Motorola has expanded its use of chips from Qualcomm. Today Motorola committed to using certain Qualcomm UMTS 3G chips in phones set for release in late 2008 and throughout 2009. It also released quarterly results for the end of 2007. Sales of its handsets dropped by 38% compared to the same quarter in 2006 to 41 million. The handset division suffered a $388 million loss for the quarter. Motorola CEO Greg Brown said turning the handset business around will take longer than expected.

Moto on VZW
Moto grow some bal!s and tell VZW to take their crappy UI off your phones!
2. Moto's prices are extremely high as compared to the compitition
3. iPhone - a great deal of people moved over to AT&T to get it, leaving behind their Moto's with other carriers/AT&T
4. Sprint (/Nextel) is doing poorly (another news post about them cutting jobs here on PhoneScoop), which we all know Nextel only carries Moto products (which will change once they migrate from iDen).
If priced correctly, it could be a hot seller.
Also, as a dealer, I'd like you to know that the reason we don't sell many of your products is the ridiculous cost. The Razr MAXX - $370? Are you kidding me? The RAZR2 - $450!? The RIZR - $300! It costs too much money to keep more than a few in stock!
