Motorola was once on top of the smartphone in Kenya. An innovator, avant-guard and one of the first manufacturers in the cell phone market, having released their first handheld portable telephone in 1973. By the late 90′s and early 2000′s, the company was known as the top cellular phone producer, at par with Nokia. However, the fairy tale would come to a screeching halt in the end of the first decade of the 2nd millennium when a number of manufacturers and companies popped up, introducing smart phones which sold like hotcakes in the market. The company failed to adopt and lost billions in revenue, making it split into two independent companies, Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility. However, in May 2012, Google had acquired Motorola Mobility, the phone manufacturer of the two companies. The company is known to release flip phones like the RAZR. The phone stood out among others and is easily one of the most popular phones before the era of the smart phones.

Currently however, despite the merge with Google, Motorola has been unable to stage a successful comeback with its range of newly-released smart phones being overshadowed by competitors like Apple and Samsung. However, there are rumors surfacing that the newest product of the Google-Motorola mix up will be released this year.
