EU clears Google and Motorola deal

EU clears Google and Motorola deal

Google just took to their official blog to announce that the European Commission has approved the Motorola acquisition.  This doesn’t exactly clear the entire deal across the board as there are but a few hurdles remaining.  Nevertheless, Google is excited and looks forward to the final approval and getting a “supercharged” Android experience.

This is an important milestone in the approval process and it moves us closer to closing the deal. We are now just waiting for decisions from a few other jurisdictions before we can close this transaction. As we outlined in August, the combination of Google and Motorola Mobility will help supercharge Android. It will also enhance competition and offer consumers faster innovation, greater choice and wonderful user experiences.
