Goodbye to the last real phone design company....

Motorola is (was) the only manufacturer that really designs new cutting edge phones, every other manufacturer designs me-too slabs in one color or another. Too bad, of course they didn't all fly but some did, thats the risk you take pushing the envelope but then they had to rest on their laurels after the RAZR.

They might still be around if they kept on engineering threir own stuff instead of trying to me-too everybody. They had fabs, made chips, designed cool stuff... now they are broken, splintered off and sold for scrap like the dies and presses in a old US factory. Globalization for the win.

What about the TAZR?

I'll never forget a moment of comedic brilliance on Phone Scoop years ago when a news article was posted on Motorola testing an electrical shock instead of vibration:
