Goodbye Moto?

A Motorola has been my first cell phone around ’99 or 2000. It looked like the one on the picture above. It barely fit into the pocket of my jeans but it had WAP (wireless Internet if someone doesn’t remember – most WAP sites are still up BTW).  Since then I never bought a Motorola cell phone again but the company was pretty successful with their phones later and even kept up with Apple by releasing the Droid smart-phone.

Now I read that the company is being re-organized petty heavily and that parts have been sold to Nokia. Is this just a way of streamlining the business or the beginning of the end?

Q3A on Your Nokia Phone

Remember the times where you had to buy a new Pentium-II or III PC to get Q3A to run well? Now you can play it on a phone. Amazing!
