Motorola unveils thin phone for emerging markets

Motorola said it is going to sell its thinnest phone ever, the Motofone, in emerging markets, where the bulk of growth is expected. Motorola said the new phone is even smaller than its RAZR line at just 9 millimeters. This ultra-thin phone comes at a critical time for Motorola as emerging markets become the battleground for market share with Nokia. Ron Garriques, head of Motorola's handset division told investors on Tuesday that Motorola "must go out there and disrupt the high growth markets". The company said it would also improve its distribution in the emerging sectors.
