    Two reasons why Microsoft Wins If Google Buys Motorola


    We have covered this story before, but there is new reasons why Microsoft is actually the beneficiary in the whole Google + Motorola deal. Reuters recently interviewed Walter Deppeler, president of Acer's operations in Europe, Middle East and Africa. This interviewed talked about what he thinks of the deal for Google to buy Motorola and how it will change things.

    If you are not aware, Acer makes phones for both Android and Windows Phone 7, so the deal effects them. Back to the interview; Walter Deppeler said the deal would put Google at arms length from Microsoft. Before, since Android is a freeware, Microsoft could not go after Google for patent violations. Now if they own Motorola, that means they are directly making money from Android, which opens the flood gates for Microsoft to attack.

    That was reason number one. Reason number two is very simple. Since Google has to keep Motorola profitable, that means they will be making great software and might be giving their devices some advantages. This means HTC, LG, and Samsung are left making phones to compete against Google backed devices. Microsoft on the other hand has a growing mobile OS, that has a promising future, no threat of being sued for patent violation, and not to mention no Microsoft endorsed hardware.

    Those two reasons help make Microsoft the true winner of this whole deal... Microsoft and the consumers of course.
