*edit It has been pointed out to me that below is part of Motorola Solutions, not Motorola Mobility, and has been unaffected by the buyout.
What I think.. is that if this plays the way Google wants, they will make the chips in the device, the radio it connects to, the internet network it goes on, the encryption technology it uses, the operating system it runs, and the apps it runs as well as every single thing you will ever want to do on them on their own servers with better than military grade security teams for everyone at home, work, play and
Rest of the consumer world 0
I bet this is why Google bid pi just laughing at all the big players when they bid on Nortel, they knew someone else would be desperate enough to out bid them and already were planning to buy motorola... see my highly imaginative article below haha...
Just got this in my email:
Dear MOTODEV member,
Today, Google and Motorola Mobility have announced their intention to enter an agreement under which Google will acquire Motorola Mobility. This is a positive step in Motorola Mobility's evolution and exciting news for the Android ecosystem.
As you know, Motorola Mobility has played a leading role in the advancement of the Android platform globally. With Google, we plan to continue to build upon our 80-year history of technology innovation and take Motorola Mobility's cutting-edge products and solutions to the next level.
We do not expect this announced transaction to have any immediate impact on MOTODEV programs or activities. As the transaction moves forward we will keep you informed as details become available.
As always, technology innovation remains the lifeblood of Motorola Mobility and the success of our developer community remains top priority for MOTODEV.
