    Motorola still has some issues

    This is an Article I got in a email from CNet News.. Tell me what you think about it!!!

    Motorola Mobility isn't quite in the clear yet.



    Motorola Droid Bionic as seen at CES. The phone was delayed because of problems with the 4G connectivity.

    That's the opinion of RBC Capital analyst Mark Sue, who says there are still a lot of issues surrounding the manufacturer of handsets and television set-top boxes. His biggest complaints: a slow move into the white-hot 4G LTE segment, too little product diversification at major customers Verizon Wireless and AT&T, and a slow product-development cycle.
    Delays in Motorola's LTE devices and its reliance on an aging product portfolio may be contributing to market share losses within the growing Android ecosystem," he said in a research note today.
    Motorola is in the midst of a turnaround, having split into two independent companies at the beginning of this year. Motorola Mobility zeroes in on mobile devices and TV-related equipment, while Motorola Solutions focuses on enterprise and government.
    Motorola Mobility Chief Executive Sanjay Jha brought the company back from the brink of bankruptcy with his early and aggressive embrace of Google's Android operating system, but Sue believes he needs to move faster now.
    Among the recent hiccups has been the delay in 4G LTE products. Sue said the company's decision to develop its own silicon for its LTE chipsets has put it behind key competitors such as HTC, Samsung Electronics, and LG Electronics, each of which have phones at Verizon. Motorola's Droid Bionic was one of four smartphones that showed up at Verizon's 4G LTE showcase at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, but it's the only phone that hasn't hit the market yet.
    4G LTE products for Verizon have sold extremely well. The HTC Thunderbolt sold 260,000 units in its first two weeks of sales, and analysts say the Samsung Charge has also been successful.
    Likewise, Motorola's promised 4G LTE connection for its Xoom tablet still hasn't arrived. Sue said he estimates Motorola has shipped 350,000 tablets in the quarter and expects a second-generation device in time for the holidays, including a 7-inch device.
    While AT&T threw its support behind Motorola's Atrix smartphone, Sue said Motorola needs to get more products to the wireless giant. Likewise, he said the company needs more product diversification at Verizon. He did note that there were some products in the pipeline, including a midtier device for Verizon, as well as the upcoming Photon 4G for Sprint Nextel and Triumph for Virgin Mobile.
    "Motorola in our view may need to quicken its product development to participate in this rising Android tide," Sue said.
    The company's health will become more apparent when it reports its second-quarter results on July 28.
    From an investment perspective, Sue said the stock looks cheap. But the concerns are holding him back.
    "For now, we're taking a 'wait and see' approach despite the depressed valuation," he said.

    This is interesting from the article:
    Among the recent hiccups has been the delay in 4G LTE products. Sue said the company's decision to develop its own silicon for its LTE chipsets has put it behind key competitors such as HTC, Samsung Electronics, and LG Electronics, each of which have phones at Verizon.
    If thats true I wonder if thats part of the reason for the switch from Tegra 2 back to OMAP? And the reason for the LTE delay for the Xoom? Motorola radios for phone reception are one of the best. Maybe Moto found a way to not have the battery drain so bad with LTE or are using 2nd gen LTE technology now?

    Motorola has LTE products out there, just not in the consumer market. They helped demo LTE in China last year. And did some demos in 2009. I wouldnt be surprised if Motorola equipment is being used by Verizon for LTE. They just need the Bionic to release and not have issues like the Thunderbolt did. The Charge and Revolution didnt have as many issues as the Thunderbolt. Hopefully the Bionic wont either.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    What this analyst Mark Sue is questioning is why Moto didn't join the bandwagon and release crap that reboots 8 times a day, and needs 3 charges to make dinner. That's all.

    The first Bionic design would have been all of those. Would that be suited for business, power-nerds, and professionals? No.

    Thus the complete Bionic redesign.

    I hope Motorola feels this way and knew that they needed to release a really great product. I agree that the other devices that are 4g on Verizon seemed rushed to the market and I believe Motorola decided that its better to have a really great product (Bionic) than to just be the first to the party.

    Its funny how they point the finger at motorola about having issues and then they merit someone like HTC for releasing a nightmare. It just shows that motorola does things the right way in my mind. Before they knew the bionic was not up to their standard so they went back to make sure it was right before releasing crap. Its all about reputation. How many times have you turned your back on a potentially good phone just because of the manufacturers name that was stamped on the housing.

    ^Samsung....lol

    Past experience has me leery of their phones. Same could be said for Motorola, HTC, LG, etc too. But so far Motorola has been good for me. Thats why I tend to stick with them.

    This^lol. Notice how they conveniently left out the numerous horror stories that are centered around the Thunderbolt's battery life (or lack thereof) and the reception issues.
