+ - Google Buys Motorola for $12.5 Billion->

Submitted by mhh91
mhh91 (1784516) 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?"
