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?
As we posted earlier, application prices will now properly display in local currency. This is great news for those of us who use Android because it removes one of the many confusing things about the market.
This is an extremely positive development for the market, and coupled with the 30+ new countries that finally support paid applications. The Android Market has come a long way since it first launched, but it still has a lot further to go before it’s the product that it should be.
I’m a fan of Android. I own a Droid phone, and I’ve gotten friends and family alike to adopt the platform. It’s improved significantly in just the year I’ve owned my phone, but when it comes to the market, there haven’t been many improvements, and my frustrations with it shouldn’t exist because they’re not hard to implement.
