With Motorola Mobility now under Google's (GOOG) control, Microsoft (MSFT) is reportedly hoping a settlement can be reached over the companies' bitter patent dispute, which has resulted in Android and Xbox injunctions (I, II) flying left and right. A source claims Microsoft and Motorola were close to a deal last summer, but it's added both sides are now further apart.
