Meh. They make it sound like this is the end for Android. A potential blow? Yes. The demise of Google's OS? Pretty much not going to happen.

And if those companies try to enforce patents in an anticompetitive manner in Europe they will be cut down by the EC, just as Samsung has been.

So worst case is they are forced to licence the patents.

In the end, it will be the lawyers of both sides who will benefit from this commotion.

I have to laugh at this as Samsung make parts for the iPhone and most of those manufacturers also make Windows Phones!!

No, Rockstar will win out as well because they'll be making money off every one of the hundreds of millions of android devices sold each quarter.

Also, love they name they picked for their company lol :p

I guess it's a good thing that a ton of Android devices sell daily... 

 

I think Legion of Doom would have been a better name, instead of Rockstar.  That way they could of staffed a guy named Solomon Grundy.

I'm not so sure.

 

Google acquired a bunch of patents too when they purchased Motorola I believe.

And yet they (and their OEM's) are still paying a pretty penny to Microsoft.  And Microsoft is getting this $$$, outside of being a part of Rockstar.  So they get to Double Dip on Google.

Because it is a group they will have to split it.  So I kinda see your point.

 

Google isn't going to tank because of this.  But their is no way, that the bean counters want to look at the numbers and see that many "Commas" in the amount of $$$ paid in patent fees.

I think everyone has been waiting on this. Google has gotten too big.This may be too little, too late though.
