i thought that Jha did a really good job at Moto. adopting android was arguably the biggest and best move moto has made in a long long time.

Totally agree. He did a fantastic job bringing Moto back to life. I said this a little while back- he will be out of a job only for as long as he wants to be. Someone will jump at the chance to get this guy and his proven track record.

I may actually contemplate buying a Moto Nexus if that's what goes down this Christmas. Slap an OMAP5 in that bitch.

Well...even now if Moto releases Razr Maxx with stock build on all carriers...its gonna dent sales of some existing android top seller...SGS2...I own SGS2 and its excellent device...but have wish to buy razr maxx once before I upgrade to SGS3 (in future) :)

Jha made some great decisions as CEO, but more recently hasn't seemed to do much to keep the company on track. I think it'll be good to see what a new CEO and team of executives can bring to the table.

now google needs to hire someone who can really designs beautiful hardware... never had a moto handset of any kind because while the build quality may be top notch, the design is a lot to expect... hopefully someone from nokia or sonyericsson will join...

He is a great CEO Motorola did some great phones under him especially the razr. Bad move by Google cause I think many companies will be looking forward to him

agreed, it's kinda sad to see him going off like that.. he has directed the company to where it is now, among the top dogs.. hopefully he will be hired by other manufacturers and his expertise will continue to live on in the industry..
