Let’s cut right to the chase on this one. As it stands, the editors of PhoneCan are content with Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility.
And we don’t appear to be the only ones. Which should be enough for most people to ask why. Why are so many companies accepting this purchase, even though they likely compete with Google and/or Motorola?
What are the real reasons behind the acquisition? What do Google and Motorola Mobility gain?
And what will the company be called (since Motorola Solutions is a separate company)? Googorola?
AT&T announced today the intended acquisition of rival and #4 US wireless carrier, T-Mobile.
The boards of AT&T Inc. and Deutsche Telekom AG, owner of T-Mobile USA, came into an agreement that allows AT&T to acquire T-Mobile, in exchange for cash and stock worth approximately $39 billion. Also, Deutsche Telekom AG will receive an 8% ownership share in the combined business.
No word on how long such an acquisition would take to be approved and finalized. It is unclear at this time if the federal government will have issue with any of AT&T’s offer.
