Fortune: Google bid $10B for WhatsApp

  • Google (GOOG) offered to acquire WhatsApp for $10B, Fortune reports.
  • While the figure is far less than the $19B Facebook is paying, there's no word on whether it would have been in cash and shares, or all in cash - Facebook is paying "just" $4B in cash.
  • Unlike with Facebook, Google's bid for WhatsApp also didn't come with the offer of a board seat.
