Android OS Prompts Motorola Shakedown

According to this morning’s Wall Street Journal, Motorola’s co-CEO Sanjay Jha said that the company will take Android far beyond next year’s purported Motorola Android phone release and focus on the Google-developed operating system for the long haul.

Right now Motorola uses seven different platforms for all of it’s phones, but thanks to continued losses, they’ll shift to a focus on Windows Mobile for business-oriented smartphones, their proprietary P2K OS for low-end handsets, and Android for everything else.

While this hasn’t been officially verified yet, I think it would be a smart move on Motorola’s part if they ever want to be an industry leader again.  Of course, it’ll take more than a product shakeup to restore their dominance.  The company is also rumored to be shaking down their employee lineup a little more, after 7500 jobs have already been cut this year.

All of this will either be confirmed or denied tomorrow when Motorola announces their 3rd quarter earnings.
