Motorola’s Home and Networks Mobility business has shipped 100 million digital entertainment devices, according to the company.
“With over 100 million unit shipments, Motorola’s digital entertainment devices are the most widely deployed in the world,” said Mike Paxton, principal analyst with research firm In-Stat, in a statement.
In related news, Motorola’s 2009 Media Engagement Barometer clearly demonstrated a rise in consumers’ expectations for connectivity to content and devices anytime and anywhere. The study also revealed strong demand for content customization.
To meet these new demands of the “Internet Era of TV,” Motorola is focusing on three critical consumer needs: content, community and control.
As part of its research and development initiatives, Motorola is contributing to Georgia Tech’s Fourth Annual Convergence Innovation Competition, giving students the opportunity to connect classroom and research lab work to the business world with the creation of innovative and commercially relevant applications and services for set-top boxes, among other content delivery devices.
