Google, Motorola Mobility meger deal has now been closed. Larry Page, CEO, Google first announced that the company is acquiring Motorola Mobility on August 15, 2011. Since, then the deal has gone through various regulatory, and just recently China gave its node to the deal.

Page said, "I'm happy to announce the deal has closed. Motorola is a great American tech company, with a track record of over 80 years of innovation. It's a great time to be in the mobile business, and I'm confident that the team at Motorola will be creating the next generation of mobile devices that will improve lives for years to come."

Motorola is a great American tech company that has driven the mobile revolution, with a track record of over 80 years of innovation, including the creation of the first cell phone -- Motorola's StarTAC. The company, was among the first to bet on Android.

"Sanjay Jha, has stepped down as the CEO Motorola Mobility, and would be replaced with Googler Dennis Woodside takes over as CEO," Page said.

The company says the acquisition will help Google "supercharge" the Android ecosystem: while Motorola will be making devices using the platform, it will also remain open.

"Dennis, helped Google building businesses across the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe and Russia. More recently he helped the company increase revenue in the U.S. from $10.8 billion to $17.5 billion in under three years as President of the Americas region," Page stated.

Also, at a Google Zeitgeist event taking place on the outskirts of London this week, Page has been spotted wearing "Google Glasses."

The pictures of Page wearing funky augmented reality eyewear are possibly the first -- although his Google co-founder Sergey Brin has also been seen wearing them in the wild. Today's pictures come courtesy of a Google employee, who posted them on Google +.

"My life is now complete - met Larry Page today! Thank you for visiting EMEA," the employee wrote alongside his pictures.
