Motorola cans RAZR 3 (Ruby), tells Android to, “Holla!”

Motorola’s plans are thwarted once again by canning the highly anticipated RAZR 3, codenamed Ruby. After putting some effort into reviving and continuing the RAZR line with this new phone, it looks like they’ve changed their minds and are shifting focus elsewhere. Though the original RAZR was wildly successful, going from overpriced down to free in just a year and a half after its release, the RAZR 2 failed to see the same results. It’s hard to say whether the RAZR 3 would have seen a come back for Motorola, but anything that can be said now is pure speculation. Jumping on Android and focusing on devices that will carry the platform, Motorola is taking another direction by being part of the Open Handset Alliance. The electronics giant is now ditching the Symbian platform that was originally intended for the new RAZR shortly after restructuring their mobile division. Will Moto be doing anything right in the near future? If they intend on staying in business, we should hope so. We’ve always got a special place for you in our hearts, Motorola.
