Motorola’s Project Ara team being integrated with Google’s Android team

The Internet is buzzing about Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility and you may be wondering what is going to happen to Motorola’s Project Ara.

We have great news for you…. the Googlely project will remain with Google. It seems that the about $3 billion purchase of Motorola Mobility to Lenovo does not include the Advanced Technology and Projects group led by former DARPA director Regina Dugan, whose biggest project is the Project Ara modular phone.

According to The Verge, sources familiar with the matter said that the team of just under 100 people will be moving from their current offices in Sunnyvale to Google’s Mountain View office where they will be integrated with Google’s Android team. There Dugan will report to Android/Chrome OS chief Sundar Pichai, while maintaining “a more independent role.”

Anyone think that Project Ara could potentially become a Nexus some day? Thoughts?
