Google's (GOOG -3.6%) primary reason for seeking to acquire Motorola (MMI) was gaining a hardware partner who knows how to build the next generation of phones, not the patents, Eric Schmidt says.

    Then why didn't Google buy MMI in 2008 or 2009? See http://bit.ly/rduxPZ ...There were no "nibbles" for MMI. It was only when the vultures descended on Nortel's carcass that MMI became worth $12.5 billion.
