Motorola is a pioneer in the mobile phone industry, having famously developed the first handheld mobile phone, the DynaTAC, in 1983. The company then moved on to manufacture the first clamshell mobile phone, followed by the popular slim phones in the early 2000s. 

But in 2011, Motorola split into Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions. Motorola Mobility took over responsibility for the consumer mobile phone business, which was sold to Lenovo in 2014. Meanwhile, Motorola Solutions builds communication solutions for public safety organisations, from traditional telecommunications to body-worn cameras.

Here, we take a look at what they’re both up to in the mobile and telecommunication sector. 

Motorola and Google Cloud bring Gen AI to Motorola phones

Motorola and Google Cloud have begun a new multi-year relationship to bring Gen AI to Motorola phones, including the razr smartphones. Moto ai technology is built using Google Cloud Vertex AI, Gemini and Imagen models. 

Now it is integrated across native smartphone applications and to give users:

  • The ability to complete tasks more efficiently
  • Provide relevant suggestions and reminders
  • Summarise and recall information. 

"Motorola has a long history of making innovative devices that make people's lives easier and more fun," said Umesh Vemuri, Vice President, Strategic Pursuits, Google Cloud. "The latest lineup of razr smartphones applies the power of Google's AI models in creative and practical ways that raise the bar for how smartphones can act as helpful companions for users across the globe."

"The razr brand is synonymous with innovation, and we are thrilled to have partnered with Google to deliver innovative generative AI solutions to our consumers," said Dan Dery, Vice President, AI, Ecosystem and Internet Services, Motorola. "Moto ai empowers users to intuitively create content, personalise their device, obtain the information they seek, and accomplish more in less time – all made possible by Google's most advanced AI."

The company has invested US$858m in research and development, delivering next-generation technologies, such as specialised AI capabilities which heighten decision-making and help increase the focus, accuracy and speed of emergency responses. To ensure the responsible use of these technologies, Motorola has worked alongside communities, policymakers and public safety organisations. 

In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from across Motorola Solutions’ operations, the company has implemented enhanced data collection and reporting tools, to spot sustainable opportunities for growth. 

As a result of these initiatives, the company also received recognition for being a top place to work, being named: 

  • Disability Equality Index® Best Places to Work
  • Fast Company Best Workplaces for Innovators
  • Forbes World’s Best Employers
  • Fortune World’s Most Admired Companies
