Background


Motorola created the mobile communications industry. They have invented most of the protocols and technologies that make mobile communications possible, including the first mobile phone, the first base station and pretty much everything else in between.


Today, Motorola is combining that pioneering spirit with a renewed commitment to consumers. That’s why their phones run on Android, the world's most popular operating system. Android brings the openness that shaped the Internet to the mobile world. That’s also why they are the first company to bring smartphone production back to the USA and allow people to customise their own phone design.


For the past 80 years, their engineers have thrived on invention; on finding new ways to solve problems. Today Motorola continue to look for new opportunities to change people’s lives for the better through the magic of mobility
