    is another confirmation of that. Stipp: We got news this week that [TICKER:GOOG] Google is selling the Motorola smartphone business to Lenovo for $2.9 billion. It seems like they're selling for a lot less than they paid for it, but there is more to the story. Glaser: They brought it for $12.5 billion just back in 2012. So at first glance, this looks like a pretty big loss and a complete failure of Google strategy. But I don't think it's quite that cut and dry. We see that Google is keeping most of the patents. When they made the Motorola deal, that was one of the big things that they talked up was that this will give them a lot of ammunition in the patent wars--being able to have better patent agreements and protect the Android ecosystem, because they would control so much of the underlying intellectual property. That's still going to be the case here. They had already sold off the set-top box business, and got some cash there, and it really helped solidify the position of Android. Getting rid of the handset business helps Google focus on what their core strengths are, which is the software and the services. It was never going to be able to make great hardware devices. It's just something that they weren't able to do in the short term that they had Motorola . Rick Summer, who covers Google for [Morningstar], says that Google still controls a lot of value in that smartphone stack. Being able to control that software, being able to sell those ads, that's where the money is, that's where the potential value is. And Lenovo can probably be a better steward of the hardware business--something they are more of an expert in. Let them deal with that, and let Google really focus on what they're best at.
