Motorola has a long history of producing quality electronics since 1928, when it first opened in Chicago, Illinois. In recent years, Motorola has split its large corporation into two entities - Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions. The company is known for its wireless technologies, such as its wireless telephone handsets, wireless networks, and cell based towers.
For those long time fans and users of Motorola products, especially their cell phones, the new line of phones that are offered from the nation’s largest cellular phone company, Verizon should be of interest.
Motorola Verizon Cell Phones
The line up for Motorola Verizon cell phones is varied, though there’s more Droid listings and variations than anything else. All of these phones, however, are currently being offered with free shipping, as well as an online discount if a phone and plan is purchased via the Verizon website. All phones mentioned are offered for a two year contract – that’s the basis on which the discounts apply.
The Motorola Citrus is one of the introductory smartphones offered by Verizon, offering the popular Android OS platform, as well as
a small form factor which allows the cell to sit comfortably in your hand or fit into a pocket or purse. Other features include an onscreen virtual keyboard, a 3 megapixel camera, a pre-installed 2GB SD card, and Skype mobile.
With all discounts applied, the Citrus is being offered for free on Verizon’s website. More information can be found in our Motorola Citrus review.
