Google paid $12.9 billion for Motorola Mobility last month, and after countless hurdles to get approval from regulators Google announced they intend to keep Motorola Mobility as its own entity. 

“It's important it stays on its own battlefield.  We are not integrating Motorola with Google, we’re making sure it has everything it needs to win in its own space.  You shouldn’t expect full integration of the two companies,” Google’s Chief Finance Officer, Patrick Pichette, said. 

Although Google owns Motorola Mobility, there will not be a “Googlerola” brand in the near future.  Google now has access to a portfolio of 17,000 patents, which will give Google a competitive edge in the smartphone and tablet market.  Combine the patents and a mobile R&D department with Google’s thriving Android OS and the world has a smartphone/tablet conglomerate. 

Eric Schmidt, Google’s Chairman, affirms that the Motorola Mobility purchase is to help Google further its ideals of modernity through the acquisition of Motorola Mobility’s “products…people…[and] innovation.”

“We bought Motorola for the sum of the patents, the products, the people, the innovation,” he says. 

It is unknown how Google intends to wedge itself into Motorola Mobility’s structure, but as it stands Motorola Mobility will make its own product and consumers will continue to have “Motorola” devices instead of “Googlerola” devices.
