Google (GOOG) is expected to put Motorola Mobility's cable unit (set-top boxes + infrastructure gear) on sale as early as this fall, sources tell Light Reading. This is in-line with a March NY Post report. Many have expected Google to sell the cable division, given the discomfort pay-TV providers feel about buying hardware from the owner of YouTube and Google TV. One source adds Google will probably hold onto the division's patents.

    Yeah. Like I want to invest in a company whose patents are all owned by Google? I suppose they better have some kind of lifetime license at a reasonable rate, but read the fine print (or just trust it...).
