Motorola MWC press event will be held on Feb. 25, could address the Lenovo buyout

Motorola has now scheduled a MWC press event for February 25th. No new hardware is expected, with the event likely focusing on the Lenovo buyout and what it means for Motorola.
February 6, 2014

When we first learned of Google’s intentions to sell Motorola to Lenovo for $2.9 billion last week, we were left with more questions than answers. What would a Lenovo-owned Motorola look like? Would the Texas plant stay open? Would the Moto X and Moto G lines continue?

If you’re one of the many Motorola fans that are curious about what the future holds, there is a chance that you’ll at least get a few more answers at Motorola’s February 25th MWC press event. Reportedly, the bulk of the press event will be centered around Motorola’s future plans, with Dennis Woodside addressing the media with an “update on the business”.

Considering the deal hasn’t even finalized just yet, we don’t expect to many concrete details, but even a few subtle hints about the Lenovo direction would be appreciated. For those also looking for hardware announcements, we wouldn’t get your hopes up.

Considering all the changes going on at Motorola, we doubt the company will be bringing us anything new until the Lenovo/Google deal closes and all the dust settles. Further shutting the door on the possibility of any new devices at MWC, Pocket-Lint says it has confirmed there will be no major announcements planned outside of the business update.

Although Motorola’s event clearly won’t be as exciting or as anticipated as Samsung’s own press event, we are still more than curious to hear what Woodside has to say.
