In February this year, Motorola announced plans to split into two separate publicly traded companies and cease trading as a single entity by the first quarter of 2011.
The reorganisation will result in the formation of a Mobile Devices and Home (MDH) unit, and an Enterprise Mobility Solutions and Networks (EMSN) unit. Current Motorola co-CEOs Sanjay Jha and Greg Brown will become chief executives of the MDH and EMSN divisions respectively.
Its mobility business launched a number of devices in the smartphone market this year, as it sought to keep a foothold in the face of competition.
