Motorola's Home Business Selling To Arris For $2.35 Billion
Here's what Arris had to say about the deal: "Acquiring Motorola Home will enhance Arris' ability to provide next-generation consumer video products and services, supporting a more comprehensive product offering while also accelerating its ability to deliver a comprehensive set of industry-leading new products for broadband to a wide spectrum of customers. The transaction will increase Arris' patent portfolio and provide a license to a wide array of Motorola Mobility patents."
It remains to be seen what Google's long term strategy for Motorola Mobility is. They've promised not to give Moto phones priority access to updates, and we haven't seen Moto's handsets change dramatically since the takeover. Either way, here's something to put on the ledger.
