  • In what happens to be a full blood big deal after Microsoft bought Skype for $8.5 billion , Google too has followed suit and bought Motorola for $12.5 billion. 
    In what happens to be a surprise buy. Google bought Motorola in order to gain more control over the mobile market, especially after Android is becoming an increasingly important and popular OS for smart phones...
    So, as expected,  this is bad news to all mobile making companies, like Apple, Samsung, LG, and RIM,  who have been indirectly competing with Google's Android OS,  with their home made OS.

    Samsung, as expected, will be the biggest loser in this purchase as Google had earlier taken the help of Samsung in manufacturing Nexus series of phones,  that have become a instant hit among the masses. Samsung's bada OS too will face a really tough and overshadowing competition from Google, especially if it starts making phones now.

    But other mobile operators /makers will not need to worry much as Google has made it clear that its Android OS will remain open source and will be awailable for other manufacturers as well.

    For consumers, this means good news as you get the legendary innovation of Google combined with that of the sturdy mobile making of Motorola. This is a reason to cheer.
