Google just dropped a bomb shell in the Android ecosystem. They just announced their acquisition of Motorola Mobility. If you missed the Googleâ€™s announcement, find it here. Its very clear from the blog post that Googleâ€™s idea was to use Motorola as the weapon against Microsoft and Apple in IP battle. But will they succeed in their idea? But I think, this is the only thing Google can do at last to protect its Android OEMâ€™s. As Florian Muller, FOSS Patents blogger tweets,
Leaving the battle of Google with Apple and Microsoft, what about other Android OEMâ€™s. Will they be happy with Google making their own hardware and selling it and competing with their partners? We should wait for the response from OEMâ€™s like LG, Samsung, etc. So one thing is confirmed for now, No more Motorola Windows Phone rumors and speculations. Lets see how industry reacts.
