Apple copying again

When Google bought Motorola it acquired about 10000 patents. Now it's parting with 2,000 as part of the deal to sell it off. My maths is not great so correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that equate to almost $1.2 million per remaining patent? They must be REALLY good stuff!

I hope they bring back the old RAZR design style and get rid of the horrible Google style in the latest phones. RAZR m/i was IMO the best designed phone in existence. Hope they also bring some QWERTYs and SD card slots now that Google isn't demanding useful features to be removed.

Those US product lovers(Moto X) are actually got screwed up.. Google only told that it will be Made in US. Now also with 'Moto-maker' you can build it virtually from US.. Ha..Ha..ha..!
