its all about the money money money ~ haha^^ even motorola is in google i still cant get in my country dam it! motorola back to motorola pleaseeee!
So...let me know if i understand this correctly...
Google bought Motorola two years ago for 12.5B and now it sells it for 3B...
Who is the CFO in charge? I am ready to replace him and be paid half of his current salary!
Hopefully the Chinese will look at Motorola as the ThinkPad line of mobile phones. This means the next Moto X just might see a FHD screen along with a microSD slot, AND an immediate worldwide availability.
MittMittins, 30 Jan 2014When Sony is going to sell its mobile division ? they are most certainly bankrupt. What are you talking about? you are probably another iPhone lover who understand nothing about Sony.
luisinhoens90, 30 Jan 2014What a bunch of non sense. Google and Samsung are still profitable. None of them are close eno... moreWell,
I am not sure what was behind getting Motorola in the first place.
I mean, you purchased Motorola and gave Nexus 5 to LG... pretty weird :/
MittMittins, 30 Jan 2014When Sony is going to sell its mobile division ? they are most certainly bankrupt. Where did you get that idea?? Sony is the only tier one manufacturer to be profitable besides Samsung and Apple. The Android makers losing money are LG, HTC and Moto. Why you turn things on the head? Sony has by far the most promising future out of these 4 brands, they even managed to pay off Ericssons share of the venture.

Motorola may have been legendary in times past in the U.S. and I think also China but everywhere else not so much. I think Motorola can help Lenovo mostly in the U.S. and doubtful everywhere else.
It did poorly even under Google so it will not help much under Lenovo. I think the main reason for the acquisition is for Lenovo to get into the U.S. market through Motorola - the brand is pretty much useless everywhere else.
Even its patent portfolio didn't help Motorola much against loosing the patent cases against it my Microsoft.
luisinhoens90, 30 Jan 2014What a bunch of non sense. Google and Samsung are still profitable. None of them are close eno... moreGoogle did not lose on Motorola deal directly, they sold off setbox division for $2.35B, then this for $2.91, and they still have the patents, which in itself are quite valuable. But they lost money due to operational losses.
So , after all google bought motorola for 11 million and sold for 3 million . what a profit they had made . amazing! even google screwed up mobile business and every one blames nokia .
Abaddon-ISJ5, 30 Jan 2014Google needs more $$$ to pay more license Fees. or else they will going to bankrupt like what ... moreWhat a bunch of non sense. Google and Samsung are still profitable. None of them are close enough to bankruptcy. Samsung gets billions not only from electronics, they focus on multiple markets including construction, insurance and heavy equipment. Google has a rich patent portfolio but it's biggest market is still software. Anyway, at first sight it looks like Google lost quite a few billions selling Motorola for less than 20% of what they paid in 2012.
So much for all the hype in the beginning.
And so much for the USA pride Motorola used to attack others, now its a CHinese company. Ironic.
Thats amazing, I wish it would focus on 2G EDGE phones for african market, Motorola used to beat others and it can be done again. I love Motorola
