Motorola Remains Independent, No Necessary Nexus in Future

While Google's purchase of the Motorola group may mean many things for Google, especially along the lines of patents, Motorola will, if Andy Rubin and Motorola's Sanjay Jha are to be trusted, still act as a separate company.

Prepping your video for your 10-inch Android tablet

The Motorola Xoom, for those that have one, you love it right. I know I do. I'm always showing people how fancy it is and all the cool things I can do.
