Google Looks to Motor Over Android Profits
You can tell how much Google cares about its Android “partners” by the price Motorola plans to charge for its smartphones.
The head of the mobile-phone company now owned by the search heavyweight laid out an aggressive pricing strategy for the firm’s future devices when speaking at the All Things D conference this week.
Dennis Woodside said that, thanks to Motorola’s small smartphone market share, he can “attack” the market in ways that giant companies with giant gross profit margins can’t. “Every product in technology…the price has gone [down] because component costs have fallen.”
