When it comes to Google purchasing the Mobile business side of Motorola it all depends on if they are going to go the iPhone route and use proprietary hardware or if they are just going to have a more integrated option for consumers. It really isn't good or bad.
Slightly off topic but relevant, I'm about to revert back to "dumbphones". All these "smartphones" people have - have more power than desktop computers had 10 years ago is crazy. Think about it like this. Your desktop could run photoshop an internet browser and a few other things now your phone can do all that too, yet it runs multiple apps, it's all really getting to the point where you would need to be a security expert to make sure your phone isn't compromised or acting in someway that it shouldn't.

Oh give it a break - Google simply bought MM for their patent potential.
Motorola Mobile is a dead soul today, as is RIM.
RIM's only value today - like Motorola is the patents they own.
