Wounded Animal

Motorola's stock has been acting better of late, and has more than doubled since the market low in March.

Much of the better action can be attributed to that <--- phone, which rolled out today. Motorola hasn't had a hit in a while. That particular model's claim to fame is that it is supposed to maximize the social networking experience via a software/service called MOTOBLUR.

There is a risk that Motorola screws up the whole smart phone market if this and their next couple of products are almost good enough. Like most markets in tech, most of the profits happen at the high end. If Moto comes in just below there and has to/chooses to price aggressively, look out.
