Humor: Lenovo’s bag of Motorola feels a little light
While some are still letting the news of Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola sink in, we think it marks the beginning of what will be a big year in the mobile technology space. Google spent a fair amount of money (or less depending on which accountant you listen to) to buy Motorola, but it is pretty evident that Google was simply after the patents.

From one angle, that might make it look like Lenovo is coming up with the short end of the stick, but Motorola is not without its pretty parts, even without patents.

Like with any monumental technological event, we can glean interesting insight to how the negotiations went between Google and Lenovo. While it is not exactly like a yard sale in real life, we suspect that there could be something prophetic in what appears to be a “make an offer” tag next to the Google barge (perhaps in case the parties are not such a big hit?).

I'm really excited on how Motorola will evolve with Lenovo backing 'em up. Lenovo smartphones are very successful in other parts of the world and I'm pretty sure they can have the same success in the U.S. thanks to the Motorola branding.

I hope this works out - I was not too impressed with Motorola after the Droid RAZR, and when Google came out with their own Moto stuff...

Joy of Tech WOULD wait until negative news about Motorola came around before they made a webcomic about it. I have never seen a more obviously biased tech comic in my life, and sadly, it's one of the more popular ones.

That's a cute comic lol. Anyway, I'm excited to see what Lenovo and Motorola can do together. With the help of Lenovo, Motorola will have nothing to worry about, the acquisition of IBM with Lenovo proves it.

I like how Lenovo's head is a long folded paper.
