The internet giant has made a deft move by proposing to buy Motorola Mobility after which it will be entitled for four times the number of patents that Microsoft and Apple jointly acquired.

Google will spend $12.5 billion on this deal with which it will acquire 17,000 patents. If the application filed by Motorola works then Google will acquire around 25,000 patents.

The approval of the board of directors of both Google and Motorola has been received.  The two companies may contribute Google TV in terms of technology.

Google was almost out of competition because of its poor patent portfolio, this move had become very essential for Google in order to build its patent portfolio.

"This acquisition will not change our commitment to run Android as an open platform. Motorola will remain a licensee of Android and Android will remain open. We will run Motorola as a separate business. Many hardware partners have contributed to Android's success and we look forward to continuing to work with all of them to deliver outstanding user experiences." said Google's chief executive officer Larry Page, in his blog post.

The market is now set to see innovative products and the patent war may end up in a win-win situation for every one especially for consumers.

Google has received many common complaints which say that it is efficient with product development but not with customer service. This acquisition is likely to solve this problem.

The major Motorola Patents included are key smartphone technologies including wireless email, proximity sensing, software application management, location-based services and multi-device synchronization and wireless communication technologies such as WCDMA (3G, GPRS, WiFi and antenna design.

But as they say there are two faces of a coin. Gartner research director Michael Gartenberg says, "The repercussions are huge, it shows that it's so hard to look at this market beyond the short term because we've seen so many twists and changes.”

He further adds, “Google has the resources to shake up everyone else's business model if they so choose. Google can now undercut everyone if they choose in terms of premium handset pricing, go to the carriers with a different set of terms."


Apple accident posted few purported images of Ipod 3G on its website but removed them later. As per a Vietnamese website the upcoming version of the Apple iPod Touch may eature 3G cellular network connectivity along with the WiFi option.

The 3G Ipod will be able to use Apple’s cloud music service efficiently and will also get the much needed mobility while staying connected to the data network.

Sources also reveal that developers have discovered the new OS 5 for Apple iPod devices. OS 5 features mobile network connectivity over 3G and Location services (GPS).

Though Apple has not yet announced anything officially in this regard yet it is speculated that apple will soon release some information about this product. We may locate this device itself in action in 3G soon and till then let us eagerly wait for it.
