Google has decided to acquire Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion. In the first place, this is a great opportunity for Motorola. With Google's cash and control of Android, Motorola will be better positioned to compete in the smartphones segment. In the second quarter of 2011, Motorola shipped 4.4 million smartphones worldwide and was the eighth biggest smartphone player with 4.1% market share. Motorola is a major Android manufacturer and this acquisition will allow the company to focus on differentiation as this is becoming key to succeed in the much crowded Android space.
