    Dept. Of Justice Approves Google-Motorola Deal








    The Department of Justice gave its seal of approval to Google’s proposed takeover of U.S. cell-phone maker Motorola Mobility on Monday, just hours after European regulators also gave the deal clearance.

    The $12.5 billion acquisition positions Google to move into the device market and potentially into more direct competition with companies like Apple.
    Google wants to own the hardware to pair with its Android operating system for smartphones, and could use the acquisition to protect patents as well as to develop other devices such as home gaming systems.

    “The combination of Google and Motorola Mobility will help supercharge Android,” Google’s Don Harrison said in a blog post earlier in the day. “It will also enhance competition and offer consumers faster innovation, greater choice, and wonderful user experiences.”

    The European Union earlier on today approved the deal, which still needs the approval of regulators in several other countries, including China.

    Does this mean that MotoBlur is toast? Will Google unlock bootloaders as well?!

    Aaww Moto Blur isnt all that bad at this point in time. I know we all have our wants and preferences...but it isnt that bad. It got better with the GB update for the Droid X1.

    Now that its been approved...let the good times roll....hopefully... It would be amazing if all of a sudden bootloaders on all current Moto phone were magically unlocked...

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
