Motorola Hints At Its Own Mobile OS, Acquires Azingo

Moto <3 AzingoAfter rumours of HTC contemplating their own OS, it seems Motorola may also be heading back into the OS game, with Co-CEO Sanjay Jha hinting at the importance of having their own OS.

Android And Me are running a story that links the Co-CEO’s comments with a recent acquisition by the company.

It appears that Motorola recently acquired Azingo, a mobile platform company that already has their own linux-based OS, Azingo Mobile 2.0. The OS already includes a Webkit-based browser, a web runtime, Flash runtime, and full developer tools.

Whether this points to Motorola’s desire to develop an entirely new OS, or just them merging Azingo’s technologies/engineers into Moto’s own Android skin, Motoblur, remains to be seen, but it’s fun to dream, isn’t it?
