Google has rehired former executive Rick Osterloh to lead its hardware businesses, which it plans to consolidate under a single division, according to news reports published last week. Osterloh, who recently stepped down as president of Motorola, reportedly will head up Google’s Nexus business, which will include a suite of products dubbed the “living room.” “It looks like Google is trying to develop a coherent hardware product strategy and fix the hodgepodge collection of hardware products,” analyst Kevin Krewell said.
