Google has gone shopping for a mobile phone... and it has decided to buy Motorola. A total sum of US$12.5 Billion was paid for the mobile phone division of Motorola... which I'm guessing also includes a healthy patent portfolio or at least a lot of access to certain technologies.
This instantly bumps Google up to the #8 spot as a mobile phone manufacturer, aside from being the #1 Smartphone OS provider with Android.
I wonder what will their new division be called? Hahahahaha!
