Not so fast…… this might be a good thing

As other have stated Motorola has been a leader in cell phone since the start. They made bag phone and then the Startack phones (which people still come into the store and tell me are the best things ever). Before the Razr phone were big and balky things. Moto made them cool. I know the Razr had there problem but they did sell over 50 million of them. Let’s think about that for a moment let’s say that 1% were bad, that would be over 500,000 phones. That’s more then some models sell. The Q did to the PDA that the Razr did to phones, show that a small PDA could work and would sell.

People come into my store and swear by Moto and will not buy anything but. The w755 has been one of are better seller for the last few mont...

I like the positive thinking however it's not realistic. If Motorola is not laying people off based on skill set, but if they are laying people off based on location(s), then they are losing quality people, hence they will not be delivering a simple, quality product. Besides, by the time they reorganize and focus on the 12 or so models, the competition will ship before they will and the cool factor is gone.

Sorry to sound negative. Just trying to be realistic. I am one of those who swear by Motorola as they make good stuff, on the whole.
