On another note, I'm glad Moto didn't announce a press conference to announce this acquisition.... this forum would have exploded with "Bionic Release Is Coming" speculation and then there would have been so much more depression from another false hope.
I wouldn't buy a motorola phone until the acquisition is complete. I can't see google releasing an update with blur included but at the same time I can't see them throwing away features that "normal" people have become accustomed to. The phones released in the near future could get stuck in limbo.
i'm not sure on this, but that's not part of Moto Mobility, is it?? so, probably won't have an immediate impact. but, acquiring a sister company shouldn't hurt relations/collaboration. thoughts of Google TV just went to a whole 'nuther level!!
