    Just read that google is buying Motorola mobility for 12.5 billion. I hope this makes Motorola a pure google experience and that we get the updates like icecream first being aowned by google.

    Yeah i just found out!! google bought motorola for a very cheap price!!, now makes me feel a whole more special that i have my Motorola Atrix instead of taking the Inspire. Could this mean that recent motorola handsets, will have ICS sooner, maybe a couple of months after ICS comes out.

    I wouldn't hold my breath on the Atrix getting ICS anytime soon. The article said that Moto would be run as a separate entity, not integrated as tightly as the other companies Google has purchased. Although, I could be wrong and it would reduce the number of hoops that ICS would have to jump through to get onto Moto devices (AT&T for example).

    While it's cool news, I don't see the Atrix being the staple of Google or Android just because of this. Motorola owns a bunch of patents which is a big reason why Google also chose to buy them. I don't think we will see the impact of this acquisition until they release future devices.
