Is the Motorola/Google merger a game changing event?
hughye 2 years ago
So Google had an extra $12.5 billion to spend, and Motorola was just sitting there bored...
Motorola's stockholders voted pretty darn close to unanimously to accept Google's multibillion dollar merger offer. What does this merger mean in the big scheme of things. There were already Android phones manufactured by Motorola, so what does Google get out of this? I can see what Motorola gets (see that $12.5 figure). What impact is likely from this merger, assuming it goes through?
