No more cell phones from Motorola?
By Marguerite Reardon, CNET News.com
Feb 01, 2008

news analysis Maybe Carl Icahn was right about Motorola.

The company, which practically invented the cell phone market in the '80s, is considering spinning off its beleaguered handset business in an effort to revive the business, Motorola said Thursday.

In a press release, the company said it was considering a "structural realignment" to kick-start its mobile-device business, which has seen its global market share plunge to 12 percent from more than 20 percent market share a year ago. The main problem has been Motorola's inability to come up with new handsets to follow the once highly popular RAZR.

Last week, the company told investors it would take longer than expected to turn around its troubled cell phone business. And it warned that revenue and market share would likely decline further in the first quarter.

Icahn, the activist investor who has been critical of Motorola's management for more than a year, has encouraged the company to break up, separating the handset division.

"For many months I have been publicly advocating the separation of Mobile Devices from Motorola's other business," he said in a statement. "And I am pleased to see that Motorola is finally exploring that proposal."

Icahn, who lost his bid to win a Motorola board seat last year, said Thursday he still plans to go through with yet another proxy fight this year to win board seats.

"We have previously informed Motorola that we expect to run a slate of directors for the upcoming annual meeting," he said. "And this announcement by Motorola will not deter us from that effort--we believe Motorola is finally moving in the right direction, but certainly still has a long way to go."

Wall Street reacted positively to the news of a possible split in the company and boosted Motorola's share price 10 percent to US$12.65 in after-hours trading. But some industry analysts say that simply selling the handset division could be a bad idea for the company, which has spent billions of dollars over the past several years building its consumer brand.

"The question is if you sell off the handset business, what's left?" said Iain Gillott of iGillott Research. "It doesn't make sense for them to have spent so much money developing their consumer brand if they're going to use it to sell set-top boxes and emergency radios."

One-hit wonder?
Four years ago, Motorola struck gold with its popular ultrathin RAZR, which launched in 2004. That product helped Motorola increase its market share from 15 percent to 23 percent by the end of 2006. But after the phone became available on all four major cellular networks in the US and the company cut prices, its margins plummeted. Since then, Motorola hasn't found a high-end handset to replace the RAZR and boost revenue and profit margins.

While the RAZR franchise has been viewed as a tremendous success, executives have been criticized for allowing the product to become commoditized and for not coming up with another hit phone. The company's poor performance ultimately led to the ouster of CEO Ed Zander in November. He was replaced earlier this month with Greg Brown.

Meanwhile, Motorola has tried to revive its lineup of phones. In May it introduced several new products that added functionality such as 3G, or third-generation, network support and multimedia features. But most of the products were nothing more than souped-up versions of devices the company had already been selling.

The final straw seemed to come last week when the company reported an 84 percent decline in fourth-quarter profit, due mostly to sharp declines in its handset business.

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., – January 31, 2008 – Motorola, Inc.

HTC share of Windows Mobile smartphone segment declining
Daniel Shen, Taipei; Steve Shen, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 29 January 2008]

High Tech Computer (HTC) has lost the title as the global top ranking vendor of Windows Mobile-based smartphones (excluding touch-screen models), with its share of the segment falling to below 30% currently, trailing behind Motorola and Samsung Electronics, according to internal data from Microsoft.

Motorola, Samsung and HTC have been competing fiercely in the segment with each vendor accounting for a 20-30% share globally, with Motorola now leading the contest with a small margin, the data showed.

Previous data indicated that HTC topped the segment with a market share of over 50% in Microsoft's fiscal 2007 (from July 2006-June 2007).

However, HTC still retained the number one title in the Windows Mobile-based PDA phone segment, accounting for nearly a 50% share, according to the same data.

Palm was ranked second in the Windows Mobile PDA phone segment with a market share of over 10%, followed by Samsung and Asustek Computer with each accounting for less than a 10% share, the data indicated.

HTC is expected to see its share in the Windows Mobile PDA phone segment continue to erode since a number of vendors, including Motorola, Samsung, LG Electronics, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Palm, Asustek, E-Ten Information System and Gigabyte Communications, are all planning to launch touch-screen PDA phones, according to sources in Taiwan's handset industry.

Analisa bisa saja benar dan bisa saja salah.

