My Guess: Microsoft to pay out 'billions' as part of Nokia deal | Computerworld


This article tells how Microsoft essentially bought Nokia for a whole lotta’ money.

If I had to guess, I’d say this transaction was what Motorola was hoping for when it split the consumer mobile unit from its enterprise unit. I bet there are some people in Arizona who wish they’d managed to get Microsoft’s billions headed their way.

But now this news surfaces: Motorola Buys Android Security Company 3LM. The message to me? “We’re serious about Android.”

If the first article’s stated rumors of a bidding war between Google and Microsoft for Nokia are indeed true, then it’s only a matter of time before Google finds Motorola attractive enough—less than perfect, but made more attractive with acquisitions like the 3LM one—and buys it up.

At least, that’s my guess.
