or may be learn about different hardware systems to improve their software offering. I said it when Google bought Motorola Mobility, Google have to be very very careful not to scare mobile phone manufacturers off Android.

Thanks for this article, but not big news here. Google is trying to establish a relationship with everyone. I believe their goal is to obtain a piece of the pie in every area.

I believe Google wants to maintain the already good relationship with various hardware vendors, trying to avoid favoring Motorola Mobility. When I read the title of the article, I am curious why Google would choose LG over the other partners that Google already has experience working with. Towards the end the article, after reading Nexus TV, I think choosing LG makes a lot of sense. Google TV, by itself, doesn't seem to be very attractive to a lot of consumers. I bet Google must have come up a better plan of integrating TV and mobile devices to enhance viewers experience. LG would be an obvious choice given their experience on building TV. I can't wait to see the next generation smart TV.

Google with Android, Intel with Atom and LG with good manufacturing will be very good combination for developing new product. However, marketing and providing longivity to this product may be little more challenging.

I would bet that Motorola is also working on the next phone for Google. If not, they really were only purchased for the patents.
