Sanjay Jha – CEO of the newly-formed Motorola Mobility – delivered a keynote speech yesterday at the Cedit Suisse 2010 Technology Conference where he covered a lot of topics. Most of them pertained to Motorola Mobility’s plans going forward, as we would have guessed, but he dropped a few nice confirmations: yes, they will have a 4G phone early next year. It’s worth noting that the question didn’t mention phones specific to Verizon’s newly-launched 4G LTE network – nor did his answer sway toward Big Red – but we can’t imagine they won’t have an LTE-enabled phone with them.
He also said that a developing “competitive dynamic” going on at Verizon for the first quarter of 2011 would hurt Motorola’s Q1 performance. There’s only one “dynamic” we could think of going to Verizon that would have Motorola shaking in their boots. It starts with A and ends with “pple”. (Was that too obvious?) Anywho, Motorola’s not letting that slow them down and we’ll still see the crop of high-end tablets and smartphones that we expect to see, including the Motorola Olympus superphone bound for AT&T.
