After a few Nexus One limitations Google must have jolted out of the reverie that even if they dictate all the specifications to their ‘outsourced’ HTC, success rate can’t be cent percent. If this worry was only one of many agenda in the giant’s meeting lists for sometime back, now it has become news for everyone around the world.
Ever since speculations of Motorola’s disintegration found hints of authenticity, the deal with Nokia Siemens Networks about the sale of network assets on the cards, their handset division comes out as a major lucrative segment for shoppers. And so, heads at Google turned to neighborhood- Motorola.
Motorola has been facing some serious pitfalls from quite sometime. Besides the cut throat competition given by resurgent Finnish Nokia, the US based firm has more concerns than only the smartphone sales. So one way to sail across this stormy season of financial hassles is to put its handset division in the showcase.
The question is, is Google the right buyer for Motorola? The bank accounts say yes! Google has reserves of USD 21billion to Motorola’s handset business which costs around USD 2billion. Google does have their vested interests in the deal, their concern, however, would be to poise the new ventures with its core competence.
