Because of the advancement in the technological field things are not the same as they were ten year ago. Human society has experienced continuous developments and alteration in marketing trends through the harnessing of information and scientific knowledge in the form of various technologies. In the reflection of such changes the 82 year-old consumer electronics pioneer “Motorola” has been split in to two companies: the Motorola Mobility and the Motorola Solutions. After the separation Mobility will take up a temporary home in nearby Libertyville, Ill while Solutions will continue to be based in Schaumburg, Ill. Motorola officials have said that it may later move its headquarters team to San Diego, the San Francisco area or Austin, Texas. The founder company “Motorola Inc” was responsible for all the early development of electronic products including televisions, cell phones and even was the first broadcast from the moon.

For decades, Motorola Inc's products told the account of the march of electronics into the hands of consumers: their car radios came in the 1930s, TVs in the 1940s while cell phones hit the market in 1980s.Later on company expanded their business and produced police radios and barcode scanners for the government agencies and large businesses but these divisions complicated the picture Motorola painted for investors and now they build up the second company, Motorola Solutions Inc. Both companies have a lot of expectations regarding this breakup. They hope that it will help them in making faster decision and in facing the market in better manner.

As separate companies, the Motorola Mobility will target the consumers while solution is professionals-focused company. Being new companies they will use nimbler approach for the development of revolutionary products such as tablet computers. In order to achieve customer satisfaction, consumer-focused Mobility will more focused on understanding technology as opposed to managing a portfolio of their products. As part of the breakup, Motorola is selling its cellular network equipment division to Nokia Siemens Networks; however regulators in China are still reviewing the $1.2 billion sale, which is expected to close in the next three months.
