Google Buys Motorola For 12.5 Million

Google announced this morning their recent purchase of Motorola for the price of $12.6 BILLION.  The deal will be completed by late 2011 or early 201.

This now means the Motorola will now only be manufacturing Google (Android) phones.  And although Google is deciding to keep their platform open, people are starting to see that Google is becoming more like Apple.  Also, besides Google now being able to design hardware for its software, Motorola also came with thousands of patents which are steadily increasing in value.

If and when this deal goes through, competition in the smartphone “world” will become a lot more competitive.
