Well that's all fine and good, but I believe that Motorola's overall strategy is flawed. You can't copy other business models without understanding your strengths and differences. That's what moto is doing now. That's where Samsung has excelled. Sure they copied designs from successful products out devices from their competitors, but they stood strong to their strengths and played their weaknesses to come up above everyone else. Samsung doesn't make as much profit from the US market as much as it makes everywhere else. That's why their products are released worldwide. That's why Sammy releases their phones in Asia and middle east and Europe before even talking to carriers in USA. They make their profits globally from a wide variety of devices. They always have and they always will. Motorola is exiting markets to better align itself to sell more phones than Samsung. That's a joke of a strategy. They are going downhill not up. So no, I have no doubt whatsoever if the rumours are true, I'm never going to be excited to buy a Motorola phone like I'm looking forward to what Sammy is going to come up with next.
Also Im sure all Motorola phones are going to be available only in the USA imprisoned to carrier deals. Far away from where the rest of the world lives.
