Cable infrastructure vendor Arris (ARRS) and U.K. set-top box maker Pace have "made the most compelling bids" for Motorola Mobility's (GOOG) set-top/cable infra unit, Bloomberg reports. A complex financing structure in which Google maintains equity and patents might prevent a deal from closing this year. P-E firms are said to be uninterested in the unit, which has to contend with an industry shift towards cloud-based apps, and potentially costly litigation with TiVo. Cisco's (CSCO) cable unit could benefit from any turmoil related to the sale. (previous)
