In a deal valued at nearly $4-billion, Motorola has completed its acquisition of Symbol Technologies. 

Symbol now becomes a part of Motorola Networks & Enterprise, a business with a combined revenue of $13 billion for 2005, and will be the core of Motorola’s enterprise mobility business.
“By combining our complementary technology portfolios, deep industry-specific domain knowledge, sales channels and customer bases, the new Motorola enterprise mobility business establishes itself as a global leader in providing realtime technology solutions for customers, both inside and outside the four walls of their enterprise,” says Greg Brown, president of Motorola Networks & Enterprise.
He adds that Motorola’s enterprise mobility business will address the entire spectrum of enterprise mobility needs from the shop floor to the corner office, providing workers with access to information out in the field, in the factory, at cash registers, at a patient’s bedside and throughout the supply chain.
The end result, Brown says, is seamless information exchange across functions, geographies and devices that allows employees to make more informed decisions, be more productive and gain a competitive edge.
The enterprise mobility business will offer a device portfolio ranging from mobile office devices such as  the Motorola Q, to rugged mobile and wearable computers from Symbol.
In addition, Motorola enterprise mobility devices will integrate and utilise capabilities gained through the recent acquisition of Good Technology.
Good Technology’s wireless messaging, data access and handheld security offerings provide intuitive and advanced productivity solutions for mobile professionals with enterprise-level device security and management.
Sal Iannuzzi, former president and CEO of Symbol, will serve as president of the new Motorola enterprise mobility business.
