That’s a cover samsung j710fn Space Station

Motorola has lost a billion dollars a year under Google, give or take.

Speaking of Samsung, Re/code reported this morning that the

leading Android custodia cover samsung note 8 OEM will dial back its OS differentiation cover samsung n8020 efforts

in favor of a purer and more Google centric Android

experience. Another win for Google.

While Re/code attempted to paint the latter deal as some sort of

intimidation on Google’s part, it seems obvious that the cover samsung galaxy j5 reason

Google “won” both of these deals was Motorola: specifically,

Google likely offered to get out of hardware if SamsungGiven Samsung’s dominant position in the Android ecosystem, the

Motorola bargaining chip very cover samsung s8 firmate well may have been worth cover samsung galaxy grand i9082 severalAnd don’t sleep on Lenovo. I’ve long considered them the most

likely global Samsung challenger.

The only part I agree with cover samsung galaxy j5 mandala here is not counting Lenovo out. I do think Lenovo could use Motorola innards to stake out a share of the Android market. cover samsung tab s But given that, why would Samsung want Google to divest itself of Motorola Under Google, Motorola flailed. Under Lenovo, cover de iphone x it seems more of a threat to Samsung. From Samsung perspective, Google selling Motorola to Lenovo is custodia cover huawei p9 bad news, not good news. Samsung may well have been uneasy cover samsung galaxy j7 prime about Google buying Motorola back in 2012, but not after seeing it flounder the past 18 months.

I don have first hand sources familiar with the Google Samsung negotiations, but a solid second hand source echoed cover samsung galaxy note 2014 exactly what Recode reported Google told Samsung to fall in line, abandon Ron Amadeo reported on at Ars Technica back in October. I don think it cover iphone 4s etsy was much of a negotiation at all; custodia cover huawei mate 20 Samsung has little to cover samsung j3 2017 unicorno 3d threaten Google with, and Google has much to threaten Samsung with. Samsung only options would be to abandon Android for Windows Phone cover samsung s7 tpu or Tizen, cover iphone 5 despicable me or pull an Amazon and fork Android, cover samsung galaxy s5 personalizzate losing access to all of Google proprietary bits. None of those options are good for Samsung, at least custodia cover samsung s9 plus not today.

Samsung is far and away the leading Android handset cover iphone 4s a 1€ maker, but what leverage does that give them over Google None, until and unless they have a feasible alternative OS strategy. As it stands today, especially with Galaxy S4 sales falling short of Samsung expectations, when Google tells Samsung to jump, Samsung asks high for Google acquisition of Motorola, x cover samsung I fail to see how it was anything less than a multi billion dollar mistake. Their patents have proved toothless in court, and their devices have been disastrously unpopular. I see not a single way that Google is better off for having owned Motorola, and several billions that it is worse…
