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.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
