Motorola Pledges Cheaper Android Phones

,----[ Quote ]
| Android smart phones. Cheap Android phones. Android phones on the
| Nextel/Boost iDen network. Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha said many of next year's
| Motorola phones will run the Google Android OS in a call with analysts today,
| continuing a big bet on the Linux-based system.

ZiiLabs Announces EGG StemCell Computer.

,----[ Quote ]
| Another Android-capable device comes down the line, but this one is different
| from anything currently out on the market. ZiiLabs created the StemCell
| computer to be an open standards development platform, capable of running a
| Linux distro or Android with equal ease. This ZiiLabs EGG is not a phone, but
| it can be upgraded with the proper chipset to become one.

Motorola smartphone gets widgety

| MotoMAGX stack. In fact, the Evoke QA4 appears to be the second Motorola
| phone after the Moto VE66 (pictured below, right) announced in November, to

What I dislike most about motorola and their marketing spiel
is they claim their kit is cheap
and yet when you go to get quotes or go to get some assistance
the guys you meet at the front door have no idea of Linux or open source
and talk the paytard talk and show very clearly no understanding how open
source gets supported and funded.
Mortorola is dead when comparing prices with Far East.
They are just not competitive on price or basic support
and their marketing spiel sucks because of the way they
talk and deal become very devious when you sit in front of them.
When you are tasked with having a straight faced talk
to get some projects off the ground, just being normal
and straight faced helps a lot guys!
Its your revenue you are kissing goodbye!
