    Introduction

    Motorola has one of the longest running histories in the communications market. They’ve lasted for almost 80 years, and made some startling breakthroughs. Recently, they changed the cell phone industry by launching the first “flip” phone, which really pioneered the giant mobile phone market that it is today. Since then, they’ve continued to make some big strides with mobile phones. They launched one of the first Windows Smartphones, the MPX220. They’ve given carriers, like Nextel, “walkie-talkie” functions, and most importantly to me, revolutionized cell phone design.

    Their first big design breakthrough was, of course, the “flip” phone. This really changed the way people actually interacted with their phones. The big cell phone brick era was over.

    The next significant design breakthrough was the Motorola v70, which took everyone completely by storm. The v70 didn’t “flip” open, but instead it turned open, making this phone one of the most beautifully-designed phones ever made. It was also priced that way; it originally cost over $500.

    Next was the Motorola v80. It didn’t make a dent on the market, as this was another novelty phone, but it was designed to be the successor to the aging v70, which lacked on the features. The v80 actually used the same OS as the v600, Motorola’s flagship phone. It featured a large color screen, Bluetooth, and MP3 playback, as well as a slew of other things. It was also designed much like the v70, as it turned open, instead of flipped open. This phone was also priced extravagantly; it costed around $500 when it was first released.

    That brings us to today. What’s next for Motorola? The Motorola Razr (also known as the V3 Razr) completely stunned all audiences with it’s incredibly thin and sexy design. Motorola knew instantly that this was their next novelty phone.
