Motorola ends fiscal Q2 with healthy profit

Motorola logoMotorola is obviously just about at the end of the tunnel as their financial results are starting to get better and better. This time around the company reported 162 million US dollars of profit, which compares very favorably to the 26 millions earned for the same period last year.

Of course what interests us the most is Motorola mobile division, which managed to push 8.7 million handsets for the past three months. Those generated 1.7 billion dollars of revenue and 87 million dollars of profit. Okay it's not like they are lighting their Cuban cigars with Benjamins in the Moto HQ, but it's certainly good enough considering their recent track record.

The bad news is that some legal statement brought them 228 million dollars that certainly added for the positive financial result and it's unlikely that such a thing will happen again next quarter. So Motorola will need to keep up the hard work and hope that by the time the mobile division gets separated it can continue to be in the black, relying on sales alone.

Releasing more devices like the Motorola Droid X, which enjoyed a great reception in the US will certainly help. And fitting some GSM radios in those might help in the rest of the world warming up towards Motorola too.
