Motorola also unveiled new mobile devices for the retail sector at its event on Wednesday. These included the MC40, an Android-based mobile point-of-sale device. "It's mobile computing with point of sale," Jim Welch, the senior vice president of Motorola Solutions, told TheStreet. "It also allows you to do inventory management and voice and data communications."

The Schaumburg, Ill.-based company also unveiled its SB1 Smart Badge, which it describes as a "workforce management" device providing product information and voice and data communications for retail workers.

In addition to the MC40 and the SB1, Motorola also demoed its ET1 Android tablet at the SoHo event. Launched last year, the 7-inch ET1 can be used for customer education and point-of-sale.

Shares of Motorola Solutions, which have gained 3.54% this year, were down 0.17% to $47.91 in Thursday trading.
