So  does  that mean  that   Google  failed to  integrate  Motorala's patents and its hardware Legacy  ecosystem? Does this also signal the  end of " Google's Mobile  Web Initiatives to take over the " Mobile OS/.HS  specially the hardware ( operating system  and Hardware)

However Industry experts  remain baffled about Google selling Motorola phone business to Lenovo for $2.9 billion -  "Google is selling Motorola's smartphone business to Lenovo for $2.9 billion, a price that makes Google's biggest acquisition look like its most expensive mistake  according to  a tech journal


The sell off allows " Google " clear the financial mess  headache that has plagued the internet company since buying Motorola Mobility for $12.4 billion in 2012.However Google is also keeping most of the patents that came with the Motorola purchase.

Almost half of UK internet users are going online via mobile phone data connections, according to the Office for National Statistics.Some 45% of people surveyed said they made use of the net while out and about, compared with 31% in 2010.

The most rapid growth was among younger people, where 71% of internet-connected 16 to 24-year-olds used mobiles.Domestic internet use also rose. According to the ONS, 77% of households now have access to a net connection.

That figure was up 4% from the previous year, representing the slowest rate of growth since the ONS survey began in 2006.Among the 23% of the population who remain offline, half said they "didn't need the internet".

While 71% of 16 to 24-year-old who went online said they used mobile broadband, just 8% of internet users aged over 65 made use of the newer technology.

The ONS survey also found a dramatic rise in the use of wifi hotspots - a seven-fold increase since 2011 - suggesting that the rise of 3G has done little to slow demand for free and paid-for wireless access.
