The massive $12.5 billion merger of Google and smartphone and tablet maker Motorola Mobility went over two major hurdles today. First, The European Commission announcedthat it has given its approval for the merger, which was first announced in August 2011.
In its decision, the European Commission said that it approved the combination of Google and Motorola “mainly because it would not significantly modify the market situation in respect of operating systems and patents” for smartphones and tablets.
Google posted up its own blog post announcing the merger approval, stating:
As we outlined in August, the combination of Google and Motorola Mobility will help supercharge Android. It will also enhance competition and offer consumers faster innovation, greater choice and wonderful user experiences.
That doesn’t mean that the European Commission is giving the combination of Google and Motorola a blank slate. In the press release, Joaquín Almunia, Commission Vice President, stated, “… the Commission will continue to keep a close eye on the behaviour of all market players in the sector, particularly the increasingly strategic use of patents.”
Later on Monday, the US Justice Department announced its own approval of the deal. It stated, “The division concluded that the specific transactions at issue are not likely to significantly change existing market dynamics.”
The Google-Motorola merger still has to be approved by regulators in China, Taiwan and Israel before it becomes official.

CEO & founder
Almost as much as the increase in sales that I received with my Google Advertising Campaign, I enjoyed how the folks at Digital Traffic Factory didn’t try to BS me and helped make me understand (as thick as I am) what each thing they were talking about was. I had someone handling my ‘SEO’ for years, and I never knew what was going on. Digital Traffic Factory showed me – in our first meeting – where I could see the SEO ‘stuff’ on my website. Come to find out, the person who I ihad been paying for SEO wasn’t doing a single thing.
Our partnership showed us promising new ways to promote our company. Today we use analytics and more accurate traffic data to help decide our next move. The digital space is an essential tool for retail and positioning ourselves well is critical in an increasingly competitive field."
