The world is eagerly awaiting to see what Google does now that the company has successfully acquired Motorola Mobility, especially OEM’s like LG, HTC, Samsung and more. Who can blame them for thinking there’s a possibility that Motorola could gain the upper hand if they obtain inside access to Android’s latest builds of the operating system? And while though Google’s plans are still unknown to the masses, there are still rumors afloat that the search giant may consider selling off the handset portion to Huawei as well as the cable box portion to another lucky bidder. In recent news, The Guardian has quoted Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, stating that Motorola will have “more investment in products and a lot more focus on Android and the tools even than they have today.” This seems to be corroborated with what newly-appointed Motorola Mobility CEO, Dennis Woodside, stated when the deal was final.
“Google has always been interested in hardware” and “my job is to make Motorola as successful as possible and deliver innovative hardware as a licensee of Android.”
So, here’s to hoping Motorola gets back on track quickly when it comes to smartphone product quality, innovation, services and sales. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the company so as to track their movement going forward, so stay tuned and feel free to offer up your own opinion in the comments section below.
