They bought it for the patents, and kept it at 'arms length' because they were probably not unanimous about keeping the hardware business from day 1.  Two years later and the evidence points to a very difficult business to compete in.  I don't think Google has lost anything or changed their plan.  It was probably a decision they were looking at all along.



That said, lets hope the deal gets done quickly.  Then Lenovo can either shoot the motoactv and put it to rest, or do something with it *fast*.
