quote: Microsoft tried to include Google in the purchase of the Nortel Patents. Instead Google decided they would rather have all those to themselves. Stop trying to make them look like saints. The entire reason handset makers are vulnerable is because Google hides behind giving away Android, leaving all the responsibility for licensing in the hands of the OEMs. If Google would actually license the software then there wouldn't be a problem. It sounds more like Google is a sore loser because they screwed up by not joining the consortium that purchased Nortel, and other, patent pools.
