It gets a little lonely running the late night shift here at Phandroid. Since, like most persons, I have an opinion on everything and since I was feeling a bit chatty — I figured I’d share with you guys my thoughts on exactly what we should expect from the now complete, Google/Motorola merger: absolutely nothing.
Ok, maybe that’s being a bit harsh. There are some big changes taking arrange. For one, Google is replacing current Moto CEO Sanjay Jha with Dennis Woodside, Google’s previous president of Americas region. There’s also rumblings — though nothing official — that a handful of top level Motorola executives will also be given the boot, replaced with fresh new Googlers.
Sounds great right? Google, now finally in full control of Motorola, has nobody to stand in their way. This is what is leading some “Android enthusiasts” to believe that this will become Android’s new golden age. With Google at the reins, it makes sense that will now finally start pumping out shiny, new, vanilla Android devices from Motorola’s factories, right? Not quite. And I’m not saying this because I don’t want it to happen. Really, I do. It’s only because of Google previously mentioned that they would continue to operate Motorola as a separate entity (just filled with ex-Google execs). And I’m inclined to take them at their word.

Love it or hate it, Motoblur isn’t going anywhere. And who could blame ‘em. The thing is, not only do manufacturers rely on their custom UI’s and skins to differentiate themselves from the competition,
