 MOTO Announcement

Motorola Plans Low-Cost Phone - Digits - WSJ: " . . . “One of the areas that we think is really open for Motorola is building high-quality, low-cost devices,” Woodside said at the time. “The price of a smartphone is $650? That’s not gonna persist.” Apple’s iPhones accounted for 52% of its revenue in its most recent quarter. Toni Sacconaghi, an analyst at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., estimates that the phone carries a gross profit margin of roughly 45%. Samsung derives two-thirds of its operating profit from its mobile business. . . . The new Motorola phone will have to compete with Apple’s and Samsung’s marketing muscle . . . The Moto G, which will be formally introduced at an event in Brazil on Wednesday . . . "
