Learn about Motorola's rich History with these fun batwings

Learn about Motorola's rich History in less than two minutes with these fun batwings! Are you ready? Here we go:

In 2004, Motorola introduced the RAZR V3. It became the most popular phone in the world for the next four years. Many variants of it were released, including 3G speeds, better cameras and more memory, and the RAZR series went on to sell 150 million units worldwide. It's the fastest-selling phone in history, and many limited editions, such as RED, Dolce and Gabbana, Beckham and Miami Ink, among others, were released.

July 20, 1969 was the day 500 million people saw the Moon Landing. "It's one small step for a man. One giant leap for mankind". That famous phrase was broadcasted from the Moon to the Earth thanks to Motorola communication devices installed on the Apollo 11.

Pagers were invented by Motorola and were the most popular communication device of the 90s. These two-way communication systems were built upon Motorola's experience with walkie talkies, but this allowed users to send "texts".

Did you know Motorola had a semiconductor unit? Motorola processors were the most advanced chips back in the 80s and 90s and they powered most consumer devices at the time, from washing machines to Apple Computers.

Another classic! The Motorola StarTAC was released in 1996 and became the first flip phone. It was also the smallest and lightest at the time. The phone was also the first with a vibrate/silent mode, fixing a big consumer/business problem at the time. StarTAC sold 60 million units sold worldwide with a price tag of $1,000 at launch.
