Motorola yesterday said it will buy key assets from mobile phone maker Sendo. The company will acquire the engineers and technology patents from Sendo, which has gone into financial administration (a form of bankruptcy protection).
Motorola, the second biggest mobile phone maker in the world, said it would take on Sendo's 200 core research and development team in order to improve its ability to tailor phones specifically for individual mobile network operators.

Motorola did not reveal the terms of the deal, which includes test equipment and Sendo's entire intellectual property portfolio of about 50 existing technology patents and 40 pending patents.
