25 May 2012

Google has confirmed it has acquired Motorola Mobility, following business discussions between the two firms.

In a blog post, chief executive officer of Google Larry Page described Motorola as a "great American tech company", highlighting some of its strengths as the creation of the first ever cell phone and its 80 years of innovation.

The company has "driven the mobile revolution", he declared, calling the telephones people hold in their pockets "supercomputers".

Dennis Woodside, who is described by Mr Page as a "long-time Googler", will take over the position of Motorola Mobility chief executive officer from Sanjay Jha.

Other jobs Mr Woodside has completed include building the Google brand throughout Russia, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East, while he also boosted the firm's revenue while president of its Americas region operations.

"I've known Dennis for nearly a decade," Mr Page declared.

Mr Woodside claimed computers have a central position in "the computing revolution".
