Motorola Pledges to Bring Smart Actions to More Handsets in 2012

Motorola plans to bring its “Smart Actions” functionality to more handsets in 2012. The functionality is currently only available in the Droid Razr and soon-to-be-released Droid Razr Maxx, and helps you customize the settings on your phone to meet your own personal needs.

Smart Actions, for example, can be set up to do things like launch your favorite news site automatically on the screen when you wake up in the morning, connect to the Wi-Fi in your office each day when you arrive or automatically put your phone on silent when you arrive at Yoga. While most of the functionality of Smart Actions is available on other Android devices, Motorola’s offering makes that functionality simple and easy to interface with. The phone also pays attention to how you use it, so it can make suggestions on how to optimize your battery life and its performance based on your specific needs.

According to the report, Motorola will also continue to invest in its Webtop software (that thing that allows its phones to be used as laptops) and will expand its Razr line of phones further in 2012.

I’m personally a huge fan of Motorola’s Smart Actions. While I tend to roll in a phone-savvy crowd, the Actions definitely make things a TON easier for those who might not know their way around Android, and even for those who do.

What do you think? Are you excited Smart Actions will be coming to more Android devices? What would you like to see Motorola do in 2012.
