Motorola shifts all new smartphones to Android

Motorola's Vice President (VP) for Asia Spiros Nikolakopoulos has told the media that his firm is planning to launch between 20 and 30 smartphones into the global market this year and he confirmed that "all of them will run Android".

Motorola has gone from a floundering former leader to a firm on the rebound over the last 12 months and many attribute its growing success to Google's Android platform.

As a result, it is not surprising that its association with the software is set to deepen with multiple new releases graced with Google's wares.

Mr Nikolakopoulos also confirmed that Motorola would be launching non-Android phones aimed at the lower end of the market, with in-house OS support.

Observers have noted that this promise of 20 to 30 handsets is a rather steep one, since so far only four Android-based smartphones have been generated by the Motorola labs.

Motorola's commitment to Android is certainly a significant one, as it will have stiff competition from the Nexus One with which to contend in 2010.
