Google could sell Motorola set-top unit this year, says report

Google could move quickly to sell the Home division of recently acquired Motorola Mobility, which includes its set-top box and cable headend equipment activities, according to US reports.

According to Light Reading Cable, citing un-named industry insiders, Google could start the sale process early next month, with an initial round of bidding to be held in October ahead of a deal as early as mid-December. However, another source cited by Light Reading said that Google could take time to assess and secure intellectual property assets from the unit before putting it up for sale.
