Motorola Solutions Swallows Psion

Motorola Solutions — the Motorola not owned by Google — has agreed to acquire British mobile computing outfit Psion. Price: $200 million in cash, or $1.36-per-share — a 45 percent premium over Psion’s closing price on Thursday.

The deal will bring to an end Psion’s 32-year history as an independent company, though its ruggedized mobile computing products and in-car terminals will evidently live on in Motorola Solutions’ Enterprise Mobile Computing business.

The acquisition is expected to close in the fourth quarter.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
