Photos and info on the dizzying array of new phones coming from Motorola this fall.

Motorola is gearing up for the fall season with an impressive new line of phones. The company recently revealed information on a number of new models that will join the already-large stable of phones slated to be released in the coming months.
Motorola announced most of its 2003 models back in January, including such highly-anticipated models as the V600. However, many of those models have yet to hit the market. Lack of new models on store shelves hurt the company during the first half, especially in the second quarter, when the company's market share fell to 13.4 percent, down from 17.4 percent a year earlier.
But the company appears to be poised for an aggressive comeback in the second half. At its annual analysts meeting last week, Motorola revealed details on a number of new models slated to be released by the end of the year. Combined with already-announced models, the lineup means the company will be releasing an unprecedented number of new models within a very short period of time.
Read on for pics and info on the most exciting of the new models!
