Motorola Brand Name To Be Phased Out

Kind of sad, no? The good news is that the original name won’t be completely lost, as it’s being merely shortened by the decision makers at Lenovo.

The phase-out is notable because Motorola once represented the pinnacle of wireless technology. The company did invent the cell phone, after all. At a point in the mid-2000s, you couldn't turn your head without seeing the ultrathin Razr flip phone, which came with a "Hello, Moto" ringtone. Older folks will remember the Motorola DynaTAC as one of the first true mobile devices.
