    Big news this morning, apparently Google has just got on one knee and made a big commitment to Motorola Mobility. It only cost about 12.5 Billion dollars. According to Googles blog, with the buy comes with Motorola's patents. Which could be a huge tool in defending some of those lawsuits. Plus just think... maybe this could mean our devices wont have Blur. Google did say that Motorola will still act like "separate business," which definitely throws in a wrench with other close companies to google like Samsung and HTC. Potential is definitely their for our google experience to get better, we will just have to see what happens. In my personal opinion i think this is solely a patent thing... Motorola has been in the business awhile and has quite the patent portfolio. Read more here: Official Google Blog: Supercharging Android: Google to Acquire Motorola Mobility. Good stuff.
