Motorola Screams "Look! iDEN Still Matters! For Now."

In the wake of the Sprint Nextel deal, there was a lot of press about how Motorola was going to get squeezed because of the loss of all that Nextel iDEN business — which represents a significant chunk of revenue for them. So, don’t be surprised at all by the timing of this announcement saying that Motorola has signed a 3 year extension to supply iDEN equipment to Nextel. iDEN isn’t going away so quickly, and there will be plenty of time to phase it out. However, in the meantime, Motorola will keep supplying the equipment, and they want to make sure everyone knows that.
