http://www.talkandroid.com – If you were to look deep within Bloomberg’s lengthy recap of Google’s recent Motorola acquisition, you would notice that Motorola wasn’t the only company Google acquired throughout the whole process. Google also purchased the San Francisco industrial design studio, Mike and Maaike, who can be credited for designing the G1, Google’s first Android phone, and the Android Smartphone 1 (pictured above – a device that was used internally for testing the Android OS). Not only has the bay area designer helped Google in the past, they also helped in designing Microsoft’s X-Box (IT news)
