In case you forgot, a little over a year ago Google purchased Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion. Motorola Mobility is a spin-off company of Motorola which has two divisions: Mobile Devices which makes phones and Home which makes set-top-boxes and cable modems.
When the purchase was first announced, it sounded like a dream come true for the Google TV division. Google could have powered millions of set-top boxes with Google TV, but they did not. Now the word on the street is that Google is planning to sell off the set-top-box portion of Motorola Mobility for roughly $2 billion.
Motorola is declining to comment at this time, so this is entirely speculation at this point. We’ll keep you updated as more news becomes available.
