With Motorola acquisition, Google knows the importance of a Skypager!

It's all over the papers glowing rectangles. Google is acquiring Motorola. Here are some of the reasons many pundits are citing:

  • Get into the hardware business at last
  • Get closer to the living room and enterainment devices, the better to compete with Apple.
  • Block a mobile partnership path for Microsoft
  • Help defend Android against patent lawsuits by inheriting Motorola's patents.
  • Show it can spend over $12 billion and not break a sweat.

I shared some of this initial reasoning, but the true secret motivation only now occurred to me. Google gets the StarTAC phone and, more importantly, pagers!!!

Come on yall. Sir Mix-A-Lot ain't no fool
