The New York Times reports Motorola is struggling.

The management of Motorola, the ailing mobile phone maker, has promised to turn the company around. Instead, Motorola’s troubles worsened yesterday when it announced that sales would fall considerably short of earlier projections and forecast a quarterly loss.

Mr. Zander has said Motorola’s struggles reflect a handful of factors, including a strategy of building market share by selling relatively inexpensive phones, instead of putting more emphasis on developing new high-end, highly profitable models.

This is what my mobile media team told them in February after the exploratory research. The idea that they were selling inexpensive phones hit a nerve.

I wonder what they’re doing with the concepts the CMU graduate design students gave them.

Interestingly, the articles does not mention the iPhone.
