Does anybody elss wjsh Google would make an attempt at HP/Palms p
One issue that I have with the Motorola patents is they are for the most part "FRAND" Patents. I just don't believe they will work well and have already been shown not to. In fact there has been much said by judges etc on this.
I believe the best defense is Palms Patent Portfolio. Many software and hardware related patents. And arguably the KING of them all essentially being a patent on the "smartphone". I personally have always been a big fan of Palm. And to this day bieve it to be the best OS in many ways...unfortunately they were slow to produce the hardware and get a grip on the market. But what a great community just like this one. (sorry... went a bit off topic)...........
I researched their many patents recently as I have before. And it is the Portfolio in my eyes that could end this litigation nightmare. FRAND patents aren't a good defense... And I am betting those patents could be bought for a steal when you consider the grand scale of things.
In the end I believe that software patent law will be changing in the not so distant future. But till then I think this could be one of the best purchases Google ever made even if HP wanted compensation exceeding what they paid for Motorola. If HP even would consider selling it...
What do you think?.. What HP/Palm patents that you are aware of that could be used?... Please share and look over HP/Palms patents.. I am exhausted by Apple which I think could do well without all the litigation...don't you?
