Motorola ships over 10 million smartphones in Oct-Dec’14 quarter

Motorola New LogoMotorola seems to be well on its way to the glory days. The Lenovo-owned company shipped more than 10 million smartphones in the quarter ending December 2014.

This is the first time that Motorola has shipped so many smartphones in a single quarter. This number is particularly significant because Motorola operates a limited number of markets right now and it has just entered the world’s biggest smartphone market – China. So, we expect this number to grow even more quickly in the coming quarters.

“Motorola shipped more than 10 million units, up 118 percent year-over-year, adding US$1.9 billion to MBG’s revenues. Soon to re-enter China, Motorola is on track to be profitable within 4-6 quarters of close,” noted Lenovo in a press release.

According to Lenovo, the combined smartphone shipments of the Lenovo and Motorola brands account for nearly 6.6 percent market share.

Moto X (2nd Gen) gets 1 million pre-bookings in China

Motorola is yet to begin selling its smartphones in China and the company is already making waves. According to the company president Rick Osterloh, Moto X (2nd Gen) has received over a million pre-bookings and the number continues to go up. As we know that not all pre-bookings convert in real sales, but this is a good indicator of the company’s popularity in the Chinese market.

    lenovo should learn a thing or two from motorola and stop bundling bloatwares and unnecessary home baked apps to its mobiles. even their home launcher is crappy and is comparatively slow compared to android one handset both sporting exactly same h/w.
