Google Unites Hardware Groups

Google has consolidated its fractured hardware groups into a new division run by Motorola veteran Rick Osterloh in a bid to better align software with hardware technology.

Osterloh will oversee products including Nexus phones and tablets, wearable computer Glass (now called Project Aura), Internet router OnHub, audio and video Cast devices, and experimental mobile hardware.

The Alphabet unit acquired handset maker Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion in 2012 but sold it in 2014 to Lenovo. Before joining Google this month, Osterloh was president of Motorola Mobility.
