Motorola's design and innovation pay off.

Bruce Nussbaum

Any CEO or manager still doubting the power of design and innovation in the marketplace should take a look at Motorola's strong third quarter showing. A couple of years ago, Motorola was being talked about in hushed tones, another Polaroid perhaps. But with the introduction of the Razr cell phone, the company's profits and prospects has soared. Kudos to CEO Ed Zander for turning Motorola around and for returning the company to its innovation and design roots.

I have a project that adds a QWERTY keypad to a Motorola RAZR V3-like phone - http://www.freewebs.com/compact_keyboard. It has a full compliance to the US keyboard layout that enables localization for all languages (including even Chinese like this - http://www.customkeys.com/catalog_pages/FLK_Chinese.html). Moreover, it has a system of comfortable one-hand typing like on a standard keyboard, the first one since two-thumb typing on Treo and Blackberry devices and thumb typing on Motorola Q. Best regards, Mihail.
