Motorola sees boost from high-definition TV
BARCELONA (Reuters) - Motorola Inc MOT.N is seeing a strong boost from sales of set-top boxes for high-definition television services, according to Dan Maloney, head of the company's set-top box and network equipment unit.
"We saw a tremendous increase in demand for set-top boxes in the holiday season and afterwards. It's still going on," he said in an interview with Reuters at the Mobile World Congress, without giving specific growth figures.
He said that high-definition represented about 50 percent of sales for the Home and Networks unit, which accounted for about 27 percent of Motorola's 2007 revenue.
