Motorola Mobility Building Web-Based OS
Hedging its bet on Android, Motorola is looking for a way to have more control over its destiny.

has hired a number of experienced mobile and Web engineers from Apple and Adobe and is developing a Web-based mobile operating system as a possible alternative to Google’s Android software, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Asked to comment, Motorola did not deny the existence of the project but re-affirmed its interest in Android. “Motorola Mobility is committed to Android as an operating system,” a company spokesperson said via email.

Jonathan Goldberg, an analyst with Deutsche Bank in San Francisco, said that he too had heard Motorola was at work on its own operating system. “I know they’re working on it,” he said in a phone interview. “I think the company recognizes that they need to differentiate and they need options, just in case. Nobody wants to rely on a single supplier.”

Goldberg said it’s unclear how far along Motorola’s operating system effort is and how serious the company is in seeking an Android alternative. “They don’t want to give Wall Street and developers the impression that they’re going back to the Motorola of old where they’re working on 50 million operating systems at once,” he said. “They want to be financially disciplined about this.”

Over the past nine months, Motorola has been hiring engineering talent that would well-suited to create a new mobile operating system. Its team appears to include a significant number of ex-Apple and Adobe personnel, including Gilles Drieu, VP of software engineering at Motorola Mobility, Benoit Marchant, director of engineering at Motorola Mobility, and Sean Kranzberg, also a director of engineering at Motorola Mobility.

Drieu left Apple in March 2010, where he was the head of the company’s rich media and applications group. After a five month period without employment, he joined Motorola. His work with Web standards groups WhatWG and W3C and his Web-related patents suggest that he would be well-suited to lead an operating system development effort.

Drieu did not respond to an e-mailed request to comment or voicemail message.

Motorola’s focus on a Web-centric operating system may reflect uncertainty about Android arising from Oracle’s patent claims against Google. But building a new mobile OS around Web technologies is also eminently practical: There are a lot of Web developers already and there’s a lot of support in terms of tools and frameworks. The fact that HP paid $1.2 billion for Palm and its webOS suggests there’s some value in leveraging Web standards.

There may also be more immediate reasons for Motorola to look beyond Android. “Google is shooting itself in the foot,” said the person familiar with Motorola’s plans, citing what he sees as concerns about Android fragmentation, product differentiation, and issues related to Google’s support for its partners.

Now in its fifth year, Web 2.0 Expo is for the builders of the next-generation Web: designers, developers, entrepreneurs, marketers, and business strategists. It happens March 28-31 in San Francisco. Register now.

Motorola is still committed to Android, also making their own web-based OS
Taylor Wimberly on Mar 23 at 1:06 pm

Last year we reported that Motorola might be working on their own operating system when they acquired mobile platform company Azingo and now new reports confirm this is still their strategy. Thomas Claburn of InformationWeek reports that Motorola has gone on a hiring spree and picked up a number of experienced web engineers from Adobe and Apple in an effort to develop their own web-based operating system.

Jonathan Goldberg, an analyst with Deutsche Bank in San Francisco, also reported the same thing. In a phone interview with InformationWeek he said, “I know they’re working on it. I think the company recognizes that they need to differentiate and they need options, just in case. Nobody wants to rely on a single supplier.”

When asked to comment, Motorola did not deny the accusations. Their response was, “Motorola Mobility is committed to Android as an operating system.”

An unnamed person familiar with Motorola’s plans said, “Google is shooting itself in the foot.” Motorola has “concerns about Android fragmentation, product differentiation, and issues related to Google’s support for its partners.”

This news should come with little surprise as Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha previously hinted that he wanted to create his own operating system. In a Q1 2010 earnings call he said, “I’ve always felt that owning your OS is important, provided you have an ecosystem, you have all the services and you have an ability and the scale to execute on keeping that OS at the leading edge. And I continue to believe that at some point, if we have all of those attributes, that owning our own OS will be a very important thing.”

Just as Motorola is dual-sourcing their components from different hardware vendors, Motorola wants to have a second OS strategy just in case Android does not go the way they want.

Google and Motorola continue to remain close partners, so I don’t think we should have any fear that Motorola will abandon Android, but it is something to keep an eye on.

Motorola Mobility Kembangkan OS Berbasis Web

CALIFORNIA - Motorola Mobility kabarnya telah menyewa jasa sejumlah engineer berpengalaman dari Apple dan Adobe untuk mengembangkan sistem operasi mobile berbasis Web sebagai alternatif pengganti platform Android milik Google.

Selama sembilan bulan terakhir, Motorola memang berupaya menciptakan sistem operasi mobile baru. Tim untuk proyek itu disinyalir melibatkan beberapa mantan petinggi Apple dan Adobe. Termasuk VP software engineering di Motorola Mobility, Gilles Drieu, yang notabene adalah mantan petinggi Apple untuk rich media dan applications group.

Ketika dimintai komentar, pihak Motorola tidak menyangkal keberadaan proyek tersebut. Namun, mereka toh tetap menegaskan komitmen terhadap Android. "Motorola Mobility masih berkomitmen terhadap sistem operasi Android," jelas juru bicara perusahaan itu melalui email.

Analis untuk Deutsche Bank Jonathan Goldberg mengatakan, wajar jika Motorola berpikiran mengembangkan sistem operasi mereka sendiri.

"Saya tahu mereka tengah mengembangkan sistem operasi itu. Saya pikir, Motorola menyadari bahwa mereka harus melakukan diferensiasi dan mereka membutuhkan opsi, sebagai antisipasi. Tidak ada yang ingin bergantung pada satu supplier," papar Goldberg seperti dikutip Information Week, Rabu (23/3/2011).
