After China’s Approval, Google Finalizes Motorola Mobility Acquisition, New CEO Appointed
After finally getting China’s approval, Google has now finalized its acquisition of Motorola Mobility, one of the top dogs in the early 2000s.
This is probably speculation (there are murmurs) that Google will not be producing hardware branded as Google – hardware as in, smartphones. They’ll probably be doing some Research and Development, and at the risk of using buzzwords, for future disruptions. I know it all sounds too boring, but it need not be so. It’s possible that Google may come out with a range of Nexus devices, manufactured by this newly acquired company, but we have reports which suggest it will be Samsung for the next Nexus device, followed by HTC.
I’d rather like to see more HTC Nexus devices, in all honesty. I loved the Nexus One, and have always like the OG Desire. And the One series is pretty good too. Oh well.
Google appointed its own man, Dennis Woodside, as CEO. He’ll be taking over from Sanjay Jha.
