Analysts are maintaining very positive predictions about Motorola?s stock price, following that company?s announcement on Thursday of a partnership with Google.
The major partnership, which was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, will make it easier for users of Motorola handsets to access Google?s mobile internet services, including search. Future Motorola handsets will include a special Google button, enabling one-click access to the Google search home page.
?We view this to be a significant announcement as it helps boost mobile Internet use,? said RBC Capital Markets analyst, Mark Sue. ?To date, ease-of-access/use has been one of the barriers to broader adoption.?
The new Google-friendly handsets will be made available by the end of the first quarter, and will likely promote wider Motorola handset adoption, while boosting Google?s ad revenue.
