The end of Android??

Quote:
Late yesterday an ITC judge ruled that smartphone maker HTC has infringed two Apple patents, and it seems likely that every single Android device out there infringes the same patents

Eric Schmidt commented on it:

Schmidt, however, remained bullish over HTC's chances of overturning the initial ITC decision.

Asked if Google would help foot HTC's legal bills should they lose, he said: "We will make sure they don't lose, then." He added that the search giant will continue to support its Taiwanese partner in this legal skirmish but declined to go into details.

Yes, Android will start to lose larger amounts of the phone market share in the next year. It has already lost some market share in the past year. It will be a slow death but something like this could kill this quickly.

I think you are right. Once Nokia starts rolling out Windows8 devices (as per their agreement with Microsoft), other manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung will have a second look at their Android strategy. After all, Nokia is still the largest provider of portable devices. Their recent growth was only hampered because Symbian did not cut it any more.

I for one am not a fan of these "software" type patents. They are often so vague, and usually describe some type of "prior art". I think companies should spend more time making sure their products are "the bomb" and desired by all, versus taking the time to patent all types of frivolous actions to ensure that nobody else can do something similar without paying you a royalty for figuring out a way to do it better.

I mean seriously, this is the "first patent" abstract

Quote:
A system and method causes a computer to detect and perform actions on structures identified in computer data. The system provides an analyzer server, an application program interface, a user interface and an action processor. The analyzer server receives from an application running concurrently data having recognizable structures, uses a pattern analysis unit, such as a parser or fast string search function, to detect structures in the data, and links relevant actions to the detected structures. The application program interface communicates with the application running concurrently, and transmits relevant information to the user interface. Thus, the user interface can present and enable selection of the detected structures, and upon selection of a detected structure, present the linked candidate actions. Upon selection of an action, the action processor performs the action on the detected structure.
So more or less, any system which presents a user with a screen soliciting choices and the user indicates choices and then the system acts upon those choices and updates the user interface to reflect those choices is infringing upon a concept invented and awarded to Apple. Really? So, when I go the Seven Forums, and I click on New Posts, and it changes the display to reflect the newly posted items since my last visit, this is more or less in violation of this same concept. Somebody should report this to Apple immediately.

Seems like these patents would make it illegal for any company to make a smart phone. 1st infringement came from the phone recognizing an email address or phone number then giving the user the option to email or call... Like EVERY smart phone out there... I hate apple.
