Today Motorola bought Symbol technologies. Symbol is the market leader in RFID hardware market. They specialize in fixed and mobile readers. Traditionally they have been very strong players in handheld bar code readers. This deal is a great news for RFID market. RFID market needs bigger players. Who can take advantage of economies of scale and bring in lot more money for innovationâ€¦.
So I think this is turning point in the RFID industry and there will be more big deals and lot of big companies will enter the marketâ€¦ I am waiting for Intermec, Alien, Sirit to be taken over next.. Lets see how that goesâ€¦
