併購 Motorola Mobility, Nexus 親生仔會是?

Google 公佈併購 Motorola Mobility 的計劃後,Android 用家最關心的其中一個問題,就是 Nexus 系列親生仔會否由 Motorola 來接手。Nexus One 由 HTC 代工,而 Nexus S 就由 Samsung 負責,往後會如何呢?

Goolge 的 Andy Rubin 就表示現行 Nexus 的造法不會改變,而 Motorola 並不會有優待。

Andy Rubin 約略講解了 Nexus 系手機的合作過程。

Android Nexus Program

每年在接近聖誔的時間,就會挑選一間手機廠商合作,開發來年的 Nexus 手機。Google 會和手機廠商一起組成開發團隊,也會包括其他部件的公司代表,會在 9 至 12 個月的時間研發新的 Nexus 手機。

Andy Rubin 表示不會改變現有做法。併購後,Motorola Mobility 會是一個獨立的業務。在 Nexus 系列手機上,Motorola 仍需跟其他廠商競爭,經挑選才可成為新 Nexus 手機的製造廠商。

We have this strategy where we have this Nexus program, and we have this lead device strategy. That strategy has worked quite well to help focus the team.

What we do is that we select each — around Christmastime of each year — we select a manufacturer that we work very closely with to release a device in that time frame. That includes, also, semiconductor companies and all of the components that go in the device.

Essentially the teams huddle together in one building. They jointly work in these development efforts — they go on for nine to 12 months. And ultimately at the holiday season, or right before it, devices pop out that are based on this effort.

We don’t expect that to change at all. The acquisition is going to be run as a separate business. They will be part of that bidding process, and part of that lead development process. And obviously Android remains open to other partners to use as they are today.
