It was back in October 2011 when we reported that Google had acquired Motorola Mobility. Google said back then that it was buying Motorola to “protect Android,” and for that purpose it paid $12 billion. It was announced that Motorola Mobility would be run as a separate business, which now has a new logo that touts a few Google touches.
This new Motorola Mobility logo was initially spotted by The Verge on Techweek’s website, which is a tech conference that Motorola is co-sponsoring. Most of us remember the all caps “MOTOROLA” brand in the logo, that has now been replaced with an all lower case version of the company’s name. Its softer and not at all bulky like its predecessor. In the middle, the classic M badge persists, however it loses the bright red color. Around it there’s a ring filled with different colors, and down below it touts the “a Google company” branding. The logo is not the only new thing we’ll be seeing from Motorola, the company’s much rumored Android flagship X smartphone is expected to be unveiled in the first week of August.
