We are hoping that the joint company will amend the Motorola's UI overlay or just dump it all to choose the stock Android. And we are also hoping that Google will continue to offer unlockable bootloaders on Motorola phones on which the community is waiting for a year now. Only time can tell how does the merger will work and if the two companies will mainly combine or stay on individual operating units.

Hi Charles, 
 
Google's acquisition  of Motorola would really benefit the latter. As we all know, mobile phones nowadays operate mostly on Android OS or IOS for apple. Motorola is absolutely great on manufacturing devices and Google is excellent in developing software. The merger would definitely benefit both and would also cater to consumers by offering quality phones at cheap prices.

Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility

qa-featured

Motorola Mobility is the result of a split made by Motorola itself resulting to two new companies: Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions. It is a Chinese-American consumer electronics and telecommunications company which was established in 2011. It took on the company’s consumer-oriented product lines such as the cable modems and set-top boxes for digital cable and satellite TV services and the mobile phone business.

Motorola Solutions, on the other hand, kept the company’s enterprise-oriented product lines. Several months after the split, in August 2011, Google acquired Motorola Mobility for US$12.5 billion or $40 per share. Possible benefits of the deal include:

  • Motorola Mobility and Google mutually will speed up innovation and selection in mobile computing. As a result, consumers will get better phones at lower costs.
  • The patent portfolio of Motorola Mobility can help secure the Android ecosystem. Android is an open-source software and is therefore essential to competition in the mobile device industry making sure mobile phone carriers, hardware manufacturers, applications developers, and consumers all have option.

After only more than two years, Google announced in January 2014 that it would sell Motorola Mobility to Lenovo, a Chinese technology company, for $2.91 billion.
