An Expensive Mobile Phone Purchase.

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!


  1. as per, google will run motorola as it is.

    btw, 'moogle' reminds of the the cudly creatures in FFIX :)

  2. I doubt it since Motorola's Mobile division isn't doing too well. I'm sure there will be a greater integration between Moto products and Android/Chrome OS.
