OEM partners supportive of Motorola Mobility acquisition, praise Google's defense of Android
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:
Bert Nordberg, President & CEO, Sony Ericsson:
Jong-Seok Park, Ph.D, President & CEO, LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company:
J.K. Shin, President, Samsung, Mobile Communications Division:
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.
