    Just saw this interesting item on Radio Reference, straight from UPMan:

    Uniden Buys Motorola Mobility

    I have to admit that was a pretty good April Fool's joke! UPMan has a great sense of humor lolol.

    Interestingly, Motorola Mobility is not the division that makes radios, but the division that makes smartphones. So to me, it was even more surprising that Uniden was entering the smartphone market.


    From Wikipedia:
    Motorola Mobility is an American consumer electronics and telecommunications company based out of Chicago, Illinois that was founded in 2011. Motorola Mobility is currently owned by Lenovo after being purchased from Google in 2014. Motorola Mobility was formed after the split of the original Motorola on January 4, 2011. The split was structured in that Motorola Mobility took on the company's consumer-oriented product lines, including its mobile phone business and its cable modems and set-top boxes for digital cable and satellite television services, while Motorola Solutions retained the company's enterprise-oriented product lines.

    Good point. I was wondering the same thing when I first saw that. He should have said Motorola Solutions that would have been better. I was going to start a rumor about the V2 being released (or VR being bought out by Escort) but decided against it.:)
