Not long ago, Motorola’s survival in the mobile phone market was at stake and the odds were firmly stacked against it. But it found its savior late last year in the form of its maiden Android-based phone the Droid, which has helped it turn the tide, if not restored it to glory.
Now, a deeply indebted Motorola considers it sacrilege to even think beyond Android. This was quite evident at a recent conference where the company’s co-CEO Sanjay Jha dedicated a large part of his talk to Android. He revealed that his company is keen on entering the tablet market with an Android-based product.
“I think that a companion 7- to 10-inch device in a home will become very important, [both] as an augmentation to your TV experience [and] also as a way of walking around the house and streaming TV to that device,” Jha said. “I think we’re very focused in participating in this convergence that’s coming between mobility and home, and I think you will actually see some products from us in a very short period of time.”
