Fewer Phones for Motorola Mobility This Year |Mobile News

Motorola’s CEO Sanjay Jha announced that the company plans to have fewer smartphone for this year. He clarifies in CES 2012 that the company will focus on smartphones to have better performance.

“There’s recognition of a lot of good ideas, but none have broken through. We’re going to present fewer ideas, but we’re going to push them more.” he said.

Last week, Motorola Mobility was informed to have lower income by the third quarter along with weaker smartphone sales. After Google bought the Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion, the company have been struggling over the past years that include product delays and half-hearted welcome to its first tablet.

“Over-choice hasn’t helped drive the marketplace,” Jha said.

Jha admitted that their Droid Razr was too expensive that lessens their buyers in the marketplace. Motorola promised to have the Verizon for $199.99 and $299.99 introduction price for Droid Razr Maxx.

The Xoom tablet was believed as overpriced after its release earlier this year and XyBoard was also believed expensive after the release of Xoom tablet. Jha confirmed the issues, he also stated that some factors that cause the tablets to fail the market is that the carriers are still figuring out the tablet market and they are indolent to offer many subscribers for the products. He also justifies that their WI-FI only tablets succeeded and in that it were purchased by large businesses rather than individuals.

Carriers will offer shared data plans this year as said by Jha that believes to sell out more devices promptly.

Jha also talks about the concern of WebTop Laptop-dock accessory for smartphones. Though it was expensive but the feature they believe has potential.

“We believe in the idea,” Jha said.

Jha also admitted that they were hoping to succeed with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich may change and improve the products while having an Intel Chipset code-name Medfield this year.
