Submission + - Google Buys Motorola for $12.5 Billion (mashable.com)

mhh91 writes: "Google announced Monday morning that it will acquire Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion.

Motorola is one of 39 manufacturers of handsets that use Google’s Android operating system.

Buying a hardware company is an unusual move for Google. The acquisition, Google said in a statement, “will enable Google to supercharge the Android ecosystem.”

Will this strengthen Google's position in the ongoing patent war with Apple and Microsoft?
