I think Google, Apple, or Microsoft should seriously consider buying Motorola Mobility. The company has just a 6.6B market cap, while it has $3.2B in cash ($225M more still coming from MSI), $2.4B in deferred tax assets, and more patents than Nortel or InterDigital. With the value of the patents somewhere north of $3B, that’s more than $8.5B (~$2B over market) before assigning any value to the mobile or set-top businesses, which are on pace to do 14B in revenue this year.I’d imagine that Google could potentially make the purchase with a partner (like Samsung or HTC) and have them take the operating businesses while keeping the patents to defend Android and the Open Handset Alliance.

From your lips to Goog's ears. Nicely done.
