Motorola is preparing to take more dramatic steps to rescue its troubled Mobile Devices Division. On Tuesday, all 121 members of staff at its Birmingham facility were told that they were “at risk of redundancy”. Motorola now plans to make half of that number redundant and has said that it is considering closing the site…
Last night, whilst all the ‘slebs were walking the red carpet in Leicester Square showing off their designer frocks for the premiere of The Bourne Ultimatum, a few of us lucky Shinies got to go to an advance screening with Motorola at the BAFTA down the road. No fancy dresses for us, we all wore jeans. And boy, were we impressed, and I don’t even LIKE Matt Damon. (Said in Team America-esque voice, obviously).
One thing you’ll notice minutes into the film is the blatant product placement – director Paul Greengrass didn’t even try to hide it. Like the good little Tech Digester that I am, I sat there with a pen and paper and scrawled down every techie product placement I saw in the film, whether used by Jason Bourne himself, CIA agents, hit-men, or just billboards seen in shots.

Read on to see how Moto’s slimline new phone stacks up against two of the most-hyped competing handsets: Nokia’s N95 and Apple’s iPhone.
The original RAZR was an iconic mobile phone, as you’ll know if you’ve ever had to spend an evening in the pub with a proud owner rambling on about its military-grade laser-etched keypad.
Motorola today presented its 2007 range of mobile devices – presumably the ones that CEO Ed Zander said would be “wickedly cool” – and it includes the RAZR2 that claims cutting-edge innovations in style, design, multimedia, messaging, and communications.
The RAZR2 is 2mm thinner than its predecessor, with seamless casing, vacuum metal finishes, and chemically hardened glass including the largest external display in its class.
