Google making phones? This could be interesting, especially for the modding community. Google spec'd phones (Nexus One, Nexus S) are often cutting edge hardware. Motorola has been making some great phones for Android as well. Although it would be nice to see them on carriers other than Verizon.
Google agreed to pay Motorola Mobility $2.5 billion if the deal falls through, a person familiar with the matter said. Motorola Mobility would pay $375 million if it decided not to sell to Google, the person said. Jennifer Erickson, a spokeswoman for Motorola Mobility, declined to comment on the breakup fee, as did Aaron Zamost, a spokesman at Google.
