Know Your Tech – January week 5



This week…

1) Google sells Motorola Mobility to Lenovo: Lenovo is shelling out $2.91 billion in cash and stock for Motorola. With this they are hoping to make a strong entry into US and thereby increase their overall presence. Motorola has been losing money in the recent quarters(6 and counting) and Lenovo will be hoping that the new Moto G will fix that problem soon.

2)  Motorola G is coming. Motorola is again in the news! This time thanks to Flipkart , we have the inside line on the launch of Moto G (slated for Feb 5th) Let’s hope the Exceptional phone maintains the exceptional price!

3) An Indian born at Microsoft’s top post? Microsoft needs a CEO and who better than Satya Nadella, who has been at Microsoft for over 20 years and has experience  leading the cloud services, server software, Internet search and business applications divisions of Microsoft. Microsoft is rumored to announce the new CEO in the coming week.
