.
Good news because they would focus just on high-end phones which means better support, having in mind google acquired moto.
Bad news because I'm in Asia pacific. Sucks big time! I think the next Nexus would be a Moto.
just bought an xt910 for the wife a couple of months ago, and was planning to buy another for myself next week, it was by far so much more superior than what samsung, LG, htc, sony, was offering on the same price range.
is so much more functional than the iphone 4s even.
this news does not dampen my intent in the least bit.
really an upset NEWS for motorola lovers...that MOTOROLA is lacking of its expertizing....
That's sad, I was going to switch to Motorola from Sony.....at least Canada still carry...
