"Azingo has a number of mobile oriented products on its books,
however one, its Mobile 2.0 operating system is sure to raise
eyebrows. The Linux based operating system seems to go head to head
with Google's Android operating system that has been embraced so
successfully by Motorola.
"The news was picked up when an employee updated his Linkedin
profile by saying that he now works for Motorola 'by acquisition'.
The acquisition itself isn't particularly surprising, given that
the firm's Co-CEO, Greg Brown told Bloomberg only last week that it
was time for Motorola to 'do some non-organic things'. We assume
that's corporate speak for buying smaller companies."
