HTC Pleased Over Google-Motorola Deal, Says it's “Good News”

Smartphone maker HTC has rejected the growing threats in the market about Google’s proposed acquisition of Motorola Mobility affecting other Android handset makers including HTC itself in a rather negative way.

In a statement, Peter Chou- HTC’s acting chief executive officer reportedly thrashed all the negative perceptions surrounding the Google-Motorola deal by saying that $12.5 billion acquisition is indeed “good news”.

Chou also emphasized on the point that HTC, as of now, holds no plans of launching its proprietary operating system, and hence it is very much inclined towards working in collaboration with both Google and Microsoft in order to "leverage partnerships", and at the same time differentiating its products through services and software.

He also stated that Google’s acquisition of Motorola will, in fact, benefit the company in its ongoing patent conflict against Apple over some of the company’s tablet and Smartphone devices.

"This acquisition is more to enhance Google's patent portfolio, to support us, to protect us, so this is good news," Chou reportedly said, Daily Finance reports.

Meanwhile, another leading name in the ever expanding Smartphone market Samsung is believed to be focusing on strengthening its foothold over the mobile software market in the wake of the Motorola Google deal.
