Many of Motorola's products have been [[radio]]-related, starting with a [[battery eliminator]] for radios, through the first [[walkie-talkie]] in the [[world]], [[Defense (military)|defense]] electronics, [[cellular]] infrastructure equipment, and [[mobile phone]] manufacturing. The company was also strong in [[semiconductor]] technology, including [[integrated circuits]] used in [[computer]]s. Motorola has been the main supplier for the [[microprocessor]]s used in [[Amiga|Commodore Amiga]], [[Apple Computer|Apple]] [[Apple Macintosh|Macintosh]] and [[Power Macintosh]] [[personal computer]]s. The [[chip]] used in the latter computers, the [[PowerPC]] family, was developed with [[International Business Machines|IBM]] and in a partnership with Apple (known as the [[AIM alliance]]). Motorola also has a diverse line of communication products, including [[satellite]] systems, [[digital]] [[cable television|cable]] boxes and [[modems]].
 
==Products==
Motorola creates several different products for use of the government, public safety officials, business installments, and the general public. These products include [[:Category:Motorola mobile phones|cell phones]], laptops, computer processors, and radio communication devices.
The [[Motorola RAZR V3|Motorola RAZR line]] has sold over a 110 million units bringing the company to the number two mobile phone slot in [[2005]] (Nr 1 Nokia). The RAZR became a cult phone and many variations were produced.
 
==Spin-offs==
Motorola developed the first truly global communication network using a set of 66 satellites. The business ambitions behind this project and the need for raising venture capital to fund the project led to the creation of the [[Iridium (satellite)|Iridium company]] in the late 1980s. While the technology was proven to work, Iridium failed to attract sufficient customers and they filed for bankruptcy in [[1989]]. Obligations to Motorola and loss of expected revenue caused Motorola to spin off the [[ON Semiconductor|ON Semiconductor (ONNN)]] business [[August 4]], [[1989]], raising for Motorola of about $1.1 Billion.
 
Further declines in business during [[2000]] and [[2001]], caused Motorola to spin off its government and defense business to [[General Dynamics]]. The business deal closed September [[2001]]. Thus GD Decision Systems was formed (and later merged with General Dynamics C4 Systems) from Motorola's Integrated Information Systems Group.
 
On [[October 16]], [[2003]], Motorola announced that it would spin off its [[semiconductor]] [[Product (business)|product]] [[wiktionary:Sector|sector]] into a separate company called [[Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.]]. The new company began trading on the [[New York Stock Exchange]] on July 16th of the following year.

==Quality systems==
The [[Six Sigma]] [[quality system]] was developed at Motorola even though it became best known through its use by [[General Electric]]. It was created by engineer [[Bill Smith (Motorola engineer)|Bill Smith]], under the direction of [[Bob Galvin]] (son of founder Paul Galvin) when he was running the company. [[Motorola University]] is one of many places that provide Six Sigma training.
 
==Boom bust and slow recovery==
Motorola's success with the RAZR [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razr] projected the company into a position where it became a major force in the hand held market. Motorola cut handset prices in order to gain market share and though they shipped more units at the end of 2006 than ever before, their profit crashed in the final quarter [http://baggerjohn.blogspot.com/2007/01/mot-motorola-hello-moto.html]. Finding themselves too dependent on a single product that had become outdated, Motorola began a worldwide cost saving and restructuring exercise in 2007 leading to the closure of sites [http://www.heise.de/english/newsticker/news/95083] and the sell-off of non-core divisions (ECC Tempe Arizona to Emerson)[http://www.motorola.com/mediacenter/news/detail.jsp?globalObjectId=8725_8654_23].
 
Motorola continues to experience troubles with its handset division, which experienced a $1.2 billion loss in the 4th Quarter of 2007 [http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story/motorolas-quarterly-profit-declines-84/story.aspx?guid=%7BCC01CF82%2DC434%2D4C1E%2D97B5%2DFBEF11D78E44%7D&siteid=yhoof]. Analyst reports also indicated that Motorola's handset market share had slipped to 13% or less, down from 23% a year earlier. Overall, the company reported an 84% decrease in profit compared to a year earlier.
 
==Ratings from interest groups==
Motorola received a 100% rating on the [[Corporate Equality Index]] released by the [[Human Rights Campaign]] in [[2004]],<ref>{{Citation
