Motorola on the hunt for Android developers
Although Motorola doesn’t feel like talking about its upcoming Android smartphones, it seems the company is pretty eager to seek out talented Android developers. The official MOTODEV site is now clearly open to developers who want to participate in the making of a rich application catalog, meaning devices are indeed in the works. Christy Wyatt, Motorola’s vice president of software platforms, has said that after collaborating with MOTODEV, Android app makers will have the opportunity to distribute their products through numerous channels, informs Forbes. This includes the Android Market, carrier stores, direct sales and third party distributors. Apparently, the most innovative and useful apps have a good chance of coming preloaded on future Android-powered Motorola phones.

The company hopes to attract attention because of the many Android products it plans to roll out and their global distribution. Christy Wyatt has also said their handsets will vary from mid- to high-end and will target both the consumer and enterprise markets, relying on messaging and multimedia features (the rumored Morrison for T-Mobile seems to fit in these characteristics).
