motorola, started functioning in the year 1928,in Chicago,Illinois(USA) as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation with its first product as battery eliminator.The company was renamed as motorola in the year 1930 when founders Paul Galvin and Joseph Galvin started manufacturing car radios.The name motorola originated from the word "Motor" and the suffix "ola" was used because of its heavy usage at the time with different products.
motorola pioneered the radiotelephone or car phones as they were popularly known which were two way radios connected through a landline telephone.With its limitations such as usage of phones in the car itself and the low level frequency,motorola in competition with AT&T started working on improvisation in mobile car phones but engineers at motorola realised the need of phones outside one's car.
