Microsoft-Nokia deal better than Google-Motorola: Kontera

Redmond, Washington-based tech giant Microsoft Corp's recently announced Nokia acquisition deal is better than Internet search giant's acquisition of Motorola nearly two years back, many analysts say.

Microsoft hit a deal with Finnish tech giant Nokia to acquire its handset unit for $7.2 billion. Google acquired Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion in 2011.

Motorola blocked from enforcing German sales ban against Microsoft Xbox

Upholding an earlier order by a Seattle judge, in the Microsoft-Motorola patent dispute, a three-judge panel in San Francisco recently ruled that Motorola Mobility - which is owned by Google - is not in a position to enforce a German court's injunction order against Microsoft.

According to a Bloomberg report, Motorola lost appeal in the Microsoft Xbox case when the federal appeals panel in San Francisco said that the Seattle court order was appropriately tailored; and thus blocked Motorola's enforcement of the sales ban against Microsoft.
