    The "marriage" between Motorola and Lenovo is finally a done deal. The two companies completed all the steps necessary to officially merge the two companies (with Motorola being acquired by Lenovo). Motorola has been working independently since the announcement of the acquisition was made. It seems probable that Lenovo will continue to let Motorola run its own side of things for the most part, although we doubt it will operate completely autonomously.

    It will be interesting to see what Lenovo can do with Motorola. They are famous for taking other brands and turning them into a success, like the ThinkPad and IdeaPad line in the past. It's likely that Lenovo will begin selling Motorola smartphones and tablets in China under their own well established name, even while they continue to sell Motorola branded products elsewhere in the world. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Here at DF HQ we tend to agree. This seems like a great team-up and we look forward to seeing what happens next.
