Nortel and Motorola in talks to combine their mobile infrastructure businesses

So over on Yahoo! this article is interesting.  The advantage to Motorola is clear, more cash for a business it does not appear to run well.

The advantage to Nortel is less clear.  Nortel already has switching and radio kit for a variety of wireless technologies and air interfaces. We’ll need to wait until more information becomes available.  I wonder if Nortel would get the iDEN infrastructure busines, too?
