Google is believed to also be open to a deal, but the two sides appear very far apart in the kind of deal they envision. Sources close to Microsoft say the company is interested only in the kind of deal that would see the balance of licensing revenue headed in its direction.
So Google (now the official owner of Motorola) is going to cut a deal with Microsoft to pay them a portion of each Android handset sale? Yeah… Don’t see that happening. But it would be pretty humorous.
