Celebrity sightings & V600 Delay

Motorola in bid to generate buzz decided to give Oscar goers its hot V600 phone . But the phone is no where to be found, according to an informal survey by Loop Capital Analyst Ren Zamora.

“After speaking with ~20 AT&T Wireless retail stores nationwide, we believe Motorola’s long-anticipated V600 phone has been delayed, possibly due to a technical glitch with the phone. We now believe the phone will be released in late March or early April, later than the company’s target release timeframe of February. Given the handset’s delay, we no longer view the V600’s contribution in the U.S. as a source of potential upside when Motorola reports its 1Q04 results,” he says.
