I still see my pension information at http://resources.hewitt.com/motorola/. I hope they will let us know if it changes. I don't know if they still have pensions for new employees.

I'm guessing that this not only signals the end of the MOT ticker, but also future pensions! Where can former "Motorola" employees go for their benefits?

"Likely winners will be low cost manufacturers in China, not Motorola." That could be said for almost any technology company these days. I for one remember the Motorola heyday and have be saddened watching the company get smaller and smaller. I hope the new plans bring the name and company back from the edge.

United Airline used to have a "Ted" division. The "fashion" was to spin off the semi division, like Agere, Avago, Infineon, Freescale. Will splitting help ? how about calling the new companies "Moto" and "Rola" ?

I didn't see anything in the article about the tablet PC. Is that mobility's solution to the the next big thing?

I will agree. Android phones will soon become standard commodity. Likely winners will be low cost manufacturers in China, not Motorola. As company like Motorola to thrive in today's environment, creativity is king.

They are doing internally what a private equity firm would do, who knows maybe they are acting it out as per one of them! But seriously if Moto desires to become one of the top players they should come out of the limbo they're in now. Android is fine but don't hedge your bets on android and google to lift you up. Where is the innovation that's needed in these hard times to stand out of the crowd?

I hope the two new Motorolas do well, but I have to wonder if this latest split is the end of this fissioning. In just a little over a decade, a piece of the company was sold to General Dynamics, another piece was spun off to become ON Semiconductor, another piece was spun off to become Freescale Semiconductor, another piece got sold to Nokia-Siemens Networks, and the remainder is now becoming two new companies that will both use the Motorola name. Hopefully the Wall Street analysts can keep up :)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
