When looking back on Motorola’s success (or shall we say, the lack thereof), it is plain to see that they needed to make something happen. Yes, they broke precious ground by giving us the RAZR, but since then, they have very little to show for their work. They have delivered a few thoughtful pieces of technology over the past couple of years, but to be honest, it looked to some like Motorola was taking a back seat to companies that it used to contend quite ferociously with.
But, as you probably did as well, I sat up on the edge of my seat to see the first commercial featuring the Droid. It was just a teaser, but my technological appetite was already craving it. In the commercials, you see a device that goes beyond normal smart phones. And, as you can also see, Motorola has teamed up with some very worthy allies in Verizon and Google. Verizon is one of the most liked phone networks in the world, and Google’s Android platform is breaking new ground every day, making Windows mobile fight for every last breath to stay alive. But, even when compared to the Blackberry and the iPhone, two of the leading smart-phones on the market, the Droid is intriguing enough to turn heads.
But, the big question remains – does the Droid have what it takes to beat out the competition, skyrocketing Motorola back to the top after years in the shadow? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure – when three companies of this size and with this kind of talent team up together, you know that something big is about to happen and that is exactly what the Droid is – it is big! It might be a small device, but I guarantee that if you do not already own one, you drool over them every time you see one – is that enough to put Motorola back on top? I guess only time will tell for sure….
