Motorola Set-top-box en vente, Nokia intéressés

Il est fort intéressant de constater que Nokia possédait une branche spécialisée dans les terminaux numériques et l’ayant cédée par le passée soit désormais désireuse de revenir sur ce marché certes lucratif ;o)

Motorola Inc.’s shares received a boost Wednesday on speculation that the Schaumburg-based company may be selling its networks-equipment unit to competitor Nokia Siemens Networks. Motorola is planning to spin off its mobile phone and television set-top-box units into an independent, publicly traded company called Motorola Mobility in the first quarter of 2011. The remaining company, to be called Motorola Solutions, would consist of the networks business and enterprise mobility solutions, the unit that makes communications gear for public safety agencies and industrial clients. If Motorola were to divest its networks division, Motorola Solutions would be left with just enterprise mobility. Late Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Nokia Siemens and Motorola are in talks for the networks business, which makes infrastructure and equipment for wireless operators, in a deal that could be worth $1.1 billion to $1.3 billion.
