Smartphone manufacturer Lenovo will dump the Motorola name after acquiring the US company two years ago.
Motorola were pioneers of the mobile phone industry, creating the first mobile phone the “Motorola brick.” Motorola also brought us the first flip phone and the iconic Razr. Motorola had seen a bit of a revival in the past two years, the release of the Moto G saw great success with 10 million units sold, up 118% year-on-year.
Motorola chief operating officer Rick Osterloh told Cnet that “we’ll slowly phase out Motorola and focus on Moto”. Which causes uncertainty over the futures of the Moto G and E series.
We reviewed Motorola’s latest release the Moto X Force, check the review out in our next issue which goes on sale on the 14th of January.
