The global meltdown has affected the entire world and there is hardly a business that has escaped the after effects. The impact is visible on almost all companies and that includes mobile-phone manufacturers too and hence Motorola might have postponed its handset spinoffs and Android phones till the next holiday season. After bagging a huge loss of $397 million and a sharp drop in sale figures in its third quarter earnings, Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha has stated that no Android phones will be launched until the holiday season of 2009. That is more than a year from now and all the Motorola fanboys will have to sit back. As per the company’s co-CEO’s statement, it seems, to recoup heavy financial loses, Motorola is focusing on phones based upon Windows Mobile.
Not only that, the manufacturer’s plans to launch new smartphones running Windows Mobile platform, including all new models, are on the receiving end.
