Google stepped up its assault on the smartphone and tablet computer market today with the £7.7 billion acquisition of handset maker Motorola.
The search engine group is to pay 12.5 billion US dollars for Motorola Mobility in a deal which gives it direct control over one of the largest manufacturers of mobile phones running Android, Google's own operating system.
The price, a 63% premium to the value of Motorola Mobility at the end of last week, makes the deal the largest ever undertaken by the California-based company and was hailed by Google chief executive Larry Page as a "natural fit".
Motorola Mobility is already a partner of Google, but will remain as a separate business and licensee of Android, which will also remain an open platform.
 

D.O.A.

These are great days we're living, bros
Kevin Kutz, a spokesman for Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft, declined to comment on what Google’s purchase of Motorola Mobility might mean for the litigation. Kristin Huguet, an Apple spokeswoman, also declined to comment.
