While news that the Motorola DROID BIONIC and other upcoming high-end devices from the manufacturer will get the same Webtop treatment as the newly released Atrix 4G might have been the juiciest bit of information to emerge from Sanjay Jha’s talk with investors at Morgan Stanley, a few smaller noteworthy points emerged.
The first concerns the path to Gingerbread upgrades for current Motorola handsets. While exact timeframes and specific devices were not discussed, Jha said that last year was an important in helping Moto hone their efforts in getting Android updates out in a timely fashion. He noted that Motorola was among the first to release Froyo upgrades, and plans to be among the first to release Gingerbread. We haven’t seen much news on this front recently, aside from a few pics of the Droid X with Gingerbread on board.
The other point of interest concerns Motorola’s attempts to win over an enterprise audience. While talking to investors about the measures Moto is taking to aid in device security, Jha mentioned some of the larger companies that have bought into Motorola hardware for business use. One of their biggest customers for the Motorola XOOM, he said, was Google. That may or may not mean many Google employees get a free XOOM to go along with their paychecks. Jealous.
