Exclusive: Motorola Confirms It Will Launch Android Devices at Mobilize 09

motorinvite.jpgMotorola (s MOT) yesterday sent out an invitation to what many bloggers assumed to be the launch of its hotly anticipated Android handsets, and which Om noted also happened to fall on Sept. 10, the date of our Mobilize 09 mobile Internet conference. Nope, it’s not a coincidence. The handset maker has confirmed that Motorola’s co-CEO Sanjay Jha will launch the company’s Android portfolio during his keynote speech at our event. From the Motorola response to questions generated by yesterday’s invitation:

Thank you for your response, we’re excited to see you in San Francisco! We wanted to provide some additional details so you’re aware of what to expect for September 10. Motorola Mobile Devices CEO Sanjay Jha will be making an announcement regarding the company’s Android portfolio during his keynote that day at GigaOM’s Mobilize conference. If you are not signed up to attend GigaOM, we will coordinate registration for you.

Now that the launch is confirmed we can now all spend our time speculating on what kind of Android devices we’ll see.

  1. yes let’s please see phones with better battery life. what’s the point in having a phone with the latest features if it only gets 10 mpg, so to speak. i’d hate to think that it’s to support the battery aftermarket.

  2. MOTO is following PALM ,

    PALM did the same back in 2008 December, “expect newness from PALM”.

    I say the device might be better built than HTC , with some cloud tapping capabilities.

    One major attraction might be the battery life of the device ( if they can one up every other manufacturer (including APPLE) and their grandma).
