Motorola Mobility acquired by Google ( microblogging ) performance in the past quarter still and runs counter to Google’s overall performance.
Google today released the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 fourth quarter earnings. The report shows that Google’s fourth-quarter revenue of $ 14.42 billion, a year-on-year growth of 36%; net profit of $ 2.89 billion, an increase of 7%.
This is a not too bright spot earnings, the index is normal, in line with the expectations of most people. But Motorola’s mobile business loss of $ 353 million in the fourth quarter, excluding one-time items, including a loss of $ 152 million, Google results drag.
Google CFO Patrick Pichette said in the earnings analysis meeting, Motorola Mobility’s performance will continue to be greater volatility. Google CEO Larry Page added, “We now live in a multi-screen world, if there is no smart phone, we will feel like naked.”
If you skip the analogy can be found, to enter the hardware Google had to do one thing. For Google, the original acquisition of Motorola for patent, to unified software and hardware, are designed in order to control the platform entrance:
1) Google started to search, while the search for people to obtain information entrance, Google developed its own browser – the browser is Internet is also a PC search the entrance.
2) Android it? This is an operating system, but it is also the entrance of the mobile Internet, but also the future of the people to access Google’s service entrance. Around the entrance, Google made the two most important things: First, the acquisition of Motorola, which is a more upstream entrance; mapping knowledge is developed and launched Google Now, people enter the mobile Internet portal externalization.
Therefore, hardware equipment the Android like Chrome to search, but the former is more important. PC search experience in different browsers is not much difference, but the support of different hardware devices on the Android vary widely. Google need the help of Motorola hardware products to improve support for Android.
Being so important, the integration process is clearly outside the expected long and difficult. From Google completed the acquisition of Motorola has been nearly eight months, Google’s main work is the Motorola mobile set-top box business sale, outsourcing and production lines. Motorola Mobile Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr M several new handsets released in October last year, but the impact is limited and does not cause mass destruction on the market.
The latest rumors, Motorola Mobile will launch this year’s Google I / O Developer Conference the X Phone phone rumors – In other words, Google to complete the acquisition in order to really take advantage of Motorola Mobile surrender standard works.
