When you plunk down the kind of cash Google did to acquire Motorola Mobility, approximately $12.5 billion or $40 a share as you recall, there has to be heightened expectations.
“We are excited about the opportunities to build great devices capitalizing on the tremendous success and growth of Android and Motorola’s long history of technological innovation,” wrote Google CEO, Larry Page in a recent Investor Relations update.
After reading Motorola’s LapDock: The next Google ChromeBook?, one realizes there definitely are potential opportunities.
We all want and expect a next-generation Chromebook and Motorola has the capability to engineer a phone-powered Chromebook. The benefits, as the article expands on, would include a cheaper price-point, always being connected and the opportunity to tie in Android and the Chrome OS.
Again these are merely speculations. But in the absence of any solid news on the Chromebook front, expect more rumors to surface until Google I/O sets us straight in late June.
