    During its Q1 earnings call (webcast, live blog), Google (GOOG) admits lower rates for mobile ads are contributing to its cost-per-click weakness, as are new search ad formats and revenue-sharing agreements with OEMs and carriers. However, the company expresses optimism mobile ad rates will improve, given mobile advertising is in its early stages, and has the ability to drive local commerce.  GOOG +0.4% AH. (more)

    More on Google's Q1: The new share structure is defended via another letter praising Google's long-term focus (previous). Ad click rates fell another 6% Q/Q and 12% Y/Y, backing up recent fears. Paid clicks rose 7% Q/Q and 39% Y/Y, up from Q4's 34% and likely fueled by mobile. International sales were 54% of revenue. Capex relatively mild at $607M, down from Q4's $951M. Headcount growth was a modest 610 (helps explain the earnings beat). GOOG +1.2% AH. (PR)

    During its earnings call, Google (GOOG) attributes the decline in its cost-per-click, partly responsible for its Q4 miss, to forex issues and unnamed changes it's made to increase its paid clicks. The company also says its display ad business is now on a $5B run rate (up from $2.5B in Oct. '10), and that 250M Android devices have been activated (up from 200M in November). GOOG -8.7% AH.

    More on Google: International revenue fell to 53% of total from 55% in Q3, a decline that suggests European weakness played a large role in the shortfall. Paid clicks +34% Y/Y (+28% in Q3), but cost-per-click fell 8% Q/Q and Y/Y. 69% of revenue from Google sites, steady with Q3. Free cash flow was $2.97B, slightly below net income of $3.13B, thanks to capex of $951M (12% of revenue). GOOG -9.9% AH. (PR)

    Though analysts "officially" expect Microsoft (MSFT) and IBM to respectively deliver EPS of $0.76 and $4.62 after the bell today, unofficial Street forecasts are somewhat higher, claims WhisperNumber. On the flip side, Google (GOOG), whose lack of formal guidance makes estimating earnings a very imprecise art, is said to have a whisper number slightly below the analyst consensus of $10.49/share.

    Motorola Mobility (MMI) estimates Q4 sales at $3.4B, flat vs. the year-ago period and below $3.9B consensus; it shipped ~10.5M mobile devices, including ~5.3M smartphones vs. 4.9M units Y/Y. Results were impacted by "the increased competitive environment in the mobile device business and higher legal costs associated with ongoing intellectual property litigations."
