Motorola, the company which invented the cell phone, is going to see a major change.
As you may be aware, Lenovo acquired Motorola in 2014, from its former owner Google, which had originally acquired it in 2012.
Lenovo, isn’t doing away with Motorola, it will just have its brandname phased out, and no longer be used in its products, though its M logo will exist.
This is what Motorola’ Chief Operating Officer Rick Osterloh told CNET at CES 2016:
“We’ll slowly phase out Motorola and focus on Moto,”
This isn’t bad per se, at least as long as
Motorola, er… Moto by Lenovo, continues to produce great devices. The same thing happened with Nokia and Microsoft, until Nokia was, you know sold and forgotten. Well as long as it isn’t called Lenovorola, we are okay.
