Well, that didn’t come as a surprise at all. Google chairman Eric Schmidt confirmed that search engine giant is not just trying to save Android with Motorola deal but also planning some hardware business.
We did it for more than just patents. We actually believe that the Motorola team has some amazing products coming….We’re excited to have the product line, to use the Motorola brand, the product architecture, the engineers. These guys invented the RAZR. We know them well because they’re Google Apps users….[We like] having at least one area where we can do integrated hardware and software.
Well that makes it clear. We won’t be seeing Google dump Motorola’s phone business anytime soon. Get ready for all the hardware experiments from Google, which were gathering dust in the closet till now.
