Rumors have emerged that Google (GOOG) has offered Motorola Mobility's (MMI) phone business to Huawei "at a high price," though a WSJ source denies it. Officially, Google (GOOG) remains committed to holding onto the phone business, and says there will be a "firewall" between it and the company's Android unit, so as to prevent conflicts of interest. Nonetheless, Android partners aren't thrilled.

    I like the Motorola Webtop/Lapdock series of products and certainly hope it doesn't go to a Chinese manufacturer, but it seems to make sense for Google to unload the handset business just as general strategy.
