I am really interested in trying a Nest in my house. Looks like Google is going to be everywhere.
The search giant announced Monday that it’s buying connected device maker Nest Labs for $3.2 billion in cash.
Fadell told Fortune’s Dan Primack that Google “made a very strong pitch for how we could have all the resources of a large company while retaining the independence of a next-generation Nest.”
“This allows us to accelerate and stay in front of the coming wave of products for what we like to call the conscious home,” Fadell said.
