Motorola has a very long history in the telecommunication industry. The company started as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1928 and was renamed Motorola when it started to work on car radios. Talking about its achievement, Motorola was the first mobile company to make a handheld phone. Interestingly, it was through a Motorola transceiver that Neil Armstrong spoke the words “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.
However, Motorola Mobility, the smartphone manufacturer that we know today, came into existence when the original Motorola Inc. split into two separate entities in 2011. Google acquired Motorola Mobility in 2012 and it was under Google’s ownership that the company witnessed its much-needed success in the smartphone market, especially in South Asia. It was largely due to the popular G-series which were sturdy, affordable, and came with a stock Android experience. However, Google sold the company to Lenovo in 2014 and since then, Motorola has been a shadow of the company that it used to be.
Motorola entered the Nepali market in 2017 with budget-friendly C-series and E-series of smartphones. But because of the tough price points of mobile phones from other Chinese vendors, Motorola failed to make an impact at the time in Nepal. And now, the company has made a comeback. Motorola has chosen Call Mobility as its official distributor. Call Mobility is also the official distributor of Huawei smartphones in Nepal. The news of an experienced player like Call Mobility bringing back the Motorola brand in Nepal has got us really excited.
