Why Google Re Sold Motorola at a $7billion Loss to Lenevo

By selling Motorola, Google is shifting to what it does best  and  is an acknowledgment that Google is better off focusing on its core competencies — making software and selling ads — particularly as the profit margins for phones are shrinking all across the world

Its the end of the  Google’s Tryst with  Motorola Mobility”.Motorola has just been jettisoned and dumped  by Google, which  the Search Giant acquired 2  years ago for a record  $12.6 billion .

Motorola’s  new parent will be Lenevo ,who paid $ 2.9 billion   to Google  for  buying off the earstwhile Mobile Giant . 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.

In the “Meantime “Motorola has lost nearly $2 billion since Google took over, while trimming its workforce from 20,000 to 3,800. Google had previously sold company’s set-top operations last year to Arris Group Inc. for $2.35 billion. Google is also keeping most of the patents that came with the Motorola purchase.
