Indian longshot to bid for Motorola’s phones?

Friday 11 April, 2008

Wailin Wong must be scraping the bottom of the barrel @ the Tribune to come up with this beauty,  Indian firm may make offer for Motorola’s cell phone division

This just doesn’t seem to make sense from any angle.  Videocon makes appliances which have little to do with mobile phones.  Videocon doesn’t appear to have the capital resources to pull this off & pulling the $ together these days is extremely difficult, so I don’t see them raising much capital for this venture.  Sure growing Indian companies are interested in expanding when times for them are good, but let’s be realistic.  There may be a synergy in managing outsourced manufacturing, but otherwise I don’t see much of a fit.  So why write this article?  Is there some quota for the # of articles WW must contribute to Sam Zell?  Why am I writing an entry on an article that shouldn’t be written…?
