Motorola came late to the smartcard market this week as the company unveiled its strategy which it hopes will help rescue it from the doldrums.
Senior executives at Motorola said there is a worldwide market for devices on cards the size of credit cards which have data on-board, but analysts thought it was following in the footsteps of Groupe Bull, which introduced its own technology into the French market five years ago.
Worse than this, Motorola has already invested a fortune in the GSM market but was slow to that market last year, allowing Ericsson to make big inroads into Motorola?s market share.
Sources said it is diverting funds away from cards it was trying to sell in mobile phones, although the company denied this today.
