Politics, patents and products aside, the Google+Motorola combination will provide the industry a shot in the arm on innovation. Both these companies are leaders in the innovation space, and at this moment in our economy, America needs more innovations to be brought forth to create a market opportunity.

Why Innovation Matters - For any organization whether in products or services sector, innovation is the key to continous improvement for providing "Superior Consumer Experience". One may ask why?, well in a simple term, the goal is to be in business and not be dated in terms of the product or service portfolio. But let's at a few examples

1. If you do not innovate, you do not lead - for example both myspace and facebook became popular at the same timeframe, but one innovated and the other was slow to catch-up, and the rest is history

2. if you do not innovate, you do not create market - example - Apple iPod.

3. If you do not innovate, you do not compete - example - services industry - mygofer from Sears is an example of creating a new service experience, thereby creating a market to compete

4. if you do not innovate, you lose customers - example - Catalog orders from major retailers died with the advent of internet and mobile

We have a lot to look forward to from this acquisition and also this will bring several other innovations in Cloud Computing, Mobility - DW, BI and Applications and will potentially pave way for the ultimate pipedream of true CrowdSourcing for a lot of applications.

Lets hope the innovation spark will grow bigger and brighter.

Google is buying Motorola Mobility for #12.5 billion to ensure that Android phone market has more market (read patents, products). What is significant to note here is that Google has the infrastructure to provide Cloud services and already is the most used tool in our lives in form of Search. The move will also provide Google the Armour to counter Apple and will now be a real threat to Microsoft.

A Google tablet with all the bells and whistles will dent Apple and will grab market away from Microsoft.

This is definitely a strategy worth watching.......
