Motorola strong on HD STBs

Motorola is making up for some of its losses in mobile as it sees a strong boost from sales of set-top boxes for high-definition television services, according to Dan Moloney, 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 told Reuters at the Mobile World Congress, without giving specific growth figures. He said that high-definition represented about 50 per cent of sales for the Home and Networks unit, which accounted for about 27 per cent of Motorola’s 2007 revenue.
