Confirmed: Motorola to focus on Android handsets in 2009

androidlogoDuring Motorola’s earnings call this morning, chief executive Sanjay Jha finally admitted Motorola will be primarily focusing on Android handsets in 2009.

From Seeking Alpha:

“As you know, Windows 6 series is available in 2009 and as compared to Android, we believe in 2009 Android is more competitive; more of our effort and focus in 2009 is going to Android, but in 2010 when Windows 7 will become available, we will then participate in a more focused way in Windows Mobile 7 in 2010.”

Thank you Sanjay.  It has been widely believed that Motorola would focus mainly on Android phones this year, especially after a slew of Windows Mobile developers were recently laid off in Plantation, Florida.

Up until now, Motorola spokespeople have beat around the bush and denied, denied, denied.  But I suppose a denial isn’t exactly a lie, especially as Jha pointed out that once Windows Mobile 7 comes to life, the company may change its focus again.
