Chipmonk. Droid was the secret to Motorola's rebirth. Prior to that, they were toast. And in the current smartphone market, without Droid, they would have been less than toast. Crumbs at most. 'Retirement' isn't a 'ding' for Jha, it is a cash event.

I assume that when the sale closes, we'll see disclosure on how much cash Sanjay Jha walks away with. My guess is that it will be enough that he will never have to think in terms of personal finance ever again.

With a name like Jha I'd take my fat stacks down to Jamaica and live like...well, Ja for the rest of my life.

Serves him ( Jha ) right for giving Google cred by jumping to Droid in preference over home grown Operating System and then letting them on to Moto's treasure trove ( 17,000 Patents ) ! ironic ? karma ?

I would second that. I am sure Jha will be one of the most sought after execs until he finds the opportunity he is interested in.

something tells me that Jha won't be on the street begging any time soon. I expect him to land firmly on his feet with a competitor.

I wonder what Google will do with the set-top box division. Motorola Mobility is the largest cable set-top box maker in the world. Opportunity for the resurrection of Google TV perhaps?

@kinnar: you are basically saying that Motorola could/should replace Samsung as the manufacturer of the "official" Google smart phones, the Nexus series, and further improve on what has been done so far. Not a bad proposition...

Google should use this platform to design a completely compatible handset with the best possible qualitative output as compared with Apple iPhone. Due to total integration from Hardware to Software Apple is being able to provide a very quality piece of engineering. Google can also come out with this kind product over android using this purchase of Motorola Mobility.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
