If you read CNET's coverage of CES, you'd know I'm pretty excited for the company's new Atrix 4G and Droid Bionic. So I was even more interested today when Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha announced potential release dates for the dual-core Android handsets.
Jha dropped the news during the Q&A session that followed the company's fourth-quarter 2010 earnings call this afternoon. During the session, Jha said that Motorola expects to ship the Atrix 4G and Xoomtablet next month, with the Droid Bionic and LTE Xoom tablet following in the second quarter of the year. After the call, a Motorola spokeswoman confirmed the release windows with CNET, but would not provide more-specific dates.
Motorola's huge and successful presence at CES earned the company several accolades, including CNET's Best of CES award for the Xoom. It now heads into 2011 with one of its strongest product portfolios in years. Though Jha also admitted during the call that Motorola is already feeling pressure from the upcoming Verizon iPhone, Jha said Moto's relationship with Verizon remains strong.
