Motorola, like Sony, focuses primarily on the Android platform for its smartphones. It does not produce any Windows Phone devices. The company has an excellent reputation and heritage in the mobile market, but in recent years has released significantly less devices in Australia than it does in many other markets.
Motorola Android phones
Most Motorola Android phones feature the company's Motoblur user interface, though recent releases have strayed away from this in an attempt to simplify the user experience.
One of the more interesting Motorola Android phones is the Defy, which is water, dust and shock resistant. Other models sold in Australia include the Atrix, which has a built-in fingerprint reader.
The current flagship Motorola Android phone is the RAZR. It features a dual-core processor, a large 4.3in display and an 8-megapixel camera. It is one of the thinnest smartphones in the world at just 7.1mm thick.
Motorola uses the popular Droid name in the US for many of its Android phones, but Australian models use different names. As an example, one of the most popular US Android phones was called the Droid but was labelled as the Milestone Down Under.
