It's Becoming Abundantly Clear That Google Doesn't Want To Share Android Anymore

•, Steve Kovach

"Google is going to use Motorola's cable box business to force Google TV on people," they said. (Nope, Google sold off Motorola's set-top box business for $2.35 billion.)

"It's all about protecting Android with Motorola's patent portfolio," others said. (Yes, but it seems like Samsung is the one leading that effort for now.)

However, what people weren't saying, including Google, was that the Motorola acquisition would mean Google would start making its own phones and tablets, just like Apple does.

Google assured its Android hardware partners like Samsung, HTC, LG, and so many others that Android would remain an equal-opportunity platform, one where everyone will get a shot at making a hero phone. Motorola would be run as a separate entity, Google said when it first announced the Motorola acquisition.
