What seems like an eternity ago, Google announced plans to acquire Motorola Mobility. After receiving the final blessing from China, today the deal has been completed. In the midst of the closing current Motorola Mobility CEO, Sanjay Jha, has stepped down and is being replaced by Dennis Woodside. Along with Woodside, executives from Amazon, Google, and Visa will be joining the ranks.
What is not known, is what Google plans to do with Motorola Mobility. Will they enter the hardware game or will they simply keep the patents and spin the hardware division off? Either way, Motorola has some huge transitions ahead of itself and change is definitely in the air.
