Motorola reports massive Q4 losses

Motorola re-engineered its devices around the Android two years ago and achieved some success among the patriotic Americans with its Droid devices.

But it couldn’t sustain that limited success and the latest results reflect on that.

Q4 of 2011 saw Moto ship 5.3 million Android phones and tablets for a total of 10.5 million devices. This is down from the 11.3 million figure it achieved in Q4 of 2010. The tablet sales were pathetic with only 200,000 Xyboards and Xooms being sold in Q4 of 2011.

Motorola shipped 42.4 million devices in 2011, up from 37.3 million in 2010. $13 billion revenue for 2011 delivered a loss of $249 million compared to $11.5 billion revenue and $86 million loss in 2010.

Industry experts are waiting to see its situation when it is acquired by Google for $12.5 billion. In the meanwhile Motorola will be hoping for good sales of its revived Razr series.
