Motorola (NYSE: MOT) has been at the forefront of communication inventions and innovations for more than 80 years. We have achieved extraordinary accomplishments along the way — such as making the equipment that carried the first words from the moon and leading the cellular communication revolution with the development of the world's first handheld cellular phone, the DynaTAC 8000x. More recently, Motorola has staked out a position at the forefront of 4G telecommunications. We hold a market-leading position in WiMAX deployments around the world. In 2008, we demonstrated the world's first WiMAX 802.16e mobile handoff and the industry's first over-the-air data sessions in the 700 MHz spectrum using the Long Term Evolution standard, the next evolution of mobile broadband.
With the rapid convergence of fixed and mobile broadband Internet and the growing demand for next-generation mobile communication solutions, our mission is to lead the next wave of innovative products that meet the expanding needs of our customers around the world. The trends toward media mobility, ubiquitous connectivity and wireless flexibility, coupled with mobile lifestyles and business, continue to expand. Today, Motorola's portfolio of technologies, solutions and services includes wireless handsets, wireless accessories, digital entertainment devices, wireless access systems, voice and data communications systems, and enterprise mobility products. We operate in numerous countries around the globe, tapping the creativity of diverse cultures and individuals. And we demonstrate each day, at every site and in all that we do, that doing business and acting responsibly are not mutually exclusive endeavors.
Our history is rich. Our future is dynamic. We are Motorola and the spirit of invention is what drives us.
