Execs from Android phone makers now facing the prospect of a Google-owned Motorola remain unfazed, at least in their public statements. Reuters collected a couple of quotes at the IFA consumer electronics fair in Berlin from high-level folk like Nikolaus Scheurer, head of product marketing at Sony Ericsson.
"Google confirmed that this is not making Google a hardware manufacturer. I assume the global market share of Motorola is somewhere around 15 percent in Android. I think everybody would agree that it does not really make sense to jeopardize 85 percent of your business," Scheurer said.
