Lenovo acquires Motorola and some of its patents and other news from Jan. 29, 2013

The big news this evening comes not from the Apple world, but from rival Google as it sells off Motorola to Lenovo for US$2.91 billion. Lenovo will get the chance to gain a foothold in the US market, and Google will hold onto most of Motorola's patent portfolio. Still, a good 2,000 of those patents and a license on the rest will go to Lenovo, The Verge reported. Motorola and Apple clashed over these patents a number of times, and it'll be interesting to see how the landscape will change now that Lenovo holds some of these assets.
