Previously, we had folks from Google, including Andy Rubin himself, reassuring us that Motorola will operate independently after the acquisition by Google. Now it seems that we are getting the same comforting from Motorola. Motorola's Senior VP of Portfolio and Product Management Alain Mutricy has recently gone on record assuring that Motorola Mobility will remain a separate entity after they are acquired by Google. Since the acquisition announcement speculation over how this will affect Google's mobile platform has risen. Google has previously stated that after the acquisition they will have nothing to do with Motorola's manufacturing plans and that it is solely meant to expand their patent portfolio, but this is the first time we have heard from Motorola on the subject.
So far it sounds like things are supposed to be business as usual between the two. What do you think?
