Motorola's quarterly earnings continue their grisly streak: A loss of $231 million, following the $194 million they lost the quarter before, thanks a 23 percent drop in handset sales. Moto's co-CEO Sanjay Jha promised they're going to have "differentiated Android-based devices in stores in time for the fourth-quarter holiday season."

What we've seen so far of their Android devices seems promising, but they'd better be so hot they melt children's screaming faces from across the room if they're going to bring back Moto, who's been officially junky for a while. [InfoWeek]
