Analyst: Motorola plans 10 smartphones for the rest of 2009

Our hope for Motorola has been waning of late. But the same can't be said for an analyst with Oppenheimer & Co., who says Moto plans to launch 10 smartphones in the second half of the year.

OK, so this is from a stocks analyst and not an actual announcement from Motorola, so we'll be taking this with a grain of salt. But we thought we saw at least one WinMo phone in those renderings late last year, so Moto might still have something else up its sleeve.

But if Moto's going to crank out 10 smartphones this year, the question remains, will they be Windows Mobile? Android? Or something else?