Gue kagak suka dengan "Carl Icahn" walaupun dia investor terbesar di Motorola.
Yang perlu di ingat tuch "Carl Icahn" kalah di dalam pemilihan memperebutkan jabatan "CEO Motorola" antara "Ed Zander" dengan "Carl Icahn"; sama hal berpolitik. Yang kalah pasti akan mencoba memberikan rumor-rumor yang tidak mengenakkan. Sejak awal sebelum pemilihan "CEO Motorola" yang lalu; "Carl Icahn" sudah melontarkan rumor-rumor bahwa "Motorola" akan di jual ke "Ericsson" tapi kenyataannya pihak "Ericsson" tidak menanggapi rumor bahkan menyangkalnya. Investor-investor "Motorola" yang lainnya pun tidak menanggapinya dan akhirnya terpilihlah "Ed Zander" yang optimistic terhadap "Motorola". Sejak "Q2,2007"; "Ed Zander" sudah menyatakan bahwa "Motorola" akan mendapatkan "profit" di mulai pada tahun 2008.

Kalo lihat ke belakang yaitu pada saat pertama "Ed Zander" sebagai "CEO Motorola"; pada saat itu juga pendapatan "Motorola" mengalami penurunan. Gue sangat "optimis" kalo "Motorola" akan mengalami pendapatan yang meningkat.

Penjualan Anjlok
Unit Bisnis Ponsel Motorola Di-Spin Off
Dewi Widya Ningrum - detikinet

Jakarta - Sukses dengan ponsel Razr tak berarti membuat Motorola meraup banyak untung. Motorola bahkan akan memisahkan unit bisnis ponselnya karena unit bisnis tersebut terus merugi.

Pemisahan itu adalah satunya-satunya pilihan yang harus dilakukan Motorola. Dengan restrukturisasi tersebut, diharapkan unit bisnis ponsel Motorola bisa lebih kompetitif.

Chief Executive Motorola Greg Brown mengatakan divisi ponsel perusahaan mengalami tekanan kompetisi yang berat dari para rivalnya seperti Samsung Electronics dan Apple. Pada kuartal empat 2007 lalu, profit Motorola turun drastis menjadi US$ 111 juta, dari sebelumnya US$ 523 juta. Penjualan ponselnya pun turun 38 persen.

"Divisi ponsel perusahaan mengalami kerugian yang cukup signifikan dalam jangka panjang," kata Ping Zhao, senior analis CreditSights, yang dilansir money.cnn.com dan dikutip detikINET, Jumat (1/2/2008).

Dengan memisahkan unit bisnis ponsel tersebut, Zhao menilai Motorola akan menjadi lebh stabil, meski laju pertumbuhanya menjadi lebih lambat. Repositioning unit bisnis itu diharapkan dapat mempercepat pemulihan finansial perusahaan. Motorola belum bersedia menjelaskan langkah spesifik yang akan dilakukannya terkait pemisahan unit bisnis itu sampai dewan direktur menyetujui rencana pemisahan tersebut. ( dwn / dwn )

Tenang aja... Motorola handset baru akan mendapat profit pada tahun 2008 dan lagi Motorola sudah mempersiapkan handphone-handphone andalannya.



Itu khan berita berawal dari Motorola Official Website lalu diterjemahkan oleh website-website yang memang anti Motorola menjadi berita yang tidak mengenakkan yaitu akan di jual. Coba dech baca lagi. Gue kagak yakin kalo "Greg Brown" akan semudah itu menyetujui untuk menjual Motorola. Kalo "Greg Brown" menyetujuinya maka otomatis "Greg Brown" tidak akan bekerja lagi pada Motorola karena Carl Icahn sudah punya rencana untuk mengganti "CEO Motorola" dengan "CEO Carl Enterprise".

Menurut gue sich sebagai EigaJapan / MotorolaFreak; Motorola Mobile Division tidak akan di jual / merger; palingan juga joint venture seperti Motorola dengan Kodak yang menghasilkan Motorola Kodak Camera Phone. Begitu Motorola Mobile Division dipisahkan dari Motorola; tanggapan dari masyarakat dan analisis cukup positif; itu pun ditandai dengan naiknya harga saham Motorola. Banyak yang optimis kalo Motorola Mobile Division akan bertumbuh; dengan dipisahkannya Motorola Mobile Division dari Motorola maka bisa lebih fokus ke Motorola Mobile Division.
