Google to give Motorola Mobility its own space

Google-Motorola-Merger-Approved

The acquisition of Motorola Mobility by Google is considered as one of the biggest moves in the technology industry. $12.5 billion isn’t a small amount, right? Word was on the street that Motorola will completely merge in with Google, and we might see a time when there would be no Motorola phones, except we will see Google-branded phones with Motorola hardware. Ultimately, nobody knows what Google is actually up to. Google’s chief finance officer Patrick Pichette said:

“It’s important it stays on its own battlefield. We are not integrating Motorola with Google, we’re making sure it has everything it needs to win in its own space. You shouldn’t expect a full integration of the two companies.”

Motorola is the maker of some of the best Android phones, and we just can’t miss the Motorola RAZR, the sexiest Motorola yet. Though there were also such rumors that with the acquisition of Motorola, Google will restrict Android only to their own branded phones, but they agreed to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce’s condition that they will keep it free for at least five years, so that’s really a relief.

However, I hope to see some delicious devices from Motorola this year, and we recently saw some leaked shots of some upcoming Motorola devices like the Atrix 3 and the RAZR HD.I would love to see a day when Google will launch their own branded device with Motorola hardware. Tell us what do you think about it in the comment box below.

    This is a real shame, as Motorola continue to show nothing but contempt for customers, with late and buggy updates, and locked bootloader. With Samsung, HTC and,Sony already updating their models to ICS moto has still to do so. Yes they may make some nice hardware but I honestly thought their acquisition by Google might change their appaling after sales service. Unless this changes, I for one will never consider another Motorola phone again no matter how great the hardware is, if it doesn’t get timely updates, what’s the point?

      The Droid Razr has already received ICS. Most likely the Droid Bionic will be receiving ICS next month. Unlike other manufacturers, Motorola thoroughly tests their OS updates to make sure they work properly which is why in many cases they take longer to release updates than other manufacturers. Motorola’s stock Android builds usually perform better than 3rd party Android builds too.

        Not my experience of Motorola upgrade, my milestone was left disabled and worse than before after an upgrade to fix bugs, and promised upgrade to dext never arrived. Motoblur is generally considered the worst manufacturer skins, and I’m not going back to be bitten for a third time. Check out out the owners forums for mostly unhappy customers

        • smarterthanuare

          The skin on the Droid Bionic and Razr is superior to every other manufacturer’s Gingerbread skin. For a supposedly aging processor, these two phones have zero lag and rock solid stability. Even the Gingerbread browser on these two phones is as fast as the stock ICS browser on vanilla Android.

            Motoblur is THE worst manufacturer skin , check out the owners forums for your proof, and thanks to the locked bootloader you can’t even flash a decent rom on them either! Can only speak from my own experience with Motorola but that is it and why I’m never having another!

    Why would Google want to make a Google phone with Motorola hardware instead of Samsung which they already use? Have you seen Motorola hardware? Terrible screens, questionable battery life (except MAXX).

    • rich_bown

      And locked bootloader!

        One of the reasons I always favor HTC phones.

    Google should just keep the patents and best people and sell off the rest og Motorola in bits and pieces

  • kEiThZ

    They need to impose one rule on Motorola: Stock everything.

    Stock Android and Chrome OS instead of Webtop OS.

    They should take control of the set-top boxes and make Google TV a premier division. They should also lock-down the Android eco-system and make phones like Samsung and finally take control of the fragmentation/OS releases. I can’t wait for Google to offer internet service and tv service like the pilot program they have going on in Kansas City I believe.
