Google vows not to charge for popular operating system
Google will not start charging for its Android operating system despite acquiring phone manufacturer Motorola.
The search giant's chief executive Eric Schmidt is reported by the Wall Street Journal to have said: "We will run (Motorola) sufficiently independently so it will not violate the openness of Android."
Neither will the acquisition of the mobile phone developer have an impact on its other Android partners.
Google is also reportedly interested in buying South Korean search engine Daum.
