He said: “There is something about the Android ecosystem and Android approach that has produced a platform, an ecosystem, of enormous global scale; so much greater than I expected. “To me, that’s why we needed Motorola Mobility to be part of it. We have to play in this ecosystem, we have to be competitive andwe have to do it at the state of the art.”
