    This will be useful to homogenize android device standards.

    Also, Samsung just hired one of the lead guys behind CyanogenMod.

    I'm hoping this means better standardization across mid to upper market android devices.

    im looking forward to this.

    its a very smart move for google because Droid is synonymous with the android OS. shoot my girlfriend, and probably along with millions of "non-tech savvy," people, thinks an android phone is a Droid, but abbreviated.

    meeh, for the most part, wall street suits know absolute close to shit about the tech industry.

    -amd bought ati, they said all is bad, but ati allowed amd to survive and now they have fusion.
    -apple as a whole. everyone was betting that would eat it, but now one the most, if not the most, valuable public company in the world.

    most recent ones i can remember off the top of my head, but i think google buying motorola is infinity times better than releasing google plus. almost every company that has a smartphone OS owns hardware too. MS will follow suit.
