Oh, hell yes! Hopefully this equals the death of BLUR!

Stock Android UI on Moto phones from here out? Huge +1 for me.

Sometimes it's impossible for us (the public) to know every detail about a corporate buyout. My guess is Motorola would still run independently of Google; it's just that Google now has majority ownership of Motorola's patents. I think Google's goal is to take control of their patents to mediate this fight against Apple, and not their business operations. I wouldn't be surprised if Apple now tries a hostile "outbid" against Google for control of Motorola if that's even an option. It may be smart of Apple if they were to do that, I admit.

Google must protect android, which means protection for their hardware manufacturer. Google does not have one dedicated hardware department for a reason. They do not intend to use moto as a hardware manufacturer. Moto is being consumed because google must protect it's partners.

Apple needs to be double tapped once it's down, to make sure it's down. I admire what apple has done, really I do. I loved their ipods before android came out. The fact of the matter is apple is abusing the system, submitting a patent for pretty much everything. I'm surprised they have not tried to patent the "hardware wake button" that gives power to the screen, or how you must press your finger on the display to select...unless someone else has the patents.

Bottom line is, grow up.


EDIT: Only other company worth purchasing would be nokia...but the boat has sailed on that one long ago. What I'm really curious is...did google just lose out to microsoft or did google never have any intention of touching Nokia. Samsung will never sell their mobile division at this rate, same goes for HTC.

The patents are valuable no doubt, but not 12.5 Billion + a bloodsucking company valuable.

I have to think that google plans to "renovate" Motorola.

Yes, actually. Now I just re-read this part:

Quote:
Our acquisition of Motorola will increase competition by strengthening Google’s patent portfolio, which will enable us to better protect Android from anti-competitive threats from Microsoft, Apple and other companies.

The combination of Google and Motorola will not only supercharge Android, but will also enhance competition and offer consumers accelerating innovation, greater choice, and wonderful user experiences. I am confident that these great experiences will create huge value for shareholders.
Google's MAIN cause is to increase their patent inventory to help fight against Apple/Microsoft lawsuits, but the second paragraph implies Google does plan to support Motorola's devices. Motorola phones will likely have the true Android experience straight from Google like the Nexus, and receive updates more efficiently. Honestly I'm excited for it. I want a dual-core or even quad-core, hardware accelerated, NFC, 4.5" Android phone straight from Google. Motorola's build quality is pretty good, and their cable modems are great. With Google's resources, this could be very good for the Android users. Sick Android phone straight from Google for $200 with any carrier contract? Take my money. Now.

It's interesting that "Google is paying a premium of 73 63 percent compared with Motorola Mobility’s 20-day trading average price before today." They must really want the company.
Fixed
edit: aah it seems you are right
"That’s 63 percent more than Motorola Mobility’s closing price on the New York Stock Exchange on Aug. 12. "

Google (GOOG) isn't afraid to go on shopping sprees. With more than 75 acquisitions since 2006 -- including the $3.1 billion buyout of DoubleClick to bolster its online advertising presence, and the $1.65 billion buyout of YouTube -- the cash-rich tech giant has made these deals a normal part of its growth plans.
But Google's plan to snatch up Motorola Mobility (MMI) for about $12.5 billion is by far the most dramatic in the history of the company. The partnership, announced Monday, could forever change the makeup of Google and the landscape of the smartphone business, and it might finally create a gadget that can give Apple (AAPL) and its iPhone a run for their money.
This will be interesting

Reading that last sentence "and it might finally create a gadget that can give Apple (AAPL) and its iPhone a run for their money".

Market share and popularity doesn't prove the iPhone is better then the dozens of Android-equipped phones that show it up. I'm not bashing or taking sides, but they already are slamming heads together for the best smartphone.
