Google chief finance officer Patrick Pichette told the company`s annual shareholder meeting that there is unlikely to be a integration of the mobile products firm.
Google intends to allow its newly acquired Motorola Mobility to keep its autonomy as it battles in the hotly contested smartphone market, executives said.
`It`s important it stays on its own battlefield,` he said. `We are not integrating Motorola with Google, we`re making sure it has everything it needs to win in its own space. You shouldn`t expect a full integration of the two companies.`
The mobile products firm has `fantastic assets that need to be reset, reprioritised... and in that context think of Google in a way taking Motorola private.`, he added.
