About Motorola Brand

Motorola started in Chicago, Illinois, as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1928. The company's first products were battery-eliminators, devices that enabled battery-powered radios to operate on household electricity. In 1991 Motorola demonstrated the world's first working prototype of a digital cellular system and phones using GSM standard in Hanover, Germany. In 1998, Motorola was overtaken by Nokia as the world's biggest seller of mobile phone handsets.

In the 2000s Motorola was among the leading cell phones manufacturers on the market. In 2003 Motorola introduced the world's first handset to combine a Linux operating system and Java technology with "full PDA functionality". The Motorola RAZR line sold over 120 million units, which brought the company to the number two mobile phone slot in 2005.

In 2010 Motorola sold its cellular-infrastructure business to Nokia Siemens Networks for $1.2 billion. Later, shares of Motorola were owned by Google and Lenovo corporations. The company lost its popularity in the mobile phones market. Their recent Moto E- and Moto G-series are not very popular, but still have new announcements and releases.
