Is Google planning to make Arora CEO at Motorola Mobility? On The VAR Guy, looks at the possibility. “If Arora’s CEO appointment comes to pass, it’s worth wondering how fast Motorola Mobility will start building and producing pure-Google phones with hardware and software integration.

It’s also worth asking whether Google would proudly proclaim these phones were ‘built by Motorola Mobility’ or try and hide that fact,” he writes.  What’s your opinion?
