Motorola just dropped their Q3 earnings report on investors and analysts, and CEO Sanjay Jha is promising that the trend started by their first quarter of growth since 2006 will carry over into Q4 with plans to move over 5 million smartphones. Of course, a big aspect of their smartphone strategy is the Motorola Droid brand in conjunction with Verizon, and Jha says the company will continue to invest in that franchise going froward, starting with the Motorola Droid Global and Droid Pro and pushing on into 2011.
Jha also mentioned (though indirectly) that the company will “cope [with the competitive pressure of a Verizon iPhone] in good ways” and briefly touched on Moto’s tablet plans without providing any information that isn’t already known.
Certainly isn’t surprising that the brand that has helped spur on the success of Android and also catapult Moto back into the upper echelon of mobile devices will push on in the new year. We personally can’t wait for the first LTE Droid and the fabled Tegra 2 device in the pipeline (we can only hope they are one in the same).
