Google Won’t ‘Screw Up’ Android Eco-system with Motorola Buy Says Schmidt

Internet search giant Google Inc.’s chairman Eric Schmidt has revealed that despite the $11 billion acquisition of the mobile giant Motorola, it will make all the efforts to ensure that things do not “screw up” with Android.

The president of the Mountain View based search behemoth made the comment during a TV interview with Bloomberg. During the interview, he gave viewers some insight into the deal between Google and Motorola, which also happens to be one of the biggest signed by his firm in its 13 years of existence.

When asked about whether or not the acquisition of Motorola could pose some serious threats to its relationship with other Android partners, the president went on to say the company has no intentions of doing anything which could disturb the balance of the Android eco-system.

"The Android ecosystem is the [number one] priority, and... we won't do anything with Motorola, or anybody else by the way, that would screw up the dynamics of that industry," Schmidt said.

"We need strong, hard competition among all the Android players. We won't play favourites in the way people are concerned about,” he added.
