When Nokia and Motorola merge, the next round of tech will be about the world.
But that’s not to say there’s a simple solution to the smartphone wars.
As a world-class manufacturer, Motorola will have to reinvent itself to stay relevant in the 21st century, but the company has already made strides towards that goal, having unveiled a new smartphone in September and introducing a new version of its Moto X in October.
The company has also taken some steps to strengthen its ties to the US market with the purchase of Motorola Mobility in April and the purchase in June of the American manufacturer’s US mobile division.
While there are still plenty of other companies that have a stake in the global smartphone industry, the fact that Nokia is also planning to buy Motorola Mobility is a significant boost to its bid to dominate the market for Android phones.
And with Motorola’s Moto X and its Android-based Android Wear OS being both hugely popular with consumers and hardware makers around the world, it appears that the future is looking bright for Motorola Mobility.
