+ - Google acquires Motorola Mobility

gl4ss writes: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Google-to-Acquire-Motorola-bw-4079820793.html?x=0 . (g&m))"today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Google will acquire Motorola Mobility for $40.00 per share in cash, or a total of about $12.5 billion, a premium of 63% to the closing price of Motorola Mobility shares on Friday, August 12, 2011. The transaction was unanimously approved by the boards of directors of both companies." So Motorolas frequently re-organized phone subsidiary has found now a new home, at a sizeable premium. Is this start of Google starting to defend Androids patent troubles and what will this mean for the rest of Android manufacturers?
