Google should develop a flying machine first and then declare they were not impressed with it. Not the other way.

re: Google Not Impressed With Motorola Smartphone Pipeline
And that is something they didn't bother to look at before buying Motorola?

re: Google Not Impressed With Motorola Smartphone Pipeline
Having owned a number of Motorola devices over the last few years (starting with my original Moto Droid), I can honestly say that what I like about all of these devices isn't the "wow" factor that seems to be all the rage in portable devices, but instead their solid simplicity. It seems this has always been the Motorola way from many years back, so throwing away this heritage would be a sad move in Google's stewardship of the Motorola brand! Now that Google owns the Motorola brand, why not use them to manufacture their Nexus line instead of a 3rd party.

I recently purchased a Motorola Xoom tablet, the first Android 3.0 tablet (and that's how it arrived), installing the available updates to Android 4, and I have been very satisfied with it, even without all the latest and greatest hardware. It is well-built and apparently easy to disassemble and repair too, and it has a reputation for being easily "modded" as well. I should get many years of good service from it, something that might not be possible from other tablets.

In my mind, that's the value in the Motorola brand, not the "wow" factor that everyone else is trying to sell!
