EU will decide on the Google-Motorola deal on Feb 13

20 January, 2012

Previously set at January 10, the deadline for the EU to clear or reject the Google takeover of Motorola Mobility has been pushed back to February 13.



The reason behind the postponement is that the EU is waiting for undisclosed documents from Google.

Google made the deal with Motorola back in August of last year but had to await approval by the US and EU authorities to go through with the takeover.

The Search giant will come into possession of a generous patent portfolio is it acquires Motorola, which ultimately will come in handy in Android's court battles against Apple.
