So if you follow the technology and business news , you will be bombarded by the news of Google selling off Motorola to Lenovo for around 3 billion US$, while it had acquired Motorola for around 12 billion , almost two years back. Google had earlier sold a part of the operations to Arris Group Inc. last year for about 2 billions . Google claims to have retained most of the android patents and hence it is believed to be all happy happy.. But still speaking in strict ‘Marwari’ (Americans read: Jew) terms – You still have around 7 billion loss to fill up .
Why all the big talk ?
It is believed that maintaining Motorola was getting costlier for Google in the long run and also Lenovo after acquiring Motorola shall become the third largest player in the market , also Motorola is an old is gold kindsa brand, still why such distress pricing for such a high profit prospective brand deal?
Reading Between the Lines
We have seen how recently Google had been going all advertisement friendly after its recent campaigns on TV and on air : (Read Here) so a seemingly loss is actually a big strategy in the making. Look at the recent acquiring of Electronics companies by Google (here) . From that we can come up to three salient observations
- Google wanted to get rid of a cancerous project and concentrate more on the Android app making, blah blah etc.
- Google is a huge company and doesn’t care for a 7 Bn US$ loss,
- Google wants to laugh out loud (lol) and introduce a stronger stiffer competitor for Apple & Samsung, just for the fun of it, you know.You know if its hit, its profit would anyways soar from the copyrights etc and if its a loss,then its all in good time and good humor.
However there is a forth facet to it.
- Google wants to go all solo on the Nexus projects .(As u might know Nexus have always been like the son conceived with the help of Samsung, LG etc, different fathers, u know lol). So Google might be looking forward to be solo making the next Nexus.
The meaning of the word Nexus is ‘connection of a series of dots leading to one thing or the other’. Dont you see a Google Nexus here??
