Motorola has declared that it has no plans to release any mobile phones featuring Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. It will, instead, concentrate upon Android as its OS of choice.
The company has also declared that it has signed up a number of companies to become involved within its Android 'ecosystem', developing solutions and applications for its Android handsets (like the Motorola Dext). They include: Amazon MP3, Accuweather, Barnes & Noble, Comcast Entertainment Group, CardStar, Hands On Mobile, Howcast.com, MySpace, Midomi, QuickOffice, QuickPlay Media, Superpages.com, RJDJ and Travel Channel, according to the Phonescoop website.
"Working closely with these companies allows us to provide a compelling mobile Android-based experience that satisfies specific consumer needs," declared Christy Wyatt, vice president, software applications and ecosystem, Motorola Mobile Devices.
Motorola did, however, declare that once Windows 7 is available, it will look to develop phones featuring that particular OS.
