Google hit us with a bombshell this morning when they announced that they would be acquiring Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion dollars. Despite Google's insistence that Motorola will remain a licensee of Android and the platform will remain open, many wonder what other partners think of the deal.
Google has reportedly spoken with several who have been supportive of the deal, as they see it as an essential move to defend Android. Here are three quotes from OEM partners:
Peter Chou, CEO, HTC:
“We welcome the news of today‘s acquisition, which demonstrates that Google is deeply committed to defending Android, its partners, and the entire ecosystem.”
Bert Nordberg, President & CEO, Sony Ericsson:
“I welcome Google‘s commitment to defending Android and its partners.”
Jong-Seok Park, Ph.D, President & CEO, LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company:
“We welcome Google‘s commitment to defending Android and its partners.”
J.K. Shin, President, Samsung, Mobile Communications Division:
"We welcome today’s news, which demonstrates Google’s deep commitment to defending Android, its partners, and the ecosystem."
Many had questioned when Google would step up to defend its partners from patent lawsuits, and it looks like they've made a huge move towards doing just that this morning. More to come as news rolls in.
