Will I continue to get Android updates with Lenovo owning Motorola?

Episode 1053 (10:35)

Geoffrey from Baton Rouge, LA
Motorola Moto X

Geoffrey is concerned that he won't get the software updates in a timely fashion like with a pure Google phone now that Motorola won't be owned by Google anymore. Leo suspects there won't really be an issue. First, it'll take awhile to get approval from both the US and Chinese governments. On top of that, people were concerned about the ThinkPad under Lenovo, and that is now the best laptop in the business.

The other sad news is that Google is killing the Nexus and will no longer offer hardware with the Google brand. It's too bad because they were great phones. It's clear that Google has made a deal with manufacturers to offer pure Google handsets if Google doesn't compete with them.
