InterDigital Skids After Google Goes for Motorola Mobility


BANGALORE (Reuters) - Shares of InterDigital Inc plunged 23 percent on Monday after Google's $12.5 billion Mobility Holdings buy sparked worries that the search giant may no longer be interested in the company's wireless patents.

Companies like InterDigital have come to the fore after Apple, Microsoft, RIM and three other companies colluded recently to thwart Google's mobile ambitions, outbidding it in a multi-billion dollar auction for Nortel's wireless patents.

In July, InterDigital said it was looking at a possible sale of the company and the Wall Street Journal had later reported that Google might be in the race for its patents.
