Did you know Motorola Mobility is owned by Google? If you keep yourself updated with what’s going on in the tech world, you obviously know. But like you, many people were wondering why there isn’t any device from Motorola that has a very Google-like feel to it. Phones and tablets like Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 are manufactured by third party companies; not Google-owned Motorola. But the wait is over. Motorola is finally coming back in the game with a whistle-blowing phone due later this year. And just before that, the company has a new logo with the tag, “A Google Company.”
The new design with all small caps, thin and very beautiful font representing the word “motorola” very much looks like the recent redesign of all Google services. Even if the Google logo was not there, you would have felt the presence of latest Google design in the new logo. Of course, you would have to know that Motorola Mobility is owned by Google, though.
Google earlier told The New York Times in an interview that the acquisition of Motorola Mobility helped Google get a lot of patents previously owned by the company. But Motorola had ongoing deals with other partners for which Google had to wait over a year before they can finally come up with a new Google-branded logo for Motorola Mobility. Not just that, the tech world is over curious about the upcoming smartphone, Motorola X Phone, that is designed and made in America and obviously runs on Google’s insanely popular and ever-growing smartphone OS, Android.
A new logo just before the phone launches is definitely a good decision. Now we can hope that Google will spice up the competition in smartphone market with Motorola Mobility. What are your hopes?
