Android saves Motorola’s day

by Kristen Nicole

Motorola (MOT) saw a profit for the first time in three years, according to its earnings call yesterday afternoon. The handset maker reported a $3 million operating profit for the third quarter, for its mobile unit alone. Motorola shipped more than nine million phones in Q3, with at least a third of those being smartphones.

So smartphone sales bring Motorola glory, as it works its way back up the food chain. Thanks to its Droid, Droid X and recently released Droid 2, faith is being restored in the manufacturer. In this case, Android saved the day, and we’re seeing a similar affect for underdog HTC (2498.TW).

myTouch 4G?

It seems everyone wants to benefit from Android’s Midas touch. There are a number of new handsets rumored to launch in the coming weeks before Black Friday, including the T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK) myTouch 4G. An unboxing video reveals an unreleased device with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera and a 3.8-inch touch screen display. Expected in stores November 3rd, this will be the latest in the myTouch lineup.

HD browsing

Mobile browsing also continues to gain traction, with a number of developers competing for the top spot. Dolphin released an update to its HD browser for Android this week, bringing an enhanced media experience straight from your phone.
