Bangalore: Stories of “rags to riches and beyond” are not rare in tech world, be it a company started in garage turning in to Cupertino giant or a Harvard dropout building a biggest social networking site. These stories invoke a sense of inspiration and amazement.

Imagine the other way, where a successful company fails to hold on to its glory, and thrown out, which could have otherwise been in a league of biggest tech names today. That seems like a biggest opportunity missed. Read on to know 12 such compilations.      

#12 Motorola

What It Had: The potential. Razr, launched in 2004, was success and sold about 50 million units by 2006, it was the first thinnest Phone; made other manufacturers to follow example. 

The things which were cherished at a moment may miss the same charm with changing times. Motorola did not understand this fact or were ok with their innocence. When Apple was unveiling blockbuster phones, Moto yet hung on to Razr and Krzrs, and missed on to the innovations which could have saved the company. The user interface and software didn’t seem to matter at all.

Moto came up with MotoQ, which had windows OS. But it was too late; it only flickered for a while. By the time they tried to do anything good by themselves, the company was under Google. Moto indeed had a big fall.
