    perhaps you should throw away 95% of all of your electronic devices then ;-) they all probably have hidden/embedded wireless antennas just waiting to make them do their bidding! ;-)

    So what your saying is kind of a strip mining operation of one the best American companies we have left.

    "best" is subjective. Their hardware is quality, business practices? Not so much

    This is sad!

    Motorola has done so much for cell phones in its lifetime. The thought that it's going to be merged into Huawei is... oh lordy.

    From everything I've read/seen (was with Virgin Mobile for awhile), the Triumph is basically a rebranded X6. All that simply to show that Moto/Huawei have a relationship prior to now, even if it's a small one.

    interesting. The huawei feels soooo different from every Moto I've handled. The Moto phones, while I dislike their software now, have always been extremely solid feeling

    I wonder if they will keep the motorola brand name. While motorola isn't perfect and they've made some bad decisions (cough*motoblur*cough) motorola has been my prefered brand for years. I read that Huawei made a phone that is thinner than the droid razr. eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices It might be thinner but is the quality comparable to the droid razr and other motorola products. I was hoping google would release motorola phones with a user option to include or exclude motoblur. I'd love to see an official stock vanilla install on my droid 4 just to see if I prefer it to motoblur. At any rate google seems to love throwing us curve balls.
