Google Forget patent trolling - Android's biggest weakness, and most daunting obstacle to overcome, is its complete and utter lack of updates. Motorola has detailed its upgrade plans for Ice Cream Sandwich - and it ain't good. If the company Google just bought can't even update its phones properly, what can we expect from the rest?

The author of the article said "If the company Google just bought can't even update its phones properly, what can we expect from the rest?". Common, they just bought the company, it is not still integrated. Don't expect a miracle.

Also, very likely they bought it because of (1) Patents, Patents, Patents, and (2) Have a in-house manufacturer so they can release the default phones faster, and (3) Do I said Patents.

They haven't bought anything yet. They have announced a deal to purchase Motorola Mobility but the purchase hasn't happened yet. The deal just got US and EU approval last week and is still awaiting approval from China.
