Here we go. Perfectly timed with this week's festivities, Motorola's split, wherein one become two (a \"reverse Spice Girls,\" if you will) is crossing the final t's and dotting the remaining i's. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that by Tuesday, the Motorola stock ticker (MOT) will stop trading,

With the Motorola RAZR 2 set to drop on Sprint next week as the V9m, the handset will then be released on Verizon Wireless in September. No solid word on AT&T's official release date with the V9, though. How about Alltel? You'll see the V9m with them too, apparently (not sure when). Until then,

Motorola is rolling out its W218 uninspired-model-nameness handset to Hong Kong customers, who we fear will camp out at carrier locations to be the first one to snap up this first offering from the Motomobile line. To us, this entry-level unit is slightly reminiscent of the SLVR and L2, so again, Mo

There was a brief period in 2005 where Samsung leaped ahead of Motorola for the number two spot in global mobile handset sales, and the South Korean company may be poised to do it again in the second quarter of this year, which ends at the conclusion of June. Considering Motorola had 22 percent glob

Motorola's multimedia powerhouse \"kick slider\" Symbian handset has gotten reviewed over at mobile-review.com. We appreciate the extreme detail Eldar and his crew go into when reviewing handsets, and the Z8 review is no different. Although this recently announced handset is not yet available from wha

Motorola's KRZR K1 has landed at Canada's Rogers Wireless dressed all in red. The current \"it\" flip handset that comes in a rainbow of colors from Moto will set Canadian customers back about $150 (after instant rebate) and appears to be available now from Roger's consumer website. If you're a Canadi

Since Motorola needs to get back on the profit wagon, apparently the second largest mobile phone maker in the world believes cultural novelty may be the answer. Moto has just patented the \"Smellophone\" that packs a scent pouch which releases olfactory goodness when talking. The mobile's battery is p

Motorola's annual shareholder meeting took place last night, and from initial results, billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn was not elected to the company's board of directors. The fire between Icahn -- who owns 2.9 percent of Motorola's shares -- and MOTOMNGMNT has turned into a venomous circus

Billionaire financier Carl Icahn has a history of investing in companies where he can start exuding his influence for reform. The latest saga in Icahn's quest for corporate justice involves Motorola, where he wants CEO Ed Zander out (now). Motorola's troubles recently have been amplified in the fina

While Motorola suffers through some financial losses, it still plans on global wireless domination through strategic retail locations. Well, sort of. The company's flagship retail locations worldwide (like Nokia's in Chicago) have been joined by a new flagship store in New Delhi, India. The new loca

Shelled out for the newer Sprint Motorola Q with Windows Mobile and EV-DO goodness? That's great -- but don't let the next sentence steam you. Word on the street is that Sprint is not going to be providing a Windows Mobile 6 update for its version of the Q. It's already a bummer that Sprint's Q does

All things are rosy these days at T-Mobile (we think), as the GSM carrier has just landed the Motorola RIZR Z3 handset in that superb rose color. It's about to become available for purchase at T-Mo's website sitting alongside the blue version. If you like the KRZR but love the slider form factor, y

Since Motorola is having a bit of a rough time making a profit in the mobile handset business (the RAZR is sooo 2005), the world's second-largest cellphone maker has turned its attention to manufacturing action figures in order to boost profit margins. No, not really, but Motorola's new partnership

Looks like Canada's Telus Mobility got hooked up with the Motorola KRZR K1m in yet another shade -- this time, black. We've been waiting for a while to see when new K1m colors would start showing up, and here's a pretty decent first stab at black we think (or second stab, if you count Sprint's). Any

Our revealing pals over at the FCC have just approved the Motorola ic902 iDEN / CDMA hybrid handset, which will be the flagship hybrid sold by Sprint Nextel sometime very soon -- we hope. Specs so far include dual color displays with a nice 2.2 inch QVGA main diplay and stereo speakers for that onbo

MOTONAV -- what a natural name that is for a Motorola navigational product, eh? The world's second-largest handset maker wants to supply customers with even more navigational abilities right from the source it appears, as the manufacturer would like to sell you a Bluetooth-linked and satellite-aide

Just like the Sprint boys before them, it seems CDMA carrier Alltel will be getting the Motorola Q sometime soon based on the rather blurry (but legible) cellphone cam shot of the above box. Yes, that's the black version of the Motorola Q in a trademark purple Alltel box. Dates? We can only guess,
