Motorola is “in talks with all large operators in U.S.” and is “fairly hopeful we will begin to engage with all the U.S. operators.” Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha’s comments, made at financial analyst conference, come only a few days after Motorola unveiled the Cliq, its first mobile phone powered by Android. The device stands out from the other Android devices on the market because Motorola has embedded its MotoBlur software into the operating system, and this new service aggregates photos, contacts, news streams, and other information from various online sources like Twitter, Outlook, Gmail, Facebook, and MySpace. The smartphone is slated to be released by the holiday season as an exclusive for T-Mobile.
Motorola is betting that its Android devices will help it mount a comeback, as the company recorded a net loss of $4.2 billion in 2008 primarily due to the struggles of its handset division.
