Enterprise Mobility: Motorola Droid Razr, Polaroid Digital Camera, Android Devices Want Holiday Dollars
Motorola, Samsung and other tech titans spend the latter part of every year gearing up for two massive events: The holidays, where they'll rely on a flood of shoppers to help move millions of smartphones and other devices, and the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a massive January conference where companies are expected to debut their latest and greatest. A recent New York City event offered an early glimpse of both holiday products and those that'll appear at CES. Some of these proved familiar to those who follow tech. Motorola, for example, showed off both the Droid Razr, its ultra-thin Android smartphone with a 4.3-inch screen and dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and the MotoActive, a lightweight wrist-device that acts as a combination music player and health monitor. Other, less-visible devices have either just made their debut, or are gearing up for launch sometime in the coming weeks and months. Among these is Polaroid's new z340 Instant Digital Camera, which rocks the best of the '80s with its boxy look (and ability to print photos from its front) but with digital imaging technology under the hood. Whether smartphones, cameras or software, a lot of tech is coming down the pipeline for consumers and businesspeople.
