It would be welcome to see it next month but I wonder how much of a delay there will be due to Verizon fiddling with the firmware?
I don't think that Google wants to flip Motorola, after all, it was the Motorola Droid that put Android on the map. Motorola has been committed to Android while the other players played "double agents" making phones for other OSes in addition to Android. Google would be a fool to sell Motorola off.

Google wants the Moto patents as much as the company.
Maybe we will see something revolutionary beyond the Droid design in a year lr do?
I figure Motorola will remain a separate brand from Google, but my guess is that some aspects of the companies will do a lot more talking than they did before the acquisition. It would be stupid not to allow such a thing. And my guess is some of the overriding philosophy of Google will used at Moto. In some respects those ideals are VERY different between these to companies with Motorola being an pure internal innovator and protector of their innovations while Google is more of a share and borrow variety innovator not so concerned about all things being proprietary.
Mobiles are a lot different in that they are much more integrated products than what was the IBM compatible PC hardware window gained success on. But a lot of the little nuances among all these different devices could probably be a lot better "known" if you will be the Android source. Even if Google doesn't help Moto so much as they force Moto to help Google, I think you would still keep other OEMs happy. My guess is they would be most concerned if Moto was getting special treatment with new versions of Android and gaining sales advantages through them.
So what is the next result for future Motorola phones, nexus like?
