Motorola reports a steep drop in net income in the fourth quarter.

Motorola reported a net income of $100 million, down from $623 million a year earlier.
Motorola shipped 40.9 million handsets, which is steep decline when comparing it to the 65.7 million a year earlier.
Motorola sees slowing demand for their phones and says that this might continue in the next quarter.
The problem is that Motorola somehow can not find a way to continue the tremendous success they had with the RAZR. The success of the RAZR lies not in the naming of the phones e.g. PEBL, SLVR, etc.

More details on the WSJ and in this Motorola earnings release.
