Motorola lifted by sales of HD set-top boxes, no mention of shortages


Motorola exec Dan Maloney reported at the Mobile World Congress that HD set-top boxes accounted for 50% of sales for the Home and Networks unit of the company, and 27% of the company's overall revenue. We're certainly glad Motorola's happy about things, but we can think of a few HDTV owners still waiting for boxes from Cox and Verizon that might have a few questions. We don't know if the service providers simply didn't order enough, or if Motorola just can't make enough to satisfy demand, but hey Dan, next time how about taking care of the shortages before hopping a plane to Barcelona and bragging about more numbers? Thanks.
