Motorola is a large multinational technology company that was founded in the United States. It's headquartered at 1 Motorola Plaza, Chicago, Illinois. Although it specializes in smartphones and other mobile devices such as tablets, its business areas also include non-smart wireless devices such as cellular infrastructure equipment and Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) phones.
The Motorola brand name was first used by the company in 1928, but it was not until 1980 that "Motorola Inc." was officially incorporated as a holding firm for all corporate entities called DynaTAC, Inc., including those of Motorola's former acquisitions such as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation (the primary business behind the founding of Motorola), and the cellular mobile division Motorola Mobile Communications previously known as General Telephone and Electronics (GTE) and renamed after its purchase in 1995.
