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.

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.

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...
