Motorola Plans 7" and 10" Tablets and 4G Smartphones for Early Next Year

Co-CEO at Motorola Sanjay Jha unveiled Friday that the company will be adding its name to the long list of companies in the market with tablets early next year. In the very near future, Motorola plans on unleashing new 7-inch and 10-inch tablets. However, the company’s main focus in the mobile phone industry will still be smartphones.

As the keynote speaker for the Credit Suisse 2010 Technology Conference, Jha stated that he felt tablets were viable in not only the 7-inch size but also the 10-inch size. Sanjay was pretty vague on the details but given the success of the Droid, Motorola’s hottest selling smartphone, it is hard to imagine that these tablets would be running anything other than Android.

According to Jha, “I believe that tablets are a very important growth opportunity for us, but we have to differentiate. Software differentiation is going to be very important.”

Jha also went on to discuss that Motorola would field 4G devices early next year as well. However, Jha also mentioned that a new “competitive dynamic”, as he called it, would be developing at Verizon which is the primary U.S. carrier for Motorola devices.

The company recently announced that they would be splitting the company into two separate sub-companies. Motorola Mobility is said to be the company that will cover all of Motorola’s portable and home products, with Motorola Solutions being responsible for all the enterprise and networks. This split is scheduled for early next year as well, more specifically January. is news of, for and by SMBs!… The Small & Medium Business Magazine!
