The BusinessWeek 50 Ranking

Motorola

THERE’S NO secret to the spark behind Motorola’s sizzling success: It’s all about “RAZR and more RAZRs,” says CEO Zander. Fueled by the RAZR, the company shipped 146 million phones in 2005, up 40% over 2004. The growth has helped Motorola boost global market share from 15.4%at the end of ’04 to 19%, edging closer to industry leader Nokia Corp. To keep RAZR sales brisk, Motorola has introduced its phone in a variety of colors— black, gunmetal gray, magenta, and blue. At the same time, several new phones are hitting the market, including the SLVR and Q, svelte cousins of the RAZR. Zander hopes they’ll have the same sharp edge.
