Motorola Inc. plans a new range of slim cell phones next year, the head of its cell-phone division said on Wednesday.
Ron Garriques, who heads Motorola's biggest division, said the range would be called the SCPL, pronounced "scalpel." He did not give any details beyond describing the phones as thinner and with five features that would stand out from rival phones.
He said the company expects to sell 300 million to 500 million phones from the Razr phone product line and its design spin-offs in the lifetime of the product range.
Along with the flip-top slim Razr phone, the product line includes the SLVR, a thin candy bar-shaped phone and the PEBL, a curvier version.
