Lets put this in a time capsule and revisit it in 5 years:
..Rubin also said the simple mathematics of Motorola’s single-digit marketshare would keep Google from overly interfering. “Even if I was completely insane, it wouldn’t make any sense for me to think that we could get Motorola to be 90 plus percent marketshare,” and compete with the huge field of Android vendors, he said. “It just isn’t gonna happen.”
By gosh, we couldn’t possibly compete with third parties distributing our own platform! We are just a search engine, how would we steal all of those customers?
In 5 years, Google will have 90% of the Android phone/tablet market share courtesy of Motorola.
