    Default Google to acquire Motorola Mobility

    Straight from the horse's mouth!



    Um... can this mean faster updates for the Bionic in the future?

    And on a super vapor sidenote: I guess we should be seeing a Moto Nexus some time in the far future! Save your upgrades people! /sarcasm

    This is huge IMO. Now, Google can make their own phones. I think this is really gonna shake up the market. I also think that a Motorola/Google Nexus is pretty much a guarantee now.

    What Johnly said. This means we most likely won't have to worry about the bootloader encryption issues with Moto phones anymore, for one thing, as well as many other benefits.

    I'm not sure this was because Google was interested in an oem. This was done purely to protect android with struggling motos patent portfolio.

    Other sites claiming this will cause htc and samsung to go wp7, I doubt it. And I doubt we will see much google influence in moto.

    Wow... Not a bad move. I honestly thought Google would buy RIM (even though RIM's execs are notoriously stubborn) because they would get access to both the Nortel patent portfolio and RIM's enterprise business. RIM would be a bigger headache since they would take a lot more work to make them profitable.

    This will be a good move for Google though IMO.

    I don't know about this. Patents were definitely a huge reason for the acquisition, but they keep on dropping the line "supercharging the Android ecosystem"

    I don't think Google is going to be completely hands off with one of the best hardware makers in the industry.

    Also, how bad would it look if a Google-owned OEM didn't release timely updates to their handsets?

    I really doubt that HTC and Samsung will switch to WP7. Android has been a huge moneymaker for them and I doubt WP7 would be as compelling.

    Also, I believe I said MMI's shares would be worth 40 by the end of the year....look at that...

    I, for one, welcome MMI's new corporate overlords...

    Woah just saw this on yahoo news. Didn't even get to read the article and came straight here because I knew it would already be in discussion LOL. I'm expecting big things from Moto more so than I already have.
    I'd bet Cory's Right Arm on that!

    I see a few people claiming that this won't affect Motorola phones or bootloader - but what do they all have in common? They all purchased HTCs which means they are trying to justify their now regretful purchase.

    Even if it takes a little bit for it to have an affect (I think this is the case), if you consider the life of a phone to be 2 years this is still a very good sign for anyone planning on buying a Moto in the near future.

    So I guess we wouldn't be surprised to see:

    • Moto Nexii
    • Google influence to unlock bootloaders
    • Google branded handsets

    Its going to take some time before we see a collaboration coming out of this but this is excellent news. Looks like I will eventually return to my roots, no pun intended, once this gets squared away. Lets see how this shakes out and effects their product portfolio

    Looking into the future a bit, the pentile issue should become less of a problem as technology advances in the next year or two also (higher resolution would make subpixels less noticeable, or simply put, pentile may be moved away from). That's good news for you down the line too.

    Absolutely I wouldn't be surprised to see a new screen on their next LTE handset. (after the Bionic)

    Do you think we will see an Motorola Dual Core or Quad Core Nexus next year?

    Probably late next year, yes. I'd be surprised if the next (post-Nexus Prime) Nexus phone isn't a Motorola device.

    Moto owes its life to Google. On the verge of death and Google swoops in and saves them.

    Its just amazing how clueless Moto is. This is the best thing to happen to them now lets just hope Sanjay gets out of the way. Maybe he will be the first to get the boot. Lets hope so.
