    I wonder if the deal included the Motorola patents or not. After all, most people thought they only wanted Motorola for the patents to defend against lawsuits.

    Other site are saying that Google is keeping most of the patents with Lenovo getting about 2000. Also out of the 12.5B Google paid, they did originally sell the TV/cable box part of Motorola so the loss isn't as bad as 12.5 - the 2.91B Lenovo is providing.
