    Who else would be interested in buying Motorola and can make use of it? I rather have Oppo buying them instead, if they could afford it.

    I can spell out for you what I think he is getting at but I don't want to put words in his mouth.

    If they continue with Motomaker for the US then they'll need to keep assembling them in the US. I guess we'll Have to see how popular MM becomes.

    No way. It's better for Motorola to be with a company that has brand recognition with plenty of worldwide distribution networks that won't compromise their creativity.

    We already know how popular it is. The Moto X probably won't sell as much once this Valentine's day deal is over. Whatever MM managed to do is what we can expect if they continue with it

    I say that of someone just bought an X they need not worry. The Moto X is running KitKat and still a very capable phone. Only tech nerds would worry, the average consumer does not apply here.

    http://www.engadget.com/2014/01/30/l...ecurity-cfius/

    Similar issues have been raised over Lenovo's plans to buy part of IBM's server division. However, as with IBM's ThinkPads before them, the company's x86 servers are already being made in China. "If you worry about penetration via your low-end server, you're going to have to figure out a way to monitor all servers, not just say kick the Chinese company out and we'll be safe," says Professor Theodore Moran, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

    Moran says there are three specific issues the CFIUS looks at, and none of them seem likely to affect the prospect that Lenovo will be able to go ahead with the Motorola deal. The first, having to do with allowing a foreign company or government to manipulate supply, doesn't apply, he says, because Motorola "represents a very small part of the market." The CFIUS also checks to make sure no sensitive or advanced technology is being leaked. "They're not even top-of-the-line cellphones," says Moran. Finally, there's the risk of the technology being used to allow foreign companies or governments to infiltrate US government or military systems via backdoors or spyware, something Moran also sees as a minimal risk, given Motorola's small market share.

    Many will have moved on from their Moto X by the time any change from the acquisition is felt at the consumer level. By then, we'll all have the chance decide if the new Lemoto XYZ is worth our time and money.

    Default Opposite Reaction to Lenovo buy out

    Moto selling to Lenovo sucks bad. I agree that it was a sad day in the mobile world.
    However, I am thinking opposite of everyone else. I want to BUY another Moto X now before Lenovo gets their mits on the phone, because no matter what, it is, and may forever be, my Favorite Android phone Ever.
    I went back to iPhone because I need one at work, but omg do I miss this phone. I think I have to buy one.

    Am I crazy?
    iOS and Android are BOTH great. iPhone 3, 3GS, 4, 4s, 5, 5c, 5S, LG Optimus G Pro, S3, S4, Note 3, Moto X, Nokia 520, Nokia 1520 (8.1)..
    Currently using LG G2 and iPhone 5s.

    I bought a second one, but I suspect the Moto X2 is already too far down the pipeline for Lenovo to mess with it at all.

    I believe the Moto X was approved by the FCC in May and released in August. I am not sure how long it takes the FCC to approve a device, but if it even takes 30 days, that means it was submitted some time in April for review by the FCC.

    It's basically February now. So they would have a bit more than 2 months to submit to the FCC if they are planning on keeping on the same timeline for the Moto X2 as the Moto X. That is not much time to tweak a design.

    While irrational, this news still totally bums me out. I really liked the new direction for Moto, and the "Motorola, A Google Company" tagline always made me smile. Like "yes...finally." The X really is such a great phone.

    Been said a bunch of places around the web today, but it does feel like this:

    Yeah I agree I liked Motorola being a Google company but I'm sure they'll still come out with droids and the X and it will be the same as it would have been. Hopefully the updates are still just as fast now though

    I doubt there'll be much change anytime soon, but the X line will never be the same now

    It won't be the same sure, but Lenovo has been really good in many areas. I'm sure they won't disappoint and if they do, I don't think it will be that bad.

    Let's hope they don't. The software strategy Moto was going with was going amazing. I'm probably still going to get the second X phone, since it'll likely have the near-stock Android that came with the original. Otherwise it's Nexus

    Only if Moto makes the phone. Can't believe no other company can get close to what Moto does with the radios. Even Apple sucks

    I thought they said that the deal wouldn't affect the method of production currently in use by Motorola.

    I read it somewhere on the interwebz. I'll find it again. Wasn't there also a conversation about it here in this thread? And I hope they won't lower their standards on quality.
