Motorola Mobility spreading presence in China market

Telecom Lead Asia: Motorola Mobility is spreading its presence in the China market.

In 2012, Asian telecom markets will be the launch pad for
several smartphone players. China is vital to Motorola as the smartphone sector
becomes increasingly competitive in America and Europe.

Smartphones in 2012, while India will grab third spot by 2016. By 2016, India’s
country-level Smartphone market share will increase to 9.3 percent from 2.2
percent in 2011. Presently, India stands at 9th rank, which will improve
by 2016 at 3nd rank.

Besides increasing presence in China, Motorola recently
re-entered the Japanese market with the first 4G CDMA and WiMAX smartphone and
has made significant R&D investment in South Korea.

Motorola is also trying to grow in Singapore, South East
Asia, etc as the growth in these regions is pretty high.

“Asia Pacific in general is a very strong market
segment,” said Bin Shen, Motorola VP for international product management
at the Mobile Asia Expo in Shanghai.

Recently, China Telecom has launched Motorola Mobility’s RAZR V
XT889 and MOTOSMART MIX XT553. The Motorola RAZR V XT889 is an Android
4.0-powered smartphone. MOTOSMART MIX XT553 is a CDMA/GSM
