Google has announced that it has big plans for newly-acquired Motorola.
While there were rumours that Google's purchase of Motorola was purely to take ownership of hundreds of patents, the company has stated that it has ambitions to compete with other handset providers, Techradar reports.
Google chairman Eric Schmidt stated that the company had always wanted a stake in a hardware business and it was going to meet with Motorola staff now that the acquisition had finally been finalised.
"As part of that we're going to announce the things we're going to do but for your purposes there will be more investment in Motorola devices under the Motorola brand and a lot more investment in Android," he stated at Google's Big Tent conference.
With many Motorola smartphones still running on older Android operating systems, Techradar reported that this could soon change now Google is in control.
Earlier in the week, Dennis Woodside, chief executive officer of Motorola Mobility, said that the company wants to create wonderful devices that are used all over the world.
