We remember those milestones because we were a part of them.
For more than 80 years Motorola has been on the forefront of technology, continually developing innovative ways of connecting people to each other and the world around them.
It all started with cars and took off from there. Here are just a few things we’ve done:
- 1930 – The Motorola radio was one of the first commercially-successful car radios.
- 1940s – We made remote communication possible during World War II with our Handie-Talkie SCR536.
- 1969 – It was our parts that made it possible for Neil Armstrong’s famous words to be heard.
- 1983 – Motorola’s DynaTAC is the phone you remember from the 80s and also the very first commercial handheld cellphone.
- 2009 – We introduced
the world’sVerizon’s first smartphone powered by Android. You know it as DROID by Motorola.
We’re responsible for a number of firsts, and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
