Motorola sales were up 17 percent in Q3 2006 over Q3 2005, reaching a record-setting $10.6 billion for the company. Handset shipments also set a record, reaching 53.7 million units, up 39 percent over Q3 2005. Motorola’s global handset market share reached 22.4 percent, besting the same quarter last year by 3.8 points. Ed Zander, Motorola chairman and CEO, said, “While our third-quarter sales were slightly below our guidance, we are pleased with our earnings,” adding, “During the quarter, GSM infrastructure sales in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region were weaker than anticipated due to customer delays in capital spending. Additionally, sales of iDEN mobile devices were lower, caused by customer inventory reductions in anticipation of new dual-mode device shipments in the fourth quarter.”
