According to Google press release, the deal will help Google in its efforts to develop more effective tools for creating, serving and analyzing emerging mobile ads formats.

Google believed the deal will also give advertisers and publishers more choice in the growing area of mobile advertising while improving users’ mobile experience with more ad-supported content and applications. “Mobile advertising has enormous potential as a marketing medium and while this industry is still in the early stages of development, AdMob has already made exceptional progress in a very short time,” said Susan Wojcicki, Google’s vice president of product management.
