Yep, it's official: Google is buying up Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion dollars, making it the largest acquisition in Google's history. So this should clear any doubts about Google's intentions once and for all: Google is branching out way beyond the realm of search engines and advertisement. It looks like Google is paying back Motorola for years of loyalty to the Android ecosystem. Find out how this merger could revolutionize the smartphone market.
Google's decision to acquire Motorola is logical and part of a larger strategy of pushing Android phones to the top of Google's agenda. As America's leading phone manufacturer, Motorola has been thus far unable to compete with Apple and larger Asian manufacturers such as Samsung and LG. Having now been taken under Google's wing, new Motorola Google phones could potentially launch a lethal attack against the iPhone.
Obvsiously, we're all extremely anxious to hear about the upcoming plans of the new "Google-Motorola" and whether there are any new Android phones on the horizon. On thing is for sure, however, Google is switching gears and could potentially become one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers.
