Which moto is the one that Google gutted and sold?

You could read the article, you know, it's in the second sentence. Motorola Mobility is the one Google acquired and then sold to Lenovo, this article is about Motorola Solutions

I did read it but was thrown off by the Google portion because I thought that deal was done.

Signing anything with Microsoft is like signing up with the devil himself.

I like the recent Moto devices way more than my Atrix... that one was buggy and fail hardware-wise on many aspects...
New Moto devices are affordable, good quality and have a thin skin.

Motorola Solutions is in the process of being bought out by Zebra...

This makes no sense, as Moto Solutions doesn't make any android or chrome devices and they pretty much emerged victorious under all lawsuits from MS.
Once Lenovo owns them though they will start paying because they do, but WSJ probably has their sht wrong as usual.

I do not know of any "lawsuits" Microsoft has had with any mobility company, EXCEPT the one Google owned, in which MS won:
And one overseas that they won as well:
This is the company (Motorola Solutions) that was left in business after it sold it's handset and all related patents to Google. They have been in on-again-off-again talks with MS concerning patents that MS owns and Motorola Solutions uses in tech to provide larger corporations communication equipment and management. To my knowledge, this company has NEVER needed to go to court with MS, nor has MS tried to take it to court. Only the Google-owned Moto.
Have a link to the lawsuits you mentioned?
