During its recent earnings call, Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha said that the company plans to launch "at least 20 devices, including at least one direct-to-consumer device with Google." Google's direct-to-consumer model is what it is using to sell the HTC Nexus One. Motorola didn't confirm that its device will use the Nexus brand name, but it is a possibility. Jha also said, "We expect to ship between 11 million to 14 million smartphones over the course of the year, with smartphones accounting for over 50% of our total sales this year." All of the smartphones will be running Android, and about half of them will include MOTOBLUR. Motorola expects to sell fewer mid-range and entry-level devices throughout 2010. Jha also indicated that it will be improving MOTOBLUR. He said that Motorola will attempt to address the class of social networking users who need one device for both work and home needs. More security features will be built into MOTOBLUR, and it will also gain more multimedia powers, such as the ability to "share music, photos and other content in an interactive and dynamic way."

Well their sales haven't been the best in the recent years but that's because they haven't came out with the "next best thing" in a while, at least since the RAZR series. The Droid has now reshaped their company, and may have saved it.

Motorola is...
