OEMs are already raising an eyebrow (or both) at the Google-Motorola deal and rumors have started surfacing of manufacturers being unhappy about the move. Samsung is even said to be considering leaving Android for its own platform.

Walter Deppeler, president of Acer’s operations in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said Microsoft was the real winner of the Google-Motorola deal, “as the deal makes Google a direct rival to its phone-making clients”. “They work against some of their clients,” he said. “It was a good gift to Microsoft”. There was no official statement from Acer for the future but the president of operations said the company will definitely take the deal in consideration before deciding on future platform choices.
