Google dumps Motorola phone unit for about $3B. They previously dumped the Cable TV unit for $2.35B. They paid $13B. So they got a stack of patents for almost $8B. I still remember talking to a key guy involved in Mot's ill-fated tablet. "Oh, video really isn't important." I can't say I'm shocked that Google wanted out.

Considering cash and taxes, this was a better deal for Google than I thought.
