What does Motorola acquisition mean to Google?

Google's USD 12.5bn deal to acquire Motorola has baffled analysts and stock market. Here are different opinions:

Motorola Acquisition
Motorola Mobility
Strengths Weakness
Opportunities According to Google, it will strengthen Google patent portfolio and will help in countering "competitive threats". Strain ties with allies like HTC and Samsung. Partners may start planning to switch to alternate platforms.
Threats Owning a platform will help in delivering better user experiences. Phone manufacturers may alienate from this deal.

Like Apple, Google is also seeking expansion in mobile market and might want to launch Google's Tablet. Perhaps Motorola's acquisition would help in realizing this dream.
