Mobile: Right Again - Microsoft Was Interested In Motorola Before Google Bought It

Ah-ha!  

The story so far:  Microsoft was interested in Motorola before Google bought them for a 60% premium  Brilliant move by all three involved.

Google got something it wanted, patents, while Microsoft likely jacked up the price for Motorola, and Motorola investors walked away with a lot of money (in cash) from a dying company.

I'm still waiting to see who the "several parties" are discussion to buy Motorola.  I am guessing it is Dell or another PC company looking for a shortcut into the mobile game.
