Motorola for sale?

Is the end in sight for Motorola?

See .

When I was at work (I retired 7 years ago) Motorola was our greatest rival. Since coming into existence in the early years of this century, my own company Sepura has been in profit every year. The demise of Motorola is a salutary lesson never to be complacent. How the mighty have fallen.

    Google sold Motorola to the chinese a couple of years ago. They’ve pilferred what they wanted and are now dumping the remnants of a once great company.
