Motorola has published its third-quarter financial results, revealing total sales of $5.5 billion and mobile device sales of $1.7 billion, having shipped 13.6 million handsets. Those sales figures are down on the previous year, yet the company still managed to show a profit of $12 million – better than the break-even figure many analysts expected.
France Telecom generated 12.686 billion Euro during Q3 2009 and saw its mobile customer base exceed 128 million users worldwide.
