ecosystem. However, our vision for Android is unchanged and Google
remains firmly committed to Android as an open platform and a vibrant
open source community. We will continue to work with all of our valued
Android partners to develop and distribute innovative Android-powered
devices.”


The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including

stockholders. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2011 or
