Motorola. A hop, skip and a sell off

Motorola have almost admitted defeat. Their announcement yesterday splitting off their handset division may protect the main company from becoming impecunious.

Perhaps shareholders may now reap some return on their investment when a company is brave enough to buy into Motorola’s IPR and brand.

Google, Apple and Microsoft come to mind as suitors, but more realistically the beau will be from Asia.

Perhaps CTIA, in two weeks, will give everyone a better feel for Motorola’s future.

Certainly Carl Icahn smells blood from the wounded company and may ultimately be responsible for its demise this year.
