Lenovo to buy Google’s Motorola in China’s largest tech deal

Lenovo to buy Google’s Motorola in China’s largest tech deal

“Google paid $12.5 billion for Motorola in 2012. Under this deal the search giant will keep the majority of Motorola’s mobile patents, considered its prize assets.

“In the third quarter of last year, ZTE and Huawei accounted for 5.7 percent and 3 percent of all phones sold in the United States, respectively, trailing Apple’s 36.2 percent and Samsung’s 32.5 percent, according to research house IDC.”

After netting out losses and disposals, I guess that makes for a $9 billion investment in patents by Google.

Back in 2005/2006, Motorola was a mobile phone giant and the Razr was THE mobile phone to have in the USA. Change is constant, and the only constant is change.

This underlines the importance of investing in open technology platforms, like OATH.

Mobile platform independence is another reason for Mi-Token’s tremendous customer loyalty. As users swap between iOS, Android, Windows, Java, they get to keep running their Mi-Token 2FA soft tokens at no cost to the employer.

New phone? No problem. In less than 30 seconds users are up and running, with no hassle. The company gets a branded soft token on the users’ cellphone, with full audit trails and without cloud insecurity.

Come see us on the OATH booth, #709, at RSA Expo in San Francisco, and see for yourself.
