Project work is never the accomplishment of an individual rather it is an amalgamation of the efforts, ideas and co-operation of a number of entities.
I would like to thank GURU GOBIND SINGH INDRAPRASTHA UNIVERSITY for giving an opportunity to work on a valuable project.
The completion of the project study that follows, seemed to be a distant goal had it not been for the contribution of Dr. Ajay Rathore for allowing me to work on a very intrinsic part on BRAND PREFERENCE OF MOBILE PHONES with Special reference to MOTOTROLA PHONES.I thank him for the ideas and basic concepts he delivered and shared with me, as they helped me a lot in accomplishing this project of mine.
The project gives an insight of the telecom sector through Motorola India ltd. It basically helps understanding the brand preference of consumers with regard to mobile phones. It helps us to know what are the basis on which a customer chooses a particular brand when he purchases a new handset.
The project will help to learn about the growing telecom sector in India. The research will also bring to light what all factors a customer considers at the time of purchase of a new mobile phone.

Motorola started as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1928. The name Motorola was adopted in 1947, but the word had been used as a trademark since the 1930s. Founders Paul Galvin and Joe Galvin came up with the name Motorola when their company started manufacturing car radios. A number of early companies making phonographs, radios, and other audio equipment in the early 20th century used the suffix "-ola," the most famous being Victrola; RCA made a "radiola"; there was also a company that made jukeboxes called Rock-Ola, and a film editing device called a Moviola. The Motorola prefix "motor-" was chosen because the company's initial focus was in automotive electronics. Many of Motorola's products have been radio-related, starting with a battery eliminator for radios, through the first walkie-talkie in the world, defense electronics, cellular infrastructure equipment, and mobile phone manufacturing. The company was also strong in semiconductor technology, including integrated circuits used in computers. Motorola has been the main supplier for the microprocessors used in Commodore Amiga, Apple Macintosh and Power Macintosh personal computers. The chip used in the latter computers, the PowerPC family, was developed with IBM and in a partnership with Apple (known as the AIM alliance). Motorola also has a diverse line of communication products, including satellite systems, digital cable boxes and modems
Motorola creates several different products for use of the government, public safety officials, business installments, and the general public. These products include cell phones, laptops, and radios.

The business ambitions behind this project and the need for raising venture capital to fund the project led to the creation of the Iridium Company in the late 1990s. While the technology was proven to work, Iridium failed to attract sufficient customers and they filed for bankruptcy in 1999. Obligations to Motorola and loss of expected revenue caused Motorola to spin off the ON Semiconductor (ONNN) business August 4, 1999, raising for Motorola of about $1.1 Billion. Further declines...
